Why Elevator Waterproofing is Crucial for Every Building

Elevator Waterproofing

elevator waterproofingIf you have an elevator in your building, it is crucially important that you have an elevator waterproofing system in place. Although it might not always seem like a necessity, dealing with water damage in an elevator system is dangerous and expensive for any building owner to deal with. By taking preventative measures and installing an elevator waterproofing system, you could potentially be saving yourself thousands of dollars in the long-term.

Here at Aquaguard Waterproofing, we use the FIT PIT system, a system that is known for its high quality mechanical and electrical components and excellent design. The FIT PIT system monitors water intrusion and constantly removes water from the elevator pit floor. The FIT PIT system and others like it provide many benefits.

Prevent Costly Water Damage

Water damage in the pit or throughout the elevator shaft is dangerous and extremely costly. Sometimes, water damage leads to the complete replacement of the entire elevator system. Preventing this costly water damage from the installation of your elevator is the right choice for any building.

Remove Water from the Pit Floor

As water inevitably enters the elevator shaft, it eventually collects and pools in the pit floor if there is not a system in place to remove it. Pools in the elevator pit can eventually lead to a complete system failure and potentially lead to injury. Elevator waterproofing solutions will remove water that collects on and beneath the pit floor and discharge it to another location.

Consistent Monitoring

Elevator waterproofing solutions will consistently monitor the shaft for new moisture and water. This ensures that moisture will not accumulate and protects the elevator shaft and system as a whole on an ongoing basis.

Inhibit Mold and Mildew

Because the system consistently monitors the water level within the pit, it helps to protect the elevator shaft against mold and mildew. Over time, mold and mildew can root portions of the elevator enclosure and lead to dangerous situations and thousands of dollars in damage.
