    You’ve washed every clothing item in your house but there still seems to be a musty stench wafting around. Instead of using your time cluelessly looking for the problem, call Ayers Basement Systems. Tim and Carol decided to contact us after learning their crawl space was harboring mold, smells, and a ton of moisture. 

    Our certified systems design specialist determined that the Clean Space Encapsulation System would best combat the family’s issues and ensure a long lasting solution. To fully waterproof Tim and Carol’s crawlspace, our team utilized the crawl space vapor barrier liner, drainage matting and the SaniDry XP. The vapor barrier liner seals the dirt ground, preventing the evaporation of moisture into the air. In combination with the liner, the SaniDry XP dehumidifier eliminates any of the remaining moisture in the air. No moisture means no mold!
