Getting Rid of that Moldy Smell in Buchanan, MI

Getting Rid of that Moldy Smell in Buchanan, MI

Getting Rid of that Moldy Smell in Buchanan, MI Getting Rid of that Moldy Smell in Buchanan, MI

We received a call from this Buchanan, MI homeowner who had grown tired of the moldy, musty smell in his cottage crawl space. The cottage was located next to the lake so, naturally, the first assumption was to blame humidity. After examining the crawl space, it was clear to the system design specialist that the insulation of the crawl space had taken in moisture and was definitely the cause of the unpleasant smell. To protect the crawl space from humidity and it’s moldy plus one, the crew installed a full encapsulation system.  The first step was laying down a drainage matting to keep standing water from puddling up on the crawl space floor. With the matting in place, the crew began the encapsulation and covered the rest of the crawl space with the vapor barrier CleanSpace. CleanSpace is a mold resistant liner designed to keep moisture from permeating into a crawl space. The white plastic - seen in the after photo - is ultra-durable and will even help keep the crawl space better insulated during the winter months when this cabin sees less use. This cottage can now say goodbye to wet and musty and hello to fresh and clean.

This basement wall had a crack that extended much of the length of the poured concrete. The crack had been leaking for some time and had been treated with a product to try to stop the water but the water just kept coming. That's when we got involved using a waterproofing solution called FlexiSpan. At the base of the wall where the crack is present, a small drywell is dug out, a few gallons in volume. Drainage stone is added to the well. Then we add a small wall flange along the base of the wall and cement over the well. On the wall, CleanSpace fabric covers the crack creating a barrier with directs any incoming water down the wall and into the drywell below the concrete floor so that the moisture can leech back into the soil without ever been seen or puddling on the floor. Even small wall leaks can be big problems. With FlexiSpan, they don't have to be.

Jo called our team because he had uneven and cracking concrete in his garage, sidewalk and driveway. We installed PolyLevel, a system designed to fix concrete slabs that have sunk by using a new product to lift the concrete slabs back to their original level. The new product used is a polyurethane foam that expands and has a high density in order to raise the concrete. The process is quite simple and is done by drilling small holes into the concrete and then inserting the foam into the holes. Also, the PolyLevel system is waterproof and long-lasting.

Job Stories From Buchanan, MI
Rim Joist Insulation on Shelter in Battle Creek

Mr. and Mrs. Nordman take pride in their home and every structure on their lot. Having an emergency shelter can come in handy but sharing it with mold and mice can become a major stressor. Our foreman Bruce noticed that with a damp and weakening crawl space, there's little that the structure could shelter from. Mrs. Nordman's biggest fear came true when discovering that the shelter crawl space was providing a foster home for dangerous organisms like mold spores.

The simple and effective remedy our team took to give the Nordmans peace of mind was a multistep process that strips the environment of moisture, reinforces the supports, and ensures no future build-up takes place.

After removing the infected insulation, a heavy-duty dehumidifier dries the air and robs potential spores of a food source. After, a system of insulation was added to the Rim Joists and was placed at strategic locations to prevent new sources of moisture. The final touch is a CleanSpace Lining that covers the surface area of the crawl space. Besides providing a sterile environment, the lining provides a clean look to your crawl space and the security every homeowner deserves.  


PolyLevel and FlexiSpan Installed in Buchanan, MI Home

Lynn E. contacted us because his back patio was starting to sink. The issue was causing water to leak into the basement through a crack in the poured concrete wall.

To deal with the crack in the wall, we installed the FlexiSpan wall system. This system used a drainage grate in the ground to accommodate intruding water and a specialized material that sealed the crack and was able to move with the wall as it shifted to prevent the crack from growing or spreading.

To raise the settled patio, we installed the PolyLevel system. Multiple holes were drilled into the concrete slab and were then injected with specialized polymers that expanded to permanently lift the slab back to its original position.

Bowing Buchanan, MI Wall Saved With PowerBraces and Joist Reinforcement

This Buchanan, MI home had a bowed wall that the homeowner attempted to fix in the past, but the problem still persisted. The wall had a stair-step crack, which is a common sign of wall failure in a home with block wall foundation. Our team of experts had a solution that would permanently stabilize the wall, prevent it from shifting any further, and could potentially move the wall back to its original position.

This effective solution is called the PowerBrace system, which uses steel I-beams to stabilize the bowing wall with minimal disruption to the home. The beams were installed directly against the bowing wall and were secured in flooring at the base of the wall and to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. We also reinforced the joists to alleviate some of the pressure on the wall brought on by the house and its belongings. The system can also be tightened over time to potentially help the wall shift back to its original position.

Broken basment foundation, sinking
Project Location: Buchanan, MI
I saw your TV add which included pressure spraying on cement to a crawl space wall. Buchanan is near Niles which I see listed. I have a 100 year old home that the entire outside is sprayed on concrete. There are areas where pieces are chipped out and several cracks showing. Plus the front porch is concrete which has cracks visible. Chipping out at the cracks and spraying concrete to fill the chipped out area flat with the rest of the exterior wall is one part. If you are interested please respond and I will send you a few pictures of my homes issues. Thank you, Jim
