Job Stories From Jo Daviess County, IL
Mystery Water Intrusion Solved in Galena, IL

The homeowner was not pleased with the condition of this basement in Galena, they were having water issues in the basement and so they called the professionals at MidAmerica Basement Systems. A few years back they had a curtain drain installed and it worked until recently and now the basement is getting water seepage again. The basement is finished with drywall and so they do not know where the water is coming in from. The team sent an expert and the source was soon uncovered behind a portion of the finished wall. The team was able to address the issue with minimal disturbance.

To address water intrusion, the team installed the patented SuperSump. The SuperSump is an efficient sump pumping system that comes with special features to help keep basements dry, such as the WaterWatch alarm system that will alert the homeowner of a potential problem. The SuperSump has an air tight lid and CleanPump stand to keep the system debris free and therefor functioning properly. 

The team installed the WaterGuard around the perimeter of the space to drain water to the SuperSump. Then the walls were lined with CleanSpace waterproofing system to help direct wall leaks to the WaterGuard. The CleanSpace also combats mold growth with UltraFresh, an antimicrobial agent. The 20 mils thick material is also a vapor barrier to provide protection from outside influences.

Now the homeowners have a basement they can feel good about. MidAmerica Basement Systems is happy to have provided these homeowners with a space that is dryer and healthier!
