This full-featured waterproofing system includes a liner, a floor drain, a high-quality cast iron sump pump, and the patented WaterWatch Alarm, which will provide much-needed peace of mind should water levels rise to a dangerous level.

Huntsville, TX Mold Remediation
We were recommended by the mold inspector to perform a whole house mold remediation due to a tree limb damaging the roof and allowing rain to enter the house.  Water intrusion from poor exterior drainage was also an issue.  Homeowner lives in Austin and needed a company she could trust without her being on site.  We removed the damaged construction material, rebuilt several exterior walls, then HEPA vacuumed and wiped down the entire house with an antimicrobial solution.  In addition, we worked with Lacy Construction who designed and installed a French drain to make sure this doesn't happen again.
CleanSpace SmartSump pump, CleanSpace Encapsulation in Huntsville, TX
A customer in Huntsville has a lakeside home with an open, exposed crawl space. Over time, the consistent moisture from the lake air created a serious mold and mildew hazard both to the homeowners health and to the quality of the home. They hired the professional staff at Olympic Restoration to prevent further damage. Knowing that a home on a lake property will always have moisture to deal with, the Olympic team installed the SmartSump pump system and EZ Flow piping to capture any incoming water and direct it to the pump. Next they installed both the drainage matting and the super-durable CleanSpace encapsulation liner to permanently prevent moisture and pests from getting into the crawl space. The properly-sized humidifier will also keep outdoor moisture at a healthy and safe level underneath the home. And to provide the most peace of mind for the homeowners, two wireless sensors were installed, which will display temperature and humidity levels on a panel inside the home. 
Mold Remediation and Dehumidifier in La Porte, TX
Years of exposure to the humid conditions living near the Galveston Bay created a serious problem for homeowners in La Porte. Mold grew in the crawl space insulation causing the “Stack Effect,” where the warm air rises and spreads throughout the home. Visible mold slowly accumulated in several main rooms causing significant damage to the structure of the home and also potential health concerns for the family members. The expert mold remediation technicians at Olympic Restoration were hired and first ensured that the source of the mold was safely removed. So that the mold would not reappear, Olympic Restoration created much better conditions in the crawl space. A SmartSump system, which is specially designed for crawl spaces, was installed along with an energy-efficient dehumidifier, which will maintain ideal air conditions to deter future mold and mildew.
