Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Waterproofing in a Crawl Space in Philpot, KY
Would you swim in a crawl space? A crawl space in Philpot, KY consisted of muddy floors that the family wanted to fix for the future health of their home and themselves. If a crawl space is slowly bringing in water inside, then it will eventually look like an unsafe kiddie pool. Water causes the wooden beams to rot and have bouncy floors from the room above. This can be reversed with the right care.
Before CleanSpace is installed throughout the floor, and walls of the crawl space, a drainage matting system that has dimples is laid throughout the floor of the crawl space to control the water from the ground to be released outside. CleanSpace is then installed along with a Sump Pump to pump water out of the crawl space.
Drainage Matting System
This drainage system works well under CleanSpace to create a water flow out of the crawl space.
This insulation might as well be called mold candy since moisture gets caught in it and mold forms.
Water has already entered this space, creating a moist floor.
Don't let the white plastic deceive you! Underneath this plastic is a moist and humid climate that is slowly destroying the health of the home.
CleanSpace improves not only the overall look of the crawl space but the health as well!
