Flooding From Entranceway
A common area that basement water comes from is the outside entranceway. The TrenchDrain is engineered specifically for this type of situation. It resembles half of a basement drainage pipe, with a grated opening fitted snugly on top. The grate is flush or slightly below the floor, eliminating any tripping hazard. Any water passing over the drain is collected through the openings and redirected to your sump pump.
Water From Wall-Floor Joint
The water in this home leaked in through a few different areas, including the spot where the floor meets the wall, or the wall-floor joint. The perfect solution to this problem would be to install the WaterGuard drainage system. WaterGuard is installed around the perimeter of the room, and collects water from both the ground and walls before it can even enter the basement.
Mold and dust mites thrive in conditions where there are high levels of humidity and moisture prevalent. With no way to drain the standing water, water can evaporate and cause problems. Both mold and dust mites need moisture from the air to survive. When humidity levels drop below 60%, they will not be able to thrive. One of our sump pumps could easily rid the basement of water and prevent this from happening.
