Musty smells in the living room were the topic of the conversation when we received a call from a homeowner in Nashville, Tennessee. The complaints were about a mysterious, mildew like odor that had been growing stronger over a period of time. The members of the family had decided they had enough. Through a little research, they discovered that there is a link between musty smells and a crawl space that is in need of humidity control.
Our local Barrier Waterproofing team came out to perform a FREE evaluation on the crawl space. It was important to determine just how much humidity might be accumulating and the extent of any damage that may already have been done. Upon entering, the impact of the presence of mold and mildew was very strong.
Mold growth was visible among many of the floor joists, and some had already begun to suffer from slight deterioration.
The team went through and removed the mold, reinforced the unhealthy beams, and encapsulated the crawl space with a vapor barrier lining. Insulation boards were installed that would hold the outside moisture at bay. Lastly, a dehumidifier unit was installed to ensure the crawl space remain at optimal humidity levels throughout the year.
