End Basement Water Seepage Permanently!

Basement water seepage can be an ongoing issue that sometimes becomes just a fact of spring.  Water from saturated ground can find its way through just about any crack or seam in a basement  floor and  foundation.  Sometimes it can even soak directly through solid concrete.  If rising ground water becomes trapped, it can build 

"Hydrostatic" pressure, resulting in cracking and heaving.  


There are some quick fixes offered such as;  concrete sealants, channels you can glue on the floor,  installing sump holes wherever  puddles accumulate.  None of which are very effective or stand up over time.  The most reliable and permanent solution is an Interior Drain Tile System.  If installed correctly, it can permanently  guarantee against basement water seepage regardless of mode of entry.


BASEMENT WATER SEEPAGE 101

In-Home Radon Exposure can be a serious concern.   According to the EPA, it's the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.  Radon originates from deep uranium deposits.  As it's released from the soil beneath our homes, it becomes trapped and accumulates.  When inhaled it releases Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation directly into the lungs.  It's similar to receiving chest x-rays.  There is no proven safe level of exposure.  Whatever your radon level is, you want it to be lower.  The Upper Midwest has some the highest radon levels in the nation.  


In most cases a radon mitigation system can be installed quickly and at a reasonable cost.  Not only will a good mitigation system reduce radon levels, but it can reduce water vapor intrusion possibly eliminating the need for dehumidifiers.  It may lower other soil gasses as well, such as: methane, hydrocarbons and other contaminants.  According the the EPA, the most effective mitigation method is  Sub-Slab Depressurization.  And sub-slab depressurization is especially effective when incorporated with a drain tile system.
