These Henderson, KY homeowners were at their wits end! They had constant basement flooding the last two weeks and prior to that, seasonal flooding that had ruined the walls and floor of the basement, laundry room, and garage.
After meeting with a dry basement expert from Healthy Spaces, the homeowners realized that they could have an interior drainage system installed in about 4 days that would leave their basement, laundry room, and garage dry all the time.
First, the Healthy Spaces installation team cut trenches into the perimeter of the three flooding areas, even around tricky corners and a curved fireplace. Next, they installed a Waterguard interior drainage system and hooked it up to a powerful Zoeller sump pump system.
In these two pictures, you can see where Steven Joseph and his installation team battled severe water intrusion to install the sump pump in the best location to remove all the water from the basement. In the After picture, you can see what a difference the right system can make! The basement is already dry and the system installation isn't quite finished yet!
Henderson, KY sits directly along the banks of the Ohio River, which increases the groundwater intrusion, relative humidity, and the chance for mold and fungus growth in crawlspaces. In these two pictures, you can clearly see the fungus growing on the wooden subfloor joists of a Henderson, KY crawlspace. The fungus is growing and slowly decomposing the wood. In time, this problem could compromise the structural integrity of the subfloor joist. Thankfully, the homeowners have elected to completely destroy the fungus and have it properly removed by the Healthy Spaces team. In the second photo, you can see that the fungus removal has been completed on the subfloor joist. Each joist will have to be individually scrubbed and cleaned on all sides in order to kill the fungus. That's only half the battle, though. In order to make sure that the fungus does not return to the crawlspace and repopulate the areas where it was previously, the homeowners will need to have the crawlspace encapsulated. The best crawlspace encapsulation system is CleanSpace, an engineered film that will completely isolate the crawlspace from the dirt beneath and the outside air, allowing the HVAC system for the home to be more efficient and the crawlspace to remain drier, thus reducing the risk for fungus and mold growth.
Any Henderson, KY basement experiencing flooding needs a reliable, powerful sump pump constructed of quality components. This is a SuperSump Sump Pump from Basement Systems. Our Healthy Spaces installation team is trained to install this remarkably compact, reliable Zoeller sump pump with our Waterguard Basement Waterproofing perimeter drain system. As you can see here, the pump is placed into a cut out in the basement slab, which is then filled with rock to allow the water to freely enter the perforated sump pump basket. The basket and entire shell are composed of rigid, durable plastic that will not degrade, warp or crack like other pumps. The tight-fitting lid ensures that outside debris stay out, but there is still a drain in the lid to handle those unexpected plumbing emergencies like a broken pipe. There is a WaterWatch alarm housed in the lid as well, which will alert the homeowners if the pump fails, becomes overwhelmed, or loses power in the midst of a storm and is being filled. Finally, you can see the rigid PVC style discharge line and dedicated outlet that make this sump pump system dependable--you don't have to worry about an overloaded circuit or a kinked discharge line. If your sump pump doesn't match these standards, it is time to have one of our Waterproofing Experts out to show you how Healthy Spaces can keep your basement dry all the time!

Mr. and Mrs. Smith noticed water coming in through their block foundation walls in their basement. There was also water seeping up from the seam where the wall meets the basement floor. Concerned that this problem would forever prevent them from finishing their basement, they contacted Healthy Spaces. The Healthy Spaces waterproofing design expert came out and evaluated the problem.
He and the homeowners decided that it would be best to install a Waterguard perimeter drain system, a TripleSafe Sump Pump system, and BrightWall to help control the leaking walls.
The BrightWall has directed wall moisture effectively into the Waterguard system, where the groundwater is directed out of the basement through the TripleSafe Sump Pump system.
The Smiths are extremely happy with the performance of the system and with the Healthy Spaces team and they plan to start finishing their basement right away!
Homeowners in Henderson, KY recently contacted Healthy Spaces to help get their flooded crawlspace under control. They met with Damon Cheatham and decided that after an extensive mold remediation, they wanted to encapsulate their crawlspace. Damon recommended installing a water removal system, dimple roll, a super sump, and a dehumidifier along with the Cleanspace crawlspace encapsulation system.
The Healthy Spaces installation crew was on site for 5 days and completed all necessary repairs. Mrs. B said "They were extremely diligent and professional. I was happy to know that they were well trained and had a high attention to customer service and cleanliness...The system has performed better than I expected and is quieter than I thought it would be. I'm very happy with the whole system".
