Amanda had water coming in her basement and it is now standing water. She needed a solution to the standing water and wanted it fixed so it woulnd't happen again. We decided the WaterGuard was the best option for her and the leaks. The drain is installed under the floor and collects the water that seeps into the basement. The WaterGuard takes the water collected and drains it to the sump pump to be expelled out of the home.
A lot of water was entering Nick and Pam’s basement through their walls. So our team installed the CleanSpace Basement Finishing Wall System to prevent any more water intrusion. Using a poly sheet material to completely cover basement foundation walls this system acts as a vapor and moisture barrier. The material is waterproof, stain resistant and can be applied over many different types of surfaces. This system was perfect for Nick and Pam and put a stop to all water intrusion into her basement immediately.
Kurts crawl space floor gets wet so he wanted to encapsulate the area and keep water out. We first laid down Drainage Matting which has dimples in it to allow the flow of water underneath it. The water is directed to the sump pump to the where is can discharged out of the crawl space. Next we installed CleanSpace which is a thick, durable liner that prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through. It also deters critters such a mice and roaches. We also installed the SuperSump which is engineered to help keep the area dry and healthy for extended periods of time, even in times of heavy water intrusion. Lastly we installed the SaniDry Sedona. The SaniDry is a dehumidifier which circulates dry air throughout the space, aggressively drying out your basement or crawl space. The water collected will be drained to the sump pump to continue keeping the crawl space dry. The small space makes it the perfect solution to keeping a crawl space dry and healthy!
Carol has water coming into her basment from the windows and the floor. There is standing water now and the sump pump is on the other side of the basement from where the water is coming in. We installed the SuperSump Pump System to keep the water out of the basement. We paired it with the WaterGuard system which is a drain installed under the floor to collect water that seeps in. The water that is collected is drained to the sump pump to be discharged outside of the home.
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 installed Drainage Matting on the floor of the crawl space to allow water to flow and be directed to the sump pump to drain. 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.
Many homeowners are not satisfied with their crawl space area. Typically they’re damp, musty, filled with miscellaneous debris and lack proper ventilation ー all ingredients fueling a recipe for disaster.
However, at Ayers Basement Systems we take pride in mastering the art of crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing. In the case of Jennifer M.’s damp Potterville crawl space, the solution was simple: Clean Space Vapor Barrier System.
First, we sealed all of the doors and vents so that outside air and humidity was no longer able to sneak in. Next we installed a crawl space drain and sump pump system. When combined, the drain and sump pump eliminates and removes any flooding water. Lastly, the area is encapsulated with our Vapor Barrier liner, a thick, durable liner that traps all other moisture in the air and ground. Without moisture, your crawl space will become smell-free and fungi-free.
After following all of the steps above we were able to completely transform Jennifer’s debris-filled, moist crawl space into a dry, ideal one.
This homeowner has a crawl space under the addition but when it rains a lot, water seeps in. During the summer, the heat keeps the area fairly dry but it still has moisture in it. We were called because she wanted it to be sealed off to keep it dry. First, we put down drainage matting so that water in the crawl space could move and be directed to the sump pump. Second we installed the CleanSpace liner which is a thick durable liner similar to a pool liner. It prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through. By keeping your crawl space dry, your structure and insulation is protected from mold and rot.
Pat noticed a pungent smell coming from her crawl space. By glancing in, she could see that water had begun to collect and mold could be the culprit of the smell. It wasn't until Pat gave us a call that she noticed how severe the problem was. Luckily with our Clean Space liners and drainage matting we were able to leave her with a dry and clean crawl space.
