Clear Signs of Water Intrusion
Here we can see some very obvious signs of water intrusion through the block wall. There are stains all along this wall, which indicate that water had been coming through for quite awhile. The "stains" are actually minerals that are left over once that water has evaporated and is actually called efflorescence.
Damp Walls and Water Intrusion
This photo shows off another part of the crawlspace that had water coming through it for quite some time. Almost the entire wall was soaked when our Specialist was at the home. It is never good to see something like this, but when the wall is still wet when the Specialist gets a great idea of where the water is getting in.
Installed CleanSpace in Basement
Since this was a basement/crawlspace combination our system looks a little different than it normally would in a regular crawlspace. However this system was just as effective as one that is installed in a normal crawlspace. The CleanSpace keeps all of the moisture from getting into the area and makes the area look even better.
More of the Installed CleanSpace Liner
Here is a another view of the CleanSpace that our crew installed in this home. For only being a partial crawlspace, this was actually quite a large area. In this photo, the homeowner can be seen talking to one of our crew members, and shown exactly what they were doing and how the system was installed.
Crew Finishing Up CleanSpace Encapsulation
Here we can see the crew starting to put some finishing touches on our system. The majority of the CleanSpace has been installed, the main thing that the crew had to work on now was making sure that all of the seams were taped, making sure that the water or moisture would be able to get into the area.
Installed TripleSafe Liner with Remote WaterWatch Alarm
Here is a very important part of the system, the TripleSafe Liner with Remote WaterWatch Alarm. While this homeowner didn't have a huge water intrusion issue, they wanted something that would let them know if water was getting into the sump liner and filling it up. This is what the WaterWatch Alarm is for, it alerts the homeowner if the water level gets too high, but can be shut off from the control module that was installed upstairs.
