French Drain

French Drain Solution in Baltimore, Annapolis, and More in MD

How Does a French Drain Work?

French Drain Solution

A french drain is installed underneath the ground around the perimeter of the house. While footing drains are installed at the foot of the foundation, french drains are not installed that deep. A french drain reroutes groundwater and surface water away from the basement foundation. The installation process requires digging along the perimeter of the house which results in destroying the landscape, walkways, or flowerbeds that may be in the path.

Downsides of French Drain

French drains promise to drain groundwater however, they clog quite often with excess dirt and soil particles overtime. A clogged drain pipe gives rise to lots of other problems including cracks on the foundation wall and mold infestation. Moreover, french drains cannot capture all the water that seeps into the ground and is considered quite ineffective. Even without clogging, french drains need to be reinstalled after every 10 years of usage, or the whole system collapses and serves no purpose.

A Better Option: The GrateDrain™

Maryland Mold & Waterproofing’s specially designed GrateDrain™ interior drainage is a clog-free drainage system that keeps on serving you for a lifetime. The system is designed to capture all and any water that seeps into the basement and actively redirect them away from the house. Some storms cause power outages, but you do not have to worry about it. The interior drainage system also serves during power outages as it comes with a backup battery pump.

The installation is quick and takes only one day to be set up and starts working instantly. The system only requires a maintenance check-up once a year which is relatively cheap compared to expenses of freeing clogged french drains every now and then.
