The Restoration Process
At Novos, we specialize in crawlspace restoration and encapsulation. We’ll undertake a complete restoration of your crawlspace – whether your crawlspace is filled with standing water or there is just enough moisture to allow for the growth of mold.
Depending on the amount of water present in your crawlspace, extra steps will be taken to remove the standing
With every crawlspace restoration, Novos follows this standard plan for proper encapsulation:
Removal of all standing water; dehumidification of crawlspace.
Removal of all existing contaminated insulation and plastic vapor barrier (if one has been previously installed).
A thorough chemical treatment to dissolve existing mold growth.
Application of a mold-resistant sealant.
Installation of new sub-floor insulation and low-permanence plastic sheeting as a vapor barrier.
Seal off any vents that allow airflow from the outside into the crawlspace. This prevents seasonal humidity changes within the crawlspace.
Installation of commercial dehumidifiers to keep the relative humidity in the crawlspace below levels conducive to mold growth.
If necessary, installation of a sump pump to remove any water entry into the crawlspace that cannot be stopped by the exterior foundation.
