This crawlspace had very serious water problems. The pictures show just how bad the water intrusion was. The water was pouring into the crawlspace during rainstorms and was pooling on top of the home's old crawlspace liner. While it still would not have been good for the water to soak into the ground, the water sitting on top of the liner almost guarantees that it will evaporate and soak into something above it; i.e. floor joists and insulation. Fortunately, our crew was able to come out there in a reasonable amount of time to install the CleanSpace and accompanying products before anything serious happened!
The "before" picture shows this pooling very well. One of the larger puddles can be seen in the middle of this picture, by the back wall. Not only is there large puddles of water throughout the crawlspace, but there is also a lot of condensation under this liner, which would not necessarily be a bad thing if the liner was sealed correctly, but because it is not, the moisture is still able to make its way out of the liner and up to the floor joists.
The "after" picture shows the same area, but with the CleanSpace (and other products) installed. There is no water visible and never will be with this liner installed. It is sealed up tight, and with the proper products, like the SuperSump sump pump that was installed, this homeowner will not have to worry about their crawlspace flooding again. Another way that the moisture and humidity levels are kept in check is by the SantaFe Edge II dehumidifier that was installed by our crew!
This home in Mars Hill had the full package service when it comes to All-Dry's waterproofing products: CleanSpace, a SumpPump, and dehumidifier. The homeowner was thrilled with the work quoting, "The team was polite, stayed on task, neat work and cleanup. Good work on removing insulation and plastic. They understood the scope of work and requirements to do best permanent repair to water in the crawl space." This SumpPump that was used is the SuperSump.
This design of Sump Pump is a reliable pump with a WaterWatch alarm system and patented SuperLiner. The SuperSump can capable of pumping 2,650 gallons an hour and can also pump up to ½ of solids. The WaterWatch Alarm that is connected to the pump is there to alert you if any water has reached the top of the pump. The SuperLiner has over 96 holes that allow water to flow into the pump from under the floor. Overall this pump is one of the best that someone can have in their basement or crawlspace to keep water out!
This homeowner was in the middle of a renovation of their basement, but not on their own accord. Unfortunately this homeowner's basement had flooded and wrecked most of the area. They were in the middle of the renovation when they called us to see what we would be able to do for them. They wanted to make sure that before they finished it up, that they made sure they were protected from another flooded basement.
This is only a small part of the entire system, and only shows one small corner of the entire basement. However, these pictures give a pretty good idea of what the basement looked like both before and after the work was finished. You can see a little of the water damage along the wall, which is never a good sign. Mold can very easily grow on wet drywall, which can cause many more problems.
But have no fear, because WaterGuard is here! The after photo shows part of the installed system. This will help to prevent any water from staying in the basement, by collecting it and immediately draining it to the SuperSump Pump, which then pumps the water away from the home. The homeowner was so happy to not have to worry about this ever happening to them again.
CleanSpace is such a great product and makes any crawlspace look brand new! This home in Black Mountain had some much-needed help to get it to a healthy and moisture-free crawlspace. This crawlspace was completely encapsulated to prevent moisture from coming in and mold growing.
The "before" picture shows a crawlspace in desperate need of repair. You can see in this picture that several things are out of place and don't provide for a healthy crawlspace. First off, You can see the hanging insulation. This is usually never a good sign, it usually means that enough moisture has gotten into the insulation and pulled it down, making it sag or fall. You can also see the exposed earth, with the old liner pulled back. A lot of moisture in crawlspaces actually come from and are caused by the ground.
The "after" photo shows the difference that CleanSpace can make in a crawlspace. Our crew came in this crawlspace and treated it like Extreme Makeover: Crawlspace Edition. After cleaning up the crawlspace by removing the remaining insulation and moving bricks/rocks, they began to install the CleanSpace Liner. As you can tell, the CleanSpace makes the crawlspace brighter and overall, more appealing. Not only does the crawlspace look better, but it is protected. This homeowner does not have to worry about moisture, water, mold, or anything having to do with his crawlspace ever again! Oh, and the cable guy will love working in a crawlspace like this!
The homeowner was dealing with some pretty major issues in their basement. In these two photos, you aren't actually able to see the water soaking into the carpet, if you look for the "Photo Album" with a similar title as this Before and After, you will be able to see the wet carpet. This area was in pretty rough shape and needed to be taken care of before it got any worse. If the homeowner would have left the problem alone, there could have very easily had issues with mold or mildew.
The "before" picture shows the affected area before our crew had installed the WaterGuard drain. While the area does not look that bad, it was in pretty rough shape. You can actually see the water stains on the floor along the right-hand wall.
The "after" photo shows us a whole new story, having the WaterGuard drain installed along the wall. The WaterGuard runs back towards the camera, where there is a small closet area that houses a sump pump for the water to be pumped out of the home. This WaterGuard will help keep water from staying on the basement floor. Instead, it collects all of the water that comes through and keeps it from even getting on the ground, let alone sit there.
