Basement flooding was a regular thing at this Kenilworth, NJ home. The basement already had two sump pumps, but they were not enough to keep this basement dry. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe sump pump is comprised of three different pumps which will begin to function depending on how much water needs to be pumped out of the basement. The battery back-up will also kick on if the power goes out. This basement is always dry now!

Job Stories From Kenilworth, NJ
Quality 1st Basements Tackles A Wet Basement in Kenilworth, NJ

Brianna is a first-time home buyer. When she purchased her home, the basement had a sump pump system and functioned perfectly. Two rain storms went by and no water was in site. Fast forward another month and Kenliworth, NJ was hit with almost 10 inches of rain but Brianna had no worries because she knew she had a sump. If the pump had a built-in alarm system it would have alarmed Brianna that something was wrong and the amount of water coming into the basement was too much for her one pump to handle. Instead the pump stopped working and her basement flooded with almost 3 inches of water. In a panic she called her father for help on what she should do and so he called Quality 1st Basements for his daughter.

System Design Specialist, Mark, went out to inspect Brianna's basement and sit down with her and her father to design a solution that best fit her basement. Mark explained that the most common cause of a wet basement is footing drain failure. This is when the soil around the outside of the homes foundation can't drain water and becomes saturated. All of that weight of the wet soil creates hydrostatic pressure and forces the water into the basement through the join between the footing and the wall or under the footing. He suggested our interior drainage system known as WaterGuard. Is installed on the top of the footing instead of alongside it. This will prevent mud from getting into the drain and blocking flow of water. WaterGuard has a big drain outlet to our TripleSafe Sump pump so once the water seeps through the foundation, the WaterGuard collects the water and directs it straight to the pump. Our TripleSafe Sump Pump is the Top-of-the-line system that has three pumps in one for the ultimate protection. Our sump pump not only has a sump pimp liner that accepts water directly from the ground as well as larger inlet holes to allow your perimeter drainage system to empty into it. The TripleSafe Sump pump also has an Airtight Sump Lid to prevent water vapor from evaporating into the basement air, a pump stand, floor drain in sump lid and of course a pump alarm. Our pump alarm will sound automatically when the water reaches a level above the point where the pump should normally turn on. This will give you enough time to do something before the floor gets wet. 

Not only did the Full waterproofing System give Brianna and her dad peace of mind but also made sure her big investment would be safe against basement flooding.  

Complete Crawl Space Encapsulation in Kenilworth, NJ

A Crawl Space is a damp, dark and nasty area underneath your home. It can sometimes  have either a window or a vent that will let in water, humidity, cold drafty air, and even pests. Since your home sits on this space, the air inside will travel up through to the first level and then throughout the rest of your home. A cleaner crawl space is cleaner air for you and your family to breathe in. To create a cleaner crawl space, you would need to seal it off from all the harmful things the outside environment can bring into your crawl space. This is exactly why Ray D. from Kenilworth, NJ contacted the expects in Crawl Space Encapsulation. 

Ray noticed that not only were pests living inside his crawl space but the area contained high humidity and moisture developed on his pipes and on his duct work. His walls were damp and a terrible musty odor hit you as soon as you entered inside. Overall the crawl space was wet and smelly. He needed a professional to come in and make his crawl space a dry and healthy area for his water heater and everything else he had inside his crawl space. He knew he had to call Quality 1st Basements for a solution. System Design Specialist, Laszlo, did a full inspection and then sat down with Ray to go over what he discovered. 

Laszlo recommended that the vent covers be sealed to prevent humidity from getting inside. He also recommended a full waterproofing system to prevent future water leaks as well as a CleanSpace on the floors and walls. This Vapor Barrier is a bright white liner that blocks the water and water vapor from breaking through. He also recommended a Sedona Dehumidifier to circulate dry air throughout the space to prevent moisture and musty odors from forming. This encapsulation would create a dry and healthy space underneath Ray's home and would create cleaner air inside. Ray was amazed that in just one day his crawl space went from a dark and damp space to a brighter and cleaner area that he could actually use as additional storage space.
