Joe contacted us here at BRS Pros, because he was having some moisture problems in his crawl space.
Basement & Radon Solutions, BRS Pros, did some work to fix Joe’s issues and here is how it went…1. First we did a crawl space encapsulation, starting with installing a Thermal Shield Silver 90-Mil Wall Liner. This is a metal foil faced reflective wall liner with a plastic moisture barrier. It is also class A fire rated with a near zero perm rate. 2. We then put in a Dimple Shield heavy duty 20-mil underlayment on the ground below vapor barrier. This protects from puncture/wear and improves water movement. 3. Next, we installed a 15-mil Premium White Reinforced Ground Liner. Along with a radon piping system that will be below the ground liner. The piping system will be used in the future if the home is tested for radon gas and requires a complete radon system. Our 15-mil woven ground liner will control moisture vapor and dampness from the ground.4. Then, we installed an Aprilaire E100 ENERGY STAR Dehumidifier. Aprilaire has been the industry leader in residential humidification control since 1954. This Model E100 Energy Star rated dehumidifier delivers 23% annual energy savings above conventional products. It is a high-capacity solution designed for humidity control in Joe’s crawlspace. It removes up to 95 pints of moisture per day.5. Lastly, we put in a Hygrometer Remote Humidity Sensor. Along with a Relative Humidity Meter stand alone unit, with one remote sensor. The wireless remote sensor was mounted in Joe’s crawl space to give you an accurate reading of relative humidity. This product will help Joe monitor the effective humidity of your dehumidifier in the his crawl space.It was a pleasure helping Joe make his home safe, happy, and healthy!
