How do we do it?

cleanup

As with any crawl space related project, the first step will be to clean things up. Crawl spaces are usually the most neglected areas of any home, and there will often be debris and damaged insulation that needs to be removed. We’ll also level the soil or gravel, take care of any mold or pests, and generally make sure everything is ready for system installation.

Drain and Dry

Your WhiteCap contactor should address any standing water or water seepage issues and a sump pump or drainage system may be advised before encapsulation. A base layer of drainage matting is then applied. This is the best way to maintain an air gap between the earth and the top layer of the WhiteCap Liner. Then “dry-in” begins, as the WhiteCap Vapor Barrier is installed and outside vents are sealed, cutting off the elements that cause poor indoor air quality.

dehumidify

After the work is completed, it’s important to regulate and maintain the relative humidity in the space. A quality, commercial grade, compact dehumidifier can remove 70-155 pints of moisture per day. These units not only make the home more comfortable, they also filter out pollen, spores, and other particulates, improving overall indoor air quality.
