Job completed for Janet M

Completion date: January 13, 2021

Customer type: Residential

Location: Little Compton, RI

Why did the customer contact us?

Customer had a Crawlspace that is very damp and smelled like mold. She wanted to see what she could do to improve the space and make it healthy.

What challenges did we face?

The customer had a company glue rigid foam insulation to the walls and add heaters down in the crawlspace. This actually made the environment worse because it created the right type of environment for mold to grow.

Solutions provided:

We provided her with a level 3 Healthy Crawlspace Certificate. This consisted of us ripping all the rigid foam insulation of the walls. We then installed a GrateSump 1/3hp primary pump system. We also encapsulated the crawlspace with DimpleShield drainage matting with the CrawlShield crawlspace liner on top. This will seal back any moisture coming up from the floor and drain any water that enters the space over to the pump system. Once the job was complete we installed a Santa Fe Advance crawlspace dehumidifier in order to keep the humidity in the crawlspace under control.
