Watch this video to learn about the problems with a vented, unsealed crawl space.
If you're experiencing any of these issues, you might benefit from sealing your crawl space. A crawl space vapor barrier, like our CleanSpace® Crawl Space Liner, stops moisture from passing through your floors and porous concrete walls. This durable liner transforms your crawl space in usable storage space, while reducing moisture and musty smells.
This 6035 sq ft crawl space was struggling with water issues. FRS installed an interior drainage system and completed the job with our CleanSpace® crawl space encapsulation system. This massive crawl space is now clean, dry, and ready for additional storage.
This home in Centralia, MO called FRS about sweating walls and a lot of moisture. They also wanted insulation to help with the cold floors above. SilverGlo insulation and CleanSpace were installed creating a moisture free and insulated area that the home owners appreciated.
This homeowner located in Ashland, Missouri was interested in encapsulating his crawl space. The crawl space was continuing to dry out even after he fixed his water leakage. Foundation Recovery Systems installed the Clean Space Liner, Drainage Matting, and a SaniDry CX unit in this crawl space to encapsulate it. The Clean Space Liner will hold back water vapor that is passing through the foundation walls and will direct it to the sump pump system while not allowing any mold or mildew to grow on the liner. The Drainage Matting was put directly on the crawl space floor and the dimples in the matting give the water that is flooding, a channel that will direct the water to the crawl space drain and the sump pump system. The SaniDry CX was installed to keep the dry air circulating throughout the crawl space where the temperature ranges from 40-95 degress F. The homeowner was happy with all three installments and that his crawl space was now encapsulated the correct way.
Having mold and musty smells in your home can cause concern for any homeowner, especially one that is pregnant which was the case for this homeowner. She also wanted the crawl space to be cleaned out for her own piece of mind. To fulfill the customer's request, Foundation Recovery Systems removed all the debris out of the crawl space, sprayed the wood floor joists and bottom side of the floor with Mold X2 to clean the contaminated wood surface. A Clean Space liner was hung to hold back water vapor passing through the foundation wall, the clean space has an anti-microbial protection that allows no mold or mildew to grow on it. Also installed was the crawl space door that creates an airtight, waterproof seal between the crawl space and the outside air. With the Clean Space, Mold X2, and crawl space door, the homeowner should have no issues with growing mold and musty smells.
This customer in Macon, MO contacted Foundation Recovery Systems because she had standing water in her 4' crawl space and her floors were freezing during the winter. She said that her utility bill was way too high for the size of her home. The FRS Specialist found that the crawl space was very damp and had a humidity level of 75% with sweating walls and water dripping off the plumbing. The main beam was rotting by the south end and it was recommended to the homeowner that she needed 3 SmartJacks for stabilization, matting installation with the CleanSpace liner, Silver-Glo on the walls and rim joists, and 4 vent covers in order to encapsulate the crawl space and make it more energy efficient for the homeowner. Customer was extremely happy with the result.
Even if a crawl space is not flooded or visibly wet, that additional humidity can spell trouble for your home - and your health. The fungus responsible for rot and mold not only eats away at the structure of a home, but spreads by producing millions and millions of airborne spores. These spores are a prime suspect for aggravating allergies and many people don't even know what it is that bothers them when they are at home.
For many decades, the solution was to add vents to a crawl space. The thought behind this was that vents would help reduce the moisture in the air. Over the years, research has shown that when the warm outdoor air enters the crawl space through the vents, it can bring a lot of extra water vapor with it, raising the relative humidity in the crawl space.
In fact, the biggest issue - moisture from the dirt beneath a home - is not even addressed with venting. Our crawl space encapsulation system seals the crawl space off from moisture coming up from the dirt and from the damp air outside.
With a crawl space encapsulation system from Foundation Recovery Systems, you will not only stop crawl space leaks and control moisture, but you will gain a healthier and more comfortable home. We offer a full range of crawl space products that are compatible with our CleanSpace® crawl space encapsulation system.
