Crawl spaces are like the underbelly of your house, and they serve as access points for utilities. They help separate your home’s living space from the ground. Most of them have dirt or gravel floors, although some have concrete. When water leaks into these crawl spaces, it can harm your home’s structure and even be bad for your health. Keeping your crawl space dry isn’t just about protecting your home’s foundation; it’s also vital for the health of the area where you live.
Crawl Space Encapsulation: Encapsulation involves the installation of a sturdy vapor barrier called Ameri-Flex on both the crawl space walls and floor. This barrier serves to isolate the crawl space from external moisture, making it a dry, safer part of the foundation of your home. No longer will your crawl space be an eyesore; it will become a dependable part of your home’s foundation protection.
Crawl Space Vent Sealing: While crawl spaces have vents designed to allow air circulation underneath your home, these vents can often do more harm than good. They allow moist air to enter, creating a breeding ground for mold. As part of crawl space encapsulation, sealing these vents is essential. It’s a crucial step that should never be overlooked.
Crawl Space Waterproofing: Crawl spaces require waterproofing systems, just like basements. Interior drainage systems prevent water from reaching your foundation or crawl space walls and floor, ensuring it stays dry and free from flooding. When combined with encapsulation and specialized wall services, your crawl space remains protected from water. This system includes a sump pump to remove any collected water.
Crawl Space Dehumidifier: High humidity in the crawl space is a significant problem. It promotes musty odors, damages building materials, and creates an ideal environment for mold. Our crawl space conditioning unit not only maintains optimal humidity levels but also features filters that remove mold spores and other airborne contaminants, ensuring a healthier crawl space environment.
