Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Crawl space water resolved with CleanSpace in Goshen, OH
A Goshen, Ohio homeowner was having problems with water seeping into a crawl space in his home. The home is over 30 years old, has a block foundation, a dirt floor in the crawl space, and a sump pump has been installed in the crawl space. He called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati and met with Walt, a Certified Inspector, to find a solution to this problem.
Walt recommended a SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System, CleanSpace Encapsulation System, Rim Joist Insulation, a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier, Rim Joist Insulation and, an EverLast door.
The SmartSump is specially made for crawl spaces and includes the WaterWatch Alarm, Airtight floor drain, clean pump stand and a two-piece lid that allows for easy access to the pump and fits tightly against the CleanSpace Liner.
CleanSpace Encapsulation System is a mold and vapor-proof liner that is installed on the floor and walls of the crawl space. This provides a barrier between the ground and your home. CleanSpace Vent Covers also help to seal the crawl space. An EverLast Door was also installed to give easy access and seal the crawl space. This also will help to control moisture and keep debris from getting into the crawl space.
The rim joist is the board just above the foundation at the perimeter of the flooring system above the crawl space. Unconditioned air can leak in and cause cold floors and higher heating costs in the winter and problems with condensation and humidity in the summer. Sealing and insulating your rim joist will help solve both of these problems.
The SaniDry Sedona is an energy-star rated dehumidifier and will keep the humidity low. Keeping the humidity low is an important step in controling mold growth and makes the environment of the home more comfortable.
