Cellar tanking services to help protect homes in Boston Spa
The River Wharfe runs through the town of Boston Spa, resulting in many homes in the area being classed as at high risk of flooding. Boston Spa is a wonderful place to live, with a range of attractive housing, surrounded by beautiful Yorkshire countryside and within easy commuting distance of Leeds. With this in mind, we know that for residents of Boston Spa, it is important to have peace of mind that comes with knowing their homes are protected from the risk of flooding.
Here at Pure Basement Systems we work with home owners in Boston Spa and surrounding areas, providing robust, cost-effective cellar tanking and flood prevention systems, designed to safeguard property and possessions.
Why invest in a cellar tanking system?
When a cellar is flooded, it can take weeks (or longer) for the water to drain away, leaving behind significant damage. Fixtures and fittings such as plasterwork, woodwork and electrics will have to be replaced but only after sufficient time has been allowed for the area to dry out. This type of remedial work is disruptive and expensive, whilst having standing water in your home can lead to long-term problems such as rot and issues with pests such as dust mites.
It is obviously best to avoid flooding in the first place and the systems we install will provide your home with protection, ensuring it is dry and free from the problems associated with damp and unwanted water.
A range of cellar tanking systems are available, from cellar sump pumps, designed to work away in the background, removing excess water, through to waterproof membrane systems. The most suitable type of cellar tanking system for your home will depend on how you use the space. If you’d simply like to ensure your cellar is dry and protected from flooding, a sump pump system is likely to be the best solution but if you’d like to convert your cellar into a dry living space, a waterproof membrane will be required to ensure dry floor and wall surfaces.
To be effective, a cellar tanking system must be installed by a specialist cellar tanking contractor. Here at Pure Basement Systems our team of engineers are qualified to CSSW level, with many years of expertise in all aspects of cellar waterproofing. We will work closely with you to design and install a system to provide you with peace of mind and protection for your home, whilst providing you with reassurance that you and your property are in safe hands.
