THERE IS A SOLUTION
Ugly, Wet Crawlspaces or Basements
A CLEANER CRAWLSPACE
Wet Crawl Space
Leaks in this area of your home are not something you want to deal with, but you have to. Leaving moisture here for long periods of time, neglected, can lead to a variety of serious problems. Moisture in your crawl space can cause wooden support beams and floor joists to rot, warp, and decay. These materials are partially responsible for holding up the weight of your entire home. So, needless to say, you want them to be in the best shape possible. Also, moisture here can lead to the growth of nasty mold and bacteria which could make your family really sick.
If you notice any of the following warning signs of a moisture problem, you need to get in touch with us ASAP to schedule a consultation with our team of waterproofing professionals:
- The first and second floor of the home smell musty and moldy
- First floor of the home is sagging in certain areas or feels unlevel
- Noticeable puddles seep out around the crawl space outside your home
- Infestation of bugs in your home – they could be coming up through this area
Chicago Dry Crawl Space
We make use of the Concrete Crawlspace Encapsulation System from AccuDry to fix and seal this area below your home. When you don’t have a sealed crawl space, you will have problems with moisture, excessive humidity, and unwanted critters – as mentioned above. During the concrete crawlspace and basement encapsulation process, we will install a concrete barrier that makes a durable and solid seal against moisture. It will permanently seal this area off from the outside environment so that this space stays safe, dry, and healthy. No moisture means no mold growth and no wood rot.
We also install a special drain system during each encapsulation job. This drain is installed beneath the concrete crawlspace barrier to ensure all runoff moisture is evacuated effectively.
Crawl Space Sump Pumps
We will likely also install a sump pump for extra protection against leaks. It will be installed quickly and will feature a pit or “basket.” Once water inside the pit reaches a certain level, it will be sent out and away from your home to a safe distance.
