CleanSpace Restores Moldy Crawl Space in Baldwin, MI

The crawl space in this Baldwin, MI cottage was not a place you wanted to be. It was wet and growing mold, giving the area an overall damp feeling. Since crawl spaces are the lowermost points of a home, the "Stack Effect" explains that air flows in your home from bottom to top, meaning that the mold in the crawl space can be easily breathed in by those upstairs, causing a serious problem.

The best solution in this case was to install a liner to seal off the space. Not just any liner, however, a CleanSpace liner. CleanSpace is a durable liner that stops water vapor and allows for drainage to the sump pump. As an added benefit, this liner has an antimicrobial additive in the material, preventing mold growth. This liner was the perfect solution to transform this crawl space into a healthy, usable space.

In 2018 Jeff S. gave us a call when he noticed his cottage was emitting a musty smell. After searching for the culprit of the stench, Jeff discovered the source — his crawl space! We brought a team in to install a CleanSpace liner to help minimize the moisture while improving airflow and eliminating the smell. 

To combat the mold, we encapsulated the area with the Clean Space Vapor Barrier system. The system is made up of liners that prevent water and dirt from affecting the rest of the home by eliminating unwanted dampness. Mold, critters, and other pests require water to survive but our state-of-the-art liners seal away all moisture. Other benefits of the Vapor Barrier include increasing home value, providing warmth, sealing odors, and more!

Job Stories From Baldwin, MI
Waterproofing a Baldwin Library

This local Baldwin library had some water issues in half of the basement. They were looking to get some options for waterproofing and called us. We had just the solution to keep water out and the library dry! We started by installing the WaterGuard system which is a French drain that is installed under the floor but above the foundation so the drain does not clog. The system collects water that seeps through the basement walls and drains it to the sump pump. This system installs quickly and has a clean appearance as all the concrete is restored after installation so you don't have to worry about an unsightly drain in your basement. We also installed the SaniDry Sedona which is a basement dehumidifier that eliminates damp, musty odors by drying and filtering air. It also filters mold spores, dust mite droppings, dust and other particles in the basement. The best part is its small size so it takes up less space in your basement. Lastly we installed BrightWall Basement Wall Panels that are made out of plastic and creates a vapor barrier on your basement walls to block out water vapor and humidity. It can also direct water seepage into the WaterGuard drain system to keep the area dry. The best part is it gives your basement a bright and clean look!


WaterGuard Restores Wet Basement in Baldwin, MI

During heavy rainfall, several inches of water was entering this Baldwin, MI basement and the soon-to-be homeowners wanted the problem taken care of before they moved in.

To keep the basement dry, we installed the effective WaterGuard perimeter drainage system. Specialized pipes were installed underneath the flooring at the base of each wall, allowing water to easily enter the system and flow into the sump pump to be discarded from the home. The drainage pipes were installed on top of the footing to prevent them from clogging with dirt or other debris and placed slightly away from the wall to ensure intruding water had enough room to enter the system. The excavated flooring was replaced with concrete fill and the basement was ready for these new homeowners.

WaterGuard Combats Water Intrusion in Baldwin, MI Basement

This home was in need of a waterproofing system that would collect and discard intruding water. The water would enter the basement where the walls and floor meet and during heavy rain, several inches of water accumulated in the area.

The WaterGuard system was installed to make sure any intruding water was collected and discarded, rather than allowing it leak all over the floor. Specialized pipes were installed underneath the flooring up against the basement walls. Water entering the walls will drain down into the pipes and then exit into the home’s sump pump. We also installed inspection ports that give us access to the system if ever needed.
