Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Musty Crawl Space Sealed in Vergas, MN

Monday, January 11th, 2021 by Kal Aldrich


Water seepage through crawl space walls and floors can be a problem in many houses. If it is left untreated, the crawl space can be damaged by mold, wood rot, and pests. Along with that, moisture that invades the crawl space through the soil and vents can damage insulation and can lead to mold growth and wood rot. 

A resident in Vergas, MN was experiencing these exact problems in their crawl space, but they did not want to go about the repairs on their own. They went on HomeAdvisor and came across American Waterworks and our crawl space repair products. They also saw that we provide free estimates, so they got in contact with our office staff and scheduled a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist. Our Design Specialist crawled into their crawl space, diagnosed everything, and drew up the solution of our CleanSpace Encapsulation Moisture Barrier. The homeowner got all of their questions answered about the product and felt confident in our services, so they moved forward with the project.


Our Foreman and his production team started the project by clearing out all of the debris out of the crawl space. Once that was completed, then our team installed our CleanSpace Moisture Barrier around the entire crawl space perimeter. This special moisture barrier controls rot and mold, it saves money on energy bills, keeps away pests, prevents rotten odors, and it provides additional storage to the home. The project took two days, and the homeowner was happy they were able to use their crawl space again!
