During our initial visit, we assessed the crawl space to see what was causing their water issues.
Under the home, there was water, rodents, mold, and wood rot.
The homeowners indicated that air quality and the health of the home were important to them. They were dealing with respiratory issues, and wanted safe, controlled environment.
Due to the moisture, a post supporting the spiral staircase was starting to rot.
Their existing sump pump left them high and (not-so) dry and water was accumulating in the crawl space.
First, we came and cleaned out the crawl space. David Nush led the Production crew for this project.
We dug drainage trenches to install 278 feet of piping along the perimeter of the wall and footing.
We encapsulated the crawl space in 1540 square feet of CleanSpace.
Using CleanSpace, we seal, tape, and caulk all edges and penetrations. Our encapsulation system protects the home from mold, moisture, and high humidity.
CleanSpace is a 20mil material reinforced with cord to resist punctures and tears.
We installed 624 square feet of our Foamax Wall System. Foamax is waterproof and helps insulate this taller than average crawl space.
To replace the old pump that was flooding and open, we installed our TripleSafe sump pump system. With three pumps in one airtight basket, flooding is a thing of the past. It also has a battery backup to ensure the system continues working even during a power failure.
Peter & Karla from Mount Vernon recently moved into their home. Their crawl space had an existing pump, but still were noticing puddles of standing water. Their crawl space also needed some cleaning out due to rodent activity. At first, they were looking at having spray foam on the subfloor. Design Specialist, Jean-Paul Holcomb explained encapsulation how it would provide better results. They got excited because air quality is a huge issue for them as Karla was dealing with respiratory issues. Once we determined a solution, we scheduled the installation.
