Before and After Pictures from Midlothian
Midlothian, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation

Midlothian, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation

Before After
Midlothian, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation Midlothian, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation

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.

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.

1. Ground installation of an energy efficient Santa Fe Compact 70 dehumidifier (or equivalent) with filter(s) installed and ground installation of the compatible condensate pump with the drain line routed through the foundation. [Do not cut off any excess length of the tube that extends outside of the crawl space.] 2. Installation of a remote thermometer and humidity monitor [Something basic and reliable- e.g. crawl space sensor and indoor digital readout] 3. Seal all electrical, plumbing, etc. penetrations and obvious problem areas around the cinder block perimeter with foam. 4. Seal all vents with foam board (or alternative) and manufacture/rework crawlspace door to provide proper seal. 5. Recommend actions to add an electrical outlet and state where the dehumidifier would be installed. The middle bay seems the obvious choice.
