The main problem with crawl spaces for many homeowners in Illinois is that they are "out-of-sight, out-of-mind."
Many homeowners know their crawl space is nasty, so they never go down there. What they don't know, however, is that too little attention given to crawl spaces can lead to poor crawl space performance, making them prone to moisture, mold and heat loss in the entire house.
Your house is one building. It operates as a system. You can't have one part of the building that is sick, and another part that is healthy. You can't rationalize that you never go in the crawl space so you aren't affected by it. Why? Simple. Air mixing.
The crawl space air is in your building envelope. It gets upstairs in one of two ways - the stack effect, or the HVAC system through your ducts. You are breathing it. In fact we know that 1/3 to 1/2 of the air that you breathe on the first floor of your house comes though your crawl space. A crawl space open to the outdoor air also costs more to heat and cool.
So, fixing your crawl space is one home repair you can't afford not to make.
Basement Systems is proud to offer their customers the patented CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System.

Comment: A water under the house has caused the insulation under the floor in the crawl space to come loose, fall down. I need to clean in the crawl space in order to find the water leak, then to hire someone to repair the water leak, perhaps install a whole new water line from house to the water meter at the back alley. The crawl space is covered with sheet plastic and the ground there is uneven, where someone has dug trenches to install some line or other in the distant past. It is a mess. I am 82, and can barely go through the access hole in the utility floor. I am trying to enlarge it, and am almost finished except a couple floor jacks to support the one floor joist I need to remove, about 2 feet of it to enlarge the access opening. Long story, but that is the way it is.

Comment: Iv got craw space problems... I assume I need to do an encapsulation. I've got wet insulation from condensation and probably some mold. I've got fans under there right now trying to get rid of the moisture from these last few hot days and plan on getting rid of the wet insulation. I would like to get an estimate
