When radon gas gets into your lungs it damages lung tissue and can lead to lung cancer over time. Our radon system protects your home from that gas and adds value to your home as well. The radon systems includes a mounting plate, junction box, and protective cover which hold the radon fan and electrical wiring outside of the home effectively riding your home of this harmful gas.
Terry wanted his space to be cleared of debris and he wanted the space to be insulated. The MidAmerica Basement Systems team did all the above and more!
The crawl space before is cold, dark, uncomfortable, and layered with debris. The team cleaned the space by removing all of the debris and then they insulated the walls with SilverGlo. SilverGlo is a foil backed foam insulation that is infused with graphite. The SilverGlo is specially designed to keep heat from escaping the space, and outside air from entering making the space warm and saving the homeowner a bundle on utility bills.
We then installed drainage matting. The drainage matting has dimples allowing rising ground water to flow underneath the CleanSpace liner. The space is then fitted with CleanSpace liner. CleanSpace finishes the sealing process with a thick, durable, flexible plastic that has an antimicrobial additive making it mold resistant. All of the materials used are inorganic meaning that it is least likely to deteriorate and/or become a yummy meal for mold.
The homeowner now has a space that is clean, healthy, and comfortable while saving him money and headaches!

Homeowner, David was not too thrilled when he had water leaking into his basement, on top of that, his basement wall started to lean in. He knew that this was a larger issue at hand and he needed expert help. He contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems. Design Specialist, Justin was able to come out to David's home to do an inspection and give him the best recommendation possible for his basement. He recommended that David had his basement fully waterproofed and have a Powerbrace installed to stabilize the bowing wall.
The Powerbrace system is a beam placed against a foundation wall and is bolted to the floor slab and the floor above. This will keep the forces between the two equal. This will help permanently stabilize the wall from bowing and can be tightened over time to help further straighten the wall. The brace is made of zinc, this means the system will not rust or weaken over time.
Now David no longer has to only not worry about his basement leaking, he no longer has to worry about his basement wall bowing in thanks to MidAmerica Basement Systems. If you too are experiencing the same issue as David, do not hesitate to reach out to MidAmerica Basement Systems. We would be happy to help you!

Terry was having concerns about his crawlspace always being dark and damp. He reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have his crawlspace looked at. Mac has suggested that he have CleanSpace and SilverGlo installed to seal off moisture and insulate the crawlspace. Crewmen laid down CleanSpace Drainage Matting on the dirt ground to collect any moisture. SilverGlo was installed around the walls of the crawlspace, providing an insulation layer, making the crawlspace more energy efficient. CleanSpace Liner was then placed overtop the drainage matting and insulation, completing the crawlspace encapsulation.
Warping and molding drywall is a concerning issue for any homeowner. It is an indication of a leaking foundation, and will only cause more damage if left untreated. One solution to helping address the leaking foundation is the installation of CleanSpace and WaterGuard. CleanSpace creates a vapor barrier between the foundation and basement, keeping moisture out. As water trickles down the CleanSpace, it than collects in to the WaterGuard that directs it to the sump pump. With CleanSpace and WaterGuard it helps prevent damage from leaking foundation.

Their levels were reaching as high as 9.1 pCi/L, leaving the air in their home very unsafe.

After the Radon Mitigation system was installed, Radon levels came back at a 1.3 pCi/L, providing healthier air to breathe for Mary and Robert.
Patricia was in the process of placing her home on the market, when she was noticing interior foundation cracks, sloping floors, and doors not properly shutting. She contacted the experts of MidAmerica Basement Systems to evaluate her home’s issue. Upon inspection, it was noted that there was foundation settlement, causing all the issues. To solve the issue, it was proposed installing a Push Pier system to lift the settled area of the home back to its original state. Push Piers were installed to the sinking portion of the home, and successfully lifted and raised the home. The interior foundation cracks were less noticeable, the floors were no longer sagging, and the doors now shut with ease with the lift from the Push Pier system.
Brian L. had enough of the sinking floor in the 3 seasons room of his home. After an employee referred him to MidAmerica Basement Systems, Clayton Spinler, design specialist assessed the project, determining PolyLevel as the best solution.
Foreman Levi Freund and his team set out to level the room. In almost no time at all, the floor had been PolyLeveled, and Brian L. once again had a functional and level room.
Steve H. would get water in his basement every time it rained. The water damage on the walls was becoming too overwhelming so he decided to call the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free in-home estimate.
Soon after giving them a call, an appointment was set up with Adao Natario to come evaluate the basement. Adao decided the best solution for this specific water problem was to install a full perimeter WaterGuard system, a SuperSump pumping system, and CleanSpace walling. The WaterGuard acts as a channeling system to carry the water to the SuperSump. The SuperSump pumping system takes the water up, out, and safely away from the home. The CleanSpace walling not only gives the basement a great new look, but also blocks the water from the walls down to the WaterGuard to be pumped out.
Steve H. is very happy with his new basement waterproofing system. He now has a dry and worry free basement for many years to come.

Terry is the homeowner of these TWO crawl spaces in East Moline and wanted them both cleaned up and insulated. Terry called the MidAmerica Basement Systems team and the team sent expert Mac McDaniel in to inspect the spaces. Terry agreed to the game plan and the team sent out lead foreman Justin Bailey to head the project.
The first crawl space is the larger of the two. The team cleared out all the debris and then laid out CleanSpace Drainage Matting. The drainage system is a dimpled polyethylene membrane material that allows water to flow underneath the CleanSpace liner. The team installed SilverGlo on the walls which is a foil backed foam insulating material. The SilverGlo is impregnated with graphite, which reduces heat from escaping the space. SilverGlo is inorganic making it unlikely to deteriorate. The space was sealed with CleanSpace liner wit is a 20 mil thick plastic liner that has multiple layers of plastics with differentiating flexibility making it resistant to tears and punctures. CleanSpace is an inorganic material that also has an antimicrobial additive called UnltraFresh which prevents mold growth on the liner. The second crawl space is smaller and was fitted with the CleanSpace liner as well. MidAmerica Basement Systems is happy to have provided Terry with two clean, comfortable, and insulated crawl spaces!
