To effectively keep your home dry and comfortable, your drains should always be in good working order. Areas like the basement and roof are dependent on drainage systems because they can quickly collect water. Some drainage systems end up being too short to consistently expel water from your home, resulting in ineffective and incomplete draining. Excess moisture can gradually turn into secondary water damage, and forgetting to monitor the moisture levels in your home can lead to leaks, mold and mildew infestation, noxious odors, wood rotting, and the like.
Basement Drainage Solutions
When you have a wet basement with excess water and moisture, it can wreak havoc on the comfort and the structural integrity of your entire home. If you have water collecting in the basement, you have to have the water removed and directed away from your home. One solution for your wet basement issues is to have a French Drain installed by Mount Valley Foundation Services.
An interior French drain is typically installed along the perimeter of the basement walls and works by channeling water that gets into your basement to a sump a pump system that pumps the water out and away from the structure of your home. It’s important to make sure you don’t have a wet basement problem because it can cause major structural issues – as well as wet drywall, mold growth, soaked carpets, concrete spalling, an uncomfortable humid indoor environment and high electric bills.
