Mold Remediation is the process of eradicating mold within the home. It is an important aspect of having a safe environment and has become increasingly more important in selling your home. Homes in wetter areas tend to have more mold in their house. Remediation involves fixing the current mold issue and preventing more mold from growing. This is done by addressing where the moisture is coming from. After the mold is cleared, the area must be dried and dust-free.
Waterproofing your basement ensures that you will have a clean and dry basement to enjoy. A flooded or damp basement could result in mold, bugs, and even an unstable foundation. Prevention is better than repair in this scenario. There are several different methods of waterproofing a basement depending on the severity and source of water. Some of the methods our company uses are installing a new drainage system, sump pumps, and pit installation. Crawlspace Renovations will determine what is best for each individual basement.
Crawl Space Encapsulation
Crawl space encapsulation consists of sealing a crawl space from moisture with a high quality vapor barrier on all exposed floor and walls, insulating ring joist, sealing off foundation vents and providing conditioned ventilation. Sealing the crawlspace creates cleaner air and reduces risk of mold. Encapsulating a crawl space also adds value to a home by potentially lowering energy costs and improving the structure of your home.
Interior and Exterior Drainage System
Depending on the source of water and your home, an interior or exterior drainage system may be better. An interior system gathers excess water and sends it to a sump pump, permanently resolving the leak. This is for when water is gathering around the basement floor where it meets the wall. Crawlspace Renovations will determine if an interior or exterior drainage system will be the best solution for your home. An exterior system will redirect water away from the home and protect the foundation from other elements.
Basic Vapor Barrier
A vapor barrier is usually a plastic poly material that is installed on top of the crawlspace floor. It prevents moisture from penetrating the crawlspace air. A vapor barrier is the primary step towards a safe and healthy home.
Crawl Space Insulation
Insulating your crawl space keeps your home energy efficient. Insulating a crawl space consists of installing insulation in the sub-floor of your home. If you opt for encapsulation it is highly recommended to at least insulate your crawl space. Insulation keeps cool air and heat from being lost through the floor.
In a crawl space, a dehumidifier can prevent the growth of mold and improve air quality. This will be helpful if someone suffers from asthma or allergies. Placing a dehumidifier in your crawl space can also prevent structural damage caused by excessive moisture; this could include insect damage, rust, or wood rotting. In these cases, preventative action is better than repair. We install them perfectly leveled over concrete blocks and make them drain by gravity out of the crawlspace or the sump pump.
