Mold & Humidity Prevention Before & After Photos

Greensboro, NC – Damp Crawl Space Causing Mold & Wood Rot

Exposed dirt in the crawl space was causing the floor system of this Greensboro, NC home to be taken over by mold and mildew. The water vapor rising from the ground for an extended period of time had caused wood rot on the organic beams.

Tar Heel Basement Systems prevented further damage to the floor system by installing the 20mil CrawlSeal Encapsulation System. The liner contains antimicrobial properties, preventing mold growth on the plastic. The home is now completely separated from the damp, dirt floor below.

Jamestown, NC – Crawl Space Transformation

The previous, faulty materials were replaced with X-Grade Crawl Space Insulation, CrawlSeal 20mil. liner and the Tar Heel Dehumidifier. The crawl space was transformed into a bright, dry and conditioned space that benefits the home’s overall indoor air quality.
