Here you can see that sister joists were added to the existing floor joists to reinforce and add support to the structure.
The white tint to the rest of the floor boards is evidence of the Mold Remediation that was done to eliminate existing and prevent future mold growth.
The white encapsulation is our CleanSpace Liner that is designed to prevent moisture and create a safe crawl space environment.
A crawl space vapor barrier, by its very nature, resists the passage of air. By stopping air movement from the ground, it can also turn your crawl space into a semi-conditioned space - one that is close to the temperature of the living spaces in the rest of your home. When that occurs, your floors feel much warmer in the cold winter and your energy bills go down.
In addition to blocking moisture from the home, a vapor barrier can also slow most of the movement of harmful gases, such as radon, from the soil. Coupled with an effective radon mitigation system (in the event that radon is present in higher than acceptable levels) a vapor barrier can reduce radon levels in the home.
Mold growing inside a house can have a disastrous impact on the health of everyone living there, as it can produce allergens, irritants and even toxins. We provided this customer with a Mold Remediation that will remove all mold and prevent mold growth in the future, giving them peace of mind about the absence of dangerous molds in their crawlspace.
We also provided structural support with the installation of Sister Floor Joists to strengthen their floor. We finished with the installation of a Sump Pump, CleanSpace Liner to give our customer a dry, clean, safe crawlspace that they can be confident in.
