Dark, Dank Crawl Space
This crawl space had constant moisture issues, standing water in half of the crawl space, and mold growing on the beams.
Ineffective Plastic Sheeting in Crawl Space
Many times, people will put down basic plastic sheeting to protect the crawl space. But it isn't a true barrier, and when it isn't properly installed, it tends to get pushed around and balled up.
Mold on Support Beams
By the time you can see mold, you're seeing colonies of millions of spores. Over time, mold can eat through beams like this, threatening the structural integrity of the home.
Joist Insulation in Crawl Space
We used FrothPak spray insulation on the rim joist to prevent incoming air. Spray insulation expands to ensure total protection.
Drainage Matting Improves Water Movement
Encapsulating a wet crawl space can cause problems, as the CleanSpace sticks to the ground and doesn't let water flow to the sump pump. By installing dimpled drainage matting first, we create just enough space for easy movement.
CleanSpace Brightens Up Crawl Space
This crawl space had an uneven floor, which can be a safety issue. The bright white vapor barrier improves visibility to reduce injury risk.
Clean, Dry Crawl Space
Crawl space encapsulation prevents the water and dirt from a dirt floor crawl space from affecting the rest of the home.
