Before and After Pictures from Henrico
CleanSpace Vapor Barrier in a Henrico, VA Crawl Space

CleanSpace Vapor Barrier in a Henrico, VA Crawl Space

Before After
CleanSpace Vapor Barrier in a Henrico, VA Crawl Space CleanSpace Vapor Barrier in a Henrico, VA Crawl Space

The original liner installed in this Henrico crawl space was a flimsy 6-mil vapor barrier. There were gaps in the liner, exposing the crawl space to moisture rising from the earth. This moisture can increase the relative humidity, which can lead to mold or mildew growth, condensation, and higher energy bills. We replaced this old liner with our 10-mil CleanSpace Light vapor barrier, which gets wrapped around all piers and mechanically fastened and sealed six to eight inches above outside grade on the foundation walls. CleanSpace will help protect the crawl space from moisture rising from the earth and comes with an antimicrobial, called UltraFresh, built into the material to help mitigate mold growth on the liner, itself.

This Henrico, VA client contacted us because they wanted to address the insulation in their crawl space. Moisture had caused damage to the fiberglass insulation and it was sagging and falling to the ground. The unsealed, vented crawl space was allowing moisture to flood in and cause damage to the insulation as well as mold and mildew growth. 


The homeowner wanted to not only reinsulate the crawl space, but they also didn't want to do it again in a few years. After reviewing their options, they opted to encapsulate the space. The crawl space was cleaned out and treated with an antimicrobial. Then, a new vapor barrier is installed sealing the crawl space off from the earth's moisture. Our team then air seals the space by blocking and sealing all vents and sealing any penetrations through the foundation wall to the outside. 


Next closed-cell spray foam is applied to the foundation walls and rim band. A SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier is installed to control the relative humidity and help prevent future microbial growth. Finally, an interior friction-fit door is installed to air seal and insulate behind the exterior door, and an Everlast exterior crawl space door is installed on the outside. 

Upgrading a Basement Sump Pump

This homeowner needed a new sump pump installed as part of a basement waterproofing system. Their old one was an open pit, that allowed odors and moisture to rise into the basement and be pulled up into the living space. 


Their new pump is a large basin that houses a 1/3hp pump covered with an air-tight lid. The system has a float on top allowing for water to enter if a leak occurs from above, and the basin is large enough that if the homeowner later feels a need to add a pump or battery backup system, they can do so without having to re-dig the hole or replace the basin. A clean pump stand keeps the sump out of any grime, grit, and sediment that may collect in the bottom of the basin to prevent clogs.

Crawl Space Repair Experts

Your crawl space is often out of sight and thus out of mind, but that doesn't mean your crawl space isn't important. In fact, issues with your crawl space can often make their presence felt throughout the rest of your home. Many crawl spaces are vented, and this ineffective practice often makes them the perfect home for mold, pests, and more. The air that passes through this crawl space will then pick up these contaminants and bring them into the rest of your home. This air can also prove a source of cold floors and costly drafts.

The experts at The Drying Co./ThermalTec can help you transform your crawl space from a detriment into an asset. With crawl space encapsulation we can completely seal your crawl space to prevent the drafts and pests that can make it a filthy space in the first place. We also offer other crawl space repair solutions like crawl space insulation, dehumidifiers, and support jacks.
