Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Encapsulating a Dirty and Damp Crawlspace in Newton, IL
Moisture was entering a crawlspace in Newton, IL, creating a damp and musty environment. To solve this issue, the CleanSpace Encapsulation System was installed. This will separate the crawlspace from the earth and will reduce the humidity level. Any mold growth will also be eliminated, making the whole house healthier. Lastly, the white color will brighten the crawlspace and make it easier to see inside it. Next, the TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed. This system assures protection from common problems with an ordinary pump. It can handle a heavy flow of water, thanks to a secondary pump included inside that will help eliminate the water if the first pump is unable to keep up with the amount of water that is entering it. It also features a removable airtight lid which reduces noise, prevents objects from falling in, and keeps moisture, insects, and odor from coming out of the sump. This system also includes an UltraSump battery backup system which turns on if the power goes out and effectively pumps out the water. Lastly, a TimeMachine Data Logger was attached to the pump. This system takes the guesswork out of sump pump maintenance. It will record and report up to ten years of data report like battery status, power outages, relative humidity, and temperature history, and connects to a smartphone app via Bluetooth to make it easy to review a date range of usage history. This will make it easier to spot potential problems early to help avoid water damage. Thanks to these systems, this crawlspace will remain dry and restore peace of mind for years to come!
