Job Stories From Deltaville, VA
Controlling Relative Humidity in a Deltaville, Crawl Space

This Deltaville crawl space had insulation falling and puddling on the vapor barrier. The high relative humidity was resulting in mildew and mold growth on the floor joists as well. The homeowner had already blocked the crawl space vents, however, just blocking the vents doesn’t mitigate the moisture and relative humidity concerns that damage insulation and aid microbial growth.

Because humidity continued to collect in the crawl space and it was subject to the warm temperatures, we see most of the year, microbial growth occurred on the joists and paper backing of the insulation. The Fiberglass insulation absorbed the moisture like a sponge holding it against the floor joists. The material became heavier and began to sag and fall. We often see what looks like fiberglass insulation dripping from the joists. This is due to a process called delamination where the fibers and layers of the material begin to separate as it is subjected to moisture and gravity.

The existing 6 mil vapor barrier in the crawl space had evidence of puddling, indicating that water is getting on top of the liner either from infiltration at the foundation walls or condensation. A 6-mil barrier is a flimsy material similar to a trash bag and is easily ripped and displaced and typically has an oily coating on it. This means that it is rarely sealed at the seams because tape often doesn’t stick to it and attaching it and sealing it to the walls is extremely difficult and if successful, it is easily pulled off as you navigate through the space. A 6 mil is typically laid on the floor and held in place with metal stakes. This is ineffective for a vapor barrier because it creates additional openings in the barrier for vapor and moisture to enter the crawl space from the earth, which is already occurring because the liner is unsealed.

For this home, we recommended removing any old, damaged insulation, vapor barrier, and debris. Then we suggested a foundation drainage system to address the bulk water in the crawl space that was contributing to the moisture issue. We would then want to treat the wood with an antimicrobial, called Shockwave. This product is a hospital-grade antimicrobial designed to kill mold. Next, we recommend installing either Closed Cell Spray Foam or Foamax Foam Board insulation on the crawl space walls. Both materials offer a continuous R-10 of insulation on the walls, and a friction fit door is installed behind the exterior door for insulation and air sealing.  We will also seal and insulate the sill plate and rim and band to reduce any gaps in the home allowing in outside air and moisture. Finally, we suggest installing a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidification System. The SaniDry is specifically designed to control the relative humidity in the crawl space, removing moisture from the air and circulating dry air.

If the homeowner chooses to apply this solution to their crawl space, they will be able to not only control the moisture impacting their crawl space but make their home more energy-efficient and comfortable. The homeowner also won’t need to worry about treating mold, replacing insulation or the vapor barrier in their crawl space again.
