Another View Of The Crawl Space
Here is another view of the crawl space that would need to be cleaned out.
Step 2: Remediate The Mold
Once all the vapor barrier was removed from the crawl space, our mold remediation team came in to treat all the affected areas.

Here is Jon, our Co-Lead Foreman of our mold crew, removing all the mold spores to make it a healthier space!
Drainage Matting Installed in Crawl Space
A dimpled polyethylene membrane installed under our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier allows water to flow to a sump in a crawl space that already has a concrete floor.
Vapor Barrier Similar to Pool Liner Installed in Crawl Space Central City, KY
After we installed drainage matting throughout the crawl space, our team began installing our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. It's made of a 20 mil thick plastic, similar to a pool liner that completely seals off your home from the earth.
Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Prevents Mold Growth
Another benefit to the CleanSpace vapor barrier is that it has an antimicrobial additive manufactured in the material, which prevents mold growth on the liner.
Crawl Space Sump Pump Central City, KY
A high-quality sump system in your crawl space is essential and must include the following: perforated sump liner, reliable pump, alarm system, pump stand, check valve, and an airtight lid with a floor drain. Having an alarm system makes all the difference in knowing if your crawl space has flooded or is staying dry.
Crawl Space Dehumidification
Because our crawl space sucks air in through the tiniest of spaces, we still may have some condensation or humidity. A dehumidifier solves this problem. Our SaniDry Sedona is a high-capacity, high-efficiency dehumidification system, with air filtration. You'll also have to never empty any buckets with our dehumidifier because it automatically drains into the SmartSump sump pump.
Step 1: Remove All Pre-Existing Vapor Barrier
Before any of our crews could begin working, they first need to clean the crawl space out by removing all of the vapor barriers currently there.
CleanSpace Brightens Your Crawl Space
CleanSpace is bright white, which dramatically transforms your crawl space from the nasty pit it was to the one you wouldn't hesitate to slide around in.
Benefits of Encapsulating Your Crawl Space Central City, KY
There are many benefits to encapsulating your crawl space. Some of them of those benefits are: -Lower energy bills -Protects your health -Keeps critters away -Protects structural integrity -Provides storage area -Increases property value
Freezing Discharge Lines
During the wintertime, we have to worry about the discharge line becomes blocked by snow or ice. If the water can't get out of the pipe due to the blockage, the whole pipe fills with water and freezes. Now your sump pump will be running but cannot get the water out. This can not only cause your crawl space to flood but it can also burn out the motor. The solution to preventing a nightmare is our IceGuard system. It's designed with holes that automatically eject the water away from your home in the event that the pipe freezes.
