This home had leaks coming into their finished basement. The carpet and other bio materials were receiving moisture, which was leading to a musty smell. We repaired these waterproofing problems by installing a system of waterproof products. We installed WaterGuard, a patented interior drainage system, all along the walls of the basement. This drainage leads to a Super Sump sump pump in the basement. Now the customer can finish their basement with whatever type of material they wish.

A Williamsburg, Ohio homeowner, was experiencing problems with water and moisture in a crawl space and called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati for a solution to this problem. The homeowner met with a Certified Inspector, who recommended that a CleanSpace Encapsulation System and a SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System is installed to resolve the issues that the homeowner was having in the crawlspace.
The CleanSpace Liner is a 20-mil-thick plastic liner that is attached to the walls and floor of the crawl space. The CleanSapce Liner is a bright, white color and reflects natural light and provides a moisture-proof barrier.
The SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System is used to remove the water that seeps into the crawl space under the CleanSpace Liner. The SmartSump has a couple of "smart" features that you may want to know about. The SmartSump includes a WaterWatch Alarm that will sound when there is a pump or power failure. The WaterWatch Alarm is a great feature to have, especially in a crawl space. The homeowner may be aware when the power goes out, but if there would be a pump failure, the homeowner may not even realize that there is a problem until damage has occurred. The other "smart" feature is the Airtight Lid that has an Airtight Floor Drain. The Airtight Lid keeps moisture from evaporating back into the crawl space, keeps out insects and odors, and helps to quiet the pump. The Airtight Floor Drain will allow water that flows into the crawl space from a plumbing leak to drain down into the Airtight Floor Drain and will be pumped out of the crawl space.
These products working together will keep the crawl space dry and healthier for the homeowner. To keep the humidity low, a SaniDry Sedona could also be installed. The SaniDry Sedona is used to remove moisture, dust mite droppings, mold spores, and other particulates from the air. Keeping the humidity at an appropriate level discourages mold growth and musty odors in the crawl space. Why is this important? The crawl space is a part of the home, so whatever is in the crawl space will get into the living space. An important step to achieving a healthy home environment is to have a healthy crawl space.
