Storm Cellar with flooding issues

August 16, 2016
I'm wanting to use this to help seal an old storm cellar that floods. It floods when there's 17 or 18 inches of rain as there has been in the past couple of years. It has some window issues that I am currently caulking and glazing and I see streaks down the walls where the water has come in through cracks. However, I have 3 or 4 places where there are large areas of black mold and I am currently using bleach and a mortar repair product to resolve that. (fingers crossed)

The question that I have for you is regarding an area where former owners of the house/cellar have used some type of thick paint product (probably Kilz waterproofer) to seal around the bottom of the walls near the floor. It too has some mildew. Do I paint over this? Or does it need some kind of primer? Or do I need to sand it off before applying this waterproofer.

I also saw a video online showing a waterproofer product (NOT A BEHR product--a competitor) and the walls of a basement molded under the paint. Do you find this to be an issue with Behr products at all, or could it be an issues since I currently have some mildew/mold in the cellar.

This is really becoming an ever growing expensive pain in the neck and I'm a beginner!! So any help you can give me would be appreciated

Hello Jaed,
Thanks for your questions and interest in Behr paints. None of our products are designed to seal surfaces for the purpose flood prevention.

Hello Jaed,
Thanks for your questions and interest in Behr paints. None of our products are designed to seal surfaces for the purpose flood prevention. Our Waterproofer paint here can seal hydrostatic pressure that builds up in walls but not direct flow of water from, say, a torrent of rain. For that reason alone, I'd have to recommend against using Behr for this project unless you were able to stop the flooding into the cellar. Also, our products are not mold/mildew inhibitors, and we actually recommend removing all sources of mold before application. Some of our paints can help prevent the growth of mold/mildew on the top of the surface, but not blocking it when it's underneath. I can suggest checking with Home Depot to see about another brand's coating that may be suited to your specific needs. Best wishes for your project!
