Moisture or water in your crawl space should be a serious cause for concern. A damp crawl space can cause a number of problems including structural damage, mold growth, and even insect or rodent infestations. A damp crawl space is not normal or healthy and should be addressed as soon as possible to mitigate any damage.
At Crossroads Property Rescue, we provide crawl space encapsulation services to effectively manage the moisture and protect your crawl space from mold and water damage. Crawl space encapsulation can give you peace of mind that your home has a healthy foundation.
Crawl space moisture problems can come from a variety of sources. When you have a wet crawl space, the first step is to identify where the water is coming from and how it is getting into your crawl space. We will provide a professional recommendation to mitigate the water damage that may include one or more of the following:
A vapor barrier is a thick sheet that creates a physical barrier to the moisture entering your crawl space. A high-quality polyethylene sheet is used to cover the floor and walls of your crawl space, sealing it off.
A dehumidifer may be needed to maintain healthy humidity levels in your crawlspace after a vapor barrier is installed.
If cracks or damage to your foundation are allowing water to seep into your crawl space, foundation repairs may be necessary.
Proper drainage outside your home is essential for keeping a dry crawl space. We can install a variety of drainage solutions to suit your property and landscaping.
A damp or wet crawl space can cause significant damage to your home and can negatively affect your indoor air quality and health of your home. If you are concerned about moisture in your crawl space, call Crossroads Property Rescue today to learn more about how we can help.304-594-3222
