Taking Out Contaminated Crawl Space Insulation in Freehold, NJ
A new client in Freehold, NJ was in desperate need of new insulation in his crawl space. A short while ago a pipe had burst, which flooded the entire crawl space. The pipe was repaired, but the insulation got saturated. Fortunately, mold didn't develop yet, but if not treated immediately, it's only a matter of time until it does!
The first thing we did was remove all the contaminated insulation from the crawl space and dispose of it properly. Afterward, we wiped down all the joists and installed ComfortTherm® insulation. ComfortTherm® insulation provides excellent temperature and noise control, and comes with a vapor-retarder for use in hot, humid climates. Next, we installed SilverGlo™ on the walls of the crawl space. SilverGlo™ is a waterproof foam insulation that seals the walls from outside moisture and humidity.
Lastly, to control the humidity levels in the crawl space, we installed a Sani-Dry Sedona commercial-grade dehumidifier. The Sedona directs the extracted water pulled out of the air directly into the sump pump and will control the humidity levels in the crawl space.
