Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Sorority House in Starkville, MS!
During the routine yearly maintenance of this sorority house, the owners noticed just how damp and disgusting the crawlspace had become. Mold had even begun to grow!! The house owners immediately decided to call Redeemers Group. Both of these problems needed to be immediately taken care of, not only for the safety of the sorority members, but also for the long-term safety of the building.
The Redeemers Group Team proposed that the best decision for this sorority house would be to completely redo the crawlspace, with Redeemers Group “My Crawlspace” technology. This involved multiple steps. The first being encapsulating the entire crawlspace with Cleanspace, which is essential for preventing excess moisture from entering the space and causing mold growth. The second step was to add a dehumidifier to the crawl space, which helps maintain a healthy moisture level and improve the air quality inside the home. Next, crawl space drains and sump pumps were installed to remove any water that was in the crawl space to eliminate damage from flooding and moisture build up. The final step was to use Redeemers Group newest option for mold control, Watson Seal’s, LumberKote. LumberKote™ is specifically designed to directly coat the entire floor framing system including floor joists, subflooring, rim band, sill plate, and girder beams, without the need for any fungal pre-treatment. The system from Watson Seal provides superior protection from moisture, moisture-related damage, and wood destroying mold, and fungus, adding years to your floor framing system.
