Crawl spaces are highly susceptible to mold, pests, and rot due to the high humidity and exposure to moist soils. Island Basement Systems installed a CleanSpace encapsulation system to trap out the excess humidity in the crawl space, resulting in a more efficient energy system and ventilation for the home.
Check out this Saltspring Island crawlspace! From rodent-infested, musty and just plain nasty to clean, energy efficient, dry and even pleasant to look at!
This crawlspace had very high moisture levels, rim joist rot, excessive mould. We stopped the moisture problem, got rid of the mould, fixed the rotting issue and the homeowner now has a clean, dry and healthy crawlspace and home!
This crawlspace was really nasty when we were called to fix it. Cold, wet, mouldy and lots of rotting wood. Our CleanSpace liner, SmartSump de-watering, and open cell spray foam insulation was the solution.
When we repair crawlspaces with our encapsulation and spray foam system, we always recommend that mechanical ventilation be installed. This can consist of something as simple as a small fan, a dehumidifier, or ideally, a Heat Recovery Ventilator. Island Basement Systems installs basic HRV systems, and we prefer to see them used as they provide whole home fresh-air exchange which significantly improves your indoor air quality (IAQ).
