Mohammed has been part of The Drying Co. team since 2017. He began working in the Production department learning to install our products and solutions. After a year, he became one of our Home Performance Advisors and has taken great pride in helping customers achieve their goals.
In 2004 Mohammed served as a Translator for the U.S. Army during the Iraq War. In 2012, he came to Williamsburg, VA to visit and fell in love with the area. He has since become a U.S. Citizen. He says his time as a Translator has taught him a lot about communication and active listening. He later worked as a Certified Maintenance Technician for Honda, which has made him more mechanically inclined and allows him to dissect problems to determine the root cause and develop a solution.
He joined The Drying Co. team when some of his friends joined the company. He had a background in construction and manufacturing and wanted to build upon that knowledge. “The Drying Co. has provided training and support tools that I can use in my daily work and my academic studies.” Mohammed’s day to day position includes listening to customer’s concerns and goals, inspecting their attics, basements, and crawl spaces for insulation, water infiltration, and air leakage.
“I like meeting different people every day and helping to provide them with the right solution to make them happy and comfortable in their home.” Mohammed is always eager to go the extra mile and help customers. He says he is proud to work with The Drying Co. because of “constant growth and success, integrity and having a great team to work with.” He would tell any potential applicant that if they want to work as part of a team and be recognized and appreciated every day then they want to be part of The Drying Co.
In his free time, Mohammed is an Undergrad Student taking online courses in Business, enjoys spending time with his wife and three kids, walking the dogs, and taking care of their home.
Our number one asked question is "Will encapsulating my crawl space void my termite warranty?" The short... Watch Video »
Before encapsulating this crawl space, we treated the joists with an antimicrobial called Shockwave. This product is a hospital-grade antimicrobial designed to kill the mold and mildew growth.
The conditioned space shared with these knee walls was sweltering in the summer and freezing in the winter due to sharing a wall with an unconditioned attic space. We installed insulation in the wall cavities and covered it with Tyvec to create an air barrier and better insulate the wall. We also installed insulation on the floor of the space to prevent air loss from the room below.
This Williamsburg crawl space had high relative humidity, falling insulation, mold growth, and a failing vapor barrier. The old insulation, vapor barrier, and debris were removed. We then applied Mold X-2 to kill the mold, installed a new vapor barrier, applied spray foam insulation to the walls, and installed a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to control the relative humidity.
This crawl space has a full-size door as an entry, this creates a large gap in the insulation on the crawl space walls, and it is not airtight. Regardless of how large the crawl space door is, this is always a concern when encapsulating. This is why we always installed a custom friction fit door behind every exterior crawl space door. It meets code by filling the gap and ensuring a continuous R-10 of insulation on the crawl space walls and also air seals. Keeping as much air carrying moisture as possible out of the crawl space.
