Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Moisture Barrier in Princeton, IN
A damp crawl space can cause fiberglass floor insulation to droop down or fall, making it useless for insulating the home. The best solution would be to find an energy-efficient way to insulate the home, which is what a homeowner in Princeton, Indiana, sought Healthy Space for. Mold loves to thrive in conditions of 70-99 percent humidity with temperatures between 32- 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The homeowner was interested in encapsulation for an energy-efficient and mold-free crawl space.
To begin the healthy home process, all mold was scrubbed and treated. Drainage matting was put on the floor to direct water flow to the SmartSump pump that is installed. CleanSpace is then secured on top of the drainage matting and the walls. This will prevent outdoor air from escaping in. Once CleanSpace is finished, it transformed the space, giving the homeowner peace of mind!
