Some homes are simply more prone to having wet and muddy crawl spaces which can be the result of many factors:
- High water table
- Located near a natural spring
- Improper grading around the home
- Downspouts are draining too close to the home
- Clogged or damaged weeping tiles
While it’s always best to fix the cause of the problem, often it’s simply beyond the control of the homeowner.
A wet crawl space can wreak havoc on a home: damaging the structure, causing mould growth and allergens to flourish as well as unnecessary heating and cooling costs. In situations where a crawl space is naturally wet, our products work together for a permanent solution (with regular maintenance of course!) and our crawl space sump pump system is often recommended.
We installed the SmartSump™ Crawl Space Sump Pump System – a sump pump specifically designed for crawl space. A fantastic feature is that any water from a plumbing leak must first pass by a built-in alarm in the system, and will then drain down into the sump. The alarm will sound so you know you have a plumbing problem in your crawl space!
We completely encapsulated the crawl space, including the supports with our super heavy-duty CleanSpace vapour barrier.
Because this home has a naturally wet crawl space, we also installed our SaniDry™ Sedona Dehumidifier. The SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier is the world's most efficient, high-performance dehumidifier - it drains automatically into the newly installed sump pump system and has a humidity sensor that monitors the air, so once it's installed, there's nothing else to do (but yearly maintenance of course!).
