This customer wanted to encapsulate their crawlspace to keep any moisture from getting in, while also making it better looking and easier to work in.
The "before" photo shows a dark and dirty crawlspace, and even worse than that, it was exposed to the elements! The old liner they had did very little to keep water out.
The "after" photo shows what the same area looks like after we've installed our CleanSpace Liner! It is much brighter and easier to work in. But the best part about the CleanSpace Liner is that you don't have to worry about water and condensation building up under your home and causing even more problems!
CleanSpace is such a great product and makes any crawlspace look brand new! This home in Black Mountain had some much-needed help to get it to a healthy and moisture-free crawlspace. This crawlspace was completely encapsulated to prevent moisture from coming in and mold growing.
The "before" picture shows a crawlspace in desperate need of repair. You can see in this picture that several things are out of place and don't provide for a healthy crawlspace. First off, You can see the hanging insulation. This is usually never a good sign, it usually means that enough moisture has gotten into the insulation and pulled it down, making it sag or fall. You can also see the exposed earth, with the old liner pulled back. A lot of moisture in crawlspaces actually come from and are caused by the ground.
The "after" photo shows the difference that CleanSpace can make in a crawlspace. Our crew came in this crawlspace and treated it like Extreme Makeover: Crawlspace Edition. After cleaning up the crawlspace by removing the remaining insulation and moving bricks/rocks, they began to install the CleanSpace Liner. As you can tell, the CleanSpace makes the crawlspace brighter and overall, more appealing. Not only does the crawlspace look better, but it is protected. This homeowner does not have to worry about moisture, water, mold, or anything having to do with his crawlspace ever again! Oh, and the cable guy will love working in a crawlspace like this!
Unfortunately, water soaking and leaking through basement walls is a relatively normal thing, especially in areas that get more rain. This is because the water mainly comes through as groundwater, slowly soaking through your walls, rather than rain just pouring into the basement. This is why a basement drain like Waterguard, is such a helpful product to have installed in your home. This homeowner had this exact problem, water was not rushing in, but slowly seeping through the basement walls.
The "before" photo shows part of the basement that was heavily affected by the water intrusion. You can see the signs of the water intrusion on the left wall. Most of the white "powder" are mineral deposits caused by evaporating water, leaving behind whatever minerals were in the water.
The "after" photo shows the same area, but with our system installed. The two products that are in the picture are our a SuperSump sump pump and our Waterguard system. The Waterguard runs the length of the wall and drains to the sump pump. This keeps water from just sitting on the basement floor or walls and actually gives it a place to go. Once the water drains to the sump pump, it is then pumped outside of the home.
Cracks in floor and walls, mustly smells, and moisture are often ignored unnoticed, or simply thought of as minor problems by many homeowners, but when our customer in Chesnee, SC pulled up a loose floor board and noticed mold, he knew there was a problem that he needed to address immediately.
The home is only 10 years old, but when moisture and water intrude, problems can escalate. In order to kill the existing mold, we used a product call MoldX, which eliminates mold spores. To rectify the moisture and water intrusion issue, we installed a full encapsulation which includes drainage, sump pump, vapor barrier, and dehumidifier.
This customer also had and issue with his floors sagging. In the "before" photo, notice the wooden beams used to support the structure. At this point, the home needed more support. In the "after" photo we have installed Smart Jacks. The Smart Jack structural system won’t settle like masonry piers can; nor will it rot or shift like a wood post.
Now our customer has a beautiful and safe crawlspace!
This home needed some work done in its crawlspace after the homeowner's found standing water and damp ground around the crawlspace. There were several products we used in this project, the main one being our CleanSpace Liner. This products helps to keep your crawlspace separated from the outside world, and especially the earth underneath your home, which is a huge contributor to moisture under the home.
The "before" photo shows part of the basement before the CleanSpace liner had been installed. You can see how the previous crawlspace liner does not even cover all of the ground. In the patch of exposed dirt, you can see damp earth, which is never a good sign.
This "after" photo shows the same area (although from a different angle) after the CleanSpace had been installed. As you can see, our liner goes at least partially up the wall, depending on what our Specialists recommend and what the homeowner decides. This customer decided to take it all the way up the crawlspace wall. Any seams are sealed tight and correctly, leaving no gaps for water or water vapor to get in, or out.
