Most people don't know much about what goes on in their crawl space. It's a small, dark place that no one wants to venture into. But when awful smells start wafting up from the crawl space and into your home, it's quite alarming. These homeowners in Lexington, Michigan experienced just that.

Because they live near water, their crawl space was very wet and muddy. They had a makeshift "vapor barrier" in place which was actually just some tarps on the ground/walls that were only making the problem worse. With the water and humidity, mold began to grow. This created a foul stench that could be smelled throughout the entire home. Mold comes with many other health concerns, so the homeowners wanted the problem properly taken care of - so they called HomeSpec. 

Most importantly, the mold needed to be removed so we used our Mold-X2 to clean the contaminated surfaces. The crawl space had obvious water issues, but encapsulation alone would not be enough. The crawl space needed a waterproofing system as well - a perimeter drainage system connected to a powerful sump pump. This would control the ground water and funnel it away from the home, preventing a flood.

Then the walls and muddy ground needed to be sealed with a CleanSpace encapsulation system. The vapor barrier blocks water vapor from entering the crawl space and paired with a dehumidifier that controls the humidity in the air, also prevents mold growth and musty smells from occurring. This system includes vent covers to prevent cold air from entering in the winter (and drifting up into the home) and to prevent hot, humid air from entering in the summer (and bringing in moisture).

Job Stories From Lexington, MI
Sagging Floors Repaired with SmartJack Support System in Lexington, MI

A homeowner in Lexington, MI had been noticing the floors in their home sagging for some time. After moving some furniture around and noticing the floors were unable to support the weight like they used to, they decided it was time for a fix. Initially concerned this may affect the property value and fearful of a larger problem with the home, they were referred by a colleague, who recently had some basement waterproofing done, to HomeSpec BasementFix as one of the best foundation repair companies nearby.

Erik, a Project Manager experienced in crawl space-related foundation problems, was sent to perform a detailed inspection of the property. Once he arrived and discussed the homeowners concerns in more detail, he began his inspection and noted the insufficient support in the crawl space as being the main cause of the sagging floors. When the crawl space is not supported properly because of age, mold or pest damage, the floors above can begin to sag, causing uneven floors which can be unpleasant to live with. Erik proposed a durable solution that involved our SmartJack Support System in order to restore the floors back to their original condition.

The SmartJack Support System was used by our crew to provide reliable support to the sinking floors, and with the ability to support over 60,000 lbs., push them back to level. Traditional support systems can sink, rot, or be damaged by water. However, the SmartJack is made of powerful corrosion-resistant metals, which allows it to withstand the unforgiving environment in the crawl space. Aside from the durability of the SmartJack, it is also easily adjustable to accommodate the needs of the homeowner over time, making it a permanent solution for the home.

With the crawl space successfully supported back to its original condition, the homeowner was pleased with the work done by our team and was excited to receive a small referral discount for the foundation repair.
