Clean and Dry Basement in Galesburg, IL

Gregory and Linda had a water problem in their basement for too long and decided to make a call for help. They called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free in-home estimate.

After voicing their problem, an appointment was set up with Mac McDaniel to come out and evaluate their basement. Mac decided the best solution for their particular water problem was to have a TripleSafe pumping system, BrightWall, and a full perimeter of WaterGuard installed. The WaterGuard is a trenching system done in the home to channel the water to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe is the best in the business when it comes to pumping all of the water up, out, and safely away from the home. The BrightWall is exactly what its name describes, a bright wall. It gives the basement a clean and finished look, while also blocking water from the wall down to the WaterGuard system to be pumped out by the TripleSafe.

Gregory and Linda have been very happy with their new worry free basement. It will now be dry for many years to come.

Concrete Repair in Galesburg, IL

Homeowner Charles and Elaine have lived in their home since it was built in 1976. For several years they have noticed that the concrete around their pool has been cracking and sinking and has been getting progressively worse every year.  Small ports are inserted into the concrete slabs where the foam will be pumped under the concrete. The foam is injected under the slab and fills the void under the slab that is causing the sinking and cracking. The foam expands into the void and hardens causing the concrete slab to lift and level.

Ugly and Wet Basement Made New in Bettendorf, IA

Grant has lived in his home for the last eight years. In the last eight year, he has had problems with the water in his basement. They decided that it was time to seek professional advice when they talked about selling his home. The water issues in their home required a full perimeter waterproofing system. The waterproofing system was a full perimeter WaterGuard channeling system and a Triplesafe sump pump. The WaterGuard system is a channeling system that moves water out of the home to the sump pump. The sump pump then pumps the water out of the home.

Crawlspace Now Dry in Galesburg, IL

Homeowner Christine has lived in her home for a few years and in that time she noticed the crawlspace under the home was wet and was starting to get mold. She wanted the crawlspace in her home to be free of water and avoid potential damage. After a full inspection of the inside and the outside of her home, she made the decision to have her crawlspace encapsulated. The CleanSpace system is similar to a thick pool liner. The liner creates a barrier along the walls that will keep water out. By encapsulating the home to keep moisture and mold out, you can also keep bug and rodents from getting in.
