Wet Basement Solutions for Maryland Homeowners

Wet basements are a common, stressful, and potentially very expensive problem for Maryland homeowners. Wet basements can lead to such issues as mold and mildew growth, rot, pests, wall and floor cracks, and even serious structural damage.

Fortunately, there are a number of effective and affordable wet basement solutions for Maryland homeowners. One of the most popular and inexpensive is an eco-friendly basement dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers work to remove humidity and moisture from the basement air. This can eliminate mold growth and also significantly reduce that common “musty” basement smell. A self-draining basement dehumidifier is preferred by most Maryland homeowners, as it automatically dispels collected water (i.e. homeowners do not have to empty a collection tray multiple times per week).

Continue reading to learn other popular wet basement solutions for your Maryland home.

Benefits of an Interior Perimeter Drainage System

More and more, homeowners throughout Maryland are choosing interior perimeter drainage systems to protect from a wet basement. Perimeter basement drainage systems not only cost half the price of the average exterior drainage system, they also take much less time to install and are far easier to clean and maintain. Plus, interior systems do not require the time, mess, and expense of outdoor excavation.

There are many types of interior perimeter drainage systems available for Maryland homeowners. You can choose a sub-floor drainage system, which is designed to drain wall moisture without becoming clogged with basement floor dirt and debris. For monolithic foundations, where the footing and floor are poured as a single piece, a specialized interior perimeter drainage system can remove water from the wall/floor joint and direct it to a sump pump. French drains are also becoming increasingly popular for Maryland wet basement protection.

Speak to an experienced and certified basement waterproofing contractor to determine which type of interior perimeter drainage system is right for your home, foundation, and budget.

Quick & Effective Sump Pump Installation

A sump pump is an extremely effective basement waterproofing solution for virtually any Maryland home. A basement sump pump and an interior perimeter drainage system go hand in hand: the interior perimeter drainage system collects excess water in your basement, and a sump pump expels the water outside and away from your home. This results in superior protection against flooded basements in Baltimore or any Maryland town.

Like other basement waterproofing solutions, some sump pumps are better than others. You’ll want to install a basement sump pump with an airtight lid to protect it from clogging with dirt and debris. You’ll also want to ensure that your sump pump discharge line will not freeze during cold weather. And finally, speak to your basement waterproofing contractor about installing a battery backup pump. That way, if a powerful storm causes your home to lose power, you’ll still be protected from a potential leaky or flooded MD basement.

Contact a Maryland Basement Waterproofing Contractor Today!

Whether you’re looking for sump pump installation in Bethesda, need protection against a flooded basement in Baltimore, or require basic basement waterproofing solutions for your Maryland home, a certified basement waterproofing contractor can offer a fast and affordable solution!

The donations made will go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association to further clinics, research, support and camp for those who suffer from muscular dystrophy.

Muscular Dystrophy is a disease that is caused by flaws in muscle protein genes and tends to be inherited genetically. There are many different types of muscular dystrophy due to the different areas of the body which are infected. Forms of muscular dystrophy differ based on severity, age of onset, muscles first and also most affected, the rate at which the symptoms progress and the way in which they are inherited.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a nonprofit health agency devoted to curing muscular dystrophy, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and other related diseases through funding global research. The MDA was established in 1950 by a group of adults diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, parents of children with muscular dystrophy and one physician-scientist studying the disease. The MDA supports more research on neuromuscular diseases than any other private sector organization in the world.

David’s goal is to raise $3000 for his “key to freedom.” The White Marsh Lock-Up is on September 21 at Bertucci’s in White Marsh.

Baltimore, Maryland - Crawl spaces and basements throughout Maryland are facing the effects of massive amounts of standing water, after this month's many power outages wreak havoc for local homeowners and lead experts to speak out about solutions.

Mr. Basement, the local leading authority in basement and crawl space repair, empathizes with homeowners enduring the recent effects of power outages and standing water. These experts say the water can lead to mold, foundation, and furniture problems.

However, Mr. Basement offers a reliable choice of battery backup sump pumps for homeowners with standing water in their basement or crawlspace.

A top-quality battery back up sump pump system should be able to pump out 3-5 times more water on a single charge than that of an alternate power source. It is important to find a sump pump that is dependable even when the power is out, because the battery activates and continues to remove all the water - where other sumps will shut off and leave the mess.

Mr. Basement is committed to practicing the best waterproofing methods, through the use of only the finest products.

When it rains it pours in Baltimore! Are you loosing sleep with the recent heavy rains, afraid you might wake up to a flooded or wet basement?

Here's some handy tips from Mr. Basement, Baltimore's authority on basement and crawl space environments for a dry, worry free basement!

1- Correct drainage
Ensure roof water disperses properly.
Run discharge lines to storm sewer (code in many areas)
No negative grades (aka the ground shouldn't slope towards your home!)

2 - Seal any openings that may allow water intrusion
Window wells should be enclosed and free of debris like leaves, trash and sticks
Door 'trench' floor drains should flow freely.

3 - Mind the sump pump
Your sump pump should have the correct pumping capacity for your home.
It should be checked by our service department once per year - we service all brands of waterproofing pumps.
The sump pit should have a secure cover to keep out kids, their toys and pets.

4 - Install a dependable battery back-up for the sump pump.
Keep in mind that ll brands are NOT equal.Our UltraSumps have a state of the art charging system and high pumping capacity.

5 - Don't waste money on consumer grade dehumidifiers
Energy grade dehumidifiers are not the most cost-effective choice for your basement.
Their energy efficiency is sub-standard, and running one to dry a basement can become very expensive.
Instead, consider the Basement Doctor's Santa Fe professional grade dehumidifier and air filtration miracle machine.
It removes 4 times more water than consumer grade dehumidifiers for a fraction of the cost.
It filters your home's air and drains automatically.
It's like a dehumidifier on steroids!

Amazing Basement Waterproofing Testimonial Parkville, MD

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Dear Sirs:

I am writing to you today to thank you for all the hard work that your company did to get my basement in order. It was a wet and nasty, unhealthy mess, that has been made better again by your company!

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Dear Sirs:

I am writing to you today to thank you for all the hard work that your company did to get my basement in order. It was a wet and nasty, unhealthy mess, that has been made better again by your company!

For years, I have watched Channel 13, and noticed that Mr. Basement was a sponsor of the Noon Pet Rescue segment. Strangely enough, when I finally realized that I was ready to waterproof my basement, I thought of Mr. Basement first.

Before I contacted anyone, I did research. I looked this business, along with two other companies, up on the internet. I checked their Better Business Bureau ratings, and saw that Mr. Basement held an A+ rating. I asked everyone that I knew of and trusted, and I heard no negative comments about Mr. Basement. I realize that working with basements can be a tricky business, so I wanted to look at any negative comments to see how service related issues were handled. I saw nothing to indicate that I would have a bad experience with Mr. Basement.

I wrote an email to the website explaining my circumstances, and asked if for help to get my basement clean and water-free. I am a single Mom, with limited income, and a basement that smelled and was filled with wet trash. I had been trying to remove the debris with my children, but it got to be overwhelming.

A very nice lady called me back and she assured me that my situation was not without a solution. She sent out George Hoody a few days later, to assess my needs. Mr. Hoody inspected my home, and explained my options. I asked a lot of questions, and he was kind enough to concisely answer each one. I felt very much more educated in general about basement waterproofing after his instruction. He was professional, caring and very knowledgeable.

He showed me pictures of all kinds of damage that a basement could endure. He told me that my walls had no cracks, no bowing, no staining, and no deterioration. That was a good thing to know. He explained to me exactly what my problem was, and how it would be solved. I was clear what was going to happen when the workers came, and what each step would consist of. There was no uneasy feeling. I felt sure that they would take care of my situation.

Mr. Hoody outlined several payment options, and allowed me to pick what features that I wanted to include in my job. I needed a great deal of debris cleared from my basement. I would need a dumpster and several strong men to remove everything from wet boxes, to old desk, and even a ford mustang car engine!

I chose to include trenching with the Water Guard Basement Waterproofing System; the UltraSump pump with a battery backup; and the Sani-Dry High Performance Dehumidification and Air Filtration System. A Trench Drain would also be installed at the base of my door. Spray Foam Insulation would be applied to all areas in which air could flow in or out of the basement. There was also work that would need to be done outside my home to get the water away from the house. There were new pipes to be installed with a new LawnScape Outlet, and the Ice Guard Sump Pump Discharge Line System.

Once I made my decisions, Mr. Hoody drew up the work order and plans. He even explained what was going to take place for my Grandmother to understand. He called from my house to schedule the job within a few days of that visit. The day before the job was to start, a dumpster was delivered to my home, and the site supervisor came to my house to do a pre-inspection. They wanted to make sure they had everything they needed to do start the job the next morning.

The project took only two days. That fact alone was truly amazing to me. A team of very efficient and courteous men came to my house and did the very unpleasant work with kindness and understanding. At regular intervals, the crew chief, Justin, made me aware of their status. I have pets and children, and there was minimal disruption to my everyday activities.

I felt that the workers far exceeded my expectations. The basement is completely empty of debris and dry only a few days after beginning the job. From initial contact via the website, to complete satisfaction, was only a few weeks. It felt good, in this uncomfortable situation, to be treated with respect. I am very impressed with the work ethic of your company, and more than grateful for your outstanding effort!

I would highly recommend Mr. Basement for any waterproofing needs.

Sincerely,
S. M. Hunt

Annapolis, MD - Basement contractor Ron Greenbaum pledges participation in this year's "Polar Bear Plunge" to support the Special Olympics.

This Saturday, Ron Greenbaum - "Mr. Basement" and "The Basement Doctor" - will stand in swim trunks along the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Despite weather predictions of snow showers and temperatures as low as 25 degrees Fahrenheit, he plans to take a plunge into the frigid, salty waters for a swim.

Along with Greenbaum will be a brave band of thousands of Marylanders of all ages, who gather along the shores of the bay for the 14th annual MSP "Polar Bear Plunge". Their goal is to raise money and show support for the 10,000 athletes of Special Olympics Maryland. Efforts in 2009 saw more than $2.5 million raised to support the team.

Also taking the plunge will be a long list of local Maryland celebrities, including Baltimore Ravens players, Channel 11 media personalities, and many others. Additionally, an estimated 25,000-30,000 people are expected to attend, drawn to the event to witness the plunge as well as to enjoy the live entertainment, food courts, booths, carnival amusements, sandcastle building, and "Kid's Zone" activities. The event is open to the public free of charge.

Ron Greenbaum plans to donate up to $5,000 to the cause through the up-and-coming charity venue: text messaging. Participants at the event and at home alike can help the cause by getting involved with the text messaging campaign hosted by WBAL-TV.

Greenbaum and "Mr. Basement" will donate $3 for each message received. Last year's text messaging campaign brought in more than 1,300 texts, and they are optimistic for an even greater showing for 2010.

Where Basement Leaks Come From in Greater Baltimore, MD

When your basement leaks and is flooded, you know. The space is soaked, and everything's a mess, right?

Here's the rub: Do you know where the waters coming from? If you don't know, you can't address the flooding, and it's going to happen again.

Where Basement Leaks Come From in Greater Baltimore, MD

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

When your basement leaks and is flooded, you know. The space is soaked, and everything's a mess, right?

Here's the rub: Do you know where the waters coming from? If you don't know, you can't address the flooding, and it's going to happen again.

Mr. Basement finds that most basement water comes from one of four following sources. If you're interested in a FREE basement waterproofing inspection and written quote, call or contact us online today! They proudly serve Greater Baltimore, Maryland and Washington DC and Northern Virginia including areas like Columbia, Silver Spring, Annapolis, Towson.

From the Basement Wall/Floor Joint

Where Basement Leaks Come From in Greater Baltimore, MD

The most common way that a basement experiences groundwater leaking is through the basement wall/floor joint, which is where the foundation walls and the basement floor meet. Water pressure can most easily force its way through at this point, where it leaks into the basement through the edges of the floor.

There will always be more water around your home than anywhere else. When your home was built, a large area was excavated so the foundation could be placed. After the foundation is built, any excess are is filled in with backfilled soil. This soil will always be looser- and much more absorbent of water- than any soil around it.

The best way to address this problem is with a perimeter French drain and a sump pump with a battery backup. This intercepts the water where it enters, directs it to the sump pump, and gets it out of the basement.

Leaky Basement Cracks & Pipe Penetration

pipe penetration has been leaking for a long time

Cracks in basement walls and floors are very common, and in some cases, these cracks leak. And when pipes, wires, and other objects extend through the walls, they can also allow water in through the gaps around their edges.

These cracks and penetrations can be most effectively solved by one of three methods:

The most common solution is to inject a polyurethane polymer into the gap, which can be applied to both wet and dry concrete and, once dried, can expand and contract with the walls. Then a foam strip is run along the leaking crack and into a drywell that'Â's created in the floor. The strip is tooled over with a finishing coating, and the drywell is covered in concrete, leading to an attractive solution.

With some pipe penetrations, the contractor may instead drill two holes to the cavity of the pipe penetration. Then water is injected into the crack, followed by a special chemical that reacts with the water, expanding and completely filling the leaky hole. This allows for a complete, waterproof seal.

With leaking basement floor cracks, a lateral line can be run from the crack to the drainage system, guiding any leaking water directly to your perimeter drain and sump pump.

Through the Basement Windows

Through the Basement Windows

Basement windows, as well as crawl space or basement vents, can also leak a significant amount of water into the basement. This happens most often when the window frames rot, rust, or corrode, and also when the window wells fill with water, snow, and debris.

Replacing the window wells with plastic, covered window wells should help keep water and debris away from the windows, and by blocking winter wind, they'll even make your home more energy efficient.

Replace old windows with vinyl, energy efficient windows, and your home will appreciate further energy benefits, with windows that will not corrode in the future. Steel, wood, and metal are inappropriate materials for basement window frames.

Find basement windows that use double-paned low-E glass. These windows will reflect heat and the summer and pull heat into the space in the winter, allowing for the brightest, most temperate basement.

Home Plumbing Leaks

Home Plumbing Leaks

Even when groundwater is not an issue, there's an awful lot of possible ways to have leaky plumbing. Between your sinks, tubs, toilets, showers, pipes, refrigerator lines, and other plumbing, your basement can be exposed to serious flooding. And when a washing machine or water heater fails, the results can be disastrous!

Protect your home from water heater flooding with the hot water heater ring, provided by Mr. Basement. This will hold back any flooding water, while a special alarm sounds off to let you know a flood has occurred. They also offer heavy duty washing machine washing machine hoses, which include a 25-year warranty against failure. That's much longer than most washing machines last!

Other plumbing issues can't all be stopped entirely- there's just too many sources to cover them all. And if there's a flood upstairs, the water will most often end up in the basement. So if you're planning on finishing the basement, be sure to use inorganic materials that will not be ruined by a flood. This way, an entire floor of your living space isn't ruined should there be an issue.

If you'd like to stop basement leaks, call or contact Mr. Basement today. They offer free basement waterproofing estimates, including written quotes and an 88-page basement waterproofing book, to homeowners in Maryland, Washington DC and Northern Virginia.

This has most recently been recognized by the Better Business Bureau, where the company has earned an "A+" rating for their business, with no unresolved issues reported.

This achievement is especially notable when the company's recent growth is taken into consideration. In recent years, the company has expanded from its basement waterproofing and crawl space repair services, now also offering basement remodeling services through Total Basement Finishing and foundation repair solutions through the Foundation Supportworks network.

Companies generally experience a few growing pains when branching into new services, but this has proven not to be the case with Mr. Basement. Ron Greenbaum, owner of "Mr. Basement" in Baltimore, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC as well as "The Basement Doctor" in Ohio, credits continuing training and their "WOW Service" process for laying the groundwork for their good standing. The company's high employee retention rate, high office morale, and experienced staff have also been cited as a foundation for their good reputation.

Dear Plungers,


The athletes of Special Olympics Maryland thank you very much for helping raise $3 million dollars. I had so much fun as a super plunger with my dad chief Holland and everyone who plunged all night. My favorite part was taking 3 sunrise plunges with Tom Schniedwind. We danced in the water and he dipped me. Everyone said I had stars in my eyes. The athletes love the 11,000 plungers for helping us train and compete in 22 sports. I have been in Special Olympics for 30 years and it is my life. I have lots of friends from swim team and biking. I learned to be independent and live in my own home for 10 years. My parents are proud of me. I am proud of me. Thank you for helping me and my friends be included, accepted and respected. See you next year.

Love,

Desiree Holland
