Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: A Waterproofing System and Dehumidifier Installed in Brownsville, PA

Thursday, October 1st, 2015 by Alyssa Petrella

Challenge

Brownsville homeowner Bernadette had water infiltration in her stone foundation, unfinished basement that was used for storage. Her husband being a lung transplant survivor, she wanted a waterproofing system as well as a way to improve the overall air quality in her basement to ensure a safer living environment for her husband.

Solution

Service Advisor Michael Richmond conducted a free inspection of this basement. He proposed a waterproofing system that included an interior drainage system WaterGuard placing the drain against the wall on top of the footer in an area resistant to clogging. The drain will lead water to a sump pump; Michael had a SuperSump installed. The sump pump has a connected discharge line that pumps water out to an exterior downspout. Additionally Michael had noticed that the walls were excessively damp, so he applied our CleanSpace 20ml thick wall liner to act as a vapor barrier.

To improve the all over air quality he had our SaniDry dehumidifying system installed. The SaniDry can dehumidify and filter your air at the same time and is 3x more powerful than common household dehumidifiers, being able to purify up to 2,500 sq. ft.
