Case Studies: Atlanta Crawl Space with Humidity and Foundation Problems
Not only was this crawlspace having humidity issues, but it was also experiencing many problems with its foundation. The space had a very musty smell and appeared to be extremely damp. The crawlspace was also very dirty and had an open vent. Vents in crawlspaces should typically be sealed off at all times.
AquaGuard first addressed the crawlspace humidity and drainage issues. First, AquaGuard removed all of the debris from the space. Next, we installed CleanSpace drain matting on the floor and the columns in the space. To battle the high humidity, a Sanidry CX was installed. A Sanidry is the most efficient dehumidifier AquaGuard can place in a crawlspace. A SmartSump pump was also installed to capture and drain the water out of the crawlspace. IceGuard and LawnScape attach to the SmartSump, but are used to drain the water out and away from the home. One final renovation we made to this crawlspace was the sealing of the vents.
