Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Crawl Space Insulation in Island, KY
In Island, KY, a water leak occurred in a homeowner's crawl space, causing wetness, and recently noticed a smell traveling up to the main floor. Insulation had begun to fall under the house. Once insulation, also known as fiberglass floor insulation has been exposed to moisture, it becomes useless to the home. After fiberglass insulation has been exposed to moisture, it will become a thriving home for mold.
All fiberglass insulation is removed from the crawl space before installing a new, efficient system. Dimple polyethylene membrane drainage matting is laid across the floor to allow water to flow toward the SmartSump pump that was put in. Next, CleanSpace is secured on the floor and sides of the space. CleanSpace is a 20 mil plastic liner that has an antimicrobial additive manufactured into the material, the homeowner loved the transformation and value that it brought to his home!
