Dirt crawlspaces are the most common type of below grade space in Jasper, IN. Most homes are built on them due to the high groundwater levels in the area. Unfortunately, dirt crawlspaces can become a big mess when they flood. All that dirt becomes a slippy, muddy mess and that moisture gets sucked up into your home due to the laws of air pressure. In order to make a home safer for asthmatics and allergy sufferers, it is recommended to install a crawlspace encapsulation system that decreases the relative humidity in a crawlspace, reducing mold growth, and creating a space that will be conditioned with the rest of the home.
The most effective crawlspace encapsulation system is called CleanSpace. CleanSpace is an engineered film that is guaranteed for 25 years against rips, tears, and water on top of the liner. How can a guarantee like this offered? Healthy Spaces only employs the best industry technicians and then has them factory trained and certified by Basement Systems in proper installation techniques. It doesn't stop there, either, our technicians are provided with continuous training and update opportunities through our relationship with Basement Systems.
In fact, what you see in these pictures is a technique that was perfected by our technicians during their CleanSpace installation training course. The only way to create a truly encapsulated crawlspace to make sure that the support pillars, walls, floor, and vents are all properly covered. When CleanSpace is installed, the first step is to properly wrap all support pillars and then marry that wrapping with the CleanSpace floor. By providing complete isolation from the dirt surrounding the crawlspace, our technicans seal off the home from all that groundwater intrusion. Then, the HVAC system works more efficiently to condition the home, even the crawlspace!
