Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Wet Crawl Space in Lewisport, KY
Veronica T. of Lewisport, KY wanted to protect her crawl space from further water damage and mold. She had owned her home for about a year and every time it would rain heavily, there would be standing water in her crawl space. She knew this couldn't be good for her home, so she gave Healthy Spaces a call.
She met with System Design Specialist, Auston Bruder, from Healthy Spaces. Auston inspected the home and designed the best, long-lasting solution for her crawlspace problems. First, the mold would need to be remediated with the help of our mold crew. Then, a CleanSpace barrier, TripleSafe sump pump, and SaniDry Dehumidifier would need to be installed.
A few positives about CleanSpace is it controls mold & rot, save money on utilities, and keeps pests and insects out. The SaniDry Sedona offers giant performance in a small package. It's the world's most efficient, high-performance dehumidifier, without a bulky heat exchange core. The Sedona easily fits in small crawl spaces, yet has a powerful blower to effectively dry large crawl spaces.
