Here is a customer in Portland, Oregon called stating that his sump pump wasn't working or pumping out water. When our team went out to look they found this homemade sump pump that definitely was not working and there was standing water and much in the crawl space. The Foreman went over all of the issues and the possible fixes with the customer and they decided that a full encapsulation was the best choice. Customer now has a clean, dry crawl space that is virtually maintenance-free while also helping cut costs on his energy consumption.
This customer in Hood River, Oregon had moisture and rodent activity in his crawl space. One major reason is there was no vent cover to the outside access which made it an easy place for animals and water to get in. Here are good pictures of how important it is to have well working vent covers.
This customer had been living in her new home for a few months before they found a door in one of the closets in their finished basement. When she opened the door she had found an unfinished portion of the basement that had visible standing water and damaged vapor barrier. Our crew installed a drainage system and encapsulated the unfinished space with our CleanSpace vapor barrier that is 20 mils thick and is tear resistant. She now had a dry space and even more storage without a worry of things getting ruined.
This homeowner was sick of having an ugly basement and was looking to live up their space. They installed a Waterguard system to ensure that no water would come in, and then Bright Wall panels to finish the space.
This before and after shows that process of applying Spray Foam insulation to the walls of the crawlspace after Cleanspace is installed. Insulation is not needed on the sub-floor because the Spray foam on the walls is working with the cleanspace to encapsulate, waterproof, and insulate. They work better together than apart! Spray Foam is closed-celled so it will not allow water to collect or stick to it.
