Crawl Space Dehumidification
Wet or Humid Crawl Space?
Does your crawl space have a problem with excess humidity? If you know the signs, then it won’t be hard to tell if it does. A humid crawl space will have traces of mold, mildew, and a nasty odor to go along with it. Beyond all the surface-level annoyances though, a humid crawl space can be very dangerous. About 50% of all air you breathe in the upper level of your home comes directly from the lower levels, which means you’re actively breathing all of the toxic mold and mildew from your crawl space. It’s always smart to address these problems quickly.
If you are living with a wet, nasty, or smelly crawl space, then you may need something called crawl space encapsulation. In short, this is the process of sealing off your crawl space from outside forces. After the process, your crawl space will be protected from moisture and humidity, which will prevent future mold and mildew growth and keep your family healthy.
Certified WhiteCap Installer
At Foundation RESQ, we use a method of crawl space encapsulation called WhiteCap. WhiteCap does what most standard crawl space encapsulation methods do, but is much more durable and thorough. Crawl space liners found in big box stores will protect your home for a short time, but will quickly tear and degrade. WhiteCap, however, is a permanent fixture in your home and will protect you for years to come.
When the original issue is addressed, you’ll then need to manage the humidity over time. The best way to do this is with one of our dehumidifiers. Foundation RESQ offers dehumidifiers that offer superior capacity compared to residential models. They’ll remove up to 135 pints of water every single day and can cover areas as large as 5,000 square feet. After you have one of these machines installed, you’ll have peace of mind about the health of your home.
