The majority of crawl spaces are vented to the exterior. When the climate becomes hot and humid, the exterior vent can lead to problems. Humid air fills the crawl space, which creates condensation under your home. When left untreated, condensation and high humidity levels can lead to an environment conducive to mold growth, wood decay, insect infestations, and foundation problems.
Air: Nearly 50% of the air you breathe in your home comes from your crawl space. This means that if your crawl space is not properly maintained, you could potentially cause problems that negatively affect the health of your home and your family.
Issues such as a widening stair-step in your home’s brick pattern may seem like a common problem, but it may indicate that your foundation is compromised. Foundation issues can be caused by several factors from soil settlement to damaged piers; if you notice any warning sings, it’s time to get a professional opinion.
The presence of mold in your home or commercial space is usually the result of water condensing in an area, creating a humid environment for mold to thrive. Mold can ruin your space and cause serious health issues for you and your family so don’t hesitate to call your local professionals to get the job done right.
Wood decay can be the result of several factors, but is typically due to the presence of water or humidity. If the wooden structure of your space begins to decay it can collapse, causing serious damage to your home or commercial space and potentially those within it.
Encapsulating your crawl space will go a long way in preventing mold, insects, wood decay, foundation issues and will even keep the air within your home cleaner. An encapsulated crawl space will reduce humidity within the space, effectively reducing the chance for condensation to build and create an environment for these issues to arise.
If you notice the crawl space of your home or commercial space is prone to flooding, it may be time to consider installing a sump pump. These devices suck up any detected water and navigate it out of the space, effectively working to keep your crawl space dry.
French Drains, Catch Basins and Downspout Extensions are all effective means of directing water out of and away from your home or commercial space. Our experts will evaluate the area and recommend the perimeter drainage solution that is best suited for your needs.
A commercial dehumidifier in your space will condense and evaporate humidity in your crawl space. These HVAC devices are a proven means of keeping your crawl space dry and actively preventing condensation from damaging your structure’s integrity.
