Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Damp Crawl Space Solution in Kinnelon, NJ
Having a damp and dirty crawl space is not good for you or the health of your home, and can cause many issues. This homeowner in Kinnelon, New Jersey noticed their crawl space was becoming unhealthy and attracting moisture. This can occur when a crawl space is exposed to the earth's elements. Dirt and soil can hold a lot of moisture, which will eventually turn into water vapor and rise into the crawl space air. This can have many negative effects such as rotting wood, damp smelly carpets, increased energy bills, aggravated allergies, and even mold growth!
The homeowner did not want this issue to go without a solution, so they contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after searching the internet. Our customer care representative booked them an appointment with our System Design Specialist, JC Gibriano. JC provided a thorough inspection and suggested they encapsulate the space to separate it from the earth's elements. A few days later, our foreman arrived and began the process of encapsulating. This is done first by installing the Drainage Matting on the floor of the crawl space. This will direct any water going into your crawl space right to your perimeter drain. Next, our foreman used our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System. This system is a thick and durable plastic liner and is mold-proof and waterproof. CleanSpace blocks moisture and humidity from entering the crawl space, keeping it dry and healthy. When the job was complete, the homeowner was happy with the results!
