New Jersey Basement Waterproofing Company

Clifton's Leading Company in Basement Waterproofing

The water can be beautiful when the light hits Dundee Lake just right. But when water invades your basement and turns it into a mold-infested swamp–that's not quite as pretty. 

But every wet basement situation is unique–there's much to consider when detecting the problem signs and the problem source or sources. Whatever the severity of the case, our waterproofing experts will know how to design a customized solution to ensure that water doesn't invade your basement again.

Is Efflorescence on My Basement Walls Bad?

Have you noticed an almost-fluffy-looking white material on your basement's concrete floor or walls? It's natural to think it might be a mold growing on the surface, but it's a salty deposit called efflorescence. It's not just salt and minerals. It's a warning sign that you have a wet basement problem. 

As moisture seeps through the concrete, it dissolves the salt in the concrete, carrying it through the wall into your basement. When the water dries, it leaves deposits of tiny salt crystals - efflorescence.

If you should find efflorescence on your basement wall or floor, it means you have a basement water problem - call Blue Umbrella Waterproofing to put a stop to that water infiltration before more serious wet basement problems arise.

New Jersey Crawl Space Encapsulation

Clifton, NJ's #1 in Crawl Space Encapsulation and Crawl Space Waterproofing

If a home doesn't have a basement, chances are it has a crawl space. The thought process behind crawl spaces was to provide homes that didn't have basements with a buffer zone between the house and the moisture in the soil. 

The result? Not quite what we expected. Crawl spaces can become traps for humidity and pooling water, especially whenever it rains. That, in turn, leads to mold growth, termites, wood rot, and even opens the door to larger pests like rats.

Blue Umbrella can protect your Clifton home's crawl space from these problems with the help of our crawl space encapsulation and crawl space waterproofing solutions.

Here's how Blue Umbrella Waterproofing saves and protects your crawl space!

  • Blue Umbrella Waterproofing first removes any standing water in your crawl space.
  • Our crawl space team then installs drainage channels along the perimeter of your crawl space. Any captured water will run to the sump pit.
  • We then install a Blue Angel sump pump into the sump pit. We also utilize the Shipshape sump pump monitoring system.
  • Next, we seal your crawl space with a protective Richtech Industries Flexi-seal vapor barrier. We'll also seal any openings like crawl space vents and doors.
  • For greater protection against mold growth and wood rot, we also install an AprilAire crawl space dehumidifier.

By preventing outside moisture from entering the crawl space, you'll not only have a clean and dry crawl space, but you may even notice an improvement in your air quality.

How Does My Crawl Space Impact My Air Quality?

If you've noticed a musty smell or increased humidity in your living space, it might not be because you have a window open–it could be your crawl space. That's because of what's known as the Stack Effect, also known as the chimney effect. Due to temperature and air pressure differences, the air in your crawl space gets sucked upwards into your home. But that also means whatever's in your crawl space air is pulled into your home.

Here are some of the gross things that could be swooping up from your crawl space and into your home, making life less comfortable.

  • Humidity
  • Pollen
  • Mildew odors
  • Mold spores
  • Dust mite particles

All it takes is a call to Blue Umbrella Waterproofing, and we'll make sure your crawl space stays well protected!
