    Customer Testimonial

              Matt, I just wanted to get back with you about the check of my crawl space last Friday. I am so glad that my neighbor recommended The Drying Company last summer. Chad was terrific. He was patient and courteous, checked out the outside and the inside, took photos of the rodent damage for me to pass on to the HVAC folks, and checked around the HVAC system to locate the entry point. He even reported to me that he had something to talk to his guys about; he moved a sensor (I think that's right) farther from the dehumidifier. Now, he did not need to tell me that because I'd never have known, but it's a testament to the honest, get-it-right approach of the company. [Mike H.] came yesterday and he even helped the HVAC guy (who came back to replace a worn part in the heating unit) fix the damage to the duct insulation. The ducts weren't actually compromised. The rodents had been shredding the insulating layer, apparently for nesting material. Mike baited the area and hopefully, the problem will be eraticated (spelling intended) within the week. I just thought you might want to know that I am grateful and impressed. Thank you for the swift response to my call last week, to Chad for his assistance and recommendation, and for hooking me up with a quality contractor for pest control. If you ever have a prospective client who wants to talk to someone before deciding, feel free to give them my contact info.

    Mold Remediation in Mineral, VA Crawl Space

    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. 

  • Irvington, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation
    Before
    Irvington, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation
    After

    Irvington, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation

    This Irvington, VA crawl space had microbial growth on floor joists, was missing insulation in many areas, and the vapor barrier was unsealed, allowing moisture from the earth to impact the crawl space. After cleaning all of the old materials and debris out, we treated the floor joists with Shockwave Antimicrobial and sealed the crawl space from the earth’s moisture with the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. We sealed all outside penetrations to the foundation, including air gaps such as vents, the sill plate, and rim and band. Closed Cell Spray Foam is ready to be applied to the walls and a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier will be installed to control the relative humidity. The system will help protect the home from microbial growth and make the home more comfortable, improve indoor air quality, and reduce energy bills.
