Crawl spaces can create enormous headaches for homeowners.
A crawl space serves as a ventilation system to allow for air movement, as well as a space to run piping and electrical wiring for the home. Crawl spaces have no barrier between the home and the earth. Since soil is naturally damp, this moisture can be trapped within the crawl space.
This damp area beneath the home can result in a variety of problems. Because the damp air in a crawl space directly touches the home’s floor joists, having a damp crawl space can affect your integrity of your home’s structure.
THINK THIS DAMP SPACE IS ISOLATED AND DOESN’T AFFECT THE INTERIOR OF YOUR HOME? THINK AGAIN.
Air naturally flows through a home from the ground upward. As your home naturally breathes, the moist air in your crawl space flows into your living space through unsealed air penetrations.
To keep moisture and pests out of your home, it’s important to properly seal and dehumidify your crawl space. Our team will install a poly liner in your crawl space and properly seal it, creating a barrier between the ground and your home’s floor joists. We also place a free-standing dehumidifier in the crawl space. We use Santa Fe dehumidifiers. They are energy-efficient free standing dehumidifiers that are designed and manufactured specifically for humidity control for basements, crawl spaces, and other inside spaces.
