Vapor Barrier

Our Sub-Floor Void Vapor Barrier System In Greater London

Typical sub-floor voids are moldy, foul-smelling spaces that homeowners avoid at all costs. Many of them flood, and they're often filled with debris left over from when the house was constructed. In more extreme cases, they can be rotting structures with rodents, animals, and other pests living within.

At Basement Systems GB, it's our job to make sure that your musty sub-floor void is transformed into a cleaner, drier, healthier, and more energy-efficient space.

Our sub-floor void encapsulation services are available in Birmingham, London, Manchester, Bristol and nearby. For a free sub-floor void repair quote, call or e-mail us today! Our vapor barrier system is even more effective when combined with our sub-floor void insulation and drainage matting.

Steps to Installing A Sub-Floor Void Vapor Barrier

  1. Install Airtight Doors & Vent Covers: Sealing your sub-floor void doors and vents stops the cycle of cold, humidity, and moisture entering from the outside air. However, water can still enter your sub-floor void in many ways.
  2. Remove Any Standing Water Sources: The next step is to eliminate any sources of flooding in your sub-floor void by installing a sub-floor void drain and sump pump system. This eliminates flooding water from your sub-floor void, but moisture can still enter directly through the concrete and floor in the form of water vapor.
  3. Repair The Structure: If your sub-floor void is sagging or damaged by prolonged mold and rot, the next step is to install sub-floor void support jacks to help restore your structure. This will help your floors stay even and stop any structural sagging upstairs.
  4. Encapsulate & Insulate The Sub-Floor Void: To stop moisture from passing through your floors and porous concrete walls, a sub-floor void vapor barrier should be installed. A durable liner will allow for servicemen to use the space without damage while transforming your sub-floor void into usable storage space. This is also the best time to install sub-floor void insulation on your walls or floors. Installing sub-floor void drainage matting underneath the sub-floor void liner will help direct water to the drainage system and sump pump.
  5. Install A Dehumidifier: Installing an energy-efficient, self-draining sub-floor void dehumidifier will keep your space dry. Our sub-floor void dehumidifier system includes a filter that removes particles from the air as small as 2 microns. This ensures that your sub-floor void is protected from mold, dust mites, and mildew damage -- permanently!
