BRS Pros did a variety of services to get Bob’s condo crawlspace back in tip top shape:
- Due to the amount of water intrusion we installed approximately 115 feet of our Hydra Channel dewatering system. We consider the Hydra-Channel the modern French Drain! Saving the consumer on both labor and material costs – not to mention removing storm water up to 70% faster than the traditional French Drain! To install the Hydra-Channel our crew dug a clean trench along the front and left interior walls of the crawlspace foundation block wall/footer. The Hydra-Channel is then installed in the trench and connected to a new sump pump/basin combo. The Hydra-Channel system carries a five year transferable warranty to prevent water on top of the ground liner.
- Once the drain system was properly installed we then covered the ground with a 15 mil vapor barrier / moisture barrier. This liner is perfect for walking on and storing on. Our woven ground and wall liners are also antibacterial and proven not to off-gas! The premium ground liner was nailed/sealed approximately 6 to 12″ above the ground to the foundation wall. We leave some space in order for a pest company to be able to conduct a termite inspection. This ground liner serves to control the moisture vapor and dampness from the ground.
- We also made the crawlspace RADON READY! A radon piping system was installed below the ground liner. This piping system can be used in the future if the home is tested for radon gas and requires a complete radon system.
- Along with the vapor barrier we also installed an Aprilaire 1820 dehumidifier in order to control the moisture in the crawlspace. This model will remove up to 70 pints of moisture per day! This dehumidifier is proudly made in the USA and comes with a 5 year manufactures warranty. With dehumidifier installations we like to install a Hygrometer. This is a remote temperature and relative humidity meter stand alone unit with one remote sensor. The wireless remote sensor was mounted in Bob’s crawl space to give him an accurate reading of relative humidity. This product will help Bob monitor the effective humidity of his dehumidifier in the crawl space without having to go down and look!
It was a pleasure helping Bob make his home healthy, safe, and happy! Bob left us 5 Star Google Review!”
