Damaged and Moldy Insulation
This old insulation was moldy and had a terrible mildew smell. It had to be removed.
Taking a Look
A 3 Pros team member checks out the situation before starting the removal process.
What's That Smell?
Underneath the stairs is where the mildew smell was the worst. The production crew removed all of this contaminated insulation and properly disposed of it.
Spray Foam and Dimple Matting.
Here we can see that the rim joists have been spray foamed. This stops air and moisture leaks. On the floor, dimple matting has been installed.
This matting has a unique raised dimple shape that allows water to flow through it.
CleanSpace Liner Installed
CleanSpace is a super durable 20 mil thick vapor barrier.
Foamax Installed on the Walls
Foamax is an advanced foam insulation panel designed with a white foil finish on the front and a foil vapor barrier on the back. Foamax makes a big difference in the temperature of the walls.
No More Mold and Mildew!
Now the space underneath the staircase is mold and mildew free. No more smelly stairs.
Clean and Healthy.
Now this crawl space is bright, clean, and healthy. This customer now has a more comfortable home and lower utility costs. Job well done.
