Location: Middleburgh Heights, OH 44130

Problem: Homeowner called with concerns about a musty odor that was in their house they purchased a year ago. AdvantaClean of the West Side did air sampling and a thorough inspection of the property. We found the vapor barrier in the crawlspace had large holes in it which was allowing moist air to allow mold to grow on the floor joists of the crawl space. The ground under the ground was moist and creating the musty smell which was causing the smell and elevated mold spore levels in the living area directly above the crawlspace.

Solution: AdvantaClean of the West Side determined that the best way to address the issue was to do a complete encapsulation of the crawl space. We started by doing a complete mold remediation which included removing the existing vapor barrier and insulation. Once the mold was remediated we leveled the crawl space floor and installed drainage matting. We then installed 6-mil poly to the walls and 20-mil poly over the drainage matting. We sealed all of the crawlspace vents to ensure that no outside air could enter the space. Lastly, we installed a dehumidifier that will drain into the existing sump pump and replaced the insulation.
