The Characteristics of an Effective Basement Drainage System

One of the most important components of an effective basement waterproofing system is the drainage channel that encompasses the floor. Having a system that ensures proper water relocation will keep your basement dry and prevent the many adverse effects of moisture buildup.

Because the drainage system is essentially removing water from the soil nearby, it is crucial to prevent that soil and mud from getting into the drainage channel and causing clogs. Our patented and proven WaterGuard system does not allow soil in and as such won’t clog- meaning you won’t have to replace it in a few years due to it backing up.

The inconvenience of installing a solid drainage system is also a factor to measure. If you hire a reputable, experienced contractor you can minimize the inevitable intrusion and keep the cleanup to a minor issue.

Another thing to consider is a system that links the walls to the drainage channel. There needs to be something in place that will guide water that leaks in through foundation walls to the perimeter drain, which can then port it to the sump and afterwards be evacuated outside. We recommend the installation of the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier, which meshes well with the WaterGuard drainage system, providing lasting protection for your home.
