Our trained professionals can provide your home with Crawlspace Encapsulation. An encapsulated or sealed crawlspace is a more comprehensive solution than 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. Although it might not make sense, instead of allowing hot, humid air to exit the crawlspace, they instead allow the hot exterior air into to your crawlspace. This leads to excess moisture beneath your home which leads, in turn, to fungus and musty odors in the crawlspace. Crawlspace vents should always be sealed to keep 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 perpetually deflect humidity, leading to a healthier and more energy efficient home.
Warning signs which might indicate a problem with a damp crawl space:
- Insects seen entering the basement or crawlspace
- Stagnant water around the foundation of your house
- Uneven floors in the first floor of a house
- Musty and moldy odors emanating from the basement
- Recent vision, skin or respiratory problems
Crawl Space Moisture Solutions
To further assist with excess moisture in the area beneath your home, we can also outfit your crawlspace with an automated dehumidifier system to remove humidity from the air. Dehumidifiers are a simple and reliable solution. By removing moisture and humidity, mold will not be able to grow in your crawlspace. A water-free crawlspace is a safe crawlspace.
