If you have a problem with moisture, it's important that you call us to come take care of the situation ASAP. The longer you let this kind of problem go, the more work it's going to take to get it fixed, and the more expensive it's going to be. A lot of homeowners may want to know how water gets inside their crawl space. If you have a space that isn't encapsulated, it's only a matter of time before water starts to make it's way inside. This moisture can cause serious damage to your support beams and floor joists. If they're made from wood, this moisture can actually cause them to start rotting, warping, and deteriorating. Also, moisture in a crawl space can lead to the development of dangerous mold and bacteria which could make your family sick - especially if you have children or pets who have more vulnerable immune systems.

So, what's our solution to the problem? We can provide you with a sump pump, as well as encapsulation services. This will involve the installation of vapor barriers, floor liners, and heat barriers. When all of these products are working together in unison and are properly installed, you don't have to worry about ever having a leaky crawl space whenever it rains or when there's melting snow on your property. This is going to save you a lot of headaches and worry.
If you have a mold problem under your home, this is also another problem that needs to be taken care of immediately by us. For mold to be able to grow inside a crawl space, it will need to have three things present - moisture, high humidity levels, and organic material to feed off of (wooden supports or floor joists). When we remove just one of these elements from your crawl space, mold isn't going to be able to grow. We can install a dehumidifier from SafeBasements™ which will be able to control the levels of moisture in the air underneath your home. We can also install sump pumps, vapor barriers, and floor liners to take care of the moisture problem.
It's important to get rid of crawl space mold because it can cause the following health problems:
- Skin rashes
- Breathing problems
- Asthma attacks
- Allergic reactions
If you have sagging floors on the first level of your home, it could indicate that the problem is with your crawl space. When you have a lot of moisture in your crawl space, it can cause your wooden floor joists to start rotting, decaying, or warping. Over time, this will cause your floors to actually sink, sag, and become unlevel. To fix this problem, we can install a floor stabilizer. The stabilizer is made from high-quality steel materials which will be able to provide the support necessary to make your home's floors level once again.
