A thin, 6mil vapor barrier that was beginning to deteriorate and condensation build up along the duct work and HVAC system was the usual view of this Oak Ridge, NC crawl space. After several attempts of cleaning up mold themselves and finding it returning, the homeowners called Tar Heel Basement Systems to eliminate their moisture problem and preventing the mold from returning.
Tar Heel Basement Systems transformed the damp and moldy space into a dry and healthy area below the home. Removal of the thin vapor barrier and debris allowed for the team to transform the unhealthy area. The 20mil CrawlSeal Encapsulation System completely separated the home from the exposed dirt below and sealed each of the open vents. The Aprilaire self-draining dehumidifier prevents mold growth from returning by keeping humidity levels below 55%.
