If your house has a crawl space, it is imperative to keep it dry and free from humidity. A damp crawl space is the perfect upbringing ground for mold and mildew.
Furthermore, it could be an invitation to termites, not to mention other vermin that like the dark and damp spaces such as snakes, rats, spiders, and other unwanted guests. So So When your crawl space does become damp, you will need to encapsulate it!
Our client from Hemmingford was interested in our encapsulation system, because he felt that the air in his crawl space was very wet. In addition, the customer seemed to want to sell the house, so he wanted a solution that would solve the problem of moisture and that would not scare away potential buyers.
So we proposed a complete encapsulation solution with our products specially designed by engineers for the crawl space.
We have installed our patented CleanSpace vapor barrier membrane. The CleanSpace membrane is composed of 7 layers of treated polyethylene in which an antibacterial additive is added. The membrane is finally treated with an ultra-violet additive in order to extend its resistance and its life span as long as possible.

Water in your home's crawl space is very annoying. Water leakage or even just ever-present moisture in the air can create mold problems that lead to chronic health issues for your family.
In addition, water in a crawl space can lead to rot and decay that weaken structural members and make major architectural repairs necessary. The presence of moisture can also foster termites, carpenter ants, and other pests that can damage your home and affect your quality of life.
We have encapsulated this house in Hemmingford, Qc by installing our products, from the SmartSump pump to make sure that the water leaking in gets to it instead of ponding.
This pump is made for crawl spaces with a high quality, 1/3 horsepower zoeller cast iron pump, and an automatic float switch. In addition, this pump is compatible with the vapor barrier systems.
So as for covering the wet walls and exposed earth, we installed the patented CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system, which is a very heavy duty material that has an anti-microbial ingredient molded into the material to resist mold and bacteria growth.
As a result, our client was very happy he could save a lot on his electricity bills.
In addition, the air circulating in the house is now fully dry and does not smell bad as before.
In order to dry off a wet basement, you must begin by determining the cause. Common explanations include the infiltration of surface water, infiltration of groundwater, or air with unusually high moisture content.
So when our client from Hemmingford contacted us, our specialist went to his home and recommended a waterproofing system consisting of an interior drainage system’the Waterguard’ and a SuperSump pump system.
So we dug the ground and installed the WaterGuard interior drain in this perimeter. This allows all incoming water to be redirected to the pump no matter what level this water is coming from.
And finaly all drainage was connected to the SuperSump pump system.
The SuperSump system contains a Zoeller pump, a 96-hole liner to allow water into the floor to enter the liner, an airtight lid that prevents water vapor from escaping, and an alarm system that alerts you when the water shows too high.
This house is now fully waterproofed and our client is very happy with the results!
Today building scientists recommend that crawl spaces must be sealed or “encapsulated” to prevent problems caused by crawl space moisture. The encapsulation process involves completely isolating the crawl space interior from damp exterior conditions.
