Interior and exterior drainage is what helps to get rid of the immediate water problem. If you are experiencing flooding, the drainage is what is going to direct the excess water to your sump pump system. While interior drainage is less expensive and evasive, the exterior drainage is going to take care of the problem before it even starts.
Sump pump systems are going to help you keep water out of your foundation in general. Sump pumps start to deteriorate with age, they become unreliable and start to create moisture. This can lead to health problems such as mold and mildew. By keeping your sump pump system up-to-date you will not have to worry about the contents of your home being ruined by water damage.
Probably the best way to keep a dry basement is by installing a vapor barrier into your basement or crawl space. Vapor barriers are strong sheets of fabric that resist moisture, they also are a strong material that will not tear and let in water. They will keep moisture out of your home, making it so you do not have to worry about mold and rot. It is a great addition to any waterproofed basement.
