Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Waterproofing a Damp and Moldy Crawlspace in Champaign, IL
Water vapor was seeping into a crawlspace in Champaign, IL, creating a damp and moldy environment. To solve this issue, the CleanSpace Encapsulation System was first installed. This will completely isolate the crawlspace from the earth and reduce the humidity level. Any mold growth will also be eliminated, making the whole house healthier. The white color will also brighten the crawlspace and make it easier to see inside it.
Next, the TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed. This system assures protection from everyday problems with an ordinary pump. The TripleSafe 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. 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 SaniDry Sedona was installed. This efficient, high-capacity, dehumidification system also includes an air filtration system, all in a single unit. This system wrings the air dry, and its powerful blower moves the dry air in and around the crawlspace. It also automatically drains the water it catches into the TripleSafe, so there is no need to empty any bucket with this system. Thanks to these systems, this crawlspace will remain dry and restore peace of mind for years to come!
