Dennis and Shonda have lived in their home for over 15 years. When they were having water in their crawlspace they called MidAmerica Basement Systems. Having water in your crawlspace can lead to mold and structural damage. CleanSpace in a crawlspace can help drain the water and help with the humidity.
Homeowner was experiencing water intrusion where the foundation walls meet the floor and through cracks in the floor. She called the professionals at MidAmerica Basement Systems. The team sent an expert out to inspect the home and provide a free estimate within the same day. Excited about having these problems fixed, the team began the project.
To address water coming in from the perimeter, the team installed WaterGuard. WaterGuard is designed to drain wall leaks and rising ground water from the perimeter into the new SuperSump, which comes with special features that make it stand out among other sump pump systems such as a perforated and durable liner that allows ground water to drain into the unit, an airtight lid that allows water to drain into the unit but prevents water vapor to rise, and a WaterWatch alarm that will alert Amy if there are any problems.
The team constructed a discharge line that allowed water to be pumped to the LawnScape away from the home. To further protect Amy's basement during the cold winter months, the team installed IceGuard which is designed to eject water away from the foundation walls if a pipe freezes, preventing flooding.

The call center listened to Sue’s problem and sent out Mark Kurtz, a trained design specialist, to further inspect the issue. Mark proposed a custom solution to fix the issue which included a TripleSafe pumping system and a full perimeter of WaterGuard. The full perimeter of WaterGuard will filter the water to the TripleSafe pumping system, where it will be pumped out of the home a safe distance away.
Sue B. was extremely happy she was able to fix her water problem without having to dig up the outside of her home. Her basement is now dry and will be for many years, she now has no worries about the basement being wet after it rains.
Barbara M. has had a water problem in her basement for a while and she was tired of dealing with it. She was referred by an employee to get a free estimate from MidAmerica Basement Systems.
Dan Garner, a system design specialist, at MidAmerica Basement Systems was sent to diagnose the water problem in the basement. Dan decided the best solution for the water problem was to have a TripleSafe and SuperSump pumping systems installed, along with a WaterGuard system around the perimeter of the basement. The WaterGuard is a drainage channel that will lead the water to either the TripleSafe or SuperSump pumping systems, where it will be pumped out away from the home. A SaniDry dehumidifier was also installed in the basement.
Barbara M. now has a dry basement and could not be happier. She no longer has the worry of going to sleep or leaving her home and wondering if the basement will be dry.
