This crawl space had major water problems, which become even more disgusting when a dirt floor is involved. Everything is muddy and moldy and impossible to walk in. Since HVAC systems are usually in the crawl space, this can cause major headaches.
The substandard door and crawl space vents are both major entry points for water and debris.
The dimpled surface of the drainage matting allows water to move more quickly without getting stuck to the CleanSpace barrier, while the SmartSump pump will actively discharge water outside.
CleanSpace is affixed to the walls and then extended across the entire floor, right on top of the drainage matting.
The rim joist (that area around the perimeter of the crawl space 'ceiling') needs a product like FrothPak (it's the orange foamy stuff) for effective insulation. It can be sprayed into every nook and cranny for complete insulation, and is inorganic and waterproof to prevent mold growth or degradation.
With CleanSpace on the walls, floor, and support piers, this crawl space is protected from air, water, and any nasty debris it that might come along. And with the crawl space protected, so is the home.
Water, debris, critters - none are any match for the Everlast crawl space door.
After our customers purchased a home for their daughter, they discovered that it had a myriad of issues, including a crawl space full of water. When your child's comfort and safety are in play, you want to make sure every problem is taken care of, so they called us.
We encapsulated the crawl space with CleanSpace vapor barrier and drainage matting, along with a SmartSump pump to keep water from colecting in the crawl space and creating problems like mold and wood rot. We also installed SilverGlo insulation panels to keep the crawl space - and the house - warm.
