CleanSpace Encapsulation Protects Milton, NH Crawlspace
While living in Milton, NH, this homeowner had recently begun to notice a musty smell throughout their home. Unsure how to put an end to this problem themselves, the homeowner sought a solution online. After finding TC Hafford Basement Systems, they called us to set up their free estimate. We dispatched our sales representative and were able to go over what the problem was and what we could do to fix it with this homeowner. Water had been leaking into their crawlspace, causing the musty smell in the home. They soon gave us the go-ahead to get started on solving their problem.
When our installation crew arrived at the home, they moved to the crawlspace right away to begin work on giving this home a proper vapor barrier. First, a Drainage Matting was laid across the floor of the space. This mat sits just off the surface of the floor and has many small holes throughout itself. This creates channels for the water to follow once the vapor barrier is finished, allowing the water to exit the space. Next, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the interior of the crawlspace. The CleanSpace, covering all of the walls, as well as the floor, will lock out moisture trying to enter the interior of the crawlspace in the future. This blocked water will then flow out of the space draining down back through the ground below.
With their completed vapor barrier in place, this homeowner no longer needs to live with a musty smell in their home from the moisture build-up. The CleanSpace installation will keep any leaking water at bay for years to come!
