Wet Basement Stinks Up Century Old Home in Uxbridge, Ontario

Old homes are beautiful. They have a charm about them that can’t be explained, and each stone and piece of wood tells a story. There is a uniqueness to them that can’t be replicated, but this comes with a price. As a home gets older, more problems tend to present themselves.

A family in Uxbridge, Ontario, has a home that’s been in the family for years. It was built in 1887 and has a stone foundation and dirt floor basement. In recent years the basement has felt damp, and a musty smell has travelled from the basement to the rest of the house. Concerned about mould damage and tired of the smell, the family reached out to Clarke Basement Systems.

System Design Specialist Chris Luke met with the homeowner and inspected the home. Chris presented her with a solution, and a date was set up or the installation. Foreman Lucio Flores started by encapsulating the basement floor with CleanSpace® Vapour Barrier. CleanSpace® gives the space a clean look while isolating the dirt floor from the rest of the basement. Drainage Matting was also installed beneath the vapour barrier to help any moisture seep back into the ground.

To remove the musty smell, Lucio installed a SaniDry MoistureLOC® Dehumidifier. This will filter the air while also keeping the relative humidity below 50%. High humidity levels promote mould growth and can cause serious damage to the framework.

The customer is thrilled that her old home is dry, and her air is clean. She has protected her family’s century-old investment and no longer has to worry about moisture damage.

The heat is adjustable. You can turn on your AC and a fan, open a window and change layers. Humidity, on the other hand, is a whole different ball game. Without a dehumidifier, adjusting to humidity is nearly impossible. For example, this crawl space in Uxbridge, Ontario, had a musty smell and tons of humidity rising into other areas of the house. The humidity left the homeowners uncomfortable and nauseous because of the stench. The problem needed to be fixed, so the water build-up didn’t bring in allergens, mold, warping in the flooring, or unwanted critters. 

 

With little to no research, our new clients found us. They gave us a call, and we were able to schedule an appointment that following week. We sent our experienced System Design Specialist, Chris Luke, to the home, where he provides an honest estimate suggesting a product best suitable for their crawl space. Chris told our AprilAire ® Dehumidifier since it saves money on your electrical bill, collects the most moisture, can plug into your existing HVAC system, and is quiet. On a later day that week, we had our installation specialist Cam Fraser install the unit in the crawl space. Thankfully the installation took little to no time since it is a simple plug-in product. The owners noticed the climate change immediately and are thrilled they don’t have to put up with the nasty smell anymore.

A finished basement is an excellent asset for a home, but when the carpeted area is always getting wet, it can ruin it all.

A customer in Uxbridge, Ontario, was tired of dealing with wet carpets and drywall whenever there was heavy rain. He couldn’t see where the water was coming in but knew the general area. He decided to best option was to call Clarke Basement Systems.

System Design Specialist Chris Luke met with the homeowner and inspected his basement. Chris determined that two form-tie holes were leaking behind the drywall. Chris explained how our FlexiSpan® Crack Repair System uses polyurethane to seal the crack from the inside out. The customer was happy to hear about the solution, and a date was booked for the repair.

Foreman Mark Dougherty started by injecting sealant directly into the crack. Additional sealant was used for the exterior, and an in-floor drain was installed for added peace of mind. Mark repeated the same process with the other crack.

The client is happy that he doesn’t need to wonder where water is coming from anymore. He knows the carpet, drywall and entire basement are fully protected and waterproofed.

Fast & Affordable Concrete Repair

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Uxbridge home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse with time, but we can fix it for you!

Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam to provide reliable concrete lifting & leveling solutions. Small holes are drilled in the concrete and the expansion of the foam lifts & levels the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, requires larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel.

If your home has cracked concrete steps, pool decks, patios, or other slabs, then NexusPro is the right solution. NexusPro repairs concrete cracks and joints and is ultra-durable, so it will withstand UV rays, extreme weather, and more.

After utilizing our expert concrete repair solutions, consider the powerful concrete sealant, SealantPro. SealantPro further protects your concrete by bonding with it to guard against oil, gasoline, liquids, and other debris. In just one coat, SealantPro extends the life of your concrete by 3 to 5 times overall. 

Call us today to learn more about our proven concrete leveling, cracked concrete repair, and concrete sealing techniques.

Job Stories From Uxbridge, ON
AprilAire Installation in Crawl Space, Uxbridge ON

Many homes struggle with Canadian summers because of the moisture in the air. Moisture can come into your home at an alarming rate to the point that HVAC units cannot keep up. When your system can't keep up, humidity lies in your home. Once there is enough humidity in your home, mold can form, bugs might be frequent visitors, and floors may warp. Regulate your home's humidity with one of our patented products! In Uxbridge, Ontario, a crawl space was so moist that it gave off a musty smell throughout the home! With the problem only getting worse, we received a call from our new customers, then sent out our System Design Specialist  Chris Luke, over to give an honest and effective quote. He suggested that an AprilAire® Dehumidifier be installed in the space so the homeowners can save money on electrical bills and properly dehumidify the space. Dehumidifying the room effectively will also get rid of the smell almost immediately. 

 

On a later day, our installation specialist Cam Fraser went to the home with the AprilAire and began the installation. The installation process is simple since it connects to your existing HVAC unit and only requires a power source to function. The process was effortless and amazed the homeowners how such a small product could be so effective for the home. They misunderstood how harmful moisture can affect a home until now! Thanks to AprilAire, the homeowners don't have to care.

Quick Cracked Wall Repair in Uxbridge, ON

A home in Uxbridge, Ontario, had a crack in their foundation behind the drywall. Having a crack coming from the corner of the window is a very common problem. The crack was impacting the sale of the home, as the crack showed signs of seepage. There was water damage on the trim of the window and the homeowners needed to fix it before they could sell. 

The customer called Clarke Basement Systems and talked to Chris Luke, who explained everything that would be done to fix the crack. Mark Dougherty and his team came in and used Flexispan on the cracked foundation. Flexispan is a patented, warrantied repair and a permanent solution. The customer now has a Dry floor and will be able to sell the home, allowing the next homeowner to be worry free.

We have musty smell coming from a dirt crawl space at the front of our house. We thought it was our air conditioning but now realize that the smell is coming from there. We recently had renovations done in the main part of our house and think that old insulation got knocked out. As well we think that the new insulation that we had put into the main part of our house during the renovation does not allow the old air flow it used. Anyways we sure are hoping you can help us with this situation. The space is at the front of our house and accessed by a hole from the basement. It does have some duct work. Thanks in advance. Cathy

I have a crack in my foundation wall that runs from the top to bottom, there is a small amount of water seeping in in the lower half. The basement is unfinished.

We just acquired this Farm property in July 2021. There are cracks in the exterior brickwork of the house that have been patched, but the previous owner did not address the cause of the cracks. I think the water pipe from the house to septic is cracked or broken. I will have to address that separately, but I am worried that there has been foundation damage. In addition, the garage slab has sunk and is broken in several places. I expect the cause of that problem is different. Can you come out and take a look?

Hi there. We discovered some mold on one of the walls in our basement. I realize this isn't the time of year for digging, but it would be good if you could diagnose the cause from inside and, if we will need to dig, get on your schedule for spring. Let me know. Thanks.

Good afternoon, I have uncovered some evident (but minor) damage to laminate flooring in a portion of my basement, along with some mold in the cracks (house I just recently purchased). Inspector, 2 months ago, had used infrared tester and said there was no sign of moisture in the basement.There was a bed covering much of the area and we never noticed at time of home tour / inspection. If I was going to have you guys come take a look, what is process / fee for this? Also, what would your team examine? Under floor boards, behind drywall, etc. ? Much appreciated Trevor

We have a crack in the basement wall. The house is 20 years old, it only leaks during severe heavy rain fall. Can you please provide a quotation to repair. I would expect that the repair would need to be done from the outside. Our basement is not finished.
