If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you only visit when there is a problem. This is because they are usually improperly closed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having excess humidity issues that could 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 encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as 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 crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
