Crawl Space Repair Services
Why Should I Worry About My Crawl Space?
Often an overlooked and unused space, it’s easy to ignore the crawl space in your home. In reality, the conditions in your crawl space are critical to the overall health and comfort of your home. Up to half of the air that you breathe in your home comes up from the lower level. If your crawl space is left vulnerable to the outside elements, especially moisture and unwanted critters, it can lead to some serious concerns. It might be time for professional crawl space repair.
What are the signs?
It’s important to always be on the lookout for the following issues in your lower level:
- Musty odors
- Insect or rodent infestation
- Poor indoor air quality
- Sweating or excess condensation on air ducts
- Wood rot
- Cold, uncomfortable or buckling floors
- Mildew and mold

Many times the crawl space can be the source of allergens, odors, and excess moisture in your home. Crawl space encapsulation is the solution. It includes the installation of a tough and durable vapor barrier along the walls and floor. This is a great way to lower moisture, mold, mildew, and many pests from your home.
Over time, high moisture levels in a crawl space can cause rot, causing uneven floors and sagging floor joist. The weakened joist becomes unable to properly support their weight load. If these are problems you notice in your home, then you may benefit from crawl space stabilization.
Water seepage along with leaky cracks along your crawl space walls can end up being a serious problem for homeowners. The same goes for standing water after a storm. These issues will end up causing mold, mildew and rot, and will only continue to worsen over time. If this is a concern to you, consider professionally waterproofing your crawl space area.
Your wooden crawl space doors and vents can easily warp or rot due to excess moisture in the environment. For many homeowners, the crawlspace doors may even be missing altogether. Without proper doors, your crawlspace can be left vulnerable to leaking or pests. A crawl space without sturdy doors and vent covers also allows for humid air to come into your crawl space and travel to upper levels of your home. Consider contacting a professional to get things done the right way.
Almost all issues that you might find in your crawl space can be linked back to water. Water can destroy any crawlspace, and it’s important to address these issues right away. Excess moisture or leaks in your crawl space create harmful, unhealthy conditions that create more costly damage to contend with. We offer the best dehumidification options, so you can put these worries out of your mind.
