When you crawl space has experienced issues with moisture seepage, it can create several forms of damage. Excess humidity and moisture below your home contribute to wood rot, including wooden supports and floor joists. We always remind our valued customers that those wooden beams, supports and joists partially hold up the weight of your house. When the beams begin to rot, you may notice sloping floors and sloping rooms.

If your home is built on a crawlspace, chances are you have open foundation vents in place. Contrary to popular belief, instead of letting humid air out of the crawlspace they allow the warm exterior air into your home. This leads to excess moisture 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 require a proper vapor barrier installed on the floor and exterior walls. An encapsulated crawlspace will properly manage humidity, leading to a healthier and more energy efficient home.
To further assist with excess humidity in the area beneath your home, we can also install an automatic dehumidifier to remove humidity from the air.
