Water in a Crawl Space in St. Michaels
This homeowner in St. Michaels recently purchased their home and discovered that over a foot of water in their crawl space. They had used DryZone in the past, so they knew where to turn. After the inspection it turned out that their existing sump pump had failed.

CleanSpace Crawl Space
This homeowner contacted DryZone knowing that they had an issue with their crawl space. Years of moisture in the crawl space had caused the insulation to fall. What thy didn’t know was the extent the damage the moisture had on their crawl space. The inspection took place in October, a month with relatively low humidity, In their crawl space the humidity levels were over 70. This is a perfect breeding ground for mold and is the reason their insulation was falling. Going into the winter months, the failing insulation on their floor would have provided little warmth an comfort and could cause higher heating bills. This homeowner knew they needed to take action and make a change. Instead of keeping the existing insulation or putting up new fiberglass insulation, the homeowner made the switch to SilverGlo insulation. This will keep the crawl space at the same temperature as the inside of the house - without heating or cooling the crawlspace. It will also make sure heat doesn’t leave the home through the floors. These homeowner also encapsulated their crawl space with CleanSpace - keeping it dry and clean for years to come. They also knew that they needed to replace their old sump pump with a new SmartSump and IceGuard.

During our inspection we noticed some pretty surprising issues. The homeowner was right about the insulation! They needed to have all of it removed, due to mold. As well the homeowners need to have their vents blocked and sealed with the addition of an EverLast Door to prevent any more critters from making their crawl space a home. Another issue that was detected was that their sump pumps were just buckets with a small pump inside. In order to correct this major mistake the homeowners opted for the TripleSafe Sump Pump. This will keep their crawlspace dry ALL THE TIME. Encapsulating their crawl space and creating a dry environment that will make sure their home is safe and healthy for years and years to come! 
Crawl Space at the Beach
This crawl space in Dewey Beach was a mess. The open, vented crawl space allowed moisture to enter the space and critters. They noticed mold growing and were growing increasingly concerned. Although they knew they had to do something and knew about encapsulation they were not sure how to do this in a flood zone.  DryZone was able to show them that their crawl space can still be encapsulated and close the vents off keeping humid air out. But allow the crawl space to drain when high waters invaded the area during hurricanes and nor’easters, something that the mid-atlantic knows happens every year.  The homeowners had DryZone install SmartVents. These will allow flood waters to recede but come with the option to close the vents of the crawl space. In addition to the SmartVents the homeowners also made sure to update their sump pump, add a dehumidifier, and instal drainage matting and CleanSpace. This will help to protect their home year round!
