How Does Lamunyon Fix Wet Basements?
We us a combination of the following methods and products to restore your basement to a dry, healthy environment:
Using a unique, multi-flow drain tile system installed along the perimeter of the basement, we can effectively divert water away from your basement walls and to a sump pump that removes the water. The drain tile system we use is the most advanced system available, and utilizes a perforated pipe filled with rock to capture and divert water. The pipes collect water, and allow it to drain toward the sump pump. This type of system is a semi-sealed encapsulation system, which can help prevent soil gasses like Radon and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) from entering your basement. If you require a sealed system to mitigate Radon gas and VOCs, we can evaluate your needs and provide specific recommendations for your basement.
This type of drain is installed along the wall in your basement, and has a low-profile, wide design that allows for concrete to be installed over the top of the drain. This drain system works to prevent water intrusion by preventing hydrostatic pressure through the use of a rubber seal on the back that presses into your basement wall to drain away water.
Sump Pump and Battery Back-up
Sump pumps work to drain water away from your home, reducing erosion and improving indoor air quality. At Lamunyon, the sump pumps we install are energy efficient and work in combination with other basement waterproofing products to create a permanent solutions for your basement water issues. Installing a sump pump with a battery backup ensures that should your home lose power, the sump pump will continue to operate, keeping your basement dry.
Dehumidifers work to manage unwanted moisture in your home. Our professional-grade dehumidifiers extract moisture from the air, maintaining healthy humidity levels and eliminating condensation concerns. The humidifiers we use are efficient and can be used in combination with a MERV 11 filter to also remove pollen, dust, dander, mold, and other allergens from the air. Ultimately, this creates a healthier environment and results in better indoor air quality, especially in cases where your furnace is located in the basement.
