Moisture can damage framing, drywall and flooring in the basement. Moreover, excessive humidity can also harm your health. Fungus and mold spores spread through the air and cause different types of diseases. Therefore, it is essential to protect your house and family from that unpleasant humidity, and find the right Basement Flooding Solutions to avoid the problem in the future.
At first you might think that the main problem is choosing and purchasing the necessary equipment, but you would be surprised how easy this stage might be if you hire our team. Toronto Plumbing Group offers guidance on every stage of the installation process.
Every water supply is connected to the Sump Pump. The installation is quite complex and demands careful attention. If you attempt to install it yourself, pay attention to everything written in the instruction and follow it precisely. However, you do not need to worry if you hire a team of our Highly Qualifies Professional Plumbers to do the job and spare yourself an effort.
In old houses where the basement wasn’t constructed properly and with poor hydro isolation, mould and mildew are a constant occurrence, occasional flooding is present as well. In this case there are two possible solutions: Dig Up a Trench and Waterproof the Wall from the outside or to Install a Sump Pump, which would be much simpler and less costly.
To manage a successful Installation of a Drain Tile, you must follow the next steps:
- The first step to install a drain tile is to dig up a trench around your house.
- On the bottom of your trench you must make a layer of sand and gravel.
- Waterproofing of the foundation wall is necessary, better to do it in two layers.
- Pour some concrete solution on to the gravel and then comes the drainpipe itself.
- The filter layer is made of larger gravel and without sand.
- On top of it you put a net to keep the dirt from getting into the pipe and soiling it.
- The final set would be to put back all the dirt where you have taken it and to do some landscaping so you house would look cosy and beautiful again.
The Basement Sum Pump System consists of a controller with a battery fluid sensor and a duel float switch, a pump with a pipe adapter, a plastic wire tie, a charger, a battery box, and a battery cap. If you aim to complete the installation by yourself, you’ll need a whole set of other equipment.
Waterproofing your Basement is always a great deal of work. Water flows downhill, which means that your basement is the best place for it to stop. And with time the pressure of water takes over and water begins to penetrate the house through the Cracks and Holes in the Foundation, or even creating its own Cracks.
The main Problem with your Basement is you have to think how to keep the water out. Most of us have turned our basement not only into storage room, but also into entertainment chambers. If you let water into your house, you have to worry about painting failing, wood rotting, mould and mildew.
You have this invaluable space in your house that could be anything. You could turn it into a playroom or a luxurious bathroom with hot-tub, Jacuzzi, or make of it anything that you ever dreamt of, but there is a problem on your way. This problem is Moisture in your Basement.
Your basement often stands empty and useless. But it is a valuable living space that can be turned into anything you wish it to be. The only thing is to preserve it that way. And the first and foremost enemy of your comfort is the moisture.
Flooded Basement can occur for many reasons, and one of them is a Sewer Backup. This one is the worst of all. The less damaging ones are a Broken Pipe or Excessive Rainstorms. In any of these cases, you end up with a Wet Basement. And, which is the worst of all, with Mould on your Walls.
