Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Uneven Floors in New Harmony, IN
A home in New Harmony, IN, had wooden floors that were starting to become uneven. The homeowner reached out to us, in hopes that we would have the best solution for her home. The flooring was uneven due to the humidity and moisture present in the crawl space. The homeowner was interested in encapsulating her crawl space when she heard about CleanSpace.
Home encapsulation is a rewarding process to witness. A drainage matting is first laid out across the floor of the crawl space. A dimpled polyethylene membrane under the CleanSpace liner allows water to flow to a sump in a crawl space. CleanSpace is then laid on top and sealed to exclude outdoor air from disrupting the environment again. Once the project was completed, the homeowner peered inside her crawl space and was amazed by the transformation!
Pink insulation is no longer useful once it is exposed to moisture. It will begin to fall apart.
The moisture and humidity caused mold to thrive!
The EverLast panel will securely tighten the crawl space opening from the outside, to protect the environment inside.
Dimple matting is laid down on the floor before installing the CleanSpace liner. It creates an air space through which water can flow over the concrete floor to the sump.
What a transformation! CleanSpace has sealed the crawl space away from water vapor, preventing water and mold from showing up in the crawl space.
