In the basement construction, there will be a variety of questions, such as the health of the owners and their families, the protection of the basement investment, etc. One of the advantages of waterproofing professionals over other contractors is that they know how to keep the basement single harmony, which is good for health, and the harm of moisture and mold. This article will outline some of the key needs considerations when dealing with wet basements.
First of all, check the appearance to see whether there is frost or crack on the wall, and whether there is peeling, falling or mildew smell on the wall. These are very serious conditions. We can't underestimate them. We need to find out before the basement is completed. The following comments conclude all aspects of a monotonous, clean, healthy and energy-efficient basement.
Is there an existing waterproofing system? Is it still normal? Maybe there's silt in the system, isn't it? This is a common question about the comparison between the old porous drainage tile and clay tile system. It is reasonable to replace the existing system with a more modern system, which is conducive to ensuring that the basement is no longer permeable, which of course depends on the willingness of the owners.
Water cleaning pump water cleaning pump is the heart of waterproof system, assuming that the heart does not work, nothing else. High water level alarm system should be provided. If the water level in the sump is too high, it can play an early warning role. In addition, high quality water cleaning pump with battery backup circuit shall be provided.
Mould in basement plugging remember that water is the number one enemy of a completed basement. The presence of water can accelerate corrosion, mould can cause health-related problems, damage the wood structure and make the residence unable to be sold, which is often not included in the owner's insurance policy. The risk of mildew can be greatly reduced by proper monotonous methods (or adhering to basement monotony). Assuming that there is any doubt about any part of the basement, it is necessary to carry out appropriate mould tests. Send the sample to a gifted laboratory and you'll find it worth it. If remedial measures are to be taken, it is necessary to use qualified personnel, otherwise it may make the situation worse.
Looking at the bottom of the wall, any structural questions need to be repaired first. If not, these questions will become more troublesome. Once the wall is completed, these questions will be covered up, and the owners may not be able to know the existence of the doubts before the terrible conditions of the wall appear. When looking at the wall, see whether the base of the wall is arched and tortuous, and how tortuous it is, and whether the four corners of the wall are cracked. If the tortuosity is less than 5cm, it may be the best way to reinforce it with carbon fiber. The carbon fiber is very thin, and it is very simple to shade behind the wall. Assuming that the twists and turns of the largest part are greater than 5 cm, it is necessary to use conventional methods, such as I-beam reinforcement.
Dehumidification equipment advocates that energy-saving dehumidification equipment with microfiltration should be equipped in basement and narrow space. The equipment should have enough dehumidification ability to ensure that all basement air is in excellent condition.
As much as 20% ~ 40% of the indoor air coming from outside comes from the edge joint. The way to deal with this problem is to choose spray foam insulation material. Different from glass fiber thermal insulation material, this closed cell spray foam not only insulates heat but also insulates the air from the outside without air conditioning, and then reduces the load of HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system, thus saving expenses.
