Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: A Moldy and Wet Crawl Space in Birdseye, IN
Mold is a common issue with untreated crawl spaces. Whenever the crawl space is not properly sealed, such as in a Birdseye, IN home, mold can irritate homeowners with asthma or allergies. Long exposure to mold can cause asthma in someone who never had it before. There was standing water in the crawl space and humidity lingered in the air. The water needed to be controlled while humidity needed to be banished by creating a dry airflow. The homeowner was ready to remove any mold in the crawl space in hopes of protecting their health. To seal the crawl space away from outdoor air, CleanSpace is laid across the floor. CleanSpace is a 20 mil liner with an antimicrobial additive manufactured into the material, preventing mold growth on the liner. This is odorless and safe. All mold was scrubbed and sprayed away through mold remediation. To prevent water from having the ability to remain on the ground, CleanSpace acts as a protective layer that not only keeps the crawl space protected from water vapor, but it will direct any water flow from the ground, towards the SmartSump. The SmartSump will continue to pump out water away from the home. The SaniDry Sedona is the best solution for dehumidifying the space. It creates a constant dry airflow and will empty any water vapor outdoors.

Mold alert! All mold needed to be scrubbed and sprayed to prevent new mold from forming on the organic material.
