For this wet, nasty crawlspace, we disposed of all debris and loose organic materials, as well as the old insulation and vapor barrier.
The existing sump system was inefficient, leaving the crawlspace to fill up with water during heavy rains.
The space under this home prior to our installation was damp and unsuitable for storage.
The moisture in the crawlspace started to deteriorate the loose organic materials under the home, leaving the perfect environment for mold to grow.
The vapor barrier was insufficient for the moisture coming in, instead of preventing water from entering the crawlspace, it held it in place in puddles.
A crawlspace like this is not an uncommon one in the Washington area, but it is a problem that needs to be addressed.
After putting new interior drainage channels, we did an encapsulation of the entire area using CleanSpace, a thick, durable vapor barrier that is sealed and caulked from ground to walls.
No more flooding in this crawlspace! With our TripleSafe sump pump system installed, the homeowners can peacefully enjoy rainy days at home while the TripleSafe can pump up to 6,200 gallons of water per hour if needed.
CleanSpace is not only great as a vapor barrier, but also keeps homes more comfortable. Gone are the days of wasting energy trying to heat a home with an unvented crawlspace. CleanSpace is energy efficient and helps keep floors cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.
This homeowner in Stanwood purchased a home and realized shortly after the crawlspace leaked during the rainy months. He had an existing vapor barrier and sump pump in a bucket that was not installed properly, leaving him with standing water, mold, and muddy black plastic from a flooded crawlspace. Another concern for him was his cold floors, especially approaching the winter months.
