If you’ve got a crawl space, it is likely a location that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
