Problem: This home had a crawl space that was damp and musty. This undesirable crawl space air makes its way throughout the entire house in what’s known as the Stack Effect. The moist environment caused the fiberglass insulation to become ineffectual and saturated with water. These homeowners also needed some help with debris removal.
Solution: We encapsulated the damp dirt floor with our heavy duty CleanSpace crawl space vapour barrier liner (strong enough to walk on and store items upon!).

Our team installed the CleanSpace® Crawl Space Vapor Barrier: a super durable 20-mil poly-reinforced liner. Now this clean and dry crawl space is a usable storage area and a healthier environment!
