Salem, OR Crawl Space Encapsulated to Help Prevent Mold Growth

Salem, OR Crawl Space Encapsulated to Help Prevent Mold Growth

Before After
Salem, OR Crawl Space Encapsulated to Help Prevent Mold Growth Salem, OR Crawl Space Encapsulated to Help Prevent Mold Growth

After this Salem, OR homeowner had the old insulation in their crawl space removed by another company, he needed it re-insulated and called our company to get a proposal. With the moisture issues under this home, and the mold growth that had already started (see BEFORE photo), the owner chose to seal the crawl space with encapsulation (AFTER photo).

This attic in a South Salem, OR home was woefully under-insulated. There was some old insulation (see BEFORE photo), but not enough to actually do much.

Our insulation crew removed the old insulation, sealed up places where air was leaking in from the home (that is typical for most homes), and then blew in TruSoft™ cellulose insulation (see AFTER photo).

The crawl space under this SE Salem, OR home was a gigantic mess! Fiberglass insulation was either hanging down or on the ground rather than tucked onto the underfloor (see BEFORE photo). Rodents were living in the space (they love fiberglass to make nests). Plus, the high humidity level under the home was causing mold to grow!

To make their home more energy-efficient, and also so they wouldn’t be breathing in mold spores, this family chose to seal their crawl space with crawl space encapsulation.

The old, nasty, insulation and vapor barrier were removed by our crawl space crew and then the mold issue was treated with Mold-X to neutralize it and stop the growth. They then installed the special encapsulation vapor barrier material, spray foamed the foundation walls, and installed the Sedona dehumidifier and the SmartSump sump pump.

All of these items together, rather than just replacing the insulation with more fiberglass, makes this home more comfortable and healthier for this family.

Proven Crawl Space Insulation Solutions

Are the floors of your home always cold? Do you have to constantly keep your heat running over the winter? Does your crawl space have a moldy or damp smell? If these symptoms sound familiar, you’re in the right place! We have an experienced team of crawl space insulation experts who can identify issues with your crawl space and also provide reliable solutions. Many homeowners in the Salem area don’t realize the importance of crawl space insulation but it is one of the most important areas of your home when it comes to energy efficiency. Your crawl space is the area of your home that is the closest to the ground. Without proper insulation, the cold and frozen winter ground will transfer into your crawl space and then to the rest of your home. In the summer, warm damp air will be absorbed into your crawl space promoting mold growth and causing your home to be hot and humid. To understand crawl space insulation issues and solutions for your home, contact us today!

Blown-in insulation with the addition of air sealing can reduce heating and cooling costs by as much as 40%. If you want to eliminate drafts and have a more comfortable home, blown-in insulation is your best option. Contact us today to schedule a FREE blown-in insulation estimate!


Salem, OR Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is one of the newest insulation products available. Spray Foam has gained popularity lately due to the benefits it offers compared to traditional fiberglass insulation. 1) Spray foam offers more insulation value (or R-value) per square inch, meaning less insulation is needed to get the job done. 2) Spray foam expands when it is applied so it also air seals gaps and cracks that may go unnoticed. 3) Spray foam insulation is waterproof so it stops mold and mildew growth which can be a major problem for fiberglass insulation. 4) Lastly, spray foam insulation is foolproof. Spray foam will never shift or slide after it is applied so you will always have the peace of mind that your home is properly insulated. If you think spray foam is right for your home, contact us today to schedule your FREE estimate!

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation Include:

  • spray foam works in all areas of the home
  • has a greater R-value
  • acts as an air sealant
  • is waterproof
  • leaves no gaps

Energy-Efficient Replacement Windows

Did you know that your windows play a big part in improving your home's energy efficiency? In fact, many windows do not seal as well as they should and allow air to leak out. At Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver we can install new windows in your home. Unlike other contractors in the area, we can replace your existing windows with low-e-glass! Low-e glass has a coating that emits almost no radiant energy and blocks most ultraviolet (UV) longwave energy, which we feel as heat. Our Low-E glass replacement windows help control the temperature in your home all year long.

Salem, OR Attic Treated for Mold Growth

These homeowners in Salem, OR called to get an estimate for their attic insulation. When our energy consultant suited up and climbed into the attic, he found an issue they didn’t know was there—mold!

To neutralize the mold and help prevent it from spreading, our crew applied Mold-X2 that helps neutralize the mold. Their next step is to deal with how all the moisture is getting into the attic so mold cannot get a foothold again.

We have an older house with a vented crawlspace. We need the insulation on our ducts replaced (and the ducts possibly need sealing as well). We're also interested in ball-park estimates for crawlspace and attic insulation (Likely not in the budget right now) There's usually somebody here all day so we're flexible with scheduling.

Vicinity of Timothy Ln NE in Salem
We had a water leak last winter under house. The vapor barrier was breached to allow water to seep out. We need to replace the vapor barrier and insulate under our floors. We are trying to decide our best options. Our house was built 1987-88 and has insulation around the perimiter of the crawl space and that apparently is not now standard practice.
