Originally, this crawl space was lined with plastic that either the homeowner laid down or another business did.  Dirt, pests, and water easily made it under and on to the surface of this liner.  CleanSpace replaced this and created a much cleaner space.  The white liner is thick enough to keep away pests, dirt, and water.  It lines the floor and the walls to make sure proper drainage is taking place.  CleanSpace leaves the crawl space dry and looking brand new.

Wet Basement Repair and Refinishing

Basement disrepair can present itself in a variety of ways. Even small things like a musty smell or extra moisture can be indicators of a deeper problem. Installing a professional grade sump pump as well as dehumidifiers is a good way to start fixing the problem and then prevent it from happening again. 

Symptoms of a waterproofing problem

  • Wet or damp basement floor
  • Leaking or damp basement walls
  • Pooling or standing water
  • Crystaline deposit on concrete surfaces
  • Musy odors
  • Condensation
  • Sump pump issues
  • Leaky basement windows

Additionally, if you are thinking about refinishing your basement, it's vital to make sure that it is properly waterproofed - it is always a pain to have to waterproof after it's refinished and costs more as well. Installing waterproof EverLast basement wall panels and waterproof flooring creates a seal that keeps out moisture, bugs and humidity. This keeps your basement both beautiful and dry, while also being energy-efficient.
