When this customer called our office they said they needed their sump pump serviced because they didn't think it was working properly. Our inspector came out and after seeing their "sump pump" recommended our Triple Safe Sump pump with battery back up. In addition to that, they also installed a full CleanSpace system.

This crawl space was covered with mud and water. The insulation was hanging down and the vapor barrier was torn in many areas. We waterproofed the crawl space by installing Cleanspace, a Triplesafe sump pump, and a Sanidry Sedona Dehumidifier. We then insulated the crawlspace by installing Terrablock and spray foam insulation. Keeping this crawl space dry and healthy for years to come.

Expert Crawl Space and Mold Damage Repair in Salem, OR

Because of their location in the home, crawl spaces are an area of the home that seems to accumulate damage almost unnoticed. When there is water damage, debris, or mold growth in your crawl space, it causes more serious problems for other areas of your home like your foundations. By installing vapor barriers and thermal insulation with our crawl space encapsulation system you can seal moisture and bugs out while keeping the space clean, dry, and energy-efficient. 

Major signs of crawl space problem

  • Sagging floors
  • Condensation
  • Mold
  • Wood rot
  • Foundation cracks

Does your crawl space have a musty smell and humidity? Then it might be a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and wood rot. Mold can be damaging to wood over long periods of time and be a costly project to fix. Don't take chances on the health of your home and call the professionals at John's Waterproofing. We catch mold problems in their early stages and repair them so that they don't turn into a larger, more expensive problem.

Basement Drainage in Salem

This homeowner had just purchased an older home that they fell in love with. Everything was perfect except the basement, it had water leaking in the window and causing moisture problems. There was damage to the basement walls with cracking and some mold damage. Our crews went in and installed our WaterGuard system that goes along the basement wall and goes unseen. The water then drains into the TripleSafe sump pump, it is a three pump system that works together depending on the amount of water draining. The third pump is also battery operated that will run in case of a power outage preventing water damage. We also installed a well duct under the window that drains the water into the WaterGuard system. After getting a proper drainage system we installed our ThermalDry wall that helps insulate and keep the basement warm. It is also made of an inorganic material so it can't have water damage or moisture build up. This customer was so happy that they were on their way to have the perfect new home and not have to worry about a leaking basement. 

Prepping a Basement for finishing

This home had water coming into the back part of their basement, the homeowners had already finished the front part and were eager to get the back part finished as well, but they knew they couldn't finish it without fixing the water issue first. So they called us out to give them a permanent solution to their water issues. We installed our basement waterproofing system which included an interior perimeter drain system called waterguard, sump pump called the super sump, that is rated one of the top sump pumps in the industry right now and Thermaldry Basement wall system which helps act as a moisture barrier and insulation to keep the basement comfortable. Now, this dry basement is ready to be transformed into a dry storage area to protect the precious memories that are stored down there and a comfortable space for them to make new memories in!

Odors Coming from Salem, OR Crawlspace

This homeowner called John's Waterproofing because she felt like 'fishy' odors were coming from her crawlspace. She was worried about dead rodents and other issues that might be causing the smell. Upon inspection, our inspector Daniel found that there was evidence of mice from the droppings, and water intrusion that was contributing the odors that the homeowner was experiencing. Daniel suggested that we install our patented Cleanspace encapsulation system, spray foam insulation, and a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier.

Karen agreed to our suggestions and Ramon and his team began installing our systems. They removed the old fiberglass insulation because fiberglass retains moisture, and replaced it with Spray Foam insulation on the walls of the crawlspace. Spray Foam is closed celled which means that it will not allow for moisture and we put it on the walls because it works more effectively than it would underneath the floors by working with the Cleanspace system. They installed Cleanspace over the floors and walls, completely encapsulating the space from exterior effects. It blocks out cold drafts, keeps out all moisture/water, and is patented against rodents and insects. Cleanspace is a super durable, 20 mil thick polyethylene composition that when installed by John's Waterproofing, comes with a 25-year warranty. Because we sealed off the vents with the encapsulation system, we needed to install a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to make it a controlled environment. The SaniDry Sedona is the most efficient dehumidifier that stops mold, mildew, and odors while cleaning and filtering the air in a highly energy efficient way.

Karen is very happy with her new system and no longer worries about rodents or moisture causing odors in her house. She is grateful to have the extra structural protection as well.

3 years ago we moved into this home and had mice/rats in the crawl space. All bedding material/insulation was removed, crawl space sanitized and new vapor barrier installed, however we have still had transient rodent activity since and are reluctant to add back insulation. We would like your evaluation of sealing the crawl space to ensure no rodent activity and reinstallation of insulation.

Have a crack in an underground basement wall that originates at our main sewer line and extends across the better part of the wall. The crack is letting moisture in, I don't think the ground behind the wall drains very well. The wall has been recently painted in the last couple months and appears to be bubbling up because of moisture. Need to know what's going on and what my options are as far as repair. Call or email is best for me. Thanks

Good Afternoon. I'm a current homeowner of a 1927 cottage in downtown Salem. The house has a basement and every winter we have a few cracks that weep just a little bit of water making me feel uneasy about finishing off our unfinished basement. Even though we have a sump pump system linked in with my downspouts to help keep water away, we still have some water creeping in on a yearly basis. This past year our sump pump quit and that required several towels to keep the basement dry. I'm interested in getting someone out to our home to see what can be done to waterproof the entire basement because we're interested in finishing it and making it a comfortable part of our home instead of being the storage room that's cold and concrete. Please contact me via email as that is the best way to communicate. Thank you!
