A dirt crawl space gets a makeover at this Georgetown, DE home. CleanSpace Encapsulation separates the house from the earth so the water vapors and humidity level of the crawl space are controlled.
A crawl space in Bethel, Delaware had flooded after Hurricane Sandy. The crawl space had so much water it was about 3 feet high and surrounded the entire crawl space. Once DryZone was able to drain most of the water, we were able to take pictures and begin working on restoring the crawl space itself. After properly draining the water, we had placed the CleanSpace liner down and installed a dehumidifier to keep the crawl space nice and dry.

This homeowner's sidewalk was dangerous and hard to navigate. When dealing with settling of this nature, the typical response is to either rip up the concrete and replace or to use mud jacking to raise the slab. Ripping up the concrete and be costly and can still have settling down the road. As well it takes time for the concrete to cure and the pathway wouldn't be passable for some time. This is a huge inconvenience for the homeowner. Mud jacking is an old approach to leveling concrete that that is not always reliable and causing a huge mess and clean up. This involves drilling a hole into the concrete and pouring more concrete under the slab.
Rather then using these two approaches, the homeowners chose to use PolyLevel. This is an innovative way for DryZone to lift and level the concrete. Using a 2 part compound, we drill a small, dime sized holes in to the concrete, inject the PolyLevel compound and slowly raise the slab to the desired level. This takes a matter of minutes and is ready for traffic within 15 minutes of curing. Josh Richmond our PolyLevel foreman was able to successfully raise the slabs and create a safe walking area for the homeowners.
PolyLevel injection has so many uses. Similar would be the application used to raise 300 feet of busy Route 1 highway near Middletown and Dover.
This home in Dover had a slab that was in need of lift. When a slab settles especially around the house. It can cause major problems for the homeowner. Water can be directed towards the home and can cause foundation issues, crawl space or basement water seepage, and further settlement of the soil around the house. A innovative fix to this is using the PolyLevel Injection Foam. This way the homeowner didn’t have to rip up the slab and cause little disturbance or inconvenience to the homeowner.
When the homeowner of this porch in Ocean View bought their home they noticed the home had a very dangerous tripping hazard. The concrete slab making the front porch of the home dropped just over 1 inch. When the current homeowner talked with the pervious homeowner he said that the slab sank just about a year after it was constructed. In the three years since the current homeowner has had the property, he didn’t notice it sinking it anymore. However, he was still worried about it being a tripping hazard. DryZone’s recommendation is to inject PolyLevel foam under the slab to lift and raise. This will create a long term solution the homeowners problem without ripping up the slab and relaying the concrete. The results are amazing, and now no more worrying about guest tripping over the lip in the porch.

This homeowner was looking for a solution to their damp, dark basement. We suggested BrightWall because of the many benefits. Typically in homes we see basements that are painted. The thought is that this would keep the water from enter the space. But all it does is make the paint chip. Adding BrightWall to your basement will guarantee that it won’t come off like paints and sealants. It also directs the water into your WaterGuard or DryTrack System. This creates a clean, dry, space for your basement. Not to mention that the white color of the 3x8 plastic paneling will help to brighten the space, creating an inviting environment. The perfect solution for this homeowner.
The homeowners of this basement in Dagsboro expereinced water in their basement each time it rained. The had to wait until their small sump pump was able to pump out the nearly 3-4 inches of water. Leaving them with a musty basement smell and a huge headache.
Enough was enough, and they made the call to DryZone. After the inspection we suggested long term fixes to address and control the water. First, we needed to install WaterGuard. This will allow the water that is entering the basement to find its way to the sump pump without entering in to the basement and onto the floor.
The next step was to install a new SuperSump. A SuperSump includes a powerful Zoeller ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of the basement.
These solutions will allow for the basement to be dry, all of the time!

This crawl space was in rough shape. Standing water caused a humidity issue that was impacting the home in several ways. The most obvious effect of the water and high humidity was the drooping and degraded insulation which had to be removed. Even more disturbing was the growth of mold along the floor joists. This humidity and mold growth can contribute to illness in the people who live in the home.
The project took several days to complete as there were many steps involved: removal of insulation, Mold-X application and the installation of Clean Space and humidifier. Team DryZone came and removed the damaged insulation and floor debris. We also applied Mold-X to the floor joists which removed the stains from the previous mold growth and also helped prevent future mold growth. Clean Space with Drainage Matting and Clean Space Pier Wrap helped prevent underground water seepage. The final touch was a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier which will control humidity going forward. The project took several days to complete as there were many steps involved: removal of insulation, Mold-X application and the installation of Clean Space and humidifier. The result is a beautiful and safe crawl space and happy homeowners!

Originally, these homeowners wanted to enter a contest that DryZone was having giving away a free crawl space encapsulation. once the homeowners took a look at their crawl space and assessed the situation, they knew that they did not want to wait for the contest to conclude. They went ahead with the encapsulation and we are glad that they did. They had standing water and a dryer being vented into their crawl space. This led to humidity levels which were at 75%. Team DryZone came in and installed a SaniDry dehumidifier, CleanSpace liner and even installed a new dryer vent for these happy homeowners!
This home had a the type of crawl space "protection" that we see quite often. Thin plastic haphazardly placed throughout most of the space had begun to wear and was not protecting the home from ground water encroachment or the allergens that can often come into a home from the soil. These homeowners needed their home to be a safe and healthy environment for the years to come. This is when Team DryZone came to the rescue. We were able to impeccably install 20 mil Clean Space liner over the top of the drainage matting. This combination of materials will protect this home from the allergens within the soil. To further protect this home from humid conditions which can encourage microbial growth, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed. This homeowner can rest assured that their home is protected and healthy from the ground up with the help of Team DryZone.
These homeowners knew that their crawl space was bad. The odors and standing water were a clear message to them that they had a problem on their hands, they just didn't know what to do about it. One day, a conversation with their neighbor helped them see clearly what they should do. Their neighbor had been struggling with similar issues but called DryZone. The difference that DryZone had made in the neighbor's crawl space was exactly what these homeowners were looking for.
A call to DryZone was all it took to get a free crawl space inspection. This inspection revealed the full truth about the impact that this crawl space was having on their home.
The inspector from DryZone encountered VERY high humidity levels, both in the air and in the wood of the home. The exterior humidity on that day was 74% while the crawl space humidity was nearly 81%. But that isn't the worst of the story. Continuous high humidity in the air was impacting the wood joist which help up the home. The wood humidity read a shocking 29.1%! This is double what it should be! Thankfully, DryZone had the right solution at just the right time.
The HydroLink Drainage system in tandem with the TripleSafe Sump Pump will control that standing water for the homeowners for years to come - even during storms! The TripleSafe provides efficient water removal during normal water incursion, while the additional pump kicks in during heavy rainfall events. CleanSpace with Drainage Matting, along with blocking the vents and of course, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier will keep the air, and the wood, nice and dry.
These homeowners are enjoying a much improved living environment. High humidity can damage homes and health and we are glad that they had a good neighbor to show them the best solution was a call to DryZone.
