If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
