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.

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.
Karleen H. from Cannelton, IN had recently bought a new home. The Inspector didn't find any mold, but after moving in, the crawl space smelled very musty. They hadn't been down there since they moved in but knew that they needed to turn this job over to the professionals. They gave Healthy Spaces a call and we went out to do a free no-obligation inspection.
System Design Specialist, Damon Cheatham, inspected the home and proposed a solution. First, the mold filled vapor barrier was pulled up by our install crew. Not only that, but the barrier itself has pulled away from the walls and wrinkled up to the point that it is not functional. From there, we installed CleanSpace. Our CleanSpace encapsulation system is lined in crawl spaces to permanently separate your home from the ground. This is part of a healthy crawl space and a healthy home. The new SmartSump sump pump is used for your crawl space drainage system. It is designed just for crawl spaces because the liner and lid form a tight seal around the CleanSpace liner.
Karleen is happy with her transformed crawl space and is even happier that the mold smell is gone.
Homeowner in Beaver Dam, KY, was interested in getting an estimate for a new vapor barrier. Having heard from friends and family in Beaver Dam who had work done from us, they decided to give Healthy Spaces a call.
We installed CleanSpace vapor barrier, which is a durable, bright white crawl space liner that installs on the walls and floors, preventing water vapor and humidity from passing by. By keeping their crawl space dry, they're protecting their structure from mold and rot.
Clayton in Boonville, IN was sick and tired of dealing with his crawl space problem. He would get water in his crawl space every time it rained and didn't have a drainage system with a sump pump in his crawl space. Because of the standing water, it eventually led to mold as well, which created a very unhealthy environment.
After seeing our TV commercial, he gave the crawl space repair experts at Healthy Spaces. When it comes to keeping water out of your crawl space, you need a high-quality sump pump system that's designed specifically for crawl spaces. Our team installed our SmartSump Crawl Space sump Pump that comes equipped with a reliable liner, a sump alarm, and an optimal battery backup sump pump. This is exactly what you need to ensure a dry crawl space all the time!
Besides the water, you must remove the water vapor. To accomplish this, our team installed our crawl space vapor barrier, CleanSpace! The CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system completely seals and isolates your house from the earth.

Mary L. from Slaughters, KY was experiencing water in her basement, especially when there was heavy rain. She would have her shop vac ready to clean up all the water. Countless hours were spent worrying about what would happen to her basement if she wasn't there because many important documents, as well as memories, were stored there.
Upon receiving Mary's call for help, Design Specialist, Damon Cheatham was scheduled to do a thorough inspection of her basement. When he arrived, they greeted each other with a smile and the work began. He recommended that a new drainage system be installed to prevent any more leaking. This drainage system would be under the concrete, so it wouldn't be noticeable. It runs straight to the new TripleSafe sump pump that was also installed. The CleanSpace vapor barrier on the walls helps protect and keep the space dry, as well as prevent mold growth.
The owners of this home in Sebree, Kentucky came to Healthy Spaces with the complaint that their living room smelled musty, old, and constantly dirty. Clearly, this is not the most pleasant smell to have in your home. The living room was built over a basement used for storing old belongings they no longer used, which was the culprit of the smell. Design Specialist, Damon Cheatham, was sent to perform an inspection and discuss options with the homeowners.
In the ceiling of this basement, there was mold growth due to moisture in the space. Mold thrives in dark, moist environments where organic materials are present. This is the reason why basements and crawl spaces are perfect places for mold to grow. In this basement, we did a mold remediation treatment so the family had a clean and safe space below them.
Mold is one of a homeowner's worst fears because it damages property, causes illness, makes a basement smell like a basement, and too often makes the whole house smell like the basement. If you have a mold problem caused by water or moisture in your basement or crawl space, Healthy Spaces offers proven waterproofing, moisture control, and mold treatment solutions.

Tim G. from Madisonville called knew there was water in his crawl space but always ignored it. The water especially gathered around the perimeter of the crawl space and was always puddled. Along with the water came mold. Tim knew the air he was breathing wasn't healthy so he decided to give us a call, and we were so glad he did.
Our design specialist Bob Roberts came out to do a free inspection and decided that Tim's crawl space would need mold remediation, a new sump pump, and CleanSpace installed. Our crew first started with remediating all of the mold growing in the crawl space. The SmartSump will be an exit line for the water that gets into the crawl space. The CleanSpace encapsulation product is a 20mm white thick plastic lining that entirely seals off the crawl space from the harsh elements below. It keeps mold and moisture from growing on it as well and especially helps in hot summer months.
Contractor in Owensville, IN was working with the owner of a commercial building. After doing an inspection of the crawl space, he saw some major concerns that were outside his scope of work. He called Healthy Spaces to get set up for a free inspection, together they all devised a plan to ensure the crawl space problems were fixed permanently!
In the before photo, you can actually see where one of the concrete columns is leaning to the right. Additional problems we found, the crawl space jacks had no support, with mainly concrete blocks and pieces of wood "shimmied" in between the open gaps. Our foundation installers first needed to replace some of the damaged supplemental beam and joist repair before installing 8 SmartJacks in the crawl space. SmartJacks are used to permanently stabilize and level the girders and floor joists in a crawl space. They do not replace the existing columns and piers but add strength and stability to what is there.
If you'd like a permanent solution for your crawl space issues or any other foundation problem, we're ready to help you!
Before Healthy Spaces came out to fix this Crofton, KY crawl space, there was a surplus of mold growing on every surface in their crawl space. They had been in their home several years but put the thought of a moldy crawl space in the back of their minds. What they didn't know was that a mold problem only grows bigger and bigger the longer you leave it alone. Ultimately, the mold will end up ruining your home, your health and your family's well being.
Design Specialist, Damon Cheatham, came out to the home to offer solutions to their problems. Here you can see in the before and after photo that our team worked to remove all the debris and organic material from the crawl space. With that out of the way, they could start the mold removal process. The first step is to seal off openings to prevent cross-contamination and then remove airborne contaminants by using air scrubbers. Next, we used a HEPA vacuum to remove any loose contaminants. And lastly, we applied a solution that foams on contact, then it penetrates the soil load which will leave a contaminate free surface.
The after photo shows the amazing difference that the mold remediation team at Healthy Spaces created.
Homeowner Jennifer M. from Mt. Vernon Indiana knew that her crawl space needed a makeover. This crawl space was pretty typical for the area: dirt floor, occasional flooding, open vents and doorways, and uninsulated walls. All these factors had contributed to another factor -- mold.
This crawl space needed a total facelift and System Design Specialist, Bob Roberts, made sure it became a reality. Bob completed a thorough inspection of Jennifer's crawl space, and then they worked together to create a plan that they agreed on.
Our crew first started with remediating all of the mold growing in the crawl space. From there, the crawl space will then be encapsulated. The CleanSpace encapsulation product is a 20mm white thick plastic lining that entirely seals off the crawl space from the harsh elements below. It keeps mold and moisture from growing on it as well and especially helps in hot summer months, which is the exact opposite of what her crawl space was before. Jennifer's home and crawl space is finally healthy and is a great place for extra storage.
This Fairfield, IL family used their basement as storage for decorations, exercise equipment, and old keepsakes. They started to experience water intrusion a couple of years ago, but they didn't think it was anything to worry about, but they learned they were wrong. The crack that once started small had grown, allowing a decent amount of water to get into the basement every time it rained and stormed. The homeowners were tired of worrying about the "what if's" and gave us a call.
Design Specialist, Damon Cheatham, was sent to the home to do a thorough inspection. After he was finished, he concluded that the basement would need a few upgrades to keep it dry. First, a WaterGuard system was installed. This system is buried into the perimeter of the basement and covered with concrete so you can't see it. The water that is caught from the WaterGuard goes directly to the port, and it drained into the new TripleSafe sump pump and released through the discharge line. They decided to install longer discharge lines to keep the water flowing away from the home. Lastly, they installed a CleanSpace wall barrier acts as a barrier to keep mold and moisture out of the basement.
