We are excited to share the news: The Philadelphia Inquirer Featured Basement Waterproofing Specialists in a Story!
We had the great fortune of helping out a young couple from Philadelphia who were expecting their first baby. They have a finished basement, but, it was getting wet, the sump pump was no longer doing it’s job during heavy rain storms, and the basement was showing signs of mold growth.
Mold can be unhealthy for adults and can be downright lethal to children, especially infants.
The Shermans were proactive and made sure to get that mold zapped before the little one arrived. Though the job had some structural difficulties, our crews were able to get it done; destroying the mold, drying the basement and keeping it dry.
Here is an excerpt from the Inquirer article:
The Shermans wanted to protect the value of their first house and maintain it structurally should they ever decide to sell. As it happened, Jon Sherman and the folks at Basement Waterproofing Specialists of Collegeville had met at a trade show, so the couple had someone to call immediately.
The budget for the work was $3,000, typical for a basement job of this size, said Damian Riccitelli, chief information officer for Basement Waterproofing Specialists.
The job had issues, said Jon Sherman. First, there is no access to their basement except through the house.
Second, Sherman said, “we had serious water stains on the drywall – and mold, which we were worried would hurt the baby.”
There was no structural damage to the house because of the mold, but a water heater in the basement had to be moved and then reinstalled after the waterproofing was done…The couple say they’re very happy with the outcome of their basement project.
“We’ve had several major rainstorms since, and the basement is dry,” Jon Sherman said. “We haven’t had a drop of water.”
Are you experiencing similar problems in your basement or crawl space? We are happy to help…
