If your Bucyrus home currently smells musty or you've noticed standing water in your basement or worse yet, if you've noticed the growth of mold or stains on the walls in your home, it's time to contact us.
Basement leaks typically occur when water accumulates around the foundation of your home. Water then seeps into the basement through the floor and walls and begins to act as a catalyst for the growth of mold.
Mold and Stains in Your Basement
Mold - Mold is a eukaryotic organism that can endanger the structural integrity of your home AND it can cause some very grave health issues. Some early warning signs of mold are:
- increased difficulty breathing
- allergic reactions
- sore throats
Stained walls - Stained walls in your basement are warning signs of damaging wetness. As water amasses outside of your basement's wall, it can then permeate through the block resulting in an acidic residue or 'efflorescence.' The resulting wetness can lead to:
- ruined floor joists
- decayed wooden support beams
- higher than normal humidity levels
- ruined belongings that you've stored in your basement
- the growth of mold
Recommended Basement Waterproofing Solutions
Every solution that we recommend begins with a consultation. We'll thoroughly examine the environment under your home, then compile a plan of action to eliminate excess moisture in your basement. Our product lines and specialties are The NoWater Waterproofing System, our Sump Pump Dual Pump Pack, the Sante Fe Basement Dehumidifier and the Intelli-Pump battery back up sump pump.
- The NoWater Waterproofing System: Our NoWater system is a a draiange system that is installed along the footing of your basement. It's positioned on top of crushed stone or gravel to minimize its movement. The pipe is then attached to a sump pump. This system directs water from the floors, walls, cove joint, and ceiling to the sump pump where it will be directed safely away from your home. This waterproofing system is effective at resolving even the worst wetness problems below a home.
- Sump Pump Dual Pump Pack: This pump is only available through us, so you won't find it at your local home improvement store or repair shop. It has a multiple back up system that turns on when the main pump stops working, or if the power goes out. You don't need to worry about hitting any special switches, levers or buttons to activate it because it's all automatic!
- Sante Fe Basement Dehumidifier: This dehumidifier controls the amount of humidity in your basement. Once controlled, this inhibits the growth of dangerous molds. Our dehumidification product can cover up to 2,500 square feet, keeping the relative humidity level at or below fifty percent in your home.
- Intelli-Pump Battery Back Up: Intelli-pump is a battery back up sump pump which helps to protect your crawl space or basement. Its microprocessor controller checks for the status of the battery itself and the AC power in your home. Combined with our NoWater waterproofing system, this guarantees that your basement will remain safe, dry and healthy.
