Alabama Professional Services Case Studies: Cleanspace Encapsulation in Clanton, Al.
The customer called us with an issue noticed by her heating and air guy. They couldn't figure out why the ductwork was sweating so much. They even replaced the duct work a year ago and continued to have the issue. When I came to do my inspection I found the crawlspace had a water intrusion issue coming through the foundation block wall and a moisture issue. They also had rolled insulation in the subfloor. As a result of the water, moisture, and high humidity the insulation and floor system was holding a lot of moisture resulting in mold. As for the ductwork, it is having to work hard in the summer to cool down the house, so it condensates on the ground and it creates a continuous cycle.
First we removed the insulation, and performed a mold x treatment on the entire crawlspace. We then addressed the water issue with an Ez Flow drainage system and 2 Ultrasumps and discharged the water well away from the house. To help the air handler and ductwork as well as substitute what the rolled floor insulation was trying to achieve. We installed our Silver Glo wall insulation board to increase the R value. To keep all the moisture and humidity out of the crawlspace we sealed off the vents from inside and installed an encapsulation with a commercial grade dehumidifier to control the environment.
