Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Crawl Space Repair in Newark, DE
A homeowner in Newark, DE was experiencing water in their crawl space, as well as showing signs of mold. Exposed earth contributes a lot of water vapor into the crawl space air. The earth is damp and as damp soil dries beneath the house, the water vapor moves upward. Groundwater seeps and leaks get into many crawl spaces as well. The negative effects of a wet crawl space are, mold, smelly damp carpets, increased heating and cooling bills since damp air takes more energy to cool and heat, and even mold upstairs. The homeowner contacted us and our foreman, Sean installed the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System in the crawl space. Any rocks or debris in the crawl space are removed and uneven surfaces are leveled. The foreman carefully fitted and installed the liner, and held it in place with drilled-in fasteners and spikes. Check out this transformation!
