This Decatur, Illinois crawl space was suffering from mold and water seepage. Woods Basement Systems replaced the existing clogged sump pumps with the SmartPipe drainage system and sealed the crawlspace with a vapor barrier called CleanSpace.
In the photo you can see a shadow at the top of the wood studs on the foundation wall: this is how far in the finished drywall needed to be because of the bowing in effect. The reason we were called out to this Decatur, Illinois home was to stop the wall from moving in any further. The wall continued to push in damaging the finished drywall and the homeowner wanted to fix the problem once and for all. Otherwise, just resetting the finished wall in a couple of inches only would buy time until the force of the inward movement would damage the drywall a second time. We installed our Geo-Lock® wall anchoring system to permanently solve the problem.

Andrea H. of Decatur, IL was experiencing issues with standing water in her crawlspace due to open vents and improper space sealing. The standing water started causing mold and rotting wood in the crawlspace. Woods Basement Systems fixed the standing water by sealing the crawlspace with CleanSpace and vent covers along with a TwinPack sump pump to pump out water that may appear in the crawlspace. The customer also had a SaniDry installed to reduce the relative humidity and help control temperature in the crawlspace, which will decrease their energy bills.
A Decatur, IL resident was having problems with condensation in his basement. He tried using a small household dehumidifier to dry the air, but it could not properly get the job done. The condensation was beginning to form mold and was causing his entire home to smell.

The SaniDry XP dries the air and has a powerful blower that moves the dry air out and into the basement area. The resident was very pleased with the SaniDry XP and now enjoys a dry and mold-free basement.
Foundation settlement is a common issue among older homes and buildings. Some common indicators of foundation problems are cracks extending from doors and windows, windows coming out of their square, and stair-step cracking. It is important to get the problem solved rather than putting it off because the settlement will only get worse over time. As the foundation problem does get worse, it’s going to cost more to fix it.
