The finished basement of the building that housed Morgan County Extension of the University of Illinois in Jacksonville, IL flooded several inches. The flooding had left a massive mess in the meeting rooms that required hours of clean up and threatened the many items stored in the basement. The director of the extension, Aaron D., was worried about more damage so he called Woods Basement Systems. After thoroughly inspecting the basement, Design Specialist Chris T. determined that the best solution would be a waterproofing system.
Woods installed the WaterGuard drainage system under the cement floors along the perimeter of the basement. Unlike other exterior systems that become clogged by silt and plant roots, WaterGuard is an interior system that sits on top of the concrete footing to keep it clog-free as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors of the basement and drains it to the sump pump.
Woods installed two TripleSafe sump systems to accept the water from the WaterGuard and eject it out and away from the basement through its discharge lines. Each TripleSafe contains three pumps, including battery back up pumps, to ensure the basement stays dry, even in heavy downpours or power outages.
IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the building. The perforations on the IceGuards were designed to allow trapped water escape to the yard if the lines become frozen to prevent it from getting back into the basement.
Director Aaron D. has peace of mind that the building’s basement will stay dry and they can continue to use it for a meeting space and storage.

Brian S., small business owner in Jacksonville, Illinois, discovered mold and rot in his wet, musty crawlspace. The mold risked the integrity of the foundation as it at through the wet wood. System design specialist, Tim W. design a solution to support the building and keep the crawlspace dry.
Foreman James L. and his crew installed SmartJack to support the failing foundation. SmartJack lifts sagging floors to their original position and provides support over time. To keep the crawlspace dry, James installed CleanSpace. CleanSpace is a crawlspace encapsulation system. It is inorganic, so it does not support mold growth. CleanSpace is a vapor barrier, so it keeps water and moisture from entering the crawlspace.
In addition to CleanSpace, SaniDry was installed. SaniDry is an energy efficient dehumidifier. By keeping the humidity low, mold growth will stay low. Brian is pleased to know his foundation is supported and the crawlspace will stay dry.
