Your basement warranty does not cover incidental or consequential damages as a result of a leak or flood. This means the warranty does not cover carpeting, boxes, finished walls, furniture, equipment or any other important contents in your basement. This is why it is so important to pay attention to issues that may affect your waterproofing system or products in your basement, and to take action to prevent serious problems such as flooding before they start.


During this annual maintenance visit, your technician will inspect the beams to ensure they are at a constant 40lbs. of pressure. They will check both the interior and exterior of the foundation to make sure the drain and discharge lines are clear of debris.


For annual maintenance on your dehumidifier, your expert will inspect the unit. He will also clean and oil the unit if needed. The humidistat level will be checked to make sure it is accurate. We will then inspect the blower motor. We will then change the filter in your unit and leave a replacement filter for six month change out. The technician will also install a drain pan treatment to keep the discharge line clean.
