If you have a crawlspace under your home, it’s important to ensure that it is protected from moisture. Excess moisture in your crawlspace can lead to a range of problems, including mold growth, wood rot, and structural damage. One effective solution to prevent moisture from penetrating your crawlspace is by waterproofing it with SANI-TRED® products.
SANI-TRED® is a company that specializes in waterproofing products for a range of applications, including residential and commercial properties. Their products are designed to create a waterproof barrier that can prevent moisture from seeping into your crawlspace. Here are the steps to waterproof your crawlspace with SANI-TRED® products:
Step 1: Prepare the Surface
Before you begin applying the SANI-TRED® products, you need to prepare the surface of your crawlspace. Start by removing any debris or loose materials, such as dirt or rocks. Next, clean the surface with a pressure washer or a wire brush to remove any dirt or debris that may be stuck to the walls or floor.
Step 2: Apply the PermaFlex
The first product you’ll use from SANI-TRED® is the PermaFlex. This product is a liquid rubber coating that creates a flexible, waterproof seal over your crawlspace walls and floors. To apply the PermaFlex, use a roller or brush to apply a thick layer over the entire surface of your crawlspace. Be sure to apply enough PermaFlex to create a continuous, unbroken seal.
Step 3: Apply the LRB/TAV
The next product you’ll use is the Liquid Rubber Base (LRB) and Thickening Activator (TAV). These two products are mixed together to create a thick, paste-like material that can be used to fill any gaps or cracks in your crawlspace walls and floors. Simply mix the LRB and TAV together, apply the mixture to any gaps or cracks, and smooth it out with a trowel.
Step 4: Apply the Top Coat
The final product you’ll use is the Top Coat. This product is a waterproof, skid-resistant coating that can be applied over the PermaFlex and LRB/TAV to provide additional protection and durability. Simply apply the Top Coat with a roller or brush, and allow it to dry completely before walking on it.
By following these steps, you can effectively waterproof your crawlspace with SANI-TRED® products. This will help to prevent moisture from seeping into your crawlspace and causing damage to your home. If you’re unsure about how to apply the products, or if you need assistance with your waterproofing project, consider contacting a professional waterproofing contractor who can help you with the process.
