This homeowner in Sedro Woolley, Washington had standing water in her basement and crawl space. Mold was creeping up the drywall in her basement stairwell, and the musty moldy odors were traveling to other areas of the house.
After Karol was referred to Rainy Day Basement Systems by All American Contractor, we started on an action plan. CleanSpace was used to encapsulate the crawl space and wrap the basement stairwell to prevent moisture and mold growth. Drainage systems and sump pumps were also installed to effectively mitigate ongoing water issues.
Because Karol’s home is built into a hill, water kept flowing down the hillside and into her basement and crawl space. To solve this issue, Rainy Day installed a WaterGuard system with a SuperSump pump in her basement and a drainage trench with a TripleSafe pump in her crawl space. The basement was also equipped with a SaniDry XP dehumidifier for moisture control.
This before picture illustrates the pump system that was in Karol’s crawl space. The old pump did not address the problem like it was supposed to, resulting in pooling water and contributing to the existence of mold. As seen in the after picture, we installed a triple pump system called a TripleSafe that can pump up to 6,200 gallons of water per hour and has a battery backup system.
In a follow-up meeting, Karol said she was very happy and that the system has been working great. She now has peace of mind and can rest easy.

Every six months or so, clients have their products serviced to maintain them and keep them clean. This is an example of how much material can add up in that amount of time if the space isn't encapsulated, it also shows how Rainy Day leaves it after the service.
