A homeowner in Palm Bay, Florida contacted us because she was interested in encapsulating the damp and dirty crawl space under her home. This was causing a musty smell in her living space and she was concerned about mold.
We scheduled a time for one of our inspectors to visit this customer and inspect her crawl space. He told her that we could seal it off by using the CrawlSeal vapor barrier. This is a 20-millimeter thick plastic liner that is comparable to pool liner. This is made of several layers, including an anti-microbial material, that prevent dirt, moisture, germs, and pests from entering the crawl space.
Our inspector also noticed a spot where the home's floor was sagging above the crawl space. He determined this could be mended using a IntelliJack. This is a specialized jack that was designed and patented for use in up-holding floors about crawl spaces.
The homeowner agreed to have the work done and is very happy with the results.
