Basement & crawlspace repair services
American Crawlspace Solutions specializes in Crawlspace Encapsulation. An encapsulated or sealed crawlspace is a more energy-efficient solution than the traditional wall-vented crawlspace. Other benefits of crawlspace encapsulation include energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, increased home value and appeal, and humidity control.
If your Woodstock home is built on a crawlspace, chances are you have foundation vents in the walls of your homes foundation. Despite what you may have heard, instead of allowing hot, humid air out of the crawlspace, the vents 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 to seal out unwanted humid air. Dirt crawlspaces should also be covered with a proper vapor barrier installed on the floor and exterior walls. This is called Crawlspace Encapsulation. An encapsulated crawlspace will properly deflect 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
To further assist with high moisture in the crawl space, we can also provide an automatic dehumidifier to remove extra moisture from the air. Dehumidifiers are a simple and reliable solution. By removing excess moisture, mold will not be able to grow in your crawlspace. A moisture-free crawlspace is a healthy crawlspace.
