Expert Crawl Space Services
Crawl space cleaning helps create a healthier indoor air quality for your home. Cleaning and follow-up encapsulation are critical when you have had rodents living under the floor of your home. Unfortunately, rodents and other animals will defecate and urinate wherever they live. Getting those areas cleaned and the rodents and insects out prepares the crawl space for encapsulation.
Here are the techniques Houseman Services uses in crawl space cleaning and encapsulation:
Soda Blast Cleaning
Soda blast cleaning is a compressed air cleaning technique similar to sandblasting. However, this process is much gentler and cleaner. It involves using air pressure to blow baking soda particles against the surface that needs cleaning.
Bleach and scrub treatments aren’t 100% successful in removing all mold. Also, bleaching produces hazardous fumes and overspray. That is where soda blasting comes in handy. Baking soda absorbs unpleasant odors, including mold and mildew. What’s more, it can help prevent mold from returning.
Mold Resistant Sealer Clear Coat
Once we remove the mold and treat the area, we can seal the space. Our clear coat provides a flexible, crack-resistant, water-resistant finish. This product works well on various surfaces, including wood, painted surfaces, wallboard, masonry surfaces, and metal.
The Houseman Services Crawl Space Encapsulation Team will apply the mold-resistant sealer coat by hand or with an airless spray system.
Crawl Space Insulation Removal
Once rodents, insects, mold, and mildew have spread throughout your crawl space, you can bet the insulation is contaminated. Get that filthy crawl space insulation out with Houseman Services.
Crawl space insulation removal is a multi-step process. Once removed, our team can bag the old insulation and take it out from under your home.
The crawl space beneath your home is vulnerable to high humidity. This moisture contributes to mold problems, pest infestations, structural damage, and even allergy symptoms for you and your family members. A dehumidifier is an effective solution for controlling humidity in your crawl space. Additionally, the dehumidifier prevents excess moisture from entering your main living area.
Dehumidification is a valuable part of the crawl space cleaning process. Let Houseman Services take care of dehumidifier installation for your home or business.
Professional Crawl Space Encapsulation
Now that the crawl space is cleaned, sealed, and dehumidified, it is time to encapsulate the area. Stop moisture from passing through your floors and porous concrete walls for good with a crawl space vapor barrier installed by Houseman Services.
A crawl space vapor barrier should be installed to encapsulate the crawl space foundation completely. Then, sealing your crawl space vents can stop the cycle of cold, humidity, and moisture entering from the outside air. Installing a durable liner allows for service members to use the space without damage while transforming your crawl space into usable storage space.
Our vapor barrier is a crisp white, poly-reinforced liner that is mold-resistant. Together this barrier and the newly cleaned space will ensure your crawl space’s moisture levels are kept in check and pests are kept out.
