Do you know where the air you breathe in your Kansas home comes from? If not, here is a surprising answer: building professionals say the majority of the air you breathe in your home is not from windows and doors, but instread, from your crawl space. Whether you spend any time in your crawl space or not, what's in your crawl space air is in your house and affecting you - if there is high humidity downstairs , there is higher humidity upstairs. If there is mold in the crawl space, there are mold spores in your living space.
Adding vents to a crawl space seems to be a right solution, but it is not. The vents actually promote moisture because of the stack effect, a house's natural tendency to draw air in from the crawl space and upward into living spaces. Venting a crawl space also allows bugs and critters into the space.
To make your home healthier, cleaner and more energy efficient, your crawl space needs to be encapsulated - separated from the earth and sealed from outside air.
Basement Systems, the world leader in dry basement and crawl space technology, developed the CleanSpace System in response to the overwhelming problems associated with vented dirt crawl spaces. The installation of Basement Systems' CleanSpace Encapsulation System will

After raising the 10 x 13 section of driveway to match the garage floor, Evan realized that an adjoining section of concrete was now too low. This created a trip hazard near the front steps. After asking permission to correct it, he raised the corner of the section and eliminated the problem. We appreciate him for thinking about our safety.

I wanted to share with you a crew review. On Jan. 19 the crew led by Juan Matos arrived at my mother's home to repair a crumbling cement block and replace the basement floor that was torn out years ago. The crew arrived promptly and was very courteous. I did go down and talk to Juan and asked him a few questions about the job and he explained everything in detail and was very kind. When the job was completed the crew cleaned everything up nicely. I want to thank Thrasher Basement for making the repair process so fast and easy. Also I want to give special thanks to Juan and his crew for a great experience with quality workmanship.

"Thank you for your patience. You all were kind and easy to work with. The job was very well done." With more than 45 years of experience, Thrasher has a reputation for providing high-quality, long-lasting basement waterproofing solutions. We have access to more than 30 patented basement repair products designed to keep your basement clean, dry, and odor-free. Some may think that water intrusion issues are only experienced in residential properties. However, these are, in fact, problems that don't discriminate on what type of construction they burden and can have a detrimental effect on any structure. This brings us to The Burlingame Federated Church. This beautiful traditional brick church structure is nestled in Burlingame, KS. This structure was built in 1908, at which time it was the home of the Methodist Church. In 1948, the Burlingame Federated Church was formed by uniting the Baptist, Methodist and Presbyterians. Rev. Sam McCain Jr., the pastor of the Federated Church, said in a 1951 Kansas City Star article, "The idea of one church is scripturally sound. Without a united church, we can hardly hope to proclaim the gospel in a powerful way to a divided world". When you're talking about a structure that is this rich in history, inevitably, Thrasher knew we had to help out when The Burlingame Federate Church contacted us in 2015 in deep distress. The Church had been dealing with a hefty amount of water intrusion and were at a loss of what to do. Thrasher was able to arrange a time for one of our award-winning system design specialists to go out and meet with the members of The Burlingame Federate Church. As no two construction jobs require the same work scope, this is a necessary step to ensure that we can provide our customers with a top-notch experience. After a thorough inspection, the Thrasher System Design Specialist and the Church members could determine the best solution. A total of 265' of our non-clogging Water Guard interior drainage system and two of our Triple Safe Sump Pump Systems was the most fitting solution. This will ensure protection from the three most common causes of pump failure and guaranteed to keep their church basement dry year-round. In addition to the selected products used for The Burlingame Federate Church, Thrasher has multiple other solutions to customize every waterproofing need. Including the SaniDry™ Basement Dehumidifier and Air Filtration System can eliminate the leading cause of basement odors – high humidity and other indoor air allergens. Our approach controls the relative humidity of your basement to prevent mold from growing. Also, if you plan to finish your basement, we can restrict moisture and water vapors from entering the structure by adding a layer of basement sealer to protect from the mold at the same time with our CleanSpace® Basement Wall Vapor Barrier. Our highly trained specialists can install a complete basement waterproofing system with speed and accuracy. Besides, we never use subcontractors, and our crews are trained to minimize any mess and disruption. We will work hard to keep your home, business or Church clean, protect the floors and the walls, hang plastic to isolate the work area, and add ventilation fans to remove most of the dust so that you can have peace of mind while we complete your project – and protect your property for years to come. At Thrasher, we prioritize our customers' satisfaction above all else and want to make sure you are delighted with our basement repair services. That's why we offer a 25-year transferable warranty as well as a satisfaction guarantee, and efficiency guarantee, and a property protection guarantee. We understand that you may want to have another contractor bid on your project. Our goal is to have the best work done at a price that works for you, which is why we offer a price assurance guarantee when you choose to work with us. If another Better Business Bureau registered contractor provides you the same scope of work at a lesser price within 30 days, we'll match their proposal. If we can't match or beat another company's proposal for the same quality of work, we'll return any deposits you may have paid. Thrasher prides itself on being the right solution for any customer. We offer free basement repair inspections and custom repair solutions to solve your leaky basement problems permanently. To learn more about our price assurance guarantee and book your free no-obligation estimate, please call or book online. Thrasher believes we are only as strong as our customer's impression of us. This is why we depend on the feedback from the previous customer we've worked with. Below is the review from Burlingame Federal Church.
Comment: Crawl space is full of dirt and I do not know what. I just bought the house and would like it all cleaned out. The wood examined to see what the health is of the wood and see what the options would be for insulation and/or supports if needed. Thank you.

Comment: We are purchasing an older existing home, the inspection stated that the radon levels were too high and needed mitigations. I've been reading that crawl spaces in older homes are the primary source of radon entry into a home. I have seen many reccomendations that the crawl space of a home should be isolated using a heavy plastic barrier.
