CleansSpace Encapsulation Transformation in Kewanee, IL CleansSpace Encapsulation Transformation in Kewanee, IL

The homeowner of this crawl space wished for usable space that would be sealed from the earth, waterproofed, and healthier overall. The team at MidAmerica Basement Systems cleaned debris from the space and fitted the space with CleansSpace. CleanSpace liner is 20 mil thick 7 ply material that is resistant to tear and punctures making it durable and long lasting. The CleanSpace fights mold growth with UltraFresh, which is an antimicrobial additive. The CleanSpace also acts as a vapor barrier making it difficult for Radon gas to enter the home. The space before is dark and cold but after the MidAmerica team seals it with CleanSpace, the homeowner has a space that cleaner, brighter, and available for use.

The homeowner of the crawl space in Kewanee wanted their crawl space to be healthy, dry and possibly usable. The team fitted the space with the patented CleanSpace liners. CleanSpace liners are a 20 mil thick, 7 layer material that is inorganic and has an additive called UltraFresh that fights mold growth. The CleanSpace liners also acts as a vapor barrier. The team also installed a SmartSump (not pictured). SmartSump is ideal for crawl spaces that have piping running through the space. If a pipe breaks, the ever strong and efficient CleanSpace liner will not allow the water to drain out of the space which could to be problematic f not addressed quickly. The SmartSump is compact enough for crawl spaces and comes equipped with the WaterWatch alarm which will alert the homeowner of any rising issues. The SmartSump has an air tight lid that allows water to drain but does not allow water vapor to escape. 

This crawl space is clean, protected and now has the potential to be extra storage space if the homeowner chooses.

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Kewanee, IL

Waterproofing your basement prevents outside water from coming in but what if a pipe bursts or the water heater leaks inside the home.

Our Products Include :
  • Waterproof, washable, insulated walls           
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended ceiling
  • Modular carpet, tile & faux wood flooring

  • Energy-efficient, double-paned basement windows
  • Attractive Sunhouse basement window wells

Unlike the average Kewanee contractor we use completely inorganic, waterproof materials. Even if the basement floods your walls and floors will not be damaged by the water. These waterproof products are patented and are built to create an attractive finished basement that lasts a lifetime.

TripleSafe and SmartSump Team Up in Kewanee, IL

This Kewanee homeowner wanted both his crawl space and basement waterproofed so he called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems.

For the crawl space, the MidAmerica Team fitted and sealed the space with CleanSpace. CleanSpace is a 20 mil thick, seven ply material that encapsulates the space to reduce moisture and radon gases. CleanSpace has an antimicrobial additive that fights mold growth. The team also installed the SmartSump, a sump pump specifically designed for crawl spaces. Comes with an airtight lid that allows water to drain but prevents water vapor from coming back up into the space. Both the TripleSafe and SmartSump come with the WaterWatch Alarm System that is triggered to alert the homeowner of rising water in the space.

For the basement, the team installed WaterGuard drainage system. WaterGuard sits above the foundation footing and is specially designed to drain wall leaks away from the foundation floor and to the sump pump. The sump pump of choice for this homeowner was the ever efficient TripleSafe sump pump. This 3 in 1 sump pumping system comes equipped with an airtight lid, 2 cast iron zoeller pumps, and the UltraSump battery back-up pump in case of a power outage. The homeowner wanted the team to also intall the UltraSump Baterry Switcher, which will double the UltraSumps pumping time. The team also installed the SanidDry XP dehumidifying and air filtration unit to help keep the air clean and healthy. The team installed ThermalDry tile flooring on the basement floor. ThermalDry is the only all-inorganic plastic subflooring material that is specially made to resist water damage, water vapor and mold. The homeowner chose ThermalDry tile flooring in Sandstone which really uplifted the space.

The homeowner has two spaces that are dry, healthy, protected, clean and beautiful. MidAmerica is thrilled to have provided this homeowner with all of their basement and crawl space needs!

Work Requests From Kewanee, IL
Vicinity of in Kewanee
Hello, we are in the work of buying an older farmhouse in the countryside of galva, IL. We are closing on it in 45 days. The original part of the house(front 1/3) is on an old brick foundation, and the ground is dirt. It was built in 1901. My main concern is that it is bowing in pretty good on the outside 3 walls, one wall is worse than the others. The brick is in fairly good condition still, it only has minimal spalling. The two other add ons to the house- the foundation is fine. So i was wondering if A. There is a way to fix the walls from bowing in or at least make it structurally sound for a few years, and if so how much would that cost? And B., if we did have to completely replace the walls, how much would that cost? Or at least give us a ballpark range. We still have to pass inspections and everything but I am just trying to get some numbers. Thank you! Best way to contact me is at my email [email protected]

Water in the basement. Very old house, but only started getting water maybe 7-8 yrs ago. No sump pump and the floors are not at all level, so would be difficult to have a sump pump. Hoping you have a solution for me!

I have water either seeping up from ground in Basement or maybe partly coming from crawl space. It seems to happen frequently whether we've had rain or not. I have no sump pump, but floor drain in second basement room. Several years ago installed "Beaver system" around outer wall which worked, but present water seems to come from middle of floor, not edges.
