4 Steps to a Clean Crawl Space

3 Products to Completely Waterproof your Crawl Space - Image 1

Step 1: Fix the water leakage. If there is any water whatsoever in your crawl space, it needs to be addressed prior to the installation of CleanSpace. In order to solve this problem, a sump pump needs to be installed. Fortress Foundation Solutions suggests a SmartSump, which is a high quality crawl space sump system. It includes a perforated sump liner, reliable pump, alarm system, pump stand, and an airtight lid with a floor drain.

Step 2: Isolate the home from the earth. This step is key to solving your nasty crawl space problem and turning it into a nice crawl space. The CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System can be fitted in your crawl space to completely seal off your home from the earth. CleanSpace has multiple layers and is puncture and tear resistant. It also contains an antimicrobial additive, which prevents mold growth on the liner. The bright white color dramatically transforms your crawl space into a healthy, useable space.

Step 3: Seal out outside air. Now that your crawl space has been isolated from the earth, you need to seal off all vents because they only make the moisture problem worse. Special CleanSpace vent covers are designed to provide an airtight seal for your crawl space. The all-plastic vent cover won’t rot, need paint, or be eaten by bugs. After sealing out the air, there’s only one more step to having a clean crawl space—dehumidification.

Step 4: Keep your crawl space air dry. Any generic dehumidifier seems like it would get the job done, but that is not the case. The SaniDry Basement Air System is the only machine that will get you the results you need. The SaniDry is a high-capacity, high-efficiency dehumidification system, with air filtration, too. It filters particles out of the air to less than two microns in size, which is smaller than any mold spore or dust mite dropping. The SaniDry dries your building materials and contents, making the damp smell and feeling go away.
