Wilmette, IL homeowners had recently purchased a property to be used as a rental. After discovering the crawl space was occupied by dirt, insects, gravel, fallen insulation, and musty odors, they wanted to hire a professional mold and restoration company to correct the problem. The new Cook County homeowners wanted to renovate the crawl space to give it a more appealing appearance as well as seal the crawl space so it could be converted into a useful storage space area. They scheduled a free consultation with Alliance Restoration and crawl space encapsulation installation was a great solution to the problem.



Alliance Restoration sent a highly qualified restoration specialist to the home in Wilmette, IL to perform a thorough assessment of the crawl space. We informed the homeowners that in order to achieve their desired end result we could utilize our crawl space clean up and sealing services. Our liner sealer solutions and crawl space encapsulation methods eliminate musty odors and prevent dirt, insects, and moisture from entering. After discussing the options, the owners agreed to move forward with the crawl space renovation. 

First, the crew removed all debris and cleaned up the crawl space. Next, a Premium WhiteCap vapor barrier was applied to the floor and walls of the space. In the end, the owners were pleased that they now had functional storage space for future renters and knew by sealing the crawl space they had added value to the property.
