Homeowner in Branchville, IN had a damp environment in his crawl space underneath his home. Any moisture is bad in a crawl space because not only do insects and critters of all kinds love this type of environment and wet materials, but mold also thrives in it as well. Our client had previously used Healthy Spaces before at a different home so he knew he wanted to give us a call to help him with his unhealthy space.
Our System Design Specialist worked with him to create a plan that he felt comfortable with and would give him peace of mind. Our team installed a complete encapsulation system, along with drainage matting, and crawl space wall insulation.
Because he had a concrete floor with rocks over the top, we installed our CleanSpace drainage matting. This is used when it's difficult to install a drainage system. Installed under our CleanSpace vapor barrier, the matting creates a drainage space and thermal break between CleanSpace and the ground. Next, we installed our SilverGlo Wall Insulation. SilverGlo is infused with graphite, which reflects heat and lower's the material's conductivity. This makes your crawl space and floors above them warmer in the winter and lowers your cost of heating bills. Lastly, our team installed over the top of the drainage matting and SilverGlo our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. Our CleanSpace Encapsulation System completely isolates your home from the earth by sealing it over the floor and walls.

Homeowners in Cloverport, KY called Healthy Spaces in a panic when they noticed water in their basement. They were tired of constantly worrying about what could happen to their home if they weren't home when it rained, so they decided to find a solution.
Design Specialist, Bob Roberts, came to the customers home to help provide the best solution.
In this home, we installed our popular WaterGuard system with a new sump pump. The WaterGuard system is installed along the perimeter of the basement and has a special flange to catch wall moisture. If water does happen to come in, it is directed through the WaterGuard into the SuperSump, then removed far from the basement through the discharge line.
Homeowner Joshua W. thought he had mold growing on his subfloor and moisture in his vents. He grew concerned that the quality of air would be affecting his family, so he called Healthy Spaces for a free estimate and Design Specialist, Bob Roberts, came out and inspected the home.
For starters, we eliminated, treated, and cleaned up all the mold growing in the damp crawl space. The after photo shows the amazing difference that the mold remediation team at Healthy Spaces created. They treated the affected area with a chemical to kill the mold, then thoroughly scrubbed every surface to remove the spores and dead mold. After removing the debris they were able to repair any damage from the mold in the subfloor. We installed the CleanSpace vapor barrier system along with SilverGlo insulation panels in the crawl space to make sure it stays protected. Lastly, we installed vent covers and a new SmartSump with an alarm so that the crawl space would stay dry.
