Before this crawl space had a wooden cover on the window, the main issue with a wooden cover is that wood is an organic material. This means that the wood will soak up the water instead of blocking it out of the crawl space.
Since the cover wasn't able to keep water out of the crawl space, the walls revealed water stains inside.
This crawl space had no means of protection against water or other harmful outer elements. A vapor barrier should be installed in all crawl spaces to prevent mold, critters, debris, etc. from sneaking inside.
During heavy rains, the floor would turn into mud. Mud can turn a clean space dirty quickly. Critters would also have an easy entrance inside through the muddy floor.
The best way to keep water, critters, and debris out is by installing a CleanSpace encapsulation system. CleanSpace is made out of inorganic material that will seal the space from outer elements that threaten the well-being of the area.
A musty, wet crawl space is every homeowner's nightmare. Luckily, this homeowner, Tami, from Georgetown, Illinois made the call to Woods Basement Systems to keep water, critters, mold, and debris out of her home and outside where they belong. Tami worked with system design specialist, Greg B., who recommended completely sealing the crawl space with an encapsulation system called CleanSpace.
CleanSpace in an inorganic vapor barrier that will not allow water, critters, mold, or debris inside because the technology used to make this system contains water-resistant materials. This way the crawl space is completely blocked and prevented from possible harm. Woods' head foreman of this waterproofing project was Malik J. Malik led his crew to install this encapsulation system so that Tami could utilize her crawl space for extra storage. Now that the crawl space is protected and dry, Tami can use her crawl space!
