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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Water intrusion is something that no one ever wants to see under their home, but unfortunately, many homeowners deal with this problem daily. Some may not see it as an important issue to handle, some may not know the solutions that exist to handle it, and some seek out companies to see what can be done about the issue. Fortunately, this homeowner was a part of the last group and was able to find out a company to help figure out how to keep the water and moisture out of this area. They were able to find our company through their search and had one of our System Design Specialists go out to the home to figure out what could be done! The system that our Specialist came up with included sealing the vents, CleanSpace, and a TripleSafe Liner with a WaterWatch Alarm. This photo album will show off the basement/crawlspace both before and after we did work in the home.
