Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Vapor Barrier in Branchville, IN
In Branchville, IN, a couple wanted to convert their unusable crawl space into a space for potential storage and to create a healthy environment for the home. A dirt crawl space not only can create potential disasters at home but the space can not be used constructively. Some homes will have plastic liners on the floor of their crawl space, but this does not make it safe to store important papers or things. The dirt is still being exposed and any tiny cracks in the wall will bring in moisture. The couple wanted to make sure the outside air was closed up before officially using the extra space below the home.
CleanSpace is fitted into a crawl space to completely seal off your home from the earth. It is made up of 20 mils thick plastic liner that has different characteristics of flexibility and is puncture and tear-resistant. It is also bright white, transforming the space into a clean atmosphere. When CleanSpace is installed, it is considered an “indoor space” because of the dry air and spotless look. As soon as the couple saw the crawl space transform into a practical and money-saving space, they were elated!
The crawl space was compromised by the outside air creating a humid environment in the space.
All previous openings are now sealed shut to prevent any weather from entering.
The crawl space is being prepped for CleanSpace. The matting helps direct the water to the sump pump.
The Space's Entry
