Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Sealing the Crawl Space in Powderly, KY
When one problem occurs, another follows. This can be relatable if you have ever dealt with a crawl space issue. A homeowner in Powderly, Kentucky wanted a FREE inspection with Healthy Spaces because mold was spotted in the crawl space. During the inspection, there was standing water on the floor of the crawl space and the air was humid, which was the main culprit of the mold formation. Not only did the crawl space need to be treated for mold, but encapsulated to prevent the problem from happening again.
The first step in creating a healthy space for the home was to treat all mold and future mold spots from spreading. Next, drainage matting is laid across the floor to allow water to flow toward the new SmartSump. The SmartSump will pump the water out of the crawl space and away from the home. A popular product that dramatically transforms the space, CleanSpace, is secured on the walls and floor. It protects the vapor barrier. The homeowner was pleased with the final results, which made us happier!
