Olympic Restoration Systems Case Studies: 1 Foot Crawl Space in Beaumont

Monday, November 20th, 2017 by Heather Harris

Challenge

A homeowner began having issues with mold growth in their home. It was discovered that the humidity was caused by their crawl space. We needed to install a vapor barrier, sump pump, and dehumidifiers but the crawl space was only 6' to 12' inches tall.

Solution

Before we could get started with the installation, our team had to dig a tunnel/trench for the dehumidifier ducting. We then installed a SmartSump pump system with liner, cast iron pump, CleanPump Stand, airtight lid with airtight floor drain, and WaterWatch alarm system.  Debris were removed and a SaniDry CX Air System was installed to keep humidity low. They equipped the crawl space with an encapsulation system using CleanSpace Drainage Matting under a CleanSpace liner. The area was regraded to direct water seepage to a sump system. A small pump was installed to move the water from the dehumidifier to and out of the crawl space. Two wireless sensors were placed to send temperature and humidity readings to a small panel inside the house. Finally, an EverLast Door was constructed to allow access to the crawl space and keep water and air out. It was a lot of hard work but the owner was able to rest easy knowing he had a system in place to keep his house mold free.
