Your SaniDry CX dehumidification system under your house needs to be serviced annually as it is a high-performance machine. It needs to be tuned up, just like a car does, and this will ensure the level of moisture is below where mold and mildew develop.
During the service, the system and coils are checked, the heat exchange core is inspected and cleaned, the blower and discharge systems are inspected, and the overall working of the system is checked.
The pre-filter is cleaned, and the carbon filter is changed (see photos for before and after filters). A dirty filter means your dehumidification system is not working to its full potential and dust and mold spores are not being filtered out of the crawl space air that finds its way into your home.

This family in Milwaukie, OR wanted their family room to be more comfortable. Our Energy Consultant visited and determined what was making that room uncomfortable: air was leaking through from the home into the attic through many gaps. The places with a lot of gaps were around the can lights. Our crew installed can light covers and sealed around them (see AFTER photo) to help prevent leaks.
The family told us their heating bill dropped dramatically and the family room is much more comfortable now.
Because their mobile home was drafty, these homeowners suspected they had insulation problems under the house. Boy were they right! Half of the insulation was hanging down (see Before photo), so no wonder they felt drafts inside their home.
There are different options for insulating under a mobile home—re-do the bag that the insulation is blown into (sort of looks like a big belly), stuff underneath between the beams with fiberglass batting, or spray foam the underneath of the mobile home. These folks chose the batting (see After photo) which was then held in place with twine. Their home is back to being comfortable and not drafty!
The Eugene-area client already had our company insulate their attic and they were ready to have the crawl space encapsulated so chose us for that work as well. The BEFORE photos shows the old-inefficient insulation falling down. The AFTER photo shows the encapsulated crawl space. Their goal was to make their house cheaper to heat and cool. By insulating and sealing both the attic and the under floor, this goal was accomplished!
This Eugene-area resident called us as she needed some insulation under her home replaced. When our Energy Consultant was investigating, he also discovered her duct work in the attic was not insulated and was leaky. Some of the hot air she was paying to heat was not reaching her in her home! (see BEFORE photo)
Since she has a lot of animals, the better option of coating each duct with spray foam was not possible. Having to remove all her animals for a few hours, including the arthritic cat, was going to be a lot of work! Instead, our crew sealed all the connection points on the ducts with mastic and then wrapped each duct with vinyl-backed ducting insulation. (see AFTER photo)
The homeowner was thankful for our work and for our care regarding her animals.
