Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Water Puddles in Crawl Space in Sebree, KY
A family reached out to us from Sebree, KY, exclaiming that their crawl space was remaining damp and after heavy rain, there was standing water present on the ground of the crawl space. The family needed the crawl space to be sealed and treated in hopes to create a dry space. Standing water in the crawl space was an apparent issue that needed to be taken care of, such as the access well openings that were not closed properly. If access well openings are not properly sealed, water and outside air can seep through, damaging the home's health.
The water leakage culprit was poorly tightened and sealed access wells that were located outside of the crawl space. The access wells were repaired by putting new covers to keep out any water or outside air. CleanSpace, which is a 20 mil, bright white liner, that is laid across the crawl space floor to provide a vapor barrier for the space. The liner prevents air and water from entering the atmosphere of the crawl space, which will resolve the standing water issue. A SmartSump pump and SaniDry Sedona are installed to pump water out of the crawl space and to create a continuous dry air flow. With a dry crawl space, the family is guaranteed to have a healthy home without unsafe risks.
Standing water was visible in this crawl space, and would increase in levels when there was a hard rain pour.
Dimple matting is installed before CleanSpace. It provides extra support and is able to hold more water underneath CleanSpace, and direct it to the sump pump.
All openings are closed off to make sure that water and outside air is not bale to enter.
CleanSpace is laid throughout the crawl space in order to seal off the crawl space effectively.
