This Hanson, KY family was experiencing problems with their crawlspace. The crawlspace had very low clearance and it made it hard to get in to on a regular basis. It was flooding and damp often. It was smelly and they were concerned about mold issues. Upon arriving at the home, Damon Cheatham was able to see the mold growth clearly on the wooden subfloor and along the HVAC and plumbing systems. The thin, clear vapor barrier was shredded and there were mouse droppings present. He noted that there was water damage along the foundation walls and that the small window in one of the cellar type areas was leaking.
Damon recommended a full mold remediation. After that, he recommended a SilverGlo insulation application covered with CleanSpace engineered film. The crawlspace window needed to be replaced with a vinyl window, and a new sump pump system installed. The homeowners elected to have the entire prescribed system installed as well as a dehumidifier installed to keep the crawlspace conditioned and further inhibit mold growth.
The Healthy Spaces team transformed the crawlspace in less than a week into a beautiful and healthy crawlspace that will stay that way for years to come!
