Rotting Crawl Space Support Posts Cause Sagging Floors in Marine City, MI

These homeowners in Marine City, MI contacted HomeSpec because their floors were sagging. Their mobile home sat on a crawl space and we suspected faulty support posts were leading to the saggy floors since we see it often. 

Sure enough, during the inspection, rusting and rotting posts were discovered. It's crucial to have sturdy support in the crawl space to prevent issues like this from occurring and worsening. So to solve this problem, our crew replaced the posts with our SmartJack Support Posts to raise and level the floors above. 

The homeowner also wanted the crawl space encapsulated, so we sealed the walls and floor with the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to keep it as healthy as possible. 

Now their floors are no longer sagging and their crawl space is dry and clean!

Marine City, MI Home's Main Beam Compromised by Mold, HomeSpec Installs Reinforcements

A family in Marine City, MI was renting their home to another family member. This tennant had gone into the crawl space and quickly became aware of a burst pipe along one of the walls. There were puddles throughout the crawl space and the insulation had been damaged as well. The family wanted to have the home evaluated by a professional for things like mold and wood damage. They reached out to HomeSpec Waterproofing and Foundation Repair to get this process started.

One of the senior project managers, Zach, inspected the entirety of the crawl space and returned to the family. He shared the unfortunate news that the mold had compromised the integrity of the wood in the crawl space, including the main beam. The family was alarmed by this information and prepared to have it handled immediately. Zach suggested HomeSpec get rid of the mold using Mold-X2. He also suggested that instead of replacing the damaged beam, HomeSpec install a steel beam along side the wooden one and use steel SmartJack® support posts to reinforce the home. The family accepted this proposal and they were happy with the decision as soon as the work was completed.

Homeowner Has Crawl Space Encapsulated for the First Time in 20 Years

A homeowner in Newport, MI had not experienced any issues in their crawl space for over 20 years, until they noticed a musty odor beginning to permeate through the home. Confused as to what could be causing this they reached out to us for a solution. We recommended having their crawlspace encapsulated due to the water rising above level, this was most likely the cause of the musty odor that was spreading throughout the home. 

Grosse Ile, MI Crawl Space Encapsulated with CleanSpace

An unfinished crawl space can cause a ton of problems for homeowners, most notably moisture-related issues. Moisture can cause rot, mold, and other forms of decay, compromising the structural integrity of the home. Additionally, high levels of humidity can create an environment that attracts pests such as termites, rodents, and insects. Not only does this pose a health risk for the occupants of the home, but it can also make it difficult to sell the property in the future.

When our crew recommended the The CleanSpace Encapsulation system and SaniDry Sedona to help solve these moisture problems, the homeowners were more than happy to get the work started. The CleanSpace Encapsulation system involves installing a heavy-duty liner to the floor and walls of the crawl space, creating an impermeable barrier that prevents water and moisture from seeping in. The SaniDry Sedona, on the other hand, is a dehumidifier that helps control the level of humidity within the crawl space. The combination of these two systems helps create a dry, healthy, and pest-free environment in the crawl space, ensuring the longevity of the home and the family's health.
