A crawl space under this Glastonbury, CT’s first-floor bedroom was created when the original owners of the house put on an addition. The space had a dirt floor and vents to the outdoors. A number of years ago, the homeowners hired someone to insulate the crawl space. Insulation was installed on all of the surfaces and covered with plastic. When the homeowners checked the condition of the crawl space in the early summer, they discovered that the insulation was moldy and falling down, the vents were rotted (allowing access to the house by critters of all sizes), and the space had very high humidity. The homeowners couldn't call us fast enough!
A full encapsulation of the crawl space was a necessity. CleanSpace was installed on top of the dirt floor to prevent moisture from seeping through. The SilverGlo panels were placed on the wall to act as a radiant barrier. Lastly, a SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to keep humidity below 55%. Now, with this full crawl space encapsulation and a SaniDry dehumidifier installed by our company, the homeowners now have a clean, dry, critter-free space under their bedroom!
