In Dagsboro, Delaware a home owner called DryZone to come out and inspect their crawl space. When we got to the home, and went down into the crawl space we immediately noticed that the old insulation was falling down. We installed new insulation and placed down a clean and new CleanSpace Liner. Now the insulation is protected from the wet, damp dirt floor and the crawl space is clean and dry.
A lightweight, 6-mil plastic liner is just not strong enough to seal out moisture and humidity in a damp crawl space. Every wet and nasty crawl space needs a quality vapor barrier to protect the wood, building materials, and insulation. Moisture raises the humidity and that leads to rot and mold much quicker than most people expect. If you have allergies, or notice that you get headaches a lot, the crawl space might be a factor.
A well surrounding a crawl space door is added protection from water and debris entering the crawl space. Additionally, a well will help keep water away from the crawl space door by draining the area.

Crawl spaces can be home to a number of allergens and dust mites that cause sickness. For this homeowner, he noticed one too many times his wife would get cold and flu-like symptoms throughout the year. Even when pollen levels were low, she was always sick. After taking a look in the crawl space, this homeowner noticed there was a lot of dampness in the air and microbial growth underneath their bedroom. He knew something had to be done to keep his wife healthy.
After a free inspection, the DryZone design specialist saw falling insulation and spots growing in the floorboards. To reduce moisture, a thick vapor barrier and dehumidifier were added to control the environment.
After noticing a musy smell in her home, this Dagsboro homeowner knew something was wrong in her home. When she took a look around, she noticed her crawlspace vents were open and water was present.
A DryZone representative came to the home and noticed some wet and hanging insulation as well as a thin plastic vapor barrier. After removing the debris, DryZone installed a thick CleanSpace to protect the foundation and a dehumidifier to control the climate underneath the home. Once they were installed, vent covers were added to ensure water and any pests were unable to enter the crawlspace. Not only does the home smell better, but is now protected from further water damage.
There are some things in life that shouldn't be put off. This homeowner knew that not having their crawlspace dealt with would affect his whole home sooner or later.
With a call to DryZone, he found out that he had a lot more moisture than what is normal and that it was starting to create mold on the wood underneath his home.
We encapsulated his crawlspace with CleanSpace crawlspace liner, installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier and installed a TripleSafe sump pump to collect all that water and send it out of the crawlspace for good!
The homeowners of this basement in Dagsboro expereinced water in their basement each time it rained. The had to wait until their small sump pump was able to pump out the nearly 3-4 inches of water. Leaving them with a musty basement smell and a huge headache.
Enough was enough, and they made the call to DryZone. After the inspection we suggested long term fixes to address and control the water. First, we needed to install WaterGuard. This will allow the water that is entering the basement to find its way to the sump pump without entering in to the basement and onto the floor.
The next step was to install a new SuperSump. A SuperSump includes a powerful Zoeller ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of the basement.
These solutions will allow for the basement to be dry, all of the time!
