Crawl Space Repair in Midlothian, VA

This crawl space had issues with mildew/mold, falling insulation, an ineffective vapor barrier, and moisture concerns in the home. We removed the old insulation and vapor barrier, treated the mildew/mold, installed a new vapor barrier, applied spray foam insulation on the crawl space walls, sealed all the vents, the rim and band, and sill plate, and insulated behind the crawl space door, then installed a dehumidifier to control relative humidity.

Initially, this crawl space was encapsulated with a 6-mil vapor barrier and R-11 vinyl faced fiberglass insulation. Thhomeownerer contacted us with concerns about an ammonia, or animal urine odor in her home and poor air sealing. 

Our goal was to remedy the Home Owner’s concerns of foul odors in her home and wasted energy. To achieve this, we installed a 20 mil Clean Space Vapor Barrier on the floor of the crawl space and around the piers. We installed Foamax board insulation on the walls leaving a 3-inch viewing strip for pest control companies to do their inspection. We applied spray foam insulation to the rim and band and sill plate to create an air seal and reduce drafts coming into the crawl space. Finally, we installed a Sani Dry Sedona Dehumidifier, the leading dehumidifier on the market, to pull any moisture that enters the crawl space out.

This crawl space was originally encapsulated at construction with a 6 mil Vapor Barrier and R-11 vinyl faced fiberglass insulation. The homeowner complained of an animal urine or ammonia odor in their home. This was a result of moisture entering the crawl space through the porous cinder block walls and saturating the fiberglass insulation. 

We installed a 20 mil Clean Space Vapor Barrier, Foamax Insulation Board, sealed the rim & band and sill plate, and installed a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. This approach will help keep moisture out of the crawl space and control relative humidity.

Our master bedroom closet is ridiculously cold and seems to have gotten colder over the past couple of years. The temperature is usually 15-20 degrees cooler than the rest of the house when it's cold outside. We need to find where we are loosing heat and fix the issue. I have checked the airflow of the hvac and it is inline with the other registers on the same unit.

There is standing water in the crawl space under the home. The home sits on a low/level lot with rain runoff coming from adjacent properties towards the home. We've had catch basins and French drains installed around the exterior of the house which has greatly helped, but still need some additions. Approximately 1/3 of crawl space has standing water a rain, does not appear to come from direction of rain run off. Crawl space currently has vapor barrier, a little water visible on top, but mostly under the barrier. Would need to look into crawl space french drain, sump pump, & encapsulation. Thank you.
