Repeat after me: WaterGuard is the way to go. Did you say it? You should have because it’s true. Our WaterGuard is the piping system many competitors wish they had. WaterGuard intercepts water at the perimeter of the basement and drains it away unseen. It’s the perfect product for any basement that is having water intrusion issues. This Burnsville, NC basement was no different.
Our ‘before’ photo showcases a relatively normal basement. It looks fine at a glance. However, if we take a look closer, we begin to notice this ghostly white residue along the walls. You guessed it. That’s efflorescence. It’s what is left behind after water has come and gone. It’s not the prettiest thing in the world, but most homeowners have no idea how to deal with it.
That’s where All-Dry of the Carolinas comes into play.
We use a large variety of products here at All-Dry of the Carolinas. Even so, one of the last things we want do is hand a customer more than what they need. In this ‘after’ photo, you can see how we kept it simple. This basement called for WaterGuard and that’s what we delivered. We made a small incision along the perimeter, as we promised, inserted the WaterGuard system, and walked away. The job was done. We covered it with cement, and as soon as it dries, no one will notice the difference.
Looking into this crawlspace in Blacksburg, SC is enough to scare anyone. Not only is it dark and dirty, but the house is barely being held up. Cinderblocks and bricks is what this house was relying on to stay afloat. Installation hung from the ceiling and littered the floor, along with old piping that looks hazardous to be around. Water was seeping through the walls, causing damage and high moister levels. With all this going on, one might run screaming at the mess, but not our All-Dry of the Carolina’s Team! We were able to solve the problem with a combination of our waterproofing technology and foundation repair systems.
When it comes to your crawlspace, protecting it from water build up is very important. This crawlspace in Blacksburg, SC was experiencing water puddling around the perimeter causing high levels of moisture. When water puddles in the crawlspace is can cause damage to the foundation, ruin insulation, and mold, mildew, and decay.
In this specific case, the puddling water had caused mold to begin to grow around the crawlspace. To fix this issue our All-Dry of the Carolinas team used Mold-X Cleaner was cleaning the contaminated mold surfaces in the crawlspace. Mold-X’s purpose is to remove and reduce staining from mold, mildew, dirt, soil, and other organic debris from surface areas in the crawlspace. Our team then placed CleanSpace in the crawlspace, wrapping it around the walls, floor, and piers. CleanSpace is a 20 mil tick liner that is laid across the crawlspace floor and wrapped around walls and piers. This liner works as a barrier to keep moister that is produced from the ground out of the crawlspace. In addition to the CleanSpace a SuperSump was added to the crawlspace as a way of pushing excess water that enters from outside. The SuperSump works in coordination with the Aprilaire, a dehumidifier which is used to collect extra moister that is produced under your home. The moister collected from the dehumidifier is then drained into a condensate pump which then pumps the water from the crawlspace. With all of these products All-Dry of the Carolinas was able to completely waterproof this crawlspace!
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.
