This customer contacted us because his crawlspace was giving off a strong mildew smell. This issue occurred because of the high water table in the area that was letting water and moisture into the space, causing it to become humid and damp.
We first installed dimpled drainage matting on the floor of the crawlspace that helped move intruding water easily across the floor to the sump pump. Next, we installed the plastic CleanSpace liner that sealed off the crawlspace from outside elements such as dirt, water, moisture and cold/hot air. This liner was extremely durable and prevented mold growth as well.
This crawl space was giving off an awful musty, mildew odor that was coming up into the house. Usually, a bad smell is a sign of a wet crawl space and a lot of times that means mold. We were able to install our CleanSpace system to fix this unpleasant smell. CleanSpace encapsulates the entire crawl space so no outside elements can get in. It also is great because the material is super sturdy so it call still be walked on and you can even store boxes on top. Not to mention it also makes your crawl space look bright and appealing.
This homeowner in Jackson, MI contacted us inquiring about services we could offer her to help her save money on her energy bills each month. After visiting the home, we identified several areas that could be improved, including the crawl space. Often times the floors above a crawl space will be cold if the crawl space isn’t properly insulated. We added TerraBlock insulation to the floors and SilverGlo to the walls to reflect heat back into the space, making it warmer. The last step was to add the CleanSpace liner to block water vapor and lower humidity in the space. By fixing up her crawl space, this homeowner is sure to save on her energy bills.

Homeowners in Bath, MI were experiencing water leaks in their crawl space. It's common for concrete block and cinder block walls to experience this, as they are porous, leaky, and known to have low water resistant properties.
To block any more water from entering the crawl space, we wrapped the area and piers in CleanSpace, a liner that acts as a tough barrier making it impossible for moisture to get through. CleanSpace is durable, mold resistant and completely seals off the home from the earth. Ta-da! Crawl space transformed.
This homeowner just noticed that the crawl space had some water damage on the walls and floor although they suspected it had been happening for a while. There was no standing water but the water had been coming in from the walls.

We then installed the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier which is a thick durable liner similar to a pool liner. This liner prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through it. By keeping your crawl space dry, you are protecting your structure and insulation from mold and rot.

These homeowners had a crack in their basement wall that was allowing water to seep in. The basement was partially finished and the house was the market, so the homeowners wanted to make sure the problem was taken care of properly.
To fix this problem, we installed the FlexiSpan sealant that repairs water leaks due to a cracked wall. We started this installation by excavating a section of the concrete floor in the basement at the base of the crack. We then placed a drainage grate in the hole that will collect and drain water coming into the home. Because basement walls tend to move, the sealant material is flexible and moves with the wall to ensure the crack is effectively sealed and does not crack again in the future if the wall shifts.

The homeowners had water coming into their basement and they were not sure how or where it was coming from. Something like this has never happened so they needed to get the water out right away.
Our professional team installed a sump pump for the owner, but knew they needed something else to ensure that the home would not get water in it anymore. For added protection the team installed the IceGuard anti freeze system. The IceGuard system attaches to the sump pump discharge line on the outside of the home. The system works by allowing the water to escape even if the pipe freezes or gets blocked for any reason. Even if the pipe outlet is buried under a foot of ice and snow, the water can escape, allowing your sump pump to keep your basement dry. When the discharge pipe thaws, the water will automatically run along its normal route, and no water will escape from the IceGuard.

One of our customers from Caledonia contacted us about his wet basement walls, he didn't know how to fix this issue so he gave us a call. We drove to his home and installed FlexiSpan technology. FlexiSpan is a crack sealer for concrete that is used often times on basement walls. First, a dry well is made in the floor below the crack on the wall. Then, the crack in the wall is ready for a FlexiSpan seal.
