Everyone wants healthy breathing air, right? Yes.
Not everyone has a clean and encapsulated crawlspace or basement though, and those two things go hand in hand, especially when a homeowners space under their home is dirty and moldy! Not many people know that the air downstairs makes its way up to your living area and becomes the air you breathe.
When a homes crawl space floor is dirt there is no barrier for the moisture in the ground, so it seeps into insulation and wood paneling causing mold.
This Brownsville family wanted healthy air, so they decided to have their crawl space encapsulated.
Our crew installed CleanSpace Drainage Matting and Cleanspace Moisture Barrier Liner, as well as a sump pump, EverLast door, and Mold-X2 Botanical and Stain Remover. Mold-X2 Botanical prevents mold from recurring and the Mold-X2 Stain Remover cleans contaminated services.
The moisture in this crawl space has been a problem since the family moved in 5 years ago. As they have worked down the list of home repairs it was time to fix the crawl space and address the moisture problem. Now that it is complete the family wished it would have been the first repair to the home.
With the crawl space encapsulated, moisture is controlled, floors are warmer, utility bills are lower, air is cleaner, and the family is healthier.
The standard wooden board over a crawl space door is not very impressive.
If in good shape it will likely keep some of the critters out but that is about it.
A non-organic insulated door is a much better way to go for your crawl space.
The custom EverLast crawl space door will not mold or mildew. the hardware will not rust.
Critters cannot get around the sealed door.
Prevents drafts ( a full encapsulation will prevent all crawl space drafts)
The EverLast Crawl Space door will properly cover and seal the crawl space entry.
The homeowners had noticed problems with their recent purchase of this 90's home as soon as the first heavy rainfall came. After 5 inches of rainfall, they had issues of leaks coming from the crawl space running through an interior wall and into their garage. Now that is a problem that no one wants to have!
They knew that this problem could only lead to bigger issues, such as smelly odors and uneven floors, so they gave us a call. We decided to seal their crawl space with CleanSpace drainage matting and liner, as well as add a sump pump, so there is no leaking or flooding. We also installed the very powerful and energy efficient SaniDry dehumidifier to help with mold and mildew problems.
The family now has a permanent solution AND a healthy crawl space!
This Nashville rental had issues with water leaks and mold that needed a permanent solution. This was a valuable storage space that was going unused. By waterproofing the basement and installing TripleSafe sump pump system the home is protected and mold free.
Healthy Crawl Space in Chapmansboro TN
This sweet little ranch home had been vacant for a couple of years and the new owners noticed an odor that was more than just the strange empty house smell.
After looking at the condition of the crawl space it was easy to identify multiple contributing factors.
Cleaning out the dirty, falling insulation and other debris in the crawl space was a start.
Encapsulating with proper vapor barrier was the next step.
A SandiDry Sedona Dehumidifier was added to control humidity eliminating mold.
This Kentucky family had owned their home for 17 years before they realized they had a bigger problem on their hands than some slight molding. The slight molding became a larger problem as the moisture soaked into their insulation, which in turn would lead to their wood rotting. The family already had problems with unwanted insects and other rodents, but their moist wood made their home a termite heaven. That does not even begin to cover the foundation issues that arise from moisture in the air.
Our solution to their problem was cleaning up all debris, sealing any holes that critters could crawl through and fully encapsulating their basement, as well as tearing out their old insulation!
We also installed the SaniDry Sedona, a revolutionary de-humidification systems designed to lower humidity while removing dust, odors and mold spores from the air.
