Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Crawl Space Conditioning
This homeowner was having issues with humidity and the floors that were very cold in the winter. The problem was in the crawl space - it was a dirt floor crawl space with no insulation, so air was not only escaping through the crawl space, but cold or hot, humid air was getting in.
We first had to remove some badly damaged remains of insulation from the ceiling of the crawl space. We installed our CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system, but before that we applied MoldX2 botanical spray to treat the space for organic growth. Then we laid down drainage matting and Terra Block floor insulation. We applied spray foam insulation to the walls of the crawl space and sealed the rim joists. Now this crawl space is a conditioned space that will keep the floors and rooms above it comfortable!
