    The Healthy Space crew is very interested in making sure your problem is completely taken care of. They were friendly and diligent with there work to make sure it was done correctly. All of the issues I had with my basement were solved when they finished. Jimmy spent a lot of time with me answering all of my questions. I learned a lot. My thanks to Jimmy and his crew for doing the work as if it was their house. In my case, this was money well spent. I highly recommend the Healthy Space folks to solve your basement and fresh air problems!

    Customer Testimonial

              They were very professional. They came in and looked at the situation and gave us a quote. That's the only people I called. The quote was a little more than what I wanted to pay, but I don't know because we didn't see what else was out there. At that time, we didn't take the services because it was a little more than we were expecting. They were prompt and I would give them a good rating.

              I just wanted to check in and give you all a basement update. Normally after a rainstorm like we had this morning, our basement would be a soggy mess. I'm happy to report that today our basement is completely dry! Thanks so much to Greg, Daniel, Jarod and Zack for their great work! We are looking forward to being able to use our basement for something other than a storage space.

              Gentlemen, It is such a pleasure to write this letter of commendation. Greg and his work crew did an outstanding job on my basement. Their hard work is so greatly appreciated. This team was exactly on time every morning and at the end of the day everything was left neat and tidy. It is an encouragement to me to see young men display integrity and pride in their work ethics. The entire crew was a testimony and an endorsement to the quality of work advertized by your company. Please know that I am aware that quality work standards start at the top. So, Jimmy and Damon, I guess you deserve a commendation too. I will definitely recommend your business to everyone. Thank you so much for delivery what you promise! Sincerely, Cathy K Rucks.

    Customer Testimonial

              I just wanted to take a second to say how pleased I have been with this whole experience. Having work done on your home can be stressful, but the quality of work done by the Healthy Spaces team was great. I not only got regular updates from Greg throughout the whole process explaining to me each aspect of what was going on and why the team was doing it, but they went above and beyond what I was expecting in quality of service. Greg, Chris, Dean, and Jason had to come up with different solutions both on their own and in coordination with Scott and Jimmy to make sure that when something out of the ordinary came up, it was fixed to my liking and done the way it should be. They take pride in their work and that can be rare in today's world. Healthy Spaces was recommended to me and I can see why. I couldn't be happier with this experience and would recommend you and your wonderful team of employees to anyone. Thanks for your expertise and service, Matt

    Customer Testimonial

              We would definitely hire Healthy Spaces again! We had a very wet basement in a 1950's home. The Healthy Spaces installation stopped all leaks. They concreted the floor level as we requested. One year later, we discovered a cracked drain line. They came immediately and repaired to our satisfaction. We've had no leaks with 2-3 inch rainfalls. We have since retiled the floor and can use basement again.

    Covering Vents in Your Shepherdsville, KY Crawlspace

    We have now determined that a vented crawlspace is a bad idea. Initially, it was assumed that the vents would act like car windows and one vent would allow in fresh outdoor air and the vent on the opposite wall would let the air out, but air pressure laws preclude this from happening. Air pressure in a home makes the vents perform more like a chimney. All vents suck in air and force it upward through the home. This is called the stack effect. The rising air brings with it all the mold, mildew, dust, and allergens and disburses it throughout the home before the air leaves out the highest level.

    This stack effect reduces the energy efficiency of the home and can drastically decrease the lifespan of your HVAC system, while increasing your heating and cooling bills.

    Cleanspace vent covers go over the old, inefficient vent covers and leaves a clean looking finish that will seal off the outside air completely.

    Muddy Crawlspace Transformed to a CleanSpace

    In these photos, you can easily see the CleanSpace difference! When the Healthy Spaces installation removed the layer of tar paper from the crawlspace, they discovered an extremely muddy crawlspace floor. In fact, the mud was very slippery and smelly.

    In order to isolate the crawlspace and the house from the muddy ground and wet outside air, Cleanspace was installed. CleanSpace is an engineered film designed against rips, tears, and water on top of the liner. it's guaranteed for 25 years!

    In the second picture, you can see the CleanSpace being installed in the crawlspace. Once the installation is complete, the crawlspace will actually be a conditioned space, which will increase energy efficiency--saving money on cooling and heating, and increasing indoor air quality.

    Celestine, IN Bulging Wall Stabilization

    This Celestine, IN home was have a problem with expansive soils pressing inward on the block foundation basement walls.  The pressure was causing bulging and cracking, which besides being ugly, was actually showing the foundation needed reinforcing in those areas.  

    The standard repair is usually to anchor the wall by driving rugged steel wall anchors from the interior of the basement through virgin soil out to an anchor in the yard.  The wall anchor system is not functional in every situation.  There was a challenge to repairing this wall because there wasn't adequate easement on the side of the house to allow for wall anchoring.  Due to the extremely tight quarters, anchoring was out.  Instead, Chris, the design specialist, suggested reinforcing and stabilizing the wall with beams called PowerBraces.  Powerbraces anchor above the wall and below it to keep the wall stable and the foundation movement from affecting safety.  The installation took just a couple days and was an immediate relief to the worried homeowners!

    Tell City, IN Crawlspace Vapor Barrier

    As you can see in these pictures, there's a huge difference between a crawlspace with an old black plastic vapor barrier and a CleanSpace installation!  One of the benefits of a CleanSpace system is that it is guarnteed against rips, tears, or water on top of the liner for 25 years.  The white surface of the Cleanspace reflects light instead of absorbing it (like that old black plastic), making a brighter crawlspace experience!

    West Louisville, KY Basement Waterproofing

    A wet basement is never fun. Not only does it create a lot of work for you to clean up, but it really limits what you can do with your below grade, basement space! It's impossible to finish the space if it floods, especially if you've finished it before and had massive damage. You don't want to store anything down there that you really care about because it might get wet. Suddenly, you lose out on anywhere from 1/3 to 1/2 of your overall square footage because your basement is wet.

    This homeowner decided that he would like to be able to use his basement as a storage area without concerns about flooding. No more wet basement for him! He opted to have Healthy Spaces come in and install an interior perimeter drain system, sometimes referred to as a french drain system) to prevent the basement from ever flooding again. In addition, he opted to have CleanSpace Wall System installed over all his basement walls to direct water into the Healthy Spaces Waterguard perimeter drainage system. The CleanSpace Wall system will keep water and water vapor from leaking in the walls and into the basement. He will drastically reduce his relative humidity, lowering his risk for mold growth, musty smells, and water damage. The Waterguard Perimeter drainage system will direct any water intrusion into a SuperSump sump pump to be removed from the basement. Phew! What a lifesaver!

    Carbon Armor Provides Reinforcement for Block Foundation Wall in Evansville

    What happens when your block foundation wall is starting to bow, buckle or bend?  The best way to reinforce your wall is to secure it with a Fiber-Reinforced Polymer like CarbonArmor.   It is 10 times stronger than steel and is specifically designed for basement walls.  First, an epoxy resin is applied to the prepared wall.  Next, the carbon fiber is applied to the resin and maximum contact and adhesion is ensured.  Once the CarbonArmor is applied to the wall, the wall is reinforced and the pressure from outside soils is being withheld by the straps, not transferred to your floor.

    Here you can see the real difference that Waterguard and Brightwall systems can make in your Evansville, IN basement.  In the first picture, you can see the mineral build up and staining present n the block concrete foundation walls and concrete slab of the basement.  This staining can also be a breeding ground for mold.  In the second picture, you can see that the Waterguard basement perimeter drainage system was installed and the Brightwall wall system attached to direct wall moisture into the Waterguard system.  The two components now direct all wall moisture and groundwater seepage into the drains, to the sump pump system to be pumped out of the basement and far away from the home.

    Your Henderson, KY Basement Sump Pump Installation

    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!
