Symptoms of Crawl Space Issues
If you’re like most homeowners, you don’t think about your crawl space often. Unfortunately, pretending it doesn’t exist won’t make the problems inside it disappear. Water is the biggest issue we encounter in crawl spaces, and if you’ve got a moisture problem, our team can help. A quick trip down to the crawl space will let you know whether or not you have water in your crawl space, but you may also notice some other symptoms, including:
- Stinky, musty smells
- Sagging or bouncy main floors
- High humidity levels
- High utility bills
- Heightened respiratory or asthma symptoms
How Crawl Space Encapsulation Works
Crawl space encapsulation is a process that seals your crawl space, making it impossible for water to cause problems like mold or mildew growth. By sealing the space against water intrusion and putting additional systems in place to ensure water that does get through is dealt with properly, we can help safeguard the structural integrity of your home and the lives of everyone inside it!
Our Products & Process
We partner with SafeBasements™, one of the leading manufacturers of American-made home repair products, to use their CleanSpace® encapsulation system. Our team will seal all openings to your crawl space using vent covers and create a single, sealable access door. Using a vapor barrier, we’ll line all wall and ground surfaces to ensure condensation can’t seep into concrete surfaces or create a muddy floor. Our team may also assess your needs and suggest additional crawl space insulation, drainage systems like our EZ-Flow and Multi-Flow French drains, or a dehumidifier.
