Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Water and Air Quality Control in Oakfield, WI

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2020 by Tom Wardlow

Challenge

The basement of this home in Oakfield, WI had water issues in their basement, which in turn was causing mold, mildew and musty smell.  These homeowners needed a solution to eliminate the water coming into the basement, along with something that would clean up the air and prevent further mold.  

Solution

To take care of the water getting into the basement, Sure-Dry Basement Systems installed their SuperSump® Premier Pump System. It is engineered to help keep the basement dry and healthy for extended periods of time, even in times of heavy water intrusion. The SuperSump® includes a powerful Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of your basement. 

To deal with the mold and mildew and eliminate the "basement smell", Sure-Dry installed an Aprilaire Dehumidifier. The Aprilaire removes odors, prevents mold and stops mildew growth. It provides durability being designed for a long life in damp basement conditions, and offers ultimate convenience by connecting to your existing water drain system, so there's no need to constantly empty water!
