Colorado Basement Systems Removes Rodent Houseguests For Homeowner
MINTURN, COLORADO -- March 9, 2009: Colorado Basement Systems LLC has equipped a homeowner in Hartsel, Colorado with a conditioned crawl space. The four day-four man crew install of the CleanSpace Encapsulation System first required the removal of batt and expandable foam insulation originally attached to the sub-floor, along with the removal of unwelcome rodent houseguests.
The home is a weekend getaway retreat owned by Carl (CJ) Thoutt and his family. Mr. Thoutt contacted Colorado Basement Systems after a Google search for crawlspace solutions and is pleased with the outcome of the installation.
"The house has never been warmer and we sleep better knowing there are no more unwanted guests in the crawl space," says Thoutt. "Colorado Basement Systems' solution to the rodent problem made the most sense and the work was executed exactly as it was proposed."
"Not only did we remove dead rodents and the insulation from the sub-floor," says Lynette Marie Lacerda, Colorado Basement Systems' General Manager, "But we created a conditioned crawlspace by keeping the walls insulated, closing up the vents, adding expandable foam along the perimeter rim joist, adding dehumidification and encapsulating the crawlspace with CleanSpace. Mr. Thoutt will now save money on energy bills and burn less fossil fuel."
The 20 millimeter CleanSpace liner that was installed is thicker and more durable than standard liners and contains a safe, odorless antimicrobial additive, Ultrafresh, manufactured directly into it. Dimpled polyethylene drainage matting was placed down first before the liner to create an air space and to make the liner more resistant to tearing.
"Homeowners with dirt crawl spaces should ask themselves 'What's in my crawl space?'" says Lacerda. "Rodents and insects do not like the CleanSpace liner, and Mr. Thoutt now has a clean, dry, energy efficient crawl space."
