Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Damp Crawl Space Solution in Norwood, NJ
A homeowner in Norwood, New Jersey noticed their dirt crawl space was attracting moisture and musty smells. This can happen when a crawl space isn't sealed from the earth's elements. Soil and dirt can hold a lot of moisture and cause water vapor to rise into the air and create issues within your home. These issues could be smelly carpets, rotting wood, signs of mold growth, and increased energy bills. Luckily, there are solutions to fix this issue before it gets worse!
The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after seeing our ads online. Our customer care representative booked them an appointment with our system design specialist. Our specialist arrived at the home a few days later and provided a free estimate inspection, and he suggested they encapsulate the space. Our foreman and crew began by installing our Drainage Matting to rest directly on the crawl space floor. Drainage matting will catch any water and drain it to the sump pump to prevent water from coming up through the floors. Next, we installed our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System which is a thick and durable liner and is also waterproof and mold-proof. This is done by removing debris and rocks, and leveling uneven surfaces. CleanSpace is carefully fitted to the crawl space and kept in place with drilled-in pegs. Since the installation, the homeowner has not noticed any water in their crawl space and they have a dry and healthy space for storage!
