Stairs From Bilco Door
Stairs leading down from the bilco door. Water leaks in through this entrance at time.
Storage Area in Damp Basement
Storing items is never a good idea in places that may flood or grow mold.
Dirt Crawl Space
A dirt crawl space can be dangerous to the home as it can allow water up through the floor and moisture into your home.
Mold in the Beams
This mold is right below the floor of the home. Moisture can greatly damage any wooden components in the crawl space.
This pipe is so rusted as a result of the water and moisture being allowed into the crawl space.
This support is not well installed and is very unsafe. The patented SmartJack would be a great solution to this issue.
Debris in the Crawl Space
All the dirt and other debris make this crawl space a very unpleasant place to be in.
This shaky support is being given the job of holding up one of the main beams in the home.
Another View of the Shaky Support
It is very obvious that this support was just thrown together. As it failed more, it looks like just another piece of wood was added to the setup.
Another View of the Dirt Floor
This crawl space is very unpleasant with its dirt floors, debris, and mold issues. Dry Guys can transform this space into something that is clean and usable.
Old Sump Pump
Besides the nasty crawl space, this home also had a basement area that was getting water. This old sump pump was inefficient at getting the water out.
Water Heater Near the Sump
This is a shot of the water heater in the basement area. Some water damage is visible.
Rust on the Water Heater
The line of rust along the bottom of the water heater shows the level that the water has previously come up to.
