Over time, your basement’s orig­i­nal pro­tec­tions fail as soil erodes, cement cracks, foun­da­tions move and bar­ri­ers fail. Poor main­te­nance and ignor­ing ear­ly signs of base­ment water prob­lems could lead to the loss of prop­er­ty and pos­si­ble health problems.

Inte­ri­or Drain Systems:

Are installed under your base­ment floor, near the foun­da­tion and can be applied to base­ments where tra­di­tion­al tank­ing or oth­er meth­ods have failed but with min­i­mal dis­tur­bance to the orig­i­nal basement.

Base­ments with water enter­ing where the floor and wall meet or through floor cracks are most com­mon­ly the result of water being forced up beneath the floor due to hydro­sta­t­ic pressure.

Installing a stan­dard inte­ri­or drain tile sys­tem with a sump pump will allow an escape path for the water, reliev­ing hydro­sta­t­ic pres­sure, and keep­ing your floor dry. Act­ing quick­ly with a proven base­ment water­proof­ing solu­tion like an inte­ri­or drain tile sys­tem will save you mon­ey in the long run and pro­tect your home and family.

Var­i­ous prob­lems can occur if the prop­er inte­ri­or drain tile water­proof­ing sys­tem is not installed cor­rect­ly. The water dur­ing the rainy sea­son can enter the base­ment, and make it wet, dif­fi­cult to clean and harm the fur­ni­ture and oth­er items in a base­ment. This can also lead to struc­tur­al dam­age and expen­sive repairs in your home or com­mer­cial property.

The inte­ri­or drain tile sys­tem that is installed, must ensure the base­ment remains dry. There are var­i­ous inte­ri­or drain tile sys­tem advan­tages, it will pre­vent water from enter­ing the home and caus­ing many health prob­lems relat­ed to mold, fun­gus, and mildew.
