CAUSE OF BASEMENT LEAK
Leaking foundations have adverse effects as they cause damage to the basement walls-whether one is living in an old house or modern one. Do not wait if your basement is leaking and get that extra layer of protection from a skilled professional. The soil is much of loose in the form when the basement is excavated as compared to the surrounding untouched soil. It is a fact that the loose earth attracts water rapidly as compared to the unmoved virgin soil. Following to this when the foundation walls are poured and the ground is filled again then the soil which is around the new foundation tends to collect water and grasp moisture up. The water gathers and ultimately will enter into the foundation wall as they age and their condition worsens.
Below are some of the essential steps, one need to understand regarding the waterproofing of the foundation wall in the home.
It is impossible to have all the expectations fulfilled by just one application while repairing the damaged foundation wall. But that does not mean, one should use many layers as they can show a disastrous effect too. To exemplify, if it is not installed in an appropriate manner, it can lead to the condensation effect.
Greater Toronto Area is a region which has diverse types of foundation walls which includes block foundation, brick foundation, poured monolith foundation, and the foundation wall which includes stone. The treatments are less and the treatment can vary according to the problem. To accomplishing the main goal, one can keep the basement region dry, removing the musty smell, and balance the foundation wall.
Effective treatment options can vary and includes the ideal bonding, effective drying, and long-lasting effect. They are related to the fact that how long and how worse the foundation is or was.
A mould sandwich is a situation when you have two waterproof membranes – a waterproofing membrane and vapour barrier which does not allow the moisture to escape. The process makes your rock wool insulation to become saturated which will turn to mould.
HOW TO STOP THIS SITUATION
After you get help from a professional, it is the time when you start with the diverse ways to avoid this situation and it is very simple. After the interior waterproofing, one must spray foam during the refinishing of your basement.
Spray Foam is really useful as it becomes its own vapour barrier, removing that mould sandwich. One gets a continuous membrane instead of having two waterproof membranes. The foam shows immense benefits as it sticks to the waterproofing membrane and seals and insulates.
Interior Waterproofing has been introduced in Toronto many years ago and it is effectively and efficiently used to keep Toronto homes dry and prevent them from leaking.
