Home inspector called due to water being found in crawlspace
The homeowner was having an inspection done. The inspector suggested they get their crawlspace sealed due to the fiberglass insulation falling to bits.
Customer called with a crawlspace issue and it appeared to be getting wet. Our crew installed a cleanspace system with a smart sump and SaniDry Sedona.
This basement was used as nothing more than a tool storage area due to the musty smell and the mold growing on the walls. Our crews installed a water guard system and treated the mold prior to installing our Bright Wall panels to finish the space.
The customer's grandkids were having allergen issues when coming over to visit. We did a full encapsulation of the crawl space and cleaned up all traces of mold. Leaving the customer with a healthier and allergen-free crawl space.
Customer called for water coming through their concrete walls and the crawlspace needs vapor barrier.
Water coming through the basement walls and crawlspace. Which is causing a very musty smell to travel into the rest of the home. So we encapsulated the crawl space and isolated the piers to prevent any caving in of the baseboards.
The customer was having water leaking into the basement through the walls. Which was creating mold growth along the walls? We cleaned the mold and installed BrightWall paneling to give the room a finished look. Along with WaterGuard to discharge the water out of the basement completely.
The low point was in their driveway, and they wanted something to help prevent it from going into their home. The previous owner had a trench drain installed, but it wasn't deep enough, so the water was flooding out of the drain. So we pulled out the old one and dug it out so it would be 12in x 12in. Giving the water enough space to drain without causing any damage to the garage or home.
Customer called about standing water in their crawlspace and replacing the vapor barrier. We installed a TripleSafe sump and replaced the vapor barrier.
Customer wanted his crawlspace Encapsulated and wanted to learn more of what it entailed.
We had a customer in Sherwood, Oregon with concerns about standing water and rotting posts in their crawlspace. As you can see, our company gladly went out there and took care of this for her. Did some repairs to rotting posts and encapsulated the crawl space ensuring that our customer no longer has to worry about the health of the underneath of her house.
This crawlspace was unusable. After going in and removing all of the debris, our crew went in and installed Terra Block for thermal insulation and then applied our patented CleanSpace, spray foam, Sanidry sump pump and new drainage lines to create a total clean space environment that can now be used for year.
Here is a wet, soggy crawl space. You can tell by the insulation sagging with moisture and see the evidence of standing water. We went in and cleaned up the space and did a full encapsulation using CleanSpace for the vapor barrier and using Smart Jacks for post stability. Our customer no longer has to worry about moisture or damage being caused in his crawl space.
This wet and nasty crawlspace was not only unsightly but also moving mold spores into the home above. Our crew came out and installed a full encapsulation system. Now the home's foundation is secure and the air coming into the home from the crawlspace is dry and healthy.
