Problem: The client decided to contact IcyReno after noticing water seepage in their basement during heavy rainfall. They had also noticed mold growth and a musty smell in their basement, indicating the presence of excess moisture.
Solution: After conducting a thorough inspection of the basement, we recommended an interior waterproofing solution that would address the root cause of the problem and prevent further water damage.
Steps we took: We excavated the perimeter of the basement floor to access the foundation walls and address any cracks. After cleaning the walls with a high-pressure washer, we repaired the cracks and holes using polyurethane injection. Next, we installed an interior drainage system along the perimeter of the basement, including a perforated pipe and gravel. Then, we applied a waterproofing membrane to the foundation walls and installed a vapor barrier over it to prevent moisture seepage.
Results: After completing the project, we tested the system to ensure that it was functioning properly. We also provided the client with a detailed maintenance plan to help them keep their basement dry and prevent any future water damage.
Conclusion: By implementing an interior waterproofing solution that addressed the root cause of the problem, we were able to provide our client with a dry, healthy, and safe basement environment. Our team of experts took all necessary steps to ensure that the project was completed efficiently and effectively, providing our client with peace of mind and protection against water damage.
