    Customer Testimonial

              Tony: You had met with my husband regarding our two bay windows (master bedroom and master bathroom) and trying to solve our “cold” rooms attached to these bay windows. You suggested an excellent possible solution and this past Friday, a team of 2 men from your firm came out and completed the work you had suggested. I am e-mailing to tell you that your solution has significantly contributed to what we now deem a problem solved! We cannot tell you how astonished and thrilled that the temperature in our master bedroom and master bathroom has been 70 degrees since last Friday and we have removed the space heater that we’ve been using. We both send you our sincere thanks for your thoughtful proposed solution - it has made a tremendous difference and we could not be happier! In the 18 months since we have moved in, you were the only one to even take a closer look at the floor of the bay windows and clearly, this was a real part of the problem with letting cold air into these spaces. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We are also enjoying having the hygrometer installed in the crawl space to monitor things there. We wish you much-continued success

              Mohammed and Mohammed Saeed were absolutely phenomenal. They were polite, prompt, and worked very hard. I don't think they took a single break while they were here! They finished our job quickly and went over exactly what they did andmade sure we didn't have any questions before they left. We are so glad we chose The Drying Company!

    Utility lines in crawl space

    Utility lines in a vented crawl space are often affected by outside air carrying in moisture. Sealing vents, installing the CleanSpace Encapsulation System and insulating the crawl space walls with Spray Foam will help control the flow of air carrying moisture into the crawl space.

    Mold in New Kent Crawl Space

    As the insulation acts as a sponge, it holds moisture against the wood joists raising the moisture content of the joists. Mold requires organic material, warm temperatures, and relative humidity above 60% to grow. Often we see mold growing on the paper backing of the insulation and on wood joists in the crawl space. As the moisture content in the joists increases, the probability for wood rot becomes more likely. Once the joists reach 19% moisture wood rot begins. An antimicrobial called Shockwave is sprayed onto the joists to kill the mold. Once the encapsulation is complete and the dehumidifier is installed it will be set to turn on before the humidity in the crawl space reaches 60% (The ideal point for mold to grow). The Encapsulation system will help prevent ideal conditions for mold to grow from occurring and make the home healthier and more comfortable.
