One way that water vapor can get into the crawlspace is through the door. This is actually pretty common, as many crawlspace doors have gaps around them, which allowing air to flow into the crawlspace where the water vapor will start to condense. Once the water condenses onto different areas in the crawlspace (particularly organic surfaces), mold can begin to grow, which can cause serious problems for the homeowner.
The "before" picture shows pretty much exactly what was just explained. This certainly was not the worst crawlspace entrance, but we have certainly seen better! As you can see, the top and right-hand side of the door have pretty large gaps, which leaves a lot of room for air to rush in. The EverLast door will be even more effective since this door is almost even with the ground, which means in a flood, water could pretty easily get into the crawlspace.
The "after" picture shows the installed EverLast Door. It may not be as pretty or "rustic" as the old door, but it is certainly more effective at keeping the air out! The EverLast door creates an airtight seal when "shut", which you do by turning the knobs at the upper corners. This was a huge part of this job because it helps to keep the dehumidifier from working as hard because it keeps out unnecessary moisture.
This customer wanted to encapsulate their crawlspace to keep any moisture from getting in, while also making it better looking and easier to work in.
The "before" photo shows a dark and dirty crawlspace, and even worse than that, it was exposed to the elements! The old liner they had did very little to keep water out.
The "after" photo shows what the same area looks like after we've installed our CleanSpace Liner! It is much brighter and easier to work in. But the best part about the CleanSpace Liner is that you don't have to worry about water and condensation building up under your home and causing even more problems!
This crawlspace had very serious water problems. The pictures show just how bad the water intrusion was. The water was pouring into the crawlspace during rainstorms and was pooling on top of the home's old crawlspace liner. While it still would not have been good for the water to soak into the ground, the water sitting on top of the liner almost guarantees that it will evaporate and soak into something above it; i.e. floor joists and insulation. Fortunately, our crew was able to come out there in a reasonable amount of time to install the CleanSpace and accompanying products before anything serious happened!
The "before" picture shows this pooling very well. One of the larger puddles can be seen in the middle of this picture, by the back wall. Not only is there large puddles of water throughout the crawlspace, but there is also a lot of condensation under this liner, which would not necessarily be a bad thing if the liner was sealed correctly, but because it is not, the moisture is still able to make its way out of the liner and up to the floor joists.
The "after" picture shows the same area, but with the CleanSpace (and other products) installed. There is no water visible and never will be with this liner installed. It is sealed up tight, and with the proper products, like the SuperSump sump pump that was installed, this homeowner will not have to worry about their crawlspace flooding again. Another way that the moisture and humidity levels are kept in check is by the SantaFe Edge II dehumidifier that was installed by our crew!
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.
To ensure professional installation and superior service we carefully created an international network of over 350 trusted basement contractors.
