Taylor contacted us about some water issues in his large crawl space.
Basement & Radon Solutions, BRS Pros did quite a bit of work for Taylor. This is how it went…1. Mold Remediation: Removal of all fungus/mold contaminated sub-floor insulation and moisture vapor barrier from crawl space and dispose to landfill. Crawl space sub-floor wood components were cleaned and deodorized for wood decaying fungi and organic growth. After cleaning an EPA registered fungicide is completely fogged throughout the crawl space. It will kill 99.9% of mold spores and will inhibit the growth of mold and mildew.2. Installed a French Drain: Install French drain perimeter of the crawl space slab (excluding right of laundry room) after removing existing failed drain system. The French drain consists of a 4 plastic water channel and 3/4″ washed stone. The French drain system will be connected to our sealed sump pump/basin in the crawl space. Then, the discharge was extended to the exterior on the left side of home. The drain was then connected to the ice cop, 3 inch drain, and a bubbler pot.3.The Sump Pump: Installed the GrateSump basin with a removable (flush with floor) lid covered with stone in the left front corner of the concrete pad (as looking at the front door). The system includes a 1/3 HP cast iron primary pump with a dual float cage that protects debris from the float. Included is a deluxe controller that monitors the pump and power conditions. It will sound an alarm if problems are detected or a high water warning in the sump pump. Additionally, it activates the pump weekly to exercise and extend the pumps life.4. A Radon Pipe: A 4″ suction pipe was installed. In the event the home is tested for radon in the future and found to be elevated, this component will be used with the additional exterior radon system to correct radon levels.5. Installing our liners: Installed 9-mil white 100% woven reinforced liner on the foundation wall. The wall liner will be mechanically fastened/sealed to the foundation walls.Installed our Premium (walk on, store on) 15-mil white 100% woven reinforced liner. The premium ground liner was nailed/sealed approximately 6″ to 12″ above the ground to the foundation wall. 15-mil woven ground liner will control moisture vapor and dampness from the ground.Our woven ground and wall liners are antibacterial, meaning mold and other organic growth will not grow to our liner.6. Insulation: Installed our 2″ thick (R-13) Thermax rigid closed cell insulation over the foundation wall liner. Class A fire-rated. The THERMAX rigid insulation was mechanically fastened to the foundation wall and the crawl space door to insulate the perimeter exterior walls.7. Lastly, we installed a Hygrometer: A remote temperature and relative humidity meter stand alone unit with one remote sensor. The wireless remote sensor was mounted in Taylor’s crawl space to give them an accurate reading of relative humidity.It was a pleasure helping Taylor make his home happy, healthy, and safe!”
