Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Blue Ridge Crawl Space With Humidity And Foundation Problems

Monday, July 1st, 2019 by Kinsey Price


Not only was this crawl space having humidity issues, but it was also experiencing many problems with its foundation. The space had a very musty smell and appeared to be extremely damp. The crawl space was also very dirty and had an open vent. Vents in crawl spaces should typically be sealed off at all times.


Fortress Foundation Solutions first addressed the crawlspace humidity and drainage issues. First, Fortress removed all of the debris from the space. Next, we installed CleanSpace drain matting on the floor and the columns in the space. To battle the high humidity, a Sanidry XP was installed. A Sanidry is the most efficient dehumidifier Fortress can place in a crawlspace. A SmartSump pump was also installed to capture and drain the water out of the crawlspace. IceGuard and LawnScape attach to the SmartSump, but are used to drain the water out and away from the home. One final renovation we made to this crawlspace was the sealing of the vents.
