Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Humidity Lowered in Brooklyn Crawl Space
The owner of this home in Brooklyn, NY had a musty crawl space. The smell was unhealthy and bothersome. He was interested in a dehumidifier and sealing the crawl space off from outdoor elements. Quality 1st Basement Systems is the crawl space specialist for Brooklyn, New York.
Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a SaniDry dehumidifier in this crawl space. The SaniDry dehumidifier is self-draining and energy efficient. It is rated by Energy star, ensuring that it is also good for the enviornment. The SaniDry filters air and removes mold spores, dust mite droppings, and takes out moisture from the air. This moisture is pumped out of the crawl space, away from the home. Many other dehumidifiers require manual draining. Draining a dehumidifier is time consuming, and who wants to crawl into a crawl space? Quality 1st Basement Systems also sealed off the crawl space with CleanSpace vapor barrier. CleanSpace is a durable, waterproof plastic lining. It is installed on the floor and walls of the crawl space, keeping out moisture, humidity, pests, and dirt. On the rim joists in the crawl space, the crew insulated it with waterproof crawl space insulation. This crawl space is now warm, capable of storing items, and has a low humidity. The pesky odor is now gone and the crawl space is dry.
