Wet Crawl Spaces: Moisture, Humidity and Hazards

If the crawl space isn't sealed off, it is only a matter of time until moisture and excessive humidity get inside and start to cause problems. Moisture can lead to wood rot in supports, beams, and floor joists. And the extra moisture in the air in the form of humidity can also lead to the development of nasty mold which could make your family sick. Mold has been known to cause everything from skin rashes to asthma attacks, and all types of serious medical problems in between.

Warning Signs of a Problem

  • Water can be seen building up next to the footing on the outside of the home
  • Certain spots on the first floor of the home no longer feel level
  • Home smells musty (indication of mold growth)
  • Unwanted critters can be seen entering or exiting the CS (roaches, termites, spiders, snakes, raccoons, skunks, mice, etc.)
  • Home feels very uncomfortable and skin is clammy or damp (humidity)

The Solutions: Crawl Space Encapsulation & Structural Supports

For full restoration and protection of your crawl space, the area will need to be sealed off properly so that water, moisture, or pests can't get inside. Vapor barriers, floor liners, dehumidifiers, and sump pumps will be installed to help with creating an efficient, dry, safe, and healthy area beneath your home. This wards off mold, woodrot, odor, and any other symptom that arises from poorly protected crawl spaces.

During the time of the encapsulation, Basement Problems will also work on repairing damage that has already been done. This includes crawl space floor jack installation for rotted wooden support beams that have deteriorated over time from mold and mildew. Much like foundation repair with piers, floor jacks are the structural solution for crawl spaces. Additionally, we can repair or replace damaged wooden floor beams underneath your home if the damage has spread.
