If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is because they are generally poorly sealed and are frequently messy, grimy, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having excess humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
