Having a crawlspace encapsulated is almost always a good idea, even if you aren't having problems at the moment. Getting a crawlspace encapsulated not only keeps water from getting into the crawlspace, but has a number of other benefits. Some of the others include; no more swelling or cracking floors, savings on heating and air, and easier access to crawlspace.

This homeowner in Columbia, SC was having some work done on in their basement, which was attached to the crawlspace of the home. The owner wanted to make sure that the crawlspace wouldn't end up affecting their basement later on, so they decided to give our company a call to have the crawlspace encapsulated!

The difference that our CleanSpace liner made was incredible. It completely transformed the look and function of the crawlspace. The crawlspace is now a much better looking area, where the homeowner no longer has to worry about any problems that could have arisen from having an unencapsulated crawlspace.

One product that we do not get to install too often is the Turtl Crawlspace Entrance, which is a shame because it is a very cool product! They are installed when a crawl space entrance is located below ground level, which is one of the main reasons we do not get to put them in too often. These are airtight and leak-free entrances, so when it rains, you will not have to worry about water getting into your crawlspace.

The "before" photo shows the old crawlspace entrance, which certainly was not the prettiest sight. While it did have a cover, it still has a lot of areas for water to leak into. This entrance is also pretty tight to squeeze into, which the Turtl fixes!

The "after" picture shows the Turtl in action! As you can see, this entrance is much cleaner and nicer to enter the crawlspace in! You can also see the CleanSpace liner has already been installed in the crawlspace, which is another way we help to prevent water from making its way into the crawlspace.

One of the most important parts of an installation of our system is making sure that the water is pumped out of the home and far enough away that it won't get back to the home. Sometimes this may be just a few feet and sometimes this can be a few dozen feet. In this homeowner's case, it was the latter of the two.

This discharge line can be seen in the first photo. As you can see, the discharge line comes from around the side of the home, through the front yard, and to a bed in the front of the home. This may seem excessive, but because of where the home was built this was the closest area that the water would not run back towards the home. Our crews only remove what they need so that the impact that they leave is as limited as possible.

The photo that was taken after the crew was packed up and about to head home was much different then earlier. They do such a great job making everywhere that they work look like almost no work has been done. In this case, the area of grass that had been removed cannot really be seen. One of our goals is to solve your problems, while keeping our footprint as small as possible. The crew did a great job of this for this homeowner!

Job Stories From Columbia, SC
Columbia, SC Crawlspace Goes Out with the Old Insulation and Back in with the New CleanSpace

Crawlspaces can be a haven of humidity, a home for mold growth, and the heavyweight champion of “you don’t want to go down there.” Depending on the overall size and the items you have in it, crawlspaces can leave anyone feeling a little claustrophobic. This Columbia, SC crawlspace was no different. It was filled with hanging wires, falling insulation, and creeping crawlspace liners. And, despite all of these elements, the home was experiencing major moisture issues.

None of the installed items were actually doing their job. When the homeowner finally decided to give us a call, we were a little surprised at the state of it. But, it was nothing we couldn’t handle.

Our Design Specialist set to work, drawing up a sketch of the crawlspace and mapping out where everything would go.

In the end, this Columbia home needed our CleanSpace liner (to replace the loose, useless liner already torn and present), the Santa Fe dehumidifier to remove the moisture from the air, a SmartSump sump pump, and SilverGlo (our answer to the flimsy, moisture ridden insulation). Once our crew pulled out all of that old insulation and liner, space was practically transformed.

Columbia, SC Crawlspace in Need of CleanSpace barrier

This home in Columbia, SC had a crawlspace with a lot of issues. While many crawlspaces boast dirt floors, the dirt floors are usually the reason for much of the moisture issues. Without a plastic covering of some sort to trap the water vapor, it will rise right out of the dirt and into the crawlspace as well as the rest of the home. When that water vapor turns to water, you’ve gotten yourself a brand new puddle. The best way to handle this issue is to put down an impermeable material, specially designed for this purpose.

That’s where All-Dry of the Carolinas comes into play. 

Our Design Specialist spoke with the homeowner, deduced the problem, and prescribed CleanSpace. CleanSpace, of course, is a 20 mils thick, reinforced plastic liner we use to cover crawlspace floors. The CleanSpace, for added coverage, is also sealed to the surrounding walls using a variety of methods designed to keep the material in place. This material is the ultimate product to keep that water vapor from rising up out of the soil and into your home.

Notice the difference? Not only is the water vapor problem solved, but the CleanSpace also transforms the crawlspace into a brighter, more aesthetically pleasing area. This homeowner no longer has to decide which pants they'll have to ruin climbing down in here. Now, they could move around easily without risking their Sunday's Best.

Columbia, SC Home Receives Push Piers to Fix Stair Step Cracks in Exterior

Although wall cracks can be unsightly and potentially damaging to a home, a lot of people will put off finding a solution to the problem in favor of ignoring it all together. However, it never does the home or the homeowners any good. When they do decide to give us a call, the problem has progressed into a major issue, but we’re usually still more than happy to deal with it.

This homeowner was one of the early birds. They noticed the cracks in the outside wall of the house and decided to give us a call. As seen in the pictures, these stair step cracks are usually the result of the foundation settling. As time moves on, these cracks widen, making spaces wide enough for small vermin and insects to slip through.

The last few photos show where our crew installed the Push Piers which are made of steel. These piers permanently stabilize the home’s foundation and, in many cases, this solution can also lift a home back toward level, closing cracks and improving the operation of doors and windows. This installation does not require the use of heavy equipment, but it reaches greater depths than most other options.  It also, despite traveling so deep, requires minimal space to install and there’s very little disturbance on the property.

Tight Crawlspace in Columbia, SC with High Humidity Level Has CleanSpace Encapsulation System Installed

Working in the crawlspace industry for decades has allowed each member our company to see a variety of different crawlspaces. Some are tall enough where you can walk and some aren't even big enough to turn from your stomach to your back. This crawlspace in Columbia, South Carolina was definitely was on the shorter side, allowing just enough room in some areas to crawl beneath the floor joists. 

 When our System Design Specialist went out to the home to assess the situation in the crawlspace, he found out how serious the issue was. When the homeowner initially called in, they reported that during heavy rains they would get 2-3 feet of water in the taller part of the crawlspace. Our Specialist almost immediately finding signs of this, one of the main ones being mold and mildew growth under the home. This crawlspace definitely needed a long-term solution to prevent this from happening over and over again. Our Design Specialist came up with a proposal on the spot for a system that would keep this homeowner from having to worry about any more water intrusion issues.

The system that was proposed included drainage matting, 3-inch drain tile, CleanSpace liner, a TripleSafe sump system, and a dehumidifier. These products all work together to provide a system that effectively keeps the water out of the crawlspace and keeps the humidity in the crawlspace below the point where mold can grow. Even in this very tight area our crew was able to properly seal everything up and leave this homeowner not having to worry about a thing!
