Job Stories From Locust Hill, VA
Water Mitigation in a Community Center Crawl Space in Locust Hill, VA

A community center in Locust Hill, VA contacted us when they had some moisture issues in the crawl space. They had an excess of water coming into the crawl space. Moisture stains were present on the walls and the ground was damp and muddy.

Moisture absorbed into the fiberglass insulation, making it heavier and causing the batts to fall. As moisture collected in the insulation, it damaged the fibers, causing the material to pull apart from itself. The high relative humidity and warm temperatures in the space had allowed mold to grow on the floor joists and paper backing of the insulation.

The building’s managers wanted to address the water and mold concerns under the structure and protect it from future problems.

First, we began by cleaning out the crawl space, removing all debris, insulation, and 6-mil vapor barrier. We then treated the mold with Shockwave, a hospital-grade antimicrobial designed to kill the mold. The next step was to install a drainage system to mitigate the bulk water seeping into the crawl space. We dug a trench around the perimeter of the crawl space and installed stone and drain line. The drain line fed to a SuperSump Pump which evacuates the water and discharges it to a spot on the property designated by the owner.

Next, we seal the crawl space from the earth with a heavy-duty CleanSpace vapor barrier. The liner is sealed at all seams, wrapped and sealed around all piers, and attached and sealed to the foundation walls about 6 inches above outside grade. This will prevent moisture that seeps through the walls from entering the crawl space, and instead direct it under the liner. It will also stop water vapor from the earth from rising into the crawl space.

Then, we seal off all vents, the sill plate, rim and band, and any penetrations through the crawl space walls to outside. This stops as much outside air from entering the crawl space as possible. Next, we insulated the crawl space walls with rigid foam board insulation. The sheets of insulation are mechanically attached to the walls and sealed at all seams.

Finally, we installed a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. This is the last step to controlling the relative humidity and preventing future microbial growth. The Sedona pulls excess moisture out of the air, filters the air, and circulates dry air throughout the crawl space.

This solution will mitigate the excess water, discharging it away from the foundation. With the crawl space sealed and relative humidity controlled, the substructure is protected from future moisture damage and mold and mildew growth.

If your business has a wet crawl space, call the pros at The Drying Co. our Advisors will do a thorough inspection, take photos, and discuss your options with you. Call 1-833-933-3111 to schedule a free inspection and estimate.
