American Crawlspace Solutions specializes in Crawlspace Encapsulation. A sealed crawlspace is a more comprehensive solution than the traditional wall-vented crawlspace. Other benefits of crawlspace encapsulation include improved indoor air quality, increased home value and appeal, energy efficiency, increased home value, and humidity control.
How To Fix Crawl Space Moisture
If your home was constructed on a crawlspace, chances are you have foundation vents in your foundation walls. Contrary to popular belief, instead of allowing humid air to exit the crawlspace, they allow the hot exterior air to have access 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 should always be closed to seal out 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 control humidity, leading to a healthier and more energy efficient home.

Crawl Space Moisture Solutions
To further assist with excessive 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 quick and easy solution. By removing excess moisture, mold and fungus will not be able to grow beneath your home. A dry crawlspace is a healthy crawlspace.
