A homeowner in Herndon, VA wanted to reduce the chances of mold and humidity in their crawl space area. This crawl space was vented, like most homes in our area, and the vents let warm humid air in which is cooled by the subterranean crawl space. This causes relative humidity to go way up and condensation to form all over the crawl space surfaces including floor joists and ducts. Then mold can grow, wood will rot, and musty odors can appear. To address this, Comfenergy sealed up the vents and a dimpled plastic drainage matting is installed on the floor to create a thermal break. A heavy duty liner, CleanSpace, is installed across the floor over the matting and up the walls. Finally closed cell spray foam is installed on the walls to the top of the rim joist.
A homeowner in Purcellville, VA had chronic water infiltration in her basement. This caused mold to grow, because the humidity levels in the basement were consistently over 60% for long periods of time. Mold can cause asthma like symptoms and allergies. Comfenergy crews came in and cleaned up the mold and the wet basement. Then, we took action to make sure it didn't come back by installing a perimeter basement waterproofing system including a new Super Sump Plus.
Homeowners in Bluemont, VA were experiencing mildew smells and high humidity. Their allergies were flaring up because of this. 3 Pros Basement Systems alleviated these issues. We controlled the humidity coming in by removing all of the existing insulation, sealed up the sump basin, and installed our CleanSpace wall system. We then dehumidified the basement further by installing our Sedona dehumidifier.
This Boyce,VA homeonwer was looking for a healthier, cleaner home with less mildew odors. Comfenergy found the biggest issue was the damp crawl space beneath the home. The crawl space was encapsulated using dimple matting, TerraBlock insulation, CleanSpace vapor barrier, and a beautiful Smart Sump Pump.

This set of photos is from a partially sub-terranean window that has been allowing water into the home for a long time. You can see that is was once a mess and the home owner tried an exterior quick fix, but the second photo shows the window after being waterproofed. Not only was the window waterproofed but so was the rest of the basement which you can find a full series of photos of in our gallery.
