CleanSpace will prevent vapor from evaporating into the crawl space from the surrounding Earth. This helps to create cleaner home air. The SmartJack is a high-capacity adjustable steel pier designed to stop settling and even potentially raise the floor back to where it was.
This crawlspace was having issues with leaking from plumbing issues under their home. This home also had 6 mil polyethylene ground cover laying over gravel, a shortcut most people take. The problem with this cover is it rips very easily and gets old quickly, (as seen in the before picture). It also does a terrible job keeping moisture from the earth out. In order to fix these two problems simultaneously we installed our Drainage Matting System, (a dimpled polyethylene membrane) and a Smart Pump. Luckily for this crawl space, their was no groundwater leakage, just the plumbing errors. For this, a Smart Pump is used. This smart pump will alarm the owner when there is a plumbline leak, and at the same time will drains water away into the soil. The Drainage Matting System helps the Smart Pump by flowing water to the pump. It also looks clean and is very durable. Although our Clean Space encapsulation is recommended to be placed over the Drainage Matting System, our customer did not wish for it because moisture in their crawl space was not an issue, just the plumbing leaks.
This homeowner hade a crawlspace that sometimes had puddles of water sit due to plumbing and rainfall issues. The customer did not care for encapsulation because they believed the crawlspace wasn't growing enough mold for them to care, (despite our recommendations). All they wanted was to erase the puddles so we agreed and were not going to try and upsell them. We installed A SmartPump with drainage matting in order to help their plumbing problems.

A homeowner in Nicholasville, Kentucky had a crawl space with a dirt and gravel floor and was having problems with standing water in the crawl space of his home. A certified inspector, Damon, met with the homeowner and recommended CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System, CleanSpace Vent Covers, SilverGlo Insulation, and an EverLast Door. The CleanSpace Encapsulation System will cover the floor and walls sealing out water vapor. The CleanSpace Vent Covers will help to provide an airtight seal. SilverGlo is a rigid wall insulation that reflects heat into the crawlspace, keeping the crawlspace and your floors warmer in the cooler months. He also recommended an EverLast Door to make access into the crawl space easier. Now the homeowner will not have to worry about standing water in the crawlspace.
