The Basement Doctor of Central Kentucky Case Studies: CleanSpace Encapsulation System, EverLast Door and SaniDry used to resolve moisture problems in Somerset, KY

Thursday, August 1st, 2019 by Elaine Davis

Challenge

A Somerset, Kentucky homeowner noticed some moisture in the crawl space of the home.  The home was built about 27 years ago and has a block foundation.  The homeowner called The Basement Doctor of Central Kentucky to find a solution to this problem. 

Solution

Chris, a Certifed Inspector, recommended that the CleanSpace Liner with CleanSpace Drainage Matting, CleanSpace Vent Covers, an EverLast Door, and a SaniDry Sedona are installed to resolve the problems that the homeowner was having in the crawl space of the home. 

The CleanSpace Liner is a bright-white, 20-mil-thick liner, that is similar to a pool liner.  It is attached to the floor and walls of the crawl space with drilled-in fasteners and spikes to provide a vapor-proof barrier between the ground and the home.  The CleanSpace Liner provides a vapor-proof barrier between the ground and the crawl space.  

CleanSpace Drainage Matting is a plastic dimpled liner that is installed under the CleanSpace Liner.  This provides a channel for water to flow out of the crawl space.  

CleanSpace Vent Covers are used to seal the existing vents on the crawl space walls to keep out air and debris from entering the crawl space.  The EverLast Door is also used to help seal the air and debris out of the crawl space and also gives the homeowner a way to easily get into the crawl space. 

The SaniDry Sedona dries and filters the air to keep the humidity low.  Too much humidity in the crawl space encourages mold growth, musty odors, and wood rot.  Too much humidity also causes the living space to be more humid and uncomfortable.  The special filters on the SaniDry also filter out mold spores and allergens, like dust mite droppings. and also has a carbon-filter to prevent musty odors. 

The homeowner said that they were impressed with the professionalism of Andrew and his crew, Killis and Trevor.
