Job Stories From Mattaponi, VA
Basement Leaking in Mattaponi, VA

This homeowner in Mattaponi, VA asked us to inspect his home’s basement for problems regarding water leakage and damage, especially when there is heavy rain.  He told us that water filled up in his basement one to three inches every time it rains for more than two or three days. We sent out one of our experienced Home Performance Advisors to look at the basement and give the homeowner a free estimate.

Upon inspection, we found that there was efflorescence all over the foundation walls of the basement, a clear indication of water infiltration through the porous walls. Water seeps through, dragging the minerals and salts in the walls to the surface. The intrusion of this water contributes to the increase in relative humidity, adding to the potential for mold growth.

Mold and mildew can be found on the wood stairs in the basement. This tells us that there is plenty of moisture in the air. Mold needs elevated relative humidity, about 60%, and warm temperatures to grow on organic materials. Mold spores will rise into the home, along with musty odors, and can cause irritation to homeowners with mold allergies and asthma.

Funny odors and mold growth were not the only concerns of the homeowner, however. Many of the items stored down in the basement had been damaged during heavy rainstorms. This basement was in desperate need of some solutions to help combat the water leaking in. We proposed different options to the homeowner to help fix these issues.

To rectify these concerns, first, we would want to address the basement walls and stop the water from being able to leak through. We would mechanically fasten CleanSpace to the walls six to eight inches above outside grade. CleanSpace is a durable heavy-duty vapor barrier that will guard the basement against outside air and moisture influence by directing any water that finds its way through the foundation walls into the drainage system.

Then we proposed adding the WaterGuard Drainage System. We would dig a trench around the inside perimeter of the basement to install the drainage line connecting to the sump pump. WaterGuard is a drainage system that will collect water and drain it straight to the sump pump. The pump will shoot all the water out and away from the home to a designated area on the property chosen by the homeowner.

The sump pump we suggested for this basement is the TripleSafe Sump System. This system comes with a Zoeller 1/3 hp pump, a Zoeller ½ hp high volume pump, and an UltraSump battery back-up pumping system, perfect for basements and crawl spaces that have major leaks or flooding. If the ½ horsepower pump fails or is overwhelmed, the 1/3 horsepower pump will take over. If the primary pumps fail due to tripped circuit breakers or power outages, the UltraSump battery backup system will kick on until the primary pumps turn back on or the battery runs out. Together, the WaterGuard Drainage System and TripleSafe Sump System will help keep the basement dry.

The mold and mildew issue would be rectified using Shockwave antimicrobial, a disinfectant, and cleaner designed to kill mold at its source. It does not, however, prevent mold from growing back. The relative humidity and temperature would need to be controlled to prevent thriving mold spores.

If the homeowner chooses to proceed with this approach, the basement would be clear of water and protected from outside influence, the homeowner would no longer have to worry about the basement flooding, they would feel more comfortable in their home and have improved indoor air quality. If you are experiencing leaks or flooding within your basement then call The Drying Co./ThermalTec for a free estimate from one of our hardworking and trustworthy home performance advisors.
