CASE STUDIES

Crawl Space Encapsulation...Alexandria, MN

Monday, October 29th, 2012 by Eric Rysdam

Challenge

A homeowner in Alexandria, MN reached out to Innovative Basement Authority for help with her home. A musty smell alerted the homeowner to the moisture problem somewhere in her home. The smell triggered the homeowner's allergies and caused her to worry about the health of the children she watches in the daycare she runs from her home. An Innovative Basement Authority specialist determined that the musty smells were due to high humidity in the homeowner's crawl space.

Solution

The Innovative team worked quickly to repair the homeowner's crawl space to achieve the goal of restoring clean and healthy air to the home by lowering crawl space humidity. The crew buried drain tile to take care of water issues the homeowner was having. They then installed a SafeDri Pro to pump out water and encapsulated the crawl space with a CrawlSeal to prevent moisture from passing through your floors or walls. Finally, they installed an door to completely seal off air that might leak into the lower level, allowing the homeowner to breathe easy once again.

The homeowner was very pleased with the job and noticed that her allergies flared up a lot less in the week since the job's completion. She also looks forward to low energy bills and fresh air for her daycare children.
