After 2 days of removing debris. They were ready to encapsulate.
Customer Bought the house 2 years earlier and noticed damp smells coming from crawlspace. This was a huge concern for him.
A drainage system was added to the perimeter called SmartPipe. This pipe designed for crawlapces drains directly to a new sump, called SmartSump, which specifically designed for crawlspaces.
after the pipe is in place , a drainage matting is added to protect the vapor barrier and asure no water is stuck in one area.
Two types of insulation is added. First a rigid foam insulation is added to the perimer walls and a softer less rogid insulation is added to the floor to stop coldness from coming through the ground.
The Terrablock ground insulation comes in 2' x 4' panels so they can be brought into the tight spaces of the crawlspaces.
Once all the insulation is place, they can start on the next process of encapsulation
A product called Cleanspace encapsulatesd the entire crawlspace with a 21mil -7 layer barrier that has cord reinforcements so it wil never come off. It has a product called Ultrafresh built right in , which is a anti-bacterial, so mold wil not grow.
Cleanspace is wrapped around all piers so no moisture can come out from under the floor
Once the Cleanspace encapsulation is place, it will be extremely easy to access all other aspects of the home from within the crawlspace. CHanging the furnace filter will no longer be a scary job for anyone in the house. Plumbers or electricians won't be terrified to go into the crawlspace.
A Sanidry Sedona de-humidifier is installed right in the crawlspace now to keep humidity at a desired level. This will protect the building materials, reduce energy and the best part, reduce odours.
The dehumidifier drains directly into the sump system so nobody has to empty a bucket.
James T. moved into his house 2 years ago and noticed damp smells coming from his crawlspace. Also he needed more insulation to save energy.
Omni went in and recommended a drainage system with a sump pump and encapsulation system called Cleanspace. Also to insulate the floor and walls of the crawlspace. The last thing is to installed a heavy duty dehumidifier to the crawlspace to dry out the building materials and reduce odours. This system has a high quality filtration system to filter out any allergens
