A homeowner in Herndon, VA wanted to reduce the chances of mold and humidity in their crawl space area. This crawl space was vented, like most homes in our area, and the vents let warm humid air in which is cooled by the subterranean crawl space. This causes relative humidity to go way up and condensation to form all over the crawl space surfaces including floor joists and ducts. Then mold can grow, wood will rot, and musty odors can appear. To address this, the 3 Pros team sealed up the vents and a dimpled plastic drainage matting is installed on the floor to create a thermal break. A heavy duty liner, CleanSpace, is installed across the floor over the matting and up the walls. Finally closed cell spray foam is installed on the walls to the top of the rim joist.
This Lincoln, VA homeowner was interested in several comfort solutions for their home. The lower level floors are always cold in the winter, and seemed drafty. Plus, the house was always humid and clammy.
We evaluated the situation and found crawl space encapsulation would be the best solution.
This crawl space in Philomont was damp and had little to no insulation. This was causing floors above it to be abnormally cold and the duct work to freeze. In warm months, the duct work would sweat. After our team performed this incredible crawl space encapsulation, the crawl is now totally dry and encapsulated. The floors above will remain warm in the winter, the duct work will no longer freeze/sweat, and the reduced humidity levels will eliminate the possibility of mold growth.
The crawl space was once moisture and critter ridden. We used our CleanSpace system to transform it to a sealed and dry crawl space.
