Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Waterproofing Musty Home in Oshawa, ON

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018 by Stephanie Monticchio

Challenge

A home in Oshawa, Ontario had a basement that was constantly wet. The homeowner was complaining that the basement was always wet and it was causing odors in the main living areas of the home. It was also impossible to keep and store anything in the basement without it getting damaged, smelly and moldy. The secondary issue was that it was impossible to get the maximum value out of the house when it came time to re-sell.

Solution

The customer called Clarke Basement Systems and Steve Matthews explained the work that would be done to the home. Jose Martinez and the team came in and installed CleanSpace on the foundation walls, it will guide any water that is entering through the walls straight down into the WaterGuard. CleanSpace also will not allow the water vapor that is escaping the concrete to dissipate into the basement air. Waterguard was installed around the perimeter walls to collect water entering at the floor and wall joints. It would then be directed into the newly installed TripleSafe sump pump. 

The customer was extremely happy with the solution, as it immediately dried up the basement air, eliminating the house of the dank smell that had been there for years. The walls now look clean and bright with the CleanSpace wall membrane. Now that the basement is dry, the customer is happy that all their personal items can be stored in the basement with no concern for them getting wet.
