Musty Smell in Home Cleared with Crawlspace Encapsulation in Winston Salem, NC

This home in Winston Salem had a damp and musty crawlspace with falling insulation and bugs. The homeowner wad mostly concerned about the musty odor that was coming into her home from the crawlspace. Tar Heel Basement Systems did a full renovation on her crawlspace by replacing the failing insulation with X-Grade Crawl Space Insulation. The old dingy plastic was removed, the vents were closed and the 20 mil. thick CrawlSeal vapor barrier was installed. Lastly, the crew hooked up our commercial grade Tar Heel dehumidifier.

This new and improved crawlspace no longer has an odor that permeates into the upstairs. In fact, the space can now be used for storage all year long.
