If you’ve got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only go into when there is a problem. This is because they are generally poorly sealed and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having moisture issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control 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 preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you’ve got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
