Encapsulating a Crawl Space from Moisture in Prince George, VA

This crawl space has been battling moisture and humidity. The high relative humidity and moisture in the space have resulted in microbial growth on the floor joists, damaged and falling insulation, and even some odors in the living space, impacting the indoor air quality of the home. Our team begins by cleaning out the debris and old insulation and vapor barrier. Then they begin sealing off the crawl space from outside air and the earth's moisture. Sealing the crawl space, insulating the foundation walls, and controlling the relative humidity with a dehumidifier will help to prevent future microbial growth.

Spray Foam Insulation Contractor

Spray foam insulation is the best choice for insulation if you’re looking to increase your comfort & decrease your energy bills. Spray foam insulation is truly the best option for home insulation and here are a few reasons why. Spray Foam Insulation provides an air barrier due to its ability to fill gaps and cracks. It is also great at staying in the hard to reach areas because of its super-adhesive qualities. Unlike fiberglass and cellulose insulation, spray foam insulation is waterproof. Water will not be able to pass through the foam which makes it an extremely durable and long-lasting product. Lastly, spray foam insulation is foolproof. Spray foam is sprayed as a liquid and then expands and hardens to fill voids and gaps. There is never any chance for an area to be missed or void to form. Once cured, spray foam insulation will stay in place for decades to come and will never shift or settle like fiberglass. To ensure your home has the best insulation available and your energy bills are low, switch to spray foam insulation today!

Blown-in & Attic Insulation

Blown-in insulation is often called blow-in or blown insulation, but it doesn’t matter what you call it. What does matter is how well it keeps your home insulated. Many people are under the impression that their attic has enough insulation, however, 9 out of 10 times it does not. In a nationwide study, it was found that the average American attic only has about 1/3 enough insulation to keep the home properly insulated. That is where blown-in insulation comes in. Blown-in insulation is blown into your attic and forms a dense layer that will ensure heat will not escape through the top of your home. Having an attic that is properly insulated can cut heating and cooling costs but up to 20%. What are you waiting for? Call or click today to schedule a FREE blown-in or attic insulation estimate!

Job Stories From Hopewell, VA
Hopewell, VA CleanSpace Encapsulation System

This Hopewell, VA homeowner contacted us with concerns about wood rot and moisture in their crawl space. At our inspection, we found signs of water infiltration and moisture on the foundation walls evidenced by staining on the walls and efflorescence. Moisture enters the crawl space through the foundation walls, open vents, and water vapor rises from the earth. The accumulation of moisture resulted in mold and mildew growth on the floor joists and began to rot one of the joists. Fiberglass insulation soaks up the moisture in the air and holds it against the floor joists. As this occurs, the insulation becomes heavier and begins to sag and eventually fall.

To address the homeowner’s concerns, we proposed a CleanSpace Encapsulation System with the SaniDry Sedona Dehumidification System and sistering the joist that is damaged. First, we would remove all of the old materials and clean out any debris and sister the joist that has been compromised. Then, our team would do a physical wipe down of the floor joists with Shockwave antimicrobial, which will kill any microbial growth. The next step would be to seal the crawl space off from the earth and its moisture. This would be achieved by installing the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier, wrapping all piers and running the liner up the walls 6-8 inches above outside grade. By doing this, we can direct any moisture that finds its way through the block wall below the liner preventing it from entering the crawl space. We would seal any penetrations for utility lines and seal all vents from the inside the rim and band is sealed and the Sill plate is sealed to the top of the foundation wall. Sealing these gaps allows us to prevent as much air carrying moisture from entering the crawl space as possible and reduces drafts in your home.

Next, we recommended applying an R-10 of closed-cell spray foam to the foundation walls, leaving a 2-inch viewing strip at the top of the block wall. The viewing strip is required by VA building code to allow termite companies to perform their inspections. We also install an interior friction fit door behind the exterior crawl space door. This suffices the required continuous R-10 on foundation walls in an encapsulation and air seals behind the crawl space door. We also recommend installing an Everlast Crawl Space door on the exterior, the Everlast door complies with HOAs and will not rust, rot or warp. The final piece of the puzzle is the SaniDry Sedona Dehumidification System which will cut on when the relative humidity increases above 55%. The goal is to keep the relative humidity below 60%, the point at which microbial growth begins. Along with the dehumidifier, we install a wireless hygrometer so that the homeowner can monitor the humidity and temperature in their crawl space from inside their home.

As a system, this will help prevent mold growth and wood rot from occurring again. It will also improve the indoor air quality of the home, reduce energy bills, keep floors warmer in the winter, and make the home more comfortable year-round.

I am currently selling this property and there was some concern for moisture in the crawlspace. The A/C unit is in the crawlspace and the condensation line had come disconnected but I had it reattached. I want to ensure that was the only source of water getting into the crawlspace before moving forward with the sell. Was hoping for an inspection of the crawlspace to ensure it was not going to be a future problem for the buyers.

I have mold in-between my first and second story of my house from where the AC ducts were not insulated and the humidity from the summer caused condensation. I need to know if the mold needs to be cleaned up and then the ducts insulated.
