In this photo you can see that the water had made its way up the wall. The mold started growing and gave the basement the "musty" smell. Once mold finds organic matter such as cardboard boxes its tough to get out unless caught in time.
In this photo you can see that there wasn't really an area for water to go. The damage was done to the floors and the walls in the basement.
In this picture you can see that some of the mold turned into white powder. This happens when some of the mold can't find organic material to eat. This however still needs to be treated to make sure that water damage is stopped in its tracks.
This is a photo of the TripleSafe sump pump we installed in the basement. Also attached to the sump pump is the battery that helps the third pump turn on if the power goes out.
The WaterGuard was installed bellow the floor to make sure that we capture all water coming in. The WaterGuard was then covered with gravle and cement as you can see by the darker spots in the cement.
The basement now is not only dry but it also has a cleaner feeling. The basement is fully protected from any further water coming in.
The E. Family had continous water problems through the years which eventually damaged their walls. With water making its way up a basement wall it turns into mold eventually which gives basements the "musty" smell. The homeowners contacted the experts at CT Basement systems and Brad made all their worries go away. We installed our Waterguard french drain system. This is our most reccomended french drain system because of its resistance to clogging, and the abilty to collect water coming from the wall. All the water collected would drain into the TripleSafe sump pump which is our most reliable sump pump system because it has three levels of protection. There are three pumps that if needed all have different roles. The first pump will star running if water starts coming in but if it can't keep up with the ammount of water coming in then the second pump will start up and run continously with the first pump. If the power goes out then the third pump will turn on and it will pump as much as half of a swimming pool. The last product that we installed was our BrightWall basement wall panels which is 100% waterproof and washable, and it creates a vapor barrier on your basement walls to block out water vapor and humidity. Like our other wall products, it can direct water seepage into your perimeter drain. The homeowners are now worry free when going into inclement weather.
