Remove Debris and Level Dirt
We come in and do a thorough inspection of your crawlspace. Inspection includes: Checking for water leaks, foundation damage, busted pipes, proper drainage, wood rot or decay, and wet insulation. We will provide client with all the information that is gathered. This inspection comes at no cost.
Crawlspace debris removal: debris in the crawl area makes inspection and repair work difficult, may be dangerous itself, or may invite infestation by rodents, wood destroying insects, or mold contamination. For these reasons an important step in crawl space dry-out or mold removal is debris removal. We will also smooth out the ground in the crawlspace to keep out moisture pockets.
Is there wet, falling or rodent-infested fiberglass insulation in the crawlspace? If so there is a high risk of mold or rodent contaminants that could present a fungal, bacterial, or viral airborne hazard. We recommend completely removing all wet insulation from crawlspaces. That I know of, we are the only crawlspace company in this area that removes and replaces wet insulation.

Dry Out the Crawlspace
What to expect
The results from a crawlspace research project show that in humid climates, three things need to be done to keep crawlspaces dry: fixing water entry problems, closing off the wall vents, and installing a full-ground and wall moisture barrier that can effectively reduce crawlspace moisture levels. will take the necessary steps to complete this task for all of our customers.
We have studied several dehumidifiers and find the Aprilaire Model 1830 Dehumidifier to be the most effecient. When all other steps are completed we will install this dehumidifier.The Aprilaire:

The Honeywell Portable Barometric Weather Forecaster from
Meade records and charts 24 hour barometric pressure. It also keeps precise time, since the 12/24 hour clock is programmed to synchronize with the US atomic clock automatically. The Weather Forecaster displays indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity. It also displays minimum/maximum temperature and humidity.
Easy to read large blue backlit LCD display
Indoor, outdoor temperature, humidity display and 24 hour barometric pressure history
Displays minimum and maximum temperature, and humidity
Temperature display in Celsius or Fahrenheit
Can be mounted to a wall or set upon a desktop
Ice warning alarm will sound once the temperature reaches 32°F(0°C) or below
Receives time signal from the US Atomic Clock
Comes with one remote TS33C-M sensor - can accommodate a total of 3 sensors
We will remove standing water in the crawlspace. Then we will remove moisture from the crawlspace materials and surfaces. This means dry out wood framing, subfloor overhead, and the crawlspace floor surface.
It is our mission to use the best products possible for our clients.
There are other crawlspace installers using thin plastic barriers, some using black or clear plastic and some using plastics that give off obnoxious odors - an effect which may become suddenly noticeable and more significant than you anticipated once you've spread a smelly plastic out over a large crawlspace area below a building. It may take some time for such odors to dissipate.
Our installer will be using a strong 30 MIL white liner that is not easily punctured. It is installed as part of an active control system extending across the entire building including walls, and crawlspace floors. The WHITE liner makes it brighter so all areas can be more visible which helps you and all maintenance men fill more comfortable in your crawlspace. We are currently the only encapsulation company that uses a 30 MIL liner.
