Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Water Vapor in the Crawl Space in Owensville, IN
When moisture leaks into a crawl space, it can create a humid environment and it will cling to any organic materials, making them soft. This scenario is exactly what happened to a crawl space in Owensville, IN. A homeowner had creaking floors, that were caused by water vapor. Damp wood rots, which enables mold to grow on it. The homeowner wanted to waterproof his crawl space before the problem worsened anymore.
A drainage matting was laid throughout the space for the CleanSpace to lay on top of. A drainage mat is helpful for water that comes in through the dirt ground to be carried to the sump pump. The CleanSpace is then laid on top of the drainage matting, sealing the floor and walls away from the outdoor air. To pump water out of the crawl space, that does not enter into the spaces in front of the ground, the SmartSump pump takes care of the problem! To create a constant airflow to prevent humidity, the SaniDry Sedona is hooked up. This dehumidifier disposes of water automatically by carrying any water vapor to the SmartSump. The homeowner was pleased to know that their home and health are protected.
