Service technicians are people we like to trust to do their job competently but they sometimes get in a hurry. Did they put everything back where it goes? For instance: All of us have gotten our oil changed, right? We like to trust them as the “experts” because changing oil is what they do all day. How many people do we know who have said, “They forgot to put my oil cap back on!” The same applies to your home. You need to be able to trust that the work is complete. Has your vapor become compromised due to someone crawling across it? Did the cover get re-installed on that junction box? Did they clean up after themselves or leave debris lying about?
Since as much as half of the air in your home comes up from your crawl space, it’s important to keep this space underneath your home as dry and clean as possible. Adding a vapor barrier and dehumidifier in your crawl space is the one of the best ways to protect your home from problems caused by crawl space moisture.
If we perform work on your crawlspace, we will monitor it for free for as long as you’re at that property and maintain our free yearly inspection.
Before modifying your crawl space, it’s important to take care of any water issues, including plumbing leaks, foundation leaks, and drainage problems to prevent water damage and keep your crawl space dry. We can help stop water from coming into your crawl space by installing a drainage system around the perimeter designed specifically for the crawl space.
Often, moisture enters your crawl space through the ground. Adding a vapor barrier in your crawl space helps prevent mold growth, wood rot, and pest infestations. We also evaluate any air leaks that may be coming from your foundation, vents, pipes, or electrical wires. The smallest unsealed area can cause major problems for a crawl space moisture levels!
We cover the crawl space floor and with a heavy-duty, reinforced polymer liner vapor barrier. When installed as part of a complete sealed crawl space system, this helps provide a dry, healthy crawl space that can be safely used for storage.
Installing a dehumidifier will help protect your remediation investment by controlling present and future moisture levels in the crawlspace. This will help to inhibit future fungal growth from occurring. Our dehumidifiers are powerful commercial units that are specifically designed for your specific crawlspace size and deliver quiet, energy-efficient service.
