The crawl space underneath the house is not in a very healthy state. Along with evidence of a high moisture content, the insulation is failing, and there is mold beginning to grow in the crawl space.
As humidity levels rise in the crawl space, moisture permeates on all the surfaces, leading to serious problems in the home.
The fiberglass in the crawl space is failing. This could be caused by a number of things, but in this case, it's due to moisture. When you mix moisture and insulation together, it's the perfect breeding ground for mold to thrive in.
Here you can see that we've removed all of the old plastic and insulation. And have begun performing mold remediation.
Here you can see that we already installed the SilverGlo and have installed CleanSpace on the floor.
Here is a finished view of the crawl space after it was encapsulated with CleanSpace.
The CleanSpace liner has dramatically improved the appearance and health of the crawl space. Not only is the area brighter, but the thick and durable CleanSpace liner also can double as an extra storage space.
The crawl space was encapsulated with CleanSpace liner and insulated with SilverGlo insulation panels on the walls. With the addition of SilverGlo, the home will be energy-efficient and healthier.
After reading all the reviews online about Healthy Spaces, the owners were motivated to contact us for further information. They met with Damon Cheatham who performed a thorough inspection of their crawl space. Damon confirmed that this space under their house was very unhealthy and they were breathing it throughout their home.
We restored their crawl space by first removing any failing insulation, debris, and other nuisances. Then we performed mold remediation by cleaning the affected area, which will restore the structural surfaces in the crawl space completely.
Then they placed SilverGlo insulation panels on the walls. SilverGlo provides a built-in radiant heat barrier surface. The crawl space was then encapsulated with CleanSpace, a thick durable liner. This liner completely seals the crawl space from the earth, preventing water vapor and humidity from passing through. And also has a mold-resistant additive that will never support mildew or mold growth on its surface. A SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier was installed to help control humidity and reduce odors.
All of these reliable products work together to create a healthier and safer living environment for these homeowners.
