Learn More About Crawl Space Encapsulation

Many homes across the nation are built over crawl spaces. The spaces are a haven for mold and wood-decaying fungi to thrive. Then you added that fact the snakes, mice, and insects of every type including termites love dark, cool and wet places like this and you quickly realize this isn’t a place you want to work in. Builders make matters even worse by jamming the homes HVAC system in many of these crawl spaces. The moisture from groundwater causes the crawl space to flood and the open vents allow humid air to get trapped in it and ruin the HVAC system. The only way to fix this situation is to waterproof the area with a drainage system and then seal the area off from the elements and install a dehumidifier. Only after that will you moisture problems be solved in the long run.

HydroHero is recognized as the leader in crawl space encapsulation in Delaware, Maryland and across the nation and for good reason. Check out all of our videos on our YouTube Channel and on our Facebook pages. See the transformations we post from beginning to end. Then ask why our competitors aren’t doing the same. We’ll tell you why they do a lousy job. Time and time again we have to pull out their failed system and redo their work. If you did high-quality work wouldn’t you share it with the world to see? I’m sure you would! Now let’s get into our crawl space repair process.

HydroHero’s Steps fo Sucess:

  • First, we remove any insulation if it has been damaged by moisture or has been contaminated due to mold growth.
  • Then we remove all the mold by HEPA vacuuming, wire brushing, sanding and hand scrubbing the floor joist.
  • After that, we clean the mold off the pipes, wires, HVAC system and everything else located in the crawl space.
  • Once the mold remediation is completed we start installing the drainage system around the perimeter of the foundation next to the footer.
  • Then we install sump pumps as needs and direct the water out and away from the home through pipes installed under your lawn.
  • Then we move on to sealing the foundation vents and sealing any penetrations on the subfloor and the foundation and rim joist.
  • Once that is completed we wrap the pillars and install a vapor barrier in the walls and floor to lock out all of the moisture.
  • Finally, we install a dehumidifier designed for crawl space moisture control, a moisture monitor and then you are finally good to go!

You should never seal and condition a crawl space without installing a crawl space drainage system first. Many times contractors don’t want to do what is hard and what is right because they are worried that may cost them the job. The sad truth is the customer often wasted the money the first time due to water intrusion and the old system has to be removed and a crawl space dewatering system installed to handle the build water causing the flood. Remember, a vapor barrier is designed to stop vapor and is not a dam or drainage system. If you would like to learn more, please call us at 302-321-7077 for more information.
