John's Waterproofing Case Studies: CleanSpace Transforms Crawl Space in Cascade Locks, Oregon

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018 by Kayla Cree

Challenge

A homeowner in Cascade Locks had begun noticing a few things about his home. Such as the floors were always really cold and his heating costs were very high. There also seemed to be a bit of a draft throughout the home along with a musty odor. He didn't know what would be the easiest way to fix all of these problems at once but he did think that it might be something to do with his crawl space that might be contributing to these issues, so he called our office.

Solution

There are a lot of negative effects of having a dirt crawl space. These include odors and drafts upstairs, cold floors and higher heating costs like this homeowner was experiencing. Other issues caused by having a dirt crawl space is high humidity and condensation, mold and wood rot, insects and other critters and an overall unhealthy and uncomfortable living space. The solution to all of that is CleanSpace encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a heavy, thick liner with seven layers and a 25-year warranty against rips and tears. It's installed on the floor and walls of the crawl space, preventing any moisture or water vapor from coming into the crawl space. The bright white finish brightens the crawl space and allows the homeowner to easily see that the crawl space is free of mold, insects, and dirt. With the low humidity, there's no new mold growth. It keeps the floors warmer and the heating costs down. With CleanSpace now installed in the crawl space, this homeowner can now enjoy his healthier and more comfortable home.
