American Crawlspace Solutions is proud to serve homeowners in Sandy Springs and the entire Atlanta area. ACS specializes in Crawlspace Encapsulation. A sealed crawlspace is a more comprehensive alternative to the traditional wall-vented crawlspace. Other benefits of crawlspace encapsulation include helps to prevent freezing pipes, controls foul odors, helps to keep hardwood floors from cupping and buckling, controls conditions for mold growth, and helps to keep floors warmer in the winter.
If your home was constructed on a crawlspace, chances are you have foundation vents in your foundation walls. Contrary to popular belief, instead of forcing humid air out of the crawlspace, they allow the humid exterior air to enter to your crawlspace. This leads to excess moisture beneath your home which leads, in turn, to mold, fungus, and foul odors in the crawlspace. Crawlspace vents need to be closed in order to prevent unwanted humid air. Dirt crawlspaces also need a proper vapor barrier installed on the floor and exterior walls. This is called Crawlspace Encapsulation. An encapsulated crawlspace will properly prevent humidity, leading to a healthier and more energy efficient home.
Common problem with a damp crawl space: The warning signs:
- Insects seen entering the basement or crawlspace
- Water standing around the footing of the home
- Uneven floors in the first floor of a house
- Musty scents coming from below your home
- Recent vision, skin or respiratory problems
Solutions for Your Crawl Space Moisture Problem
To further assist with excess humidity in the area beneath your home, we can also outfit your crawlspace with an automated dehumidifier system to remove extra moisture from the air. Dehumidifiers are a simple and reliable solution. By removing humidity from the air beneath your home, mold will not be able to grow in the area beneath your house. A moisture-free crawlspace is a safe crawlspace.
