Humidity Control Solutions & Crawl Space Repair Solutions

Many homeowners consistently struggle with the amount of moisture that is in their home’s crawl space. As for others, they may be choosing to avoid going into their crawl space all together, thus not realizing the damage that may be occurring over time.

Unfortunately, the moisture from this space may slowly seep into the house, causing costly issues such as: floor deterioration, mold growth, musty odors, condensation on the windows and walls, and wet insulation. Moisture, though, may not be the only worry. Since the majority of residential crawl spaces are vented, this gives perfect access to other pests such as bugs, insects, and even termites. These issues are not without a solution!

There are many solutions that we offer. Depending on the issues you are having at your home, we can offer solutions such as:

Whole Home Dehumidifiers: These systems reduce the humidity level throughout your entire home, not just a few rooms. This dramatically increases your comfort level and also greatly reduces the risk of moisture related issues to your home.

Crawl Space Encapsulations: A Crawl Space Encapsulation takes that dirty, damp area and transforms it into a clean, dry, healthy space. Involves sealing the entire crawl space, adding dehumidification systems, sealing & much more.

Vapor Barrier: A vapor barrier works by controlling and balancing the moisture inside the crawl space to create a semi-conditioned area that protects your foundation, your air quality, and your peace of mind.

Crawl Space Insulation: We offer a variety of insulation that cannot be damaged by moisture and will not degrade over time.

Crawl Space Cleaning & Air Sealing: A sealing system that closes off all vents in the crawl space. Sometimes includes sealing in all gaps and holes in flooring such as plumbing pipes, drains, electric lines etc.

Sump Pumps: A system that helps to reduce water and moisture in your crawl space by pumping any water or moisture out of that space.

9 Signs you need your Crawl Space Inspected

  1. Humidity – Many crawl spaces are incredibly humid and retain lots of moisture. This crawl space air naturally rises into the home and can cause issues to your homes structure, air quality, and overall comfort.
  2. Condensation on Surfaces – If you notice moisture collecting on surface areas, floors, foundation, and joists, this can signal that the moisture level in the crawl space may be too high.
  3. Sticking Doors – When humidity levels reach above normal, the excess moisture absorbs and expands the wood in your home. You may notice how interior doors will tighten in the frame and make it difficult to open or close properly.
  4. Warped Flooring – Your floors are easily damaged by overly moist environments. The floors may warp, pop, crack, or seem uneven.
  5. Hot/Cold Rooms or Cold Floors – Rooms that are not comfortable could be caused by a lack of insulation in the crawl space or from air leakage. Floors may be cold in the winter due to lack of insulation in the crawl, as well.
  6. High Energy Bills – Do you have adequate insulation in your crawl? Is duct work torn under your crawl space? Your air conditioner could be working extra hard to keep the temps comfortable. These are just a few reasons how the crawl space may be the culprit for high energy bills.
  7. Odor – Since air circulates from the crawl space, any rotten debris can cause a musty smell in your home.
  8. Mold and Mildew – Damp areas that may be tucked away tend to offer good homes for mold and other forms of growth. Breathing any type of growth negatively effects the air quality in your home, thus influencing your health. Allergies, chronic coughing, difficulty breathing, and mild to severe headaches may occur!
  9. Animals/Rodents – If you are hearing or smelling any animal presence, it may be that they have taken up residence in accessible crawl space points.
