Basements with damp
Other frequent categories, are constituted by those problems of infiltration in structures for storage (e.g.: swimming pools) and in basement (e.g.: cellars).
For both cases, settlements, cracks and the utilize of inappropriate materials are the motive of infiltrations. The decay and the erosion created in the basements it’s no more so than the breaking up of the internal surfaces situated in the ground (cellars or basements) caused by the negative counterthrust of the water from the lying behind.
Against the localized or wide infiltrations, the first need is to counteract the decay caused by the permeation of the liquids, with waterproofing treatments able to act also in the opposite areas where the infiltration begins.
The counter-ground waterproofing treatments, are usually very complicated. In fact, they require variables and solutions in the application and also in the study of the construction site. For this reason, it’s suggested to act when the groundwater and rainfalls are particularly scanty. Furthermore, the use of opearative products together with the block of the uninterrupted drop, or suitable products for the passivation of the bending fixtures, like Hidra Flash and Hidra Grip – are particularly helpful during the first application phase. Finally, the thickening of the product is fundamental in the case of corners near the connections between walls and floor (reinforcement parabola).
