Installing a French drain can help prevent wet basement and mould issues. If you live in a low lying area or one that is prone to heavy rains and floods this might be the ideal solution for you.
A French drain is a simple and effective sloping trench dug in the ground, and filled in with gravel or rock. It typically contains hollow pipes running along the bottom of the trench to allow water that seeps through the gravel to drain away quickly. It can be covered over with turf after installation to make it less conspicuous.
The advantages of French drain installation:
If you consider that most often accumulation of ground and surface water are the main reasons for floods and leaks, then a French drain is a simple and cost-effective solution. When coupled with a sump pump you might avoid dealing with wet basement issues, no matter what the weather. All you need is a reliable waterproofing specialist to do the work for you.
