Green Factor Insulation Case Studies: Crawlspace Encapsulation Project

Wednesday, July 17th, 2019 by William Loy

Challenge

This Topeka, KS split-level home built over 50 years ago was suffering from an Unconditioned Crawlspace that had standing water, years of Mold Growth and an Insufficient Drainage system/Foundation Air Sealing, which in turn was causing a musty smell throughout a majority of the home.


The Project Goal was to convert the Crawlspace into a Conditioned Space that would eliminate the moisture that was causing Mold Growth and the prevalent unpleasant musty smell within the home.

Solution

Upon a thorough assessment of the home's Crawlspace, our Home Comfort & Energy Efficiency Specialist (Clint Livingston), had recommended one of our comprehensive Crawlspace Encapsulation packages to properly address and resolve the issues that plagued the homeowners for years.

 

This is brief outline of the scope of work included:

1. Remove and Dispose of Existing Moldy/Damaged Batt Insulation from Crawlspace Ceiling

2. Apply Mold Removal Treatment Solution to Crawlspace Ceiling and Walls

3. Install Crawlspace Irrigation Drainage system w/Sump Pump

4. Install Vapor Encapsulation Barrier to Crawlspace Floor and Walls

5. Install Closed Cell Spray Foam to Crawlspace Walls and Rim Joists

 

Since the completion of Green Factor Insulation's Crawlspace Encapsulation package, the home owner has sung many praises regarding the work completed.

 

Stephanie H. of Topeka, KS -

"It has been great not worrying about everything being underwater or having to endure the moldy smell. That in itself makes it worth it."

"Your guys have been clean, very professional and polite."

"I'll be calling you for insulation in the attic!"

From all of us here at Green Factor Insulation, we would like to thank Stephanie for granting us the opportunity to resolve her Home Comfort issues and create peace of mind for her and her loved ones. Thank you Stephanie for being the best part of The Green Factor Insulation Family.
