Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Damp Crawl Space Repair in Lavallette, NJ
Having a damp and dirty crawl space underneath your home is not good for your health, or your home's health. This homeowner in Lavallette, New Jersey noticed a musty smell coming from their crawl space. This can often happen when a crawl space is left unsealed from the earth's elements. Dirt and soil hold a lot of moisture, which can turn into water vapor that rises into the air. This can cause many negative effects in a home such as musty smells, increased energy bills, aggravated allergies, rotting wood, and even mold growth and critters!
The homeowner did not want this issue to go without a repair, so they searched the internet for solutions. They came across Quality 1st Basement Systems and gave us a call. Our customer care representative was able to book them an appointment with our System Design Specialist. Our system design specialist went to the home to provide a free inspection, and they suggested the homeowner should encapsulate their crawl space. Encapsulation will completely seal the crawl space from the earth's elements. A few days later, our foreman arrived at the home to begin installing our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System. This is done by removing dirt and debris from the crawl space, carefully fitting the CleanSpace liner into the crawl space, and keeping it in place with drilled-in spikes and fasteners. CleanSpace is a thick and durable liner that is mold-proof and waterproof. This system will block moisture and humidity from entering the crawl space, keeping it dry and healthy! When the job was finished, the homeowner was happy to see their crawl space was transformed!
