If your Oxford, Georgia, home has problems related to your home’s crawlspace, we recommend you contact American Crawlspace Solutions for Crawlspace Encapsulation services.
If your home is built on a crawlspace, chances are you have foundation vents in place. Although it might not make sense, instead of allowing humid air out of the crawlspace, they instead allow the hot exterior air to have access to your basement. This leads to excess moisture beneath your home which leads, in turn, to an environment suitable for mold growth in the crawlspace. Crawlspace vents should always be closed to seal out unwanted humid air. Dirt crawlspaces require 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.
Warning signs of a crawl space to excessive moisture:
- Uneven floors in the first floor of a house
- Musty and moldy odors emanating from the basement
- Unexplained health problems
- Insects and pests are colonizing the crawlspace
- Water standing around the footing of the home
Crawl Space Moisture Solutions
When your crawlspace or basement has ongoing problems related to moisture you are at risk of several types of damage. Water and humidity can contribute to rotting wooden structures, including wooden support beams and floor joists. We always remind our valued customers that those wooden beams, supports and joists partially carry the weight of your house. When the joists begin to deteriorate, our clients typically notice un-level floors and un-level rooms. Additionally, humidity present in a basement or crawlspace will create an environment suitable for the growth of mold and mildew, which are widely known to to be to blame for a variety of health-related issues.
To further assist with excess moisture in the area beneath your home, we can also install an automatic dehumidifier to remove extra moisture from the air. Dehumidifiers are a straightforward solution. By removing excess moisture, mold and fungus will not be able to grow in your crawlspace. A water-free crawlspace is a healthy crawlspace.
