Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Waterproofing and Restoring a Damaged Basement in Mounds, IL
Water was leaking in a basement in Mounds, IL, and the sump system was failing to pump this water out. Because of this, the water was damaging the floor and walls and mold was beginning to grow. To solve these issues, Woods first installed a CleanSpace Basement Wall System. This is an economical way to cover ugly walls, stop water vapor from permeating them, and drain wall leaks. The white color will also brighten the basement, reflecting the light. Next, the WaterGuard System was installed. These drainage pipes intercept water at the perimeter of the basement and drain it toward the TripleSafe Sump Pump System, which will drain water from WaterGuard and below the basement and discharge it out of the house. This system also includes an UltraSump battery backup system, which turns on if the power goes out and effectively pumps out the water. A SaniDry Sedona was also installed. This high-capacity, high-efficiency dehumidification system also includes an air filtration system, all in a single unit. This system wrings the air dry, and its powerful blower moves the dry air in and around the basement. It also automatically drains the water it catches into WaterGuard, so there is no need to empty any bucket with this system. This basement will remain dry and clean for years to come thanks to these systems!
