Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Leaky Crawl Space in Freeland, Washington
This Freeland homeowner contacted us to come out and perform a free inspection and estimate within a week of her moving in to her home. Her foundation posts were rotted and there were pools of standing water spread about her crawl space.
To prevent standing water, we installed drainage trenching along the interior perimeter of the foundation walls. The drainage will direct the captured ground water to the TripleSafe Sump Pump we added. The TripleSafe is equipped with three pumps, including the UltraSump, a battery back-up system that will automatically activate in the event of a power outage or other pump failure.
The crawl space was then encapsulated with CleanSpace, a highly durable vapor barrier that greatly reduces moisture and humidity levels. CleanSpace Vent Covers and an EverLast Crawl Space door were added to complete the encapsulation. Both incorporate weather stripping for an airtight seal and are made from completely inorganic materials that will not rust or grow mold. Finally, we installed a SaniDry CX Dehumidifier to give the homeowner ultimate control over the moisture levels in her crawl space.
Nasty Crawl Space
This crawl space is causing the homeowner a number of problems.
This vapor barrier had become more like a pool liner for the crawl space.
Dirt and mud covered the vapor barrier in most palces.
Preexisting Crawl Space Access
This door was allowing in outside air creating high levels of humidity in the space.
EverLast Crawl Space Door
The EverLast Crawl Space Door is airtight and is made from completely inorganic materials that won't ever rust, grow mold or mildew.
Secure Vapor Barrier
We secure CleanSpace directly to the foundation walls so keep the vapor barrier in place. Because CleanSpace is so durable, it won't tear down or shift around.
We make sure to cover every surface with CleanSpace to best prevent against moisture vapor and high humidity levels.
The SaniDry CX's small profile makes it the perfect dehumidifier for a crawl space. Also, because it is automatic, the homeowner won't ever have to worry about emptying the water reservoir.
