Rodney M. was tired of having snow shovel catch during the winter months and he noticed the shape of his concrete was starting to decline. Looking for a solution to prevent further damage from occurring he brought up his concerns during an annual maintenance call with Service Tech Brandon Rost, who was able to identify and provide a one-step solution for Rodney’s needs.
Brandon was able to pinpoint that the concrete drive and sidewalks were impacted by unsealed joints which were causing voids to form allowing water to enter. We were able to provide a permanent solution using NexusPro Joint Sealant, as well as a hydrophobic poly to stabilize the voids and prevent further movement. After we completed the work not only was Rodney happy with how fast the project came along but he also noticed an impact on visuals and aesthetics of his home!
Daniel was worried about his current sump pump, it had been running more often than it should have been, and wanted to make sure that it was running correctly. Service Technician Brandon Rost was able to recommend upgrading to a new model. The current sump pump was not performing at the highest capability due to age and Daniel decided to go with a new system. Once the new pump was installed Daniel was thrilled to have peace of mind knowing his basement would not flood.
Homeowner Tiffany T. started to notice mold and water issues in the basement. She had major concerns about how this would not only impact her home but the foundation as well. Having had Midwest come out to her home before, she decided to give us another call.
Service Technician Brandon Rost went out to Tiffany’s home. He was able to identify that mold was forming on the interior walls and a section of foundation wall was failing. To stabilize the failing foundation wall the crew installed a PowerBraces. We encapsulated and waterproofed the entire basement with CleanSpace and WaterGaurd. To help keep the humidity levels down we also installed a Sedona SaniDry Dehumidifier.
Homeowner Susan M. in Clive, IA was growing tired of the crawl space always being dirty and having bugs and mice in the space. The space has never been sealed off from the outside, so she was ready to make the space feel cleaner and brighter. Having used Midwest in the past, she didn’t hesitate to give us a call again.
Service Technician Brandon Roast went out to Susan’s home. He performed a thorough inspection of the crawl space. It was dark and the plastic lining had many holes in it. The crew encapsulated the space with CleanSpace and sealed up all the seams and tops to make sure the space was useable, and nothing could get in the crawl space again. Susan was very impressed with the quality of work and how well the crew worked together.
Martin F. was looking for a proactive approach to removing water from his basement and wanting to protect his home from future humidity and mold concerns. During an annual maintenance call, he was able to address his concerns.
Service Technician Brandon Roast found the sump pump was starting to fail in the basement. This left Martin at a higher risk of water damage and high humidity in the basement. Brandon was able to install a new sump pump and a Sanidry Sedona Dehumidifier to give Martin’s home a proactive solution to prevent water damage from occurring. Martin was happy that we were able to provide him with a same day solution.
Joyce just finished her basement in Adair, IA, and wanted to reduce the musty smell in her basement. She decided to give Midwest a call because she didn’t want the smell to affect the basement and ruin any work. During the inspection Service Technician, Brandon Rost recommended a new SaniDry Dehumidifier, the old one was low on freon and kept icing up. Once the new dehumidifier was installed the humidity level was able to be controlled.
