Job Stories From Livingston, NJ
Nasty Crawl Space in Livingston, NJ Repaired

Homeowner living in the beautiful area of Livingston, NJ discovered water in their crawl space, coming up through the floor and seeping through the walls. Upon this discovery, they also noticed a lot of moisture from the amount of water they had received. Luckily, they had recently received the Direct Advantage Magazine in the mail which had a Quality 1st Basement Systems ad along with a crawl space coupon inside. Quality 1st Basement Systems got the call and schedule a free estimate appointment. 

The System Design Specialist, did a full inspection and suggested a SuperSump Pump System along with a Sedona Dehumidifier. Both systems work together too create a dry and healthy environment in the crawl space. The SuperSump pump has a built-in alarm system that will alert the homeowner right away if it detects any water. The Sedona, although is small to fit inside a crawl space,  has the capabilities to blow effectively in large spaces.

The homeowner was relieved to know that they no longer have to worry about water or moisture in their crawl space thanks to Quality 1st Basement Systems.  

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Livingston, NJ

Homeowner living in Livingston, NJ could smell a musty odor coming from inside his crawl space. He had water intrusion in the past which made him believe that there could still be water coming in from time to time when it rained. He also knew there was high moisture throughout the crawl space. He called to schedule an appointment with System Design Specialist, Thomas Neheme, to inspect the crawl space and provide him with a solution for his concerns. 

The process of Waterproofing the crawl space includes the installation of a SmartPipe drainage pipe around the entire perimeter, deigned to collect the water coming in through the foundation walls and floors. CleanSpace Drainage Matting installed to the walls and floors to eliminate standing water by directing it to the drainage system. The SmartSump Pump would then pump the water out and no less then 15 feet away from the home.

Thomas recommended a SaniDry Sedona Crawl Space Dehumidifier as well. The Sedona easily fits in a small crawl space yet has a strong blower to effectively dry any size crawl space. It is also capable of removing 100 pints per day of moisture for less the electricity cost then your standard dehumidifier. Quality 1st was pleased to assist in making this home dryer, safer and more comfortable for the homeowner and his family to enjoy. 

WaterGuard Installation for Your Livingston, NJ Home

When water was coming into Xiuji J.’s basement, a friend suggested that they contact Quality 1st Basement Systems for a lasting waterproofing solution.  They already has a French Drain installed in part of the basement, but were looking to install additional drains for the other side of the basement as well.

Rick Hacker went out to check out the problem and suggest a comprehensive plan.  He suggested the installation of our unique WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system.  This practically designed is perfect for basement installation because of its placement.  WaterGuard sits on top of the footing and out of the soil under your basement floor so that it is never at risk to clog.  

Xiuji J. can rest assured that the WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system will keep the basement healthy and dry for years to come.  No more worrying about the next heavy rain for this home!

Basement Waterproofing in Livingston, NJ

Basement water is something that plagues many, many homes- new and old.  Jennifer W. noticed some water in her basement and needed help identifying the source and a permanent solution.  Waterproofing specialist Damon Ludwig met with Jennifer for a free estimate and recommended covering half the basement walls in CleanSpace, a SuperSump sump pump, UltraSump battery backup, and WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system. 

In one short day Victor Leon and his trained team of basement waterproofing installers set up all of these products.  The SuperSump sump pump includes the best pump available with a mechanical float switch.  It is also designed to house a secondary battery backup sump pump- the UltraSump.  The UltraSump guarantees a dry basement even during power outages or any other pump failure.

Jennifer W. now no longer has to worry about water in her home. Quality 1st Basement Systems came up with a permanent basement waterproofing solution that keeps her basement clean and dry all year round!

Wet, Musty Odor in Basement and Crawl Space

David S. was sick of the musty odor in his basement.  And what’s even worse- the smell was spreading to the rest of his home as well.  His home was ranch style with a block wall foundation, had a partially finished basement, and a big open concrete space next to the basement.  To address the musty basement odor, waterproofing expert Kenneth Peare suggested the installation of a SaniDry crawl space dehumidifier, CleanSpace liner, and Drainage Matting. 

To waterproof the basement, Kenneth recommended a SuperSump sump pump, UltraSump battery backup, and WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system.  The SaniDry dehumidifier is effective in stopping mold and mildew growth, which in turn eliminates wet, musty basement odors.  It protects the crawl space, basement, and entire home from unwanted mold and mildew that often create allergic reactions for many people.

With the help of Quality 1st Basement Systems, David S. no longer has to worry about the wet, musty odor in his Livingston, NJ home.  He can rest assured that water and moisture will no longer be a problem in his basement or crawl space, and it can now be a clean, healthy space for everyone to enjoy.
