Prevent Water Damage with French Drainage Systems
Water control and management in the crawlspace or around the home is essential for maintaining a home. Water first becomes a problem when the gutter spout comes down and makes the ground moist. It can pool in areas around the home, can cause wood rot, and can lead to a cracked foundation. We have to control the water around the home. Most water issues can be solved by using a perforated drain tile around the outside walls of the crawlspace or outside the home.
To begin this process, we use a four-inch corrugated and perforated drain tile with an accompanying sleeve. A sump basin of no less than two and a half feet is then installed. All of our pumps come with an owner’s manual of operation and info on a five-year manufacturer’s warranty. Zimmer and Coleman are two of our most popular brands of sump pumps. The installed drain tile will guide the water to a point that we choose. This is where the sump pump will be placed. From here, the water will be pumped out and away from your home.
DID YOU KNOW?
According to a study by the Mayo Clinic, nearly all chronic sinus infections are a result of mold. Since up to 40% of the air we breathe in the home can come from the crawlspace, mold in the crawlspace means mold in the home. The EPA recommends keeping humidity levels in the crawlspace to 40%–50% to reduce the likelihood of mold formation.
