Job Stories From Blue River, OR
Finding A Lasting Crawl Space Insulation - Blue River, OR

This vacation home had crawl space insulation issues. With the owners being away from the cabin for weeks at a time, they often dealt with critters getting into the crawl space and pulling the fiberglass insulation down. They would reattach it, place our traps and then deal with the same issue over and over. Ready for something that would provide an ongoing insulation solution, they turned to John's Waterproofing to learn more about encapsulation. After learning more about it, hearing the benefits and the warranties that the products have, they chose to move forward. 

To begin our installation crew cleaned out the crawl space, this involved pulling out the old vapor barrier, general debris, and the damaged fiberglass. We then installed a drainage system on the interior perimeter to collect ground water and guide it to the lowest point where a TripleSafe sump pump will direct it out and away from the foundation. TerraBlock insulation was laid over the dirt floor, and the vents were sealed shut. We then wrapped the space with CleanSpace, a 20 Mil vapor barrier that deters critters with its woven fibers. A SaniDry dehumifier was installed and spray foam along the foundation walls. The space is now set up to stay insulated and protect this homes crawl space. 


Poorly Insulated Crawlspace in Blue River, OR

This homes crawlspace had falling fiberglass insulation, leading to the homes heating and cooling costs rising. To regain their homes temperature regulation, they would need to address this space. While searching for a solution, they read about encapsulation. To learn more about it, they called up John's Waterproofing to schedule their free inspection. Afterwards, they were eager to get their project scheduled!

To begin on this project, we had to clean out the space. This involved pulling out all of the old fiberglass insulation, the old 6 Mil vapor barrier, and the general debris that had accumulated. We then dug a trench along the interior perimeter and installed a perforated pipe in a silt sock. This will collect any water and grade it to the lowest spot of the crawlspace where a SuperSump Plus has been installed to pump the water away from the home. We then insulated the dirt floor with TerraBlock and sealed the space with CleanSpace. This goes under each wooden post, attaches along the foundation walls and seals into place, also sealing off the vents. Spray foam insulation is applied to the foundation walls, and a SaniDry Dehumidifier was installed. As a final step a new EverLast door was installed for the exterior entrance. The homeowners say their house feels warmer already and look forward to saving on their heating and cooling costs!


Musty Smell in Newly Purchased House - Blue River, OR

When these new homeowners had gone through the buying process, it had been dry outside. After moving in, heavy rains hit, and afterwards they noted a musty smell throughout the home. While nothing off had been reported from the inspections, they knew this odor wasn't ideal. They called up Johns Waterproofing and had a full inspection done. Under the home, mold spores were found, once damp, these let off an odor, to address this and keep their new home dry and healthy they opted for a full encapsulation. 

To begin our crew pulled out the vapor barrier that was present, revealing mold spores that had been covered up during the homes purchase, we treated with Mold X as needed. We then installed an UltraSump Plus in the crawlspaces low spot, this will keep any groundwater present moving along well away from the home. We then laid down TerraBlock insulation and CleanSpace. This 20 Mil vapor barrier has a woven fiber, and is backed with a 25 year warranty against rips and tears. A SaniDry dehumidifier was installed and spray foam applied to the foundation walls. 

Daylight Basement with Water Intrusion - Blue River, OR

Daylight basements can be a wonderful opportunity to add a finished space to your home.  These new homeowners saw their new basement as a huge opportunity. After doing research they learned that Waterproofing before finishing was the best option to protect their investment. After asking their friend in home construction they were sent to John's Waterproofing. 

To prepare the home our crew began by installing a perimeter drainage system.  This meant digging a trench along the interior and installing WaterGuard in a bed of gravel.  This will collect water and grade it to a newly installed TripleSafe sump pump, which then pushed the water out and away from the home to a LawnScape outlet. The basement walls were then insulated and waterproofed with ThermalDry radiant wall barrier. As a final step we installed a SaniDry dehumidifier, this home will now be ready to be finished and utilized by the new homeowners when they are ready.  

Nasty Odor in Crawlspace - Blue River, OR

Musty smells in the home can be problematic. The homeowners were sniffing around their home to identify the source of the issue, and found the smell was strongest near the duct systems which ran through the crawlspace. The system was working, so they knew the system wasn't faulty. They ended up going under the home and found the smell was mold growing in the old fiberglass insulation that was stuffed against the floorboards and wrapped around the duct systems. The insulation had mold growing, and it was falling in pieces down to the dirt floor. After looking online they called up John's Waterproofing for help. Our design specialist was able to determine that their main issue was high humidity in the space and condensation. 

To address this water issue, our crew began by removing the old insulation and cleaning out the debris from this space. Once it was cleared out our crew began by installing a SuperSump pump in the lowest spot of the space. This collects the groundwater and sends it out and away from the home. Next, TerraBlock insulation was laid over the dirt floor. We then used CleanSpace to isolate each wooden post, anchored along the walls and sealed into place with our special four inch wide waterproof tape. The vents were then sealed up and spray foam was applied along the foundation walls to aid in insulating the space. As a final step we installed a SaniDry dehumidifier to keep the space dry. The smell went away and the homeowners were very happy!

Musty Smell from Crawlspace - Blue River, OR

This homeowner contacted John's Waterproofing because bad smells were coming from his crawlspace and his family was suffering from breathing problems.

Our System Designer showed up at the home and after introducing himself, he got to work right away.  He measured the home and inspected the exterior to look for any signs on the outside that could be contributing to the problem. He found the downspouts in good shape and operating as they should so next was to dive into the crawlspace. The photos showed that there was water intrusion on a regular basis and insulation was falling and mold starting to grow along the posts and beams. That was where the smells and likely the health issues were coming from. The designer suggested CleanSpace encapsulation as it was the ONLY way to get rid of the mold for good.

A few weeks later our experienced Installers came out. All of the debris, old insulation and vapor barrier was removed. MoldX2 cleaner was applied to the wood where mold could be seen and MoldX2 Botanical, an all-natural, thyme-based formula that is antimicrobial, fungicide, cleaner and deodorizer was applied. Next, a perforated pipe drain system was installed around the perimeter, and graded to a TripleSafe Sump system at the low point. TerraBlock, a flexible foam barrier was laid on the dirt floor and the vents were sealed and posts isolated. A CleanSpace barrier was installed, seams were sealed, and it was run up the walls where it was secured in place. A SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed to ensure the humidity was controlled to prevent mold growth and the air was filtered for a healthy home. Lastly, 3" of a single-cell spray foam was applied to the foundation wall to fully insulate the space.

Musty Smell from Crawlspace - Blue River, OR - Photo 1
Newly Purchased Home has a Musty Smell in Blue River, OR

This home was recently purchased, it had passed inspection, but when the new homeowners officially moved in and they noticed an odd musty smell emanating from the crawlspace. Upon further inspection, the new homeowners noticed the old fiberglass was mushy in places and had mold growing inside of it. This is why fiberglass insulation is not made for under a home. 

To solve this issue we removed all of the old insulation and the 6 Mil vapor barrier that had been placed here. We then applied MoldX to a few places where signs of water mold had been starting to appear. We then installed a SmartSump pump to collect groundwater and push it out and away from the home. To add insulation made for crawlspaces we laid TerraBlock over the dirt floor and SilverGlo along the walls. The space was then encased in our CleanSpace vapor barrier. This 20 Mil woven material is inserted under each wooden post, anchored along the walls, and fully secured. We then replaced the vent covers and installed a SaniDry dehumidifier to help keep this space dry and healthy. 

Musty Smell Coming up from the Crawlspace of a Newly Purchased Home - Blue River

These homeowners had purchased their new homes before the rainy season had begun. Upon inspection, the crawlspace had a simple 6 Mil vapor barrier and had appeared dry enough, and had fiberglass insulation tied up to keep the home above warmer. For this reason, there was no evidence for the new homeowners to be concerned. However, once the heavy rains began they quickly noticed a musty smell emanating from their crawlspace. To get help, they called in John's Waterproofing. 

When we examined the crawlspace we learned that the fiberglass insulation was harboring mold. The insulation had been stuffed into the crawlspace joists but there were mold spores growing along the wooden beams behind the fiberglass. This is a common issue we see since fiberglass insulation is not made to be open to the elements as it is in a crawlspace. To fix the issue of this home we removed all of this insulation and the old vapor barrier. We then installed a SmartSump pump to divert groundwater safely away from the home. To help the home have control over their energy bills we laid down a layer of TerraBlock crawlspace insulation to insulate the dirt floor. The foundation walls were insulated with our SilverGlo insulation panels and this was all covered without a CleanSpace vapor barrier that seals under each wooden post, and anchors along each wall to give the crawlspace a truly waterproofed seal. 

New Home Smells Musty in the Crawlspace - Blue River, OR

The new homeowner noticed a musty smell coming from the crawlspace. Worried about what this would entail they went under the home. They noticed that the vapor barrier that was under the home was coming a part in a few places and that there were some water stains around these places. To ensure the home was waterproofed they called John's Waterproofing. 

Our crew came out and removed the old vapor barrier, it had multiple tears we could find and that musty smell was seeping into their home. To control this issue we added in a SmartSump Pump to pump all of the water a safe distance away from the home. We then sealed up the space with our 20 Mil woven CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. This isolates all of the wooden piers and seals against the wall and comes with our warranty that it will be tear and rip resistant for twenty-five years. The home instantly smelt better and the new homeowners were glad their home was fully waterproofed and protected. 

Dry Crawl Space in Blue River, Oregon

We received a call from a homeowner in Blue River, Oregon who was concerned about their wet crawl space. Our crews went out to fix the problem. After clearing out all the debris from the crawl space, they installed CleanSpace encapsulation system on the walls and floor of the crawl space. CleanSpace prevents any moisture or water vapor from coming into the crawl space from the walls or floor. It also helps lower energy costs and keeps out pests. They also installed a SmartSump sump pump. The SmartSump is designed for crawl spaces with a liner and lid that form a tight seal around the CleanSpace liner. It also has a built-in WaterWatch alarm to alert the homeowner of a plumbing leak so that the problem can be fixed before any damage has occurred. Now this homeowner now can have peace of mind knowing his crawl space is dry and healthy for years to come.
