Steve S. was tired of having a musty smell in his basement. Water would be constantly coming into his crawl space, keeping it wet and allowing it to smell. Concerned with other problems this would cause, he decided to give Midwest a call.
The Midwest crew went out to the home and was able to come up with a solution to keep the crawl space dry. Drainage matting was installed on the floor and then the whole space was encapsulated with CleanSpace, a very thick linear to keep water from coming in through the walls and floor. A sump pump was put in to then water could be directed out of the crawl space and a dehumidifier was installed to keep the humidity levels low.

High humidity, standing water, and sagging floors. These are the symptoms a homeowner in Hudson, Iowa reported to Midwest Basement Systems when he sought to our help. The issues all stemmed from the crawl space.
The crawl space was made of clay so water could not properly drain on its own. This water led to the building humidity and excess moisture, which led to rotting support jacks underneath the floors, which eventually led to the sagging floors in the home.
The production team installed a sump pump to drain the standing water, then installed drain matting and CleanSpace barrier to reduce moisture buildup, and new rim joists to stabilize where the floors had started to sag. This extreme renovation not only helped to solve the homeowner's problems but also prevents the leaks from reoccurring in the future. This is how we help restore our customers' peace of mind!
