Mold and Mice Eliminated from East Jordan, MI Crawl Space
Sharon and Kevin approached us at a home show with a story that's all too familiar - their floors were cold. This is, of course, because their crawl space was not properly insulated and the cold air from the dirt floor was affecting the house above it.
Upon inspecting the crawl space, we also discovered mold (another common side effect of dirt floor crawl spaces, especially when delicious-to-mold fiberglass insulation is present) and...mice. Gross.
Sharon and Kevin wanted to prevent moisture in the crawl space, control mold odors, get rid of the mice, and save energy. Luckily, we can help with all of that!
We installed our ultimate energy savings package, including the CleanSpace vapor barrier with drainage matting and a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. Now the basement will be dry and mold/critter free, and the house above will be more comfortable and energy efficient.
IceGuard vs. Mother Nature in East Jordan, MI
Discharge lines are one of the more commonly overlooked aspects of our waterproofing projects. After adding in a sump pump or a drainage system, that water must be carried somewhere. The obvious preference is that the water is deposited so far away it can never reach your home again, but that’s not always possible.
After one of our Ayers teams completed a crawlspace encapsulation in East Jordan, they had to take the steps to prevent flooding from happening again. The flood occurred because there was ground water close enough to the crawlspace to leak in. Our discharge lines and lawnscape outlet focus on making sure that the same water doesn’t return. The biggest to those lines will be freezing temperatures (as seen in the before picture). If the line were to freeze over, water that was exiting the system would be forced back to the crawl space sump pump because of clogging. That’s why the team installed an IceGuard shield. The shield is an alternative escape route in the event that the line freezes. The IceGuard shield points away from the foundation to prevent water from leaking back in. Obviously our hope is that the water will exit at the safe distance of the lawnscape outlet, but when temperatures freeze our only focus is getting the water out.
Maybe one-day snow and ice won’t be a problem for us Midwesterners, but until then we’re glad that we’ve got IceGuard.
East Jordan, MI Crawl Space Installation
Frank has crawl space in his home that was exposed to the elements by an uncovered vent. The vent allowed moisture and other debris in his crawlspace, which led to mold and other problems. There was also a tarp on the floor of the space being used a vapor barrier, retailers often falsely advertise basic tarps as vapor barriers when in reality they do nothing.
Our team fixed Frank's problems with multiple CleanSpace solutions. First we used a dehumdifier to get rid of all the moisture. Then we installed CleanSpace vent covers to prevent anything else from coming into the crawl space, CleanSpace drainage matting to help flow any moisture to the Smart Drain that was also installed.
