Crawl Space Insulation Case Studies: Serious Health Problems in Lake Oswego, OR Solved With Crawl Space Encapsulation

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016 by Kathleen Downey


This homeowner and her family were experiencing serious health problems in their home. She already knew that the mold in the crawlspace (infiltrating into the home) was the cause.  After any rain, this homeowner’s crawlspace had standing water.

She said, “I know that no water is good to have under the house, and when it rains, we have a lot of it.” She wanted to fix both the water problem and the mold issue, and make sure the mold never returned.


This homeowner met with our Energy Consultant who was able to do a thorough inspection to ensure his solutions were truly going to fix the problems.  All of the specialists who work for Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver are expertly trained in building science. He put together a crawlspace encapsulation solution that Josh’s production team installed in order to get the homeowner exactly what they were looking for.

They permanently dealt with the water and mold issues. In fact, they created a very clean space in the crawlspace. Not only is the house much healthier to live in now, it’s also much more energy efficient.

According to the homeowner, “We no longer have the horrible headaches because of the bad air getting into the house from the crawlspace. We know our house will last longer as well because it is so dry underneath. Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver did excellent work.”
