WaterGuard Prevents Water Intrusion Issues in Asheville, NC

WaterGuard Prevents Water Intrusion Issues in Asheville, NC WaterGuard Prevents Water Intrusion Issues in Asheville, NC

Water intrusion issues are, quite possibly, one of the most annoying issues to have. Once water actually gets into a space, it’s takes forever for it to actually get out or it takes a great deal of work to actually remove it. If you mop it up yourself, you’ve spent over a few hours doing it. If you let it dry, that’s an entirely different story. Once it dries, you’re left with a mess. The floors are stained and every piece of furniture in the vicinity is damaged. No one wins during a flood.

The Asheville, North Carolina homeowner actually reached out to us because they consistently had water intrusion problems in their basement. Try as they might, they never could truly determine from which the problem came.  It was a mystery, and continued to be one until they reached out to us one day. We set up an appointment, and were able to have our Design Specialist on the property in no time at all. David Listovitch, the Specialist in question, took a look around and located the main source of the problem. The walls were leaking water. He concluded that the basement needed our WaterGuard to collect the water and drain it away.

The “after” photo showcases its installation. Our WaterGuard was installed along the perimeter of the basement and fitted snuggly to the walls. In this fashion, the piping system is able to capture the water and direct it away from the basement. Say good-bye to those nasty flood stains.

This crawlspace in Asheville, SC had major water issues. There had been an old pump that was placed in the basement that had long stopped working. To solve this problem our team installed a SuperSump system. 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 basement in Asheville, NC was taking on water. Our All-Dry of the Carolinas team installed at WaterGuard. A water guard is a system that intercepts the water at the perimeter of the basement and drains it unseen and safely into the SumpPump where it is then flushed from the basement. WaterGuard is different because it is designed to not sit in dirt like most draining systems do. There is a special wall flange that creates space between the floor and wall allowing wall seepage to drain through the WaterGuard while keeping it away from the dirt. Since this type of drainage is separated from dirt, the chances of it clogging are nearly impossible!

Job Stories From Buncombe County, NC
Wall Anchors Save Garage in Ashevile, NC

This customer in Asheville noticed there were some issues with his garage. You can see the bowing and cracks in the wall in the picture. Yikes! This was a problem that could have gotten much worse and could significantly decrease the value of his home.

Our crew installed 14 Wall Anchors to correct this problem. How do these anchors work? The system  consists of an interior wall plate, an exterior soil anchor and a connecting steel rod to stabilize foundation walls by counteracting pressure exerted against the wall.

The only alternative to fix this issue would have been to completely remove and rebuild the garage walls. What a hassle that would have been! If you notice cracks, bowing, or leaning walls, be sure to give All-Dry of the Carolinas a call for a free estimate!

Basement Drainage System in Asheville, NC

This job was not anything out of the ordinary for All-Dry of the Carolinas. This business had a problem with standing water due to a faulty drainage system. Water was entering the building, but had no way to get out, which was causing problems and could have gotten much worse had they not called sooner.

In order to remedy their problem, we opted to install CleanSpace wall and a WaterGuard drainage system. These two products together, are a great tool to keep water from staying in your home or business. Any water that does make its way into the basement will be directed to the WaterGuard (which is similar to a drainage pipe), from there the water is taken to a sump pump, where it is deposited outside the building.

The pictures show a few different things. In the first picture, you can see how the water had been flowing through the basement, but with nowhere to go, it sat there and dried up and soaked into concrete. The second photo shows what the WaterGuard looks like when installed. The third picture is the final product. Our crew mixes concrete and puts it down over the WaterGuard to make it as seamless as possible.

Wet Crawl Space Saved by Vapor Barrier in Asheville, NC

This Asheville home had some major problems in their crawlspace, mainly being caused by water under their home. This is never a good sign in a crawlspace, however, it is the water vapor that really causes damage in a crawlspace. In order to help this homeowner, our Specialist determined that a CleanSpace liner, along with a few other products would greatly help this customer.

While the CleanSpace liner is a great product, there are usually a few other products we like to install along with it, to make sure your crawlspace is not only properly protected, but also can be drained and the air stays dry enough to prevent mold growth. We did this with this project in particular using drainage matting, a SantaFe Dehumidifier, as well as a SuperSump Sump pump. The drainage matting goes under the CleanSpace Liner, and helps to move water along under the liner, to the sump pump. The SuperSump is a pump that collects any water that has drained to it under the liner. The last product we installed was our SantaFe Dehumidifier. This dehumidifier takes any moisture in the air and essentially sucks it out, and drains it to the sump pump.

We love to make our customer's lives easier. We truly believe that by installing these products in customer's homes, we are making their lives easier and less stressful. If this homeowner would have pushed this issue to the side, they could have had tens of thousands of dollars in structural repairs. There are so many benefits to having our products installed, whether you are having a lot of issues or none at all! CleanSpace can help solve humidity and mold problems under your home, or just save you some money on heating and cooling costs all year round! We hope that everyone in Asheville, NC will call us to help solve their basement, crawlspace, or foundation problems!

Foundation Repair on Bowing Walls in Asheville, NC

This Asheville homeowner needed some work done on their basement when they noticed their walls started to crack and bow. They decided that we could provide the best service and were very happy with our work!

Our Service Design Specialist initially wanted to install nine wall anchors in the basement in order to keep these walls from cracking and eventually collapsing. These wall anchors are essentially a pair of large metal plates with a threaded rod that holds them together. One plate is put onto the wall of the basement, while the other is placed in the ground several feet away from the home. The rod is then placed between the two and tightened. This tension helps to straighten the wall and prevent even further bowing.

While the wall anchors were definitely a necessity, our specialist also recommended one of our basement waterproofing products, WaterGuard. This product is installed around the perimeter of the basement and has drains throughout. These drains collect any water that makes its way into the basement and drains it to a sump pump, in this customer's case, a SuperSump. It is very important to have a drainage system in a basement, because water can get into a basement relatively easy, especially during heavy rains or floods.

Bowing Walls Foundation Repair with CarbonArmor Fabric in Candler, NC

This homeowner in Candler began to worry when she noticed cracks and bowing in her basement walls. You can see the cracks in the first picture, as well as bowing in the second picture. She knew something needed to be done and called All-Dry of the Carolinas before any more damage could be done to her home. Upon initial inspection, there were a few different options that could have been done in this home, but eventually, she settled on having CarbonArmor Fabric installed, 24 strips in total.

These CarbonArmor strips are extremely strong and while they don't really have the ability to pull a wall back in place, they can keep the walls from bowing any further. Carbon fiber is an extremely strong material, 10 times as strong as steel.  The reason CarbonArmor is such a great product and blows a lot of the other methods out of the water is because of the material. The carbon fiber is also very light and pliable. This makes it easier to lay the strips on the wall and get a good seal.

This homeowner never has to worry about continued damage to their basement walls. These strips will hold the wall back and keep it in position for years and years to come.

Crawlspace Encapsulation in Arden, NC

This crawlspace was in the condition that many of the homes we visit are in, damp and unfortunately moldy. Many times the homeowner is able to catch the problem before it gets too out of hand (usually meaning mold hasn't begun to grow yet), but this homeowner in Arden wasn't able to. Fortunately, we have seen much worse than what was in their crawlspace, and we have a great product that takes the mold right off, Mold-X.

In order to make this crawlspace and the home as a whole healthier, we had to do a lot of work and install several products. Our crew started off with the drain mat and the CleanSpace. The drain mat is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a soft "mat" that is laid on the ground below the CleanSpace. Its main purpose is to help move and drain the water, but it also serves as a cushion when crawling. The CleanSpace comes next and is rolled out over the drain mat. The liner is laid out flat and pretty tight against the ground and walls. This is for a few reasons, for one it helps the water to drain better, but having it tight against the floors and walls prevents it from being torn or pulled down easily.

The next two products help to keep the mold and/or moisture out of the crawlspace. First, the crew applies the Mold-X throughout the crawlspace on the floor joists. This coating first off, kills any mold that is on the floor joists, and second, it helps to prevent mold from coming back again. The other product that we installed was a dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers are meant to keep the relative humidity level of the crawlspace down below 55% because anything higher and mold has the chance to grow.

We are so glad that we were able to transform this homeowner's wet, moldy crawlspace into a clean, new healthy crawlspace. If you think you could benefit from our services, please give us a call or contact us online!

CleanSpace Installed in Asheville, NC Crawlspace Area

This homeowner called into the office after looking around on our website, and saw that the systems that we installed would be almost perfect for the problems that they were having. They used their crawlspace as more of a storage area, but they began to notice a strange smell, which worried them. After finding out that this could be mold, the homeowner began his research.

Our Systems Design Specialist went to check out this home, and he found that the relative humidity level was higher than it should have been, which means that mold could grow in the crawlspace. This is not something that the homeowner wanted, especially since they used this as a storage area. The proposed solution for this crawlspace was pretty significant, and included installing CleanSpace, drainage matting, a SmartSump, as well as a dehumidifier.

The installation crew started with the digging, which included a perimeter where the 3 inch drain tile would be installed, as well as a hole for the SmartSump to be put in. These products were both installed, and then the crew went on to install the drainage matting, which helps facilitate drainage to the sump pump. After that, they were finally able to get to the CleanSpace, which completely covered the crawlspace floor and walls. This crawlspace was then ready for the dehumidifier to be installed, which helps to keep the relative humidity level of the crawlspace down, which is very important to halt mold growth.

Previously Flooded in Barnardsville, NC Gets WaterGuard Drainage System Installed

This homeowner had some previous experience with their basement flooding, and was going through a restoration of the basement when they called us. They wanted to make sure that they had a solution to keep the water out before they redid the basement again. We were able to send out a Systems Design Specialist to the home to figure out what the best solution to this problem was.

This was a similar solution to other basements, but on a larger scale, because it included most of the perimeter of the basement, instead of just certain "problem" areas.  The solution that our Specialist came up with was mainly WaterGuard drain with a SuperSump to move the water out of the basement. While it probably doesn't seem like much, these two products work extremely well together to keep the water out.

As always, the crew had to start out by digging and removing the concrete from the basement. This was done around the perimeter of the basement, and then the sump pump needed an area that was dug out as well. The rest is pretty simple, the SuperSump Pump system is put in its hole, and the WaterGuard is then put in, and attached to each other. The final step is to seal it all up with concrete. The crew mixes up some concrete, then lays it over the WaterGuard, so that it looks like there is nothing there.

Water Intrusion in Alexander, NC Basement Leads to WaterGuard Drain Installation

Water intrusion in basements is something that we see and fix almost every week here at All-Dry of the Carolinas. While some basements are in worse shape than others, this is always a very important issue to be aware of and take care of when you find it. This particular home was dealing with water seeping through around the base of their basement walls bringing dirt/clay along with it.

This went on a little longer then it should have, but the homeowner was still able to catch the problem before it got too far out of hand. The water intrusion was very obvious, as you can see from the dirt/clay on the floor, which had been brought in from the water seeping through. The homeowner was concerned about the water because he believed that mold was beginning to grow, so he called us to come check out the area and figure out the best solution.

Fortunately, our Systems Design Specialist did not find any mold in the basement, but did tell the homeowner that there needed to be drainage. His proposal included WaterGuard drain, a SuperSump Pump System, and an upright dehumidifier. All of which work together perfectly in order to provide a water and moisture-free basement!

The WaterGuard is installed along the wall to catch any incoming water, and drains it to the lowest point in the basement, which is always where the sump pump is located. The SuperSump then pumps the water out and away from the home. Last, but not least, was the dehumidifier that we installed. This was a larger, upright dehumidifier which helps keep the moisture out of the air, so mold will not grow.

Small and Damp Crawlspace in Weaverville, NC Gets CleanSpace Encapsulation

This homeowner gave us a call when they started to notice a strange smell and mold beginning to grow on the floor joists in this crawlspace. These are both extremely common signs of an increased moisture level, and is something that should be taken care of sooner, rather than later. We sent out one of our Systems Design Specialists out to the home to figure out the best solution for this homeowner.

Fortunately our Systems Design Specialist was able to propose a solution that would solve the issues that this homeowner was having. It consisted of our CleanSpace liner, SilverGlo Insulation, an EverLast Door, and a dehumidifier to ensure that the humidity level of the crawlspace is low enough to prevent mold growth. The Specialist was able to provide this proposal to the homeowner at the end of their free estimate!

The homeowner decided to go ahead and have the system installed, so our crew went to work soon after! The crawlspace had been cleaned out before the crew arrived, so they were able to start the installation pretty quickly. They started by installing the CleanSpace and the SilverGlo around the walls. Once this was done they finished by laying CleanSpace on the floor and making sure that everything was secured and sealed properly. After this, the rest of the installation was a cakewalk, the crew had to properly install the EverLast door, which creates an airtight seal, and installed the dehumidifier.

If you're in the Weaverville, North Carolina area and are having any basement or crawlspace waterproofing issues, or foundation problems, please contact us today! You can either fill out a Free Estimate form or call us at 1-833-567-3972! We look forward to hearing from you!

Leaking Basement in Leicester, NC Gets WaterGuard Drain System Installed

This homeowner was getting a lot of water in their basement, and on a pretty consistent basis unfortunately. The amount of water was enough that in order to help alleviate the problem they constantly had towels to help soak up the water. While this did help to keep some of the water from just sitting on the ground and soaking into the concrete, it is most definitely not a long term solution. 

The homeowner called us in order for us to give them a long-term solution to this problem that they were facing. Our System Design Specialist went out to the home and assessed the entire area to see exactly where the water was coming from and what the best way to fix the problem would be. This entire inspection process takes usually an hour to an hour and a half because the Specialist is extremely detailed in their inspection, presentation, and recommendation to each homeowner. For this particular homeowner, the Specialist recommended WaterGuard Drain, a SuperSump pump system, as well as a LawnScape outlet and IceGuard.

The last step of the process is for the crew to come out and actually install the system. The crew must start by removing part of the concrete where the WaterGuard and sump pump must be installed. After this is taken care of, the crew installs the products and begins to mix concrete in order to cover up the WaterGuard and area around the SuperSump. The last thing that the crew does is to test the system to make sure it is working properly.

Mold Throughout Asheville, NC Crawlspace Leads to CleanSpace Encapsulation

Mold in the crawlspace of a home can be extremely unsettling for many homeowners because it can cause health problems especially for children and older adults. Mold is usually caused by too much moisture in the area, whether it be a crawlspace or basement. There are many different ways that water can get into crawlspaces but the most common are from the ground and also from water soaking through the walls of the crawlspace. 

This crawlspace was full of moisture and mold, which led the homeowners to inquire about a solution to this unfortunate problem. They weren't aware of the issue until they noticed a large puddle of standing water in one of the corners of the crawlspace. We had one of our System Design Specialists head out to the home to figure out what best would take care of the problems that this home was experiencing. Our Specialist figured out what the best option for the homeowner and suggested the homeowner go with a full CleanSpace encapsulation. 

The crew did an excellent job with the installation of this system. They started out by digging out an area for the TripleSafe Liner (with the alarm) to be installed in. This liner had an alarm in it that runs from the crawlspace up into the home so that if there happen to be any leaks, the homeowner can be notified. The crew also had to remove all of the insulation under the home because it was completely soaked in water and had mold growing on it. After this was done, the crew went on to seal up the crawlspace with our CleanSpace liner, which helps to separate the crawlspace from the earth. This is the most important part of the installation because the crew has to make sure it is properly sealed. Last but not least came the SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. While the CleanSpace does a great job of keeping moisture out of the crawlspace, the Sedona is there to make sure that any moisture that does make it into the crawlspace is quickly taken out of the air!

Cracking Walls in a Wet Asheville, NC Basement Leads to Installation of Both CarbonArmor Straps and WaterGuard Drain

Many people may not realize just how serious water intrusion, high humidity levels, and foundation issues can be. Homeowners often know of a problem for several months, sometimes even years before they have the area looked at. The biggest problem with this is that with the issues that we help take care of usually will get significantly worse with time. 

The owner's of this particular home didn't immediately notice anything wrong with their basement, but over time the problems became more and more noticeable. They looked around to see who could help them out and ended up calling All-Dry of the Carolinas to come to take a look at the home. Our System Design Specialist noticed two main issues in his inspection; water intrusion through the walls and some cracking in the wall. In order to solve these issues, our Specialist suggested having CarbonArmor Straps to address the wall cracking and a WaterGuard drainage system to take care of the water getting in through the walls. 

The homeowner thought these would both be great solutions to the problems that their basement had and wanted to get the work done as soon as possible. We were able to get a crew out to the home and begin the installation. The crew started first by installing the CarbonArmor straps on the wall. They help to stabilize and prevent the wall from bowing any further. After that was taken care of, the crew moved on to removing the concrete floor nearest to the wall to be able to install the WaterGuard drain. The crew mixed new concrete to cover up the WaterGuard and this homeowner no longer needed to worry about foundation or water intrusion issues in their basement!

Arden, NC Gets Full Encapsulation

This home had a huge influx of water creeping into the crawlspace. As pictured here, there were several spots in the crawlspace that had large, dirty puddles of water resting on the original plastic liner. Whoever originally did the job, either didn't seal it efficiently, or they didn't install the neccessary products to keep the water at bay.

But our installers put in CleanSpace, a 20mils thick plastic liner reinforced with polyester cords, and CleanSpace Wall in the entire crawlspace, and you can see the difference. Our company uses a variety of methods to seal the material, but all methods keep the water from leaking onto the CleanSpace surface.

There's nothing like a full encapsulation to transform a crawlspace.

Asheville, NC Basement Requires WaterGuard, SuperSump Plus and CarbonArmor

This home in Asheville, NC was experiencing major water issues in its basement. The homeowners, not sure of where it was coming from, decided to give the experts at All-Dry of the Carolinas a call.

Not only were the block walls letting in water, but the walls themselves were bowing, leaving strings of cracks all along the basement’s surfaces. Looking closely at these pictures, we can see the damage.

Pushed into the craters of the wall, we can see evidence of efflorescence. This is all you need to see to know that water has been coming into space through the walls. Now the cracks, while minute, contribute to a much larger issue. Eventually, these small cracks could compromise the entire home’s stability. To combat this issue, our Design Specialist prescribed a few products for the home’s basement.

To capture the water creeping through the walls, we installed WaterGuard, a piping system that is hidden beneath the cement of the basement floor, made level and is recovered with cement. The WaterGuard is then connected to a sump pump, our patented SuperSump Plus, and it deals with pumping the water out of the piping and away from the home. The discharge lines are also well protected with Iceguard, a fitting that goes outside the home and automatically ejects the water away from the exterior wall in the event that the pipe freezes.

To stop the cracking of the walls, we also installed Carbon Armor Fiber Strips. They are a material that is sealed to the walls to prevent further bowing. It’s less obtrusive than other methods and can be concealed with simple paint or drywall.

Altogether, the basement is in much better shape now.

Asheville, NC Crawlspace Receives CleanSpace and Aprilaire 1850 Dehumidifier

Gravel, regardless of the stone used, is no real barrier. People often think that when they have a dirt crawlspace, the best course of action is to cover the dirt with rock. And, honestly, it does make the place look better. But a crawlspace isn’t a dirt road. It’s a part of your home. Every bit of moisture the dirt allows to pass into the space fills the air and worsens the humidity. A high humidity level causes several things to happen to your home. The doors stick and swell. The carpets become damp and smelly. The floors buckle and you invite dust mites right into your home. Again, the gravel covering the dirt floor does nothing to stop this because it cannot prevent the water vapor from rising out of the dirt. It’s that simple.

Asheville, North Carolina homeowners experienced this predicament first-hand with their crawlspace. They’d gone with a dirt floor—which was the first mistake. Moreover, they also had open vents in the space. These vents not only allowed outside air to travel into the crawlspace, but they also allowed the moisture ridden, crawlspace air to travel throughout the home and causes they issues listed above.

The insulation did nothing either. It only became a victim of the moisture filled air. Something had to be done, the owners realized. Eventually, after a brief internet search, they found All-Dry of the Carolinas.

We were able to set them up with a free estimate and have our Design Specialist, David Listovitch, meet them at the home. He concluded that the crawlspace needed a few products to rid it of the moisture. Our crew installed our CleanSpace liner, an EverLast Door, an Aprilaire 1850 dehumidifier, wrapped the piers with the liner, and removed that moisture filled, useless insulation.

After our crew was finished, their crawlspace was unrecognizable, but, most importantly, it was moisture free.

Candler, NC Crawlspace Experiencing Water Intrusion Issues Must Have Encapsulation

Vapor barriers are not real barriers unless they can actually protect your home from the earth. Believe it or not, having your home exposed to earth can set it up for a plethora of issues. For example, water vapor can rise from the earth and disrupt the moisture level in the crawlspace and bring mold into the upstairs area. This is made worse by a deteriorating vapor barrier that was never quite capable of doing the job in the first place. That’s what we have here in this Candler, North Carolina crawlspace. This crawlspace still saw a large amount of water intrusion on a daily basis. Whether the water came from the walls or the earth, it never ceased to be a huge problem.

Calling in All-Dry of the Carolinas turned out to be just what the doctor ordered. Design Specialist, David Listovitch, reviewed every inch of the home and crawlspace and came away with the best solution. The crawlspace would need to be encapsulated. This would mean taking our patented CleanSpace liner and installing it all along the floor and wall. All interior vents in the crawlspace needed to be sealed and an Aprilaire 1850 dehumidifier installed. Among other things, this would complete the total encapsulation in the crawlspace and lead to a healthier environment for the home.

Fairview, NC Crawlspace Cured with CleanSpace and Encapsulation

Before dividing deep into any project, we like to collect information first. We do this by setting the owner up with one of our Design Specialists for a free estimate. The Specialist, of course, combs over the entire home—not just the problem areas. They do this to see if the water problems have gotten so great as to carry on into the rest of the home. This happens a lot.

For this particular Fairview, North Carolina home, we sent out Specialist David Listovitch to provide the quote. He allowed the owners some time to look over the proposal before discussing their next steps. It was decided that the space needed to have CleanSpace installed. This material would be placed and secured all over the dirt floor. While our CleanSpace is 20 mils thick, it must be completely sealed to prevent the water vapor escaping into the air and adding more to the humidity. All vents would be completely sealed during this process and a SuperSump Plus pump installed to capture water. Lastly, to rid the air of all humidity, a dehumidifier is installed. All of these pieces work together to waterproof the crawlspace and give peace of mind to the owners.

Asheville, NC crawlspace gets CleanSpace and SmartJacks

All-Dry of the Carolinas focus on a variety of different issues, from water to foundation work, our team can take care of it all! In this case in Asheville, NC our team had to do a combination of both waterproofing and foundation repair. Water had begun to seep into the crawlspace and the owners were unable to locate the source of the water. On top of the water issue, the house had a foundation issue which needed to be resolved. In the before pictures you can see were the ground is covered in dirt and an old liner. There is clear foundation damage on the retaining wall in the crawlspace along with an obvious bulge.  

                Our team at All-Dry took several steps to take care of this home. First, the crawlspace was cleared of dirt and the old liner. Silver Glo Insulation was added to the walls to help work as a vapor barrier. Smart Jacks were then installed to give the floor joist a support to keep the home’s floors from sagging. Wall anchors were buried deep into the ground and then connected to the retaining wall as a source of support. Drainage matting was then put down over the crawlspace followed by CleanSpace. A remote alarm was then added to their sump pump which would alter the homeowners of any water entering the space. Overall, All-Dry did a wonderful job at fixing this home’s issues.

SuperSump and Cleanspace installed in Asheville, NC crawlspace

As you can see this crawlspace is covered in dirt and mud. Water was coming in through the walls, into the crawlspace and puddling in the floor. To resolve this issue All-Dry of the Carolinas cleaned out the space and added a SuperSump to pump water out of the crawlspace. Clean space was then placed over the crawlspace as a moisterguard.

WaterGuard in Weaverville, NC basement

 This basement in Weaverville, NC was having water issues. Water would seep down the walls from ground level and puddle on the floors. These home owners did the right thing by calling All-Dry of the Carolinas. Our All-Dry crew was able to tackle this issue with three of our most used products: WaterGuard, CleanSpace, and the TripleSafe Pump.

 

WaterGuard was added around the perimeter of the basement. The WaterGuard system intercepts the water at the perimeter of the basement and drains it unseen and safely into the SuperSump Pump where it is then flushed from the basement. WaterGuard is different because it is designed to not sit in dirt like most draining systems do. There is a special wall flange that creates space between the floor and wall allowing wall seepage to drain through the WaterGuard while keeping it away from the dirt. Since this type of drainage is separated from dirt, the chances of it clogging are nearly impossible! The WaterGuard directs the water to the TripleSafe Pump where it is then flushed from the basement outside to the LawnScape outlet. All resulting in a dry basement!

Encapsulation in Swannanoa, NC crawl space

This home in Swannanoa, NC was experiencing the smell of mold throughout the house. When our design specialist went out to check it out, he discovered that the crawlspace was covered in mold due to high moisture. To fix this problem our team at All-Dry of the Carolinas installed CleanSpace, a TripleSafe Pump, and Aprilaire 1820 to reduce the mold and moisture levels.

WaterGuard installed in Asheville, NC Basement

This home in Asheville, NC was experiencing water getting into their basement. This was becoming a huge problem for the homeowners because the basement was being used as a storage space. The water would bubble up from the ground and come down the brick wall of the basement. Once the water started coming into the basement, moisture levels began to rise. This amount of moisture was getting in the air and starting to damage the items that they had in the basement.

            This started to become a big problem for the homeowners so they called us at All-Dry of the Carolinas and we sent out our design specialist, David Listovitch. David was able to give these homeowners some suggestions on how to waterproof this space. The homeowners decided to go with our company and have us install WaterGuard with a SuperSump pump to fix this problem.

            WaterGuard is the most effective and reliable way to solve wet basement problems permanently. This is a piping system that is made specifically for basement to resist cogging from the dirt under the floor. WaterGuard intercepts water at the perimeter of the basement and drains the water unseen into whichever sump pump is placed in the basement. WaterGuard is installed by jackhammering around the perimeter of the basement down to the footing and creating a trench for the WaterGuard to be placed in. The piping system has a 3/8 inch wall flange that is designed to be pushed against the wall to catch water that comes down the wall. Once the WaterGuard is in the trench it is covered with gravel to stabilize the drainage system and then covered with concrete to make it invisible. The WaterGuard is connected to the SuperSump pump at the lowest section of the basement; the SuperSump is also under the ground like the WaterGuard. The SuperSump Pump is one of the best pumps on the line and is able to pump up to 2,650 gallons of water an hour. It is also equipped with a Water Watch Alarm system that sounds off if water rises above the point of where the pump should turn on. The SuperSump pump then flushes out the water into the yard through the LawnScape outlet.

            Together with these products our All-Dry of the Carolinas team was able to make this basement dry again for the family. They could now use their basement as a storage space without fear of anything getting damaged.

Waterproofing in Asheville, NC

This home in Asheville, NC was getting water in their basement/garage. Water would come from under the stone foundation and down the walls and flood the basement. The homeowners had tried to fix the problem on their own by adding a sump pump, but their pump was unable to meet the demands of keeping the basement dry. They called us at All-Dry of the Carolina and we had our design specialist David Listovitch, go out to the home to give a free estimate.

            When David got there he saw how the water was getting into the space and recommended to the homeowners our permanent interior waterproofing products that we offer here at All-Dry of the Carolinas. David suggested to the homeowners that they have WaterGuard, a SuperSump, CleanSpace Wall, and a dehumidifier added to the basement to help stop the water.

CleanSpace in Arden, NC

Here at All-Dry of the Carolinas, we cannot speak enough about how great of a product CleanSpace is! It’s durable, reliable, and very convenient. Crawl spaces of all shapes and sizes are able to be fitted with CleanSpace to encapsulate the space. No matter what type of issues that you are having in the crawl space, if it involves moisture, us at All-Dry of the Carolinas are able to handle it.

            In most crawl space situations, moisture invades the air from the ground. Crawl spaces are usually victim of dampness and ground water due to hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure is when ground water is forced down by gravity until it is stopped by some type of force, which in these cases is a basement or crawl space wall. The water is then forced against this object until it forces its way through or around. When water begins coming into your home from underground, it is typically a result of this pressure.

            It is almost impossible to completely stop this amount of water intrusion, but there are ways to prepare for it so it doesn’t affect your home. This home in Arden, NC was experiencing ground moisture due to hydrostatic pressure. The homeowners called us at All-Dry of the Carolinas to help them with their problem so we send out our design specialist, David Listovitch, to give the space a look.

            David noticed large amount of moisture in the crawl space that was affecting the home. To stop this issue, David recommended CleanSpace to keep the moisture from getting into the air. This is where the magic of CleanSpace comes in handy. This crawl space was oddly shaped, yet CleanSpace was able to wrap around all the walls, floors, and piers.

            In the pictures you can see how this product is very convenient in waterproofing crawl spaces and preventing ground moisture from damaging the house. Along with CleanSpace, this crawl space was equipped with a SmartSump pump and dehumidifier to protect the home from high moisture levels.
