There were many cracks in Clay’s basement walls and when it rained the water would leak into the basement. Mold even started to grow near the floor due to the water leakage. So our team installed FlexiSpan wall crack repair. FlexiSpan is a three part process that requires a flexible sealant, a flexible strip of foam and an impermeable membrane. These three items work so well because they are not affected by pressure or any more movement in the walls. So this system will provide a permanent fix to Clay's leaking walls, preventing the growth of more mold.
This Grandville homeowners had some water issues in their basement and wanted the problem to be fixed. We installed the WaterGuard System to give them peace of mind. This French drain is designed to be installed below the floor slab which keeps the drainage system out of the area where drains can clog. This system collects water that seeps through the basement walls and drains it into your sump pump. WaterGuard is installed with minimal invasion of the slab, and all concrete is restored after installation.
Debbie needed help repairing the foundation in her house because her porch was pulling away from the rest of her house. She called our team and we installed SmartJack, a system produced to halt your sagging floors. Floors above crawl spaces are vulnerable due to the moisture and soils in your crawl space. The SmartJack system is a permanent fix to these issues. It uses steel columns, threaded rods and a solid base to address any issues your crawl space may introduce to your floors. Installing this system usually takes less than a day and it provides immediate stabilization.
Springtime in Michigan has finally arrived and what better way to welcome the season change than with CleanSpace. This Pierson, Michigan crawlspace was in dire need of waterproofing, cleaning and dehumidifying when Tim decided to give us a call. He was concerned of mildew and mold growth after noticing how wet the area had become. Our System Design Specialist Alejandro and his team made it their mission to transform Tim’s crawl space into an odor-free and dry area and that’s exactly what they did!
We began by ridding the area of miscellaneous debris. When creating an odor-free space, making sure the area is clean is extremely important because it ensures that no moisture is able to linger behind. Next we placed our CleanSpace Drainage Matting. The matting rests directly on the crawl space floor to trap moisture and direct water to your drainage system. The matting is compatible with all of our crawl space products making it cost efficient and convenient.
Lastly, we cover the area with the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier Liner. The thick, durable, liner resembles that of a pool liner and is designed to trap anything from entering the crawl space floor; that includes, moisture, mold, and even pests! To ensure that Tim’s basement would remain dry for years to come, we installed our SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. This powerful machine has the ability to remove 95 pints of water per day and the best part – it’s self-draining so you never have to worry about the hassle of emptying it.
In less than a day’s time, Tim was able to check off the first item on his spring-cleaning list and was happily left with a dry, hassle-free crawl space. For more information on how you can achieve your dream basement and crawl space needs, contact us today!
Rick’s crawl space had water intrusion constantly. He was tired of worrying about his crawl space so we installed CleanSpace, a plastic sheet material used as a vapor barrier to restrict all moisture, outside air, and pests from entering your crawl space. Not only does this system create an energy-efficient crawl space, but it also gives your crawl space a clean finish. This material will be applied to your floors and walls to create a sleek look and an uninterrupted barrier.
Tim A. was afraid that mildew or mold had started growing in his wet dirt crawl space. His home was built in 1900 without a sump pump allowing water to accumulate and stand for long periods of time. We installed our waterproof CleanSpace crawl space liner to create a vapor barrier between the dirt and the home. We added drainage matting below the liner to capture intrusive water and transport it into the perimeter drain system. That water is then sent to their newly installed Triple Safe Sump Pump which discharges it far from the home. Tim went one step further and opted to have us install a SaniDry Sedona high performance dehumidifier that will keep this space dry and clean well into the future.
After buying their house, Lydia and her husband were advised to get work done in their crawl space. So they called our team and asked us to install a vapor barrier in their crawl space. Our team installed CleanSpace, a plastic sheet material used as a vapor barrier to restrict all moisture, outside air, and pests from entering your crawl space. Also, we installed IceGuard a sump pump discharge line system that even when frozen allows water to leave. Lastly, we installed the SaniDry XP Basement Dehumidifier which never needs to be emptied because the water drains automatically. Also, it is ten times more powerful than typical dehumidifiers.
