The customer had a very damp basement that required a waterproofing system using WaterGuard, as well as a CleanSpace Wall Encapsulation Membrane and a Sedona High Performance Dehumidifier. The customer’s objective was to reclaim the basement as usable storage space. Therefore, the scope of work was to provide a dry and functional basement, but there was no desire for aesthetic enhancement of the basement. Thus, the system was designed with this in mind so the budget matched the customer’s expectations.
After the project was completed the relative humidity (RH%) dropped from RH87% to RH49%. This made world of difference as the basement was no longer musty. The mold smell went away within 6-days and has henceforth not returned…nor will it. Musty or moldy basement smells are the result of the digestion of mold as it eats the wood and other organic material within a home. Mold needs moisture to live. It can get it from liquid water or, more commonly, out of the air from RH% above 70%. The WaterGuard and Sedona permanently dropped the levels to under RH55%. This customer was extremely satisfied.
