If water in your basement is an issue, you likely need a sump pump.
The main function of a sump pump is to capture and discharge unwanted water from your basement to a more desirable. An effective sump pump can determine whether or not your home is protected from flooding, standing water, or any other source of intruding water that can enter your home.
Our TripleSafe sump pump system can protect your home with 3 effective pumps in one liner. The first pump is an effective pump that will do most of the work. The second pump is higher in the liner and automatically turns on if the first pump cannot keep up. The third pump is a battery-powered pump that makes sure the sump pump protects your home even if the power goes out.
Mold can thrive anywhere there is moisture and organic material (like wood) that it uses as a 'food' source. That makes a crawl space an ideal haven. Encapsulation and dehumidification are the keys to getting rid of mold problems and their accompanying smells. Our CleanSpace vapor barrier will protect your crawl space from moisture coming in through the walls and floor in your crawl space. Adding a Sedona High Performance Dehumidifier takes care of any remaining ambient moisture, which makes your crawl space inhospitable to mold.
