Signs of a Crawl Space Problem:

Many homes in the southeast United States have moisture problems, does yours?

Upstairs:

If you’ve noticed a bad, lingering smell and can’t identify the source, it may be moisture, standing water or decaying debris and pests.

It’s a serious problem when your floors start to feel uneven, sloping or bouncy. You need to act fast when your hardwood floors are being affected by lingering moisture.

Humidity is one of the most damaging issues you can have in your home as it causes mold, mildew and weakened floor joists.

When water is in contact with wood for too long, it forms a fungal infestation and begins to rot. Condensation is also a sign that high humidity is affecting the surrounding wood.

Poorly insulated crawl spaces are likely to send a draft up to the ceiling above it, chilling your floors and feet.

An increase in energy bills may be due to inadequate insulation. If the air in your home is too humid, the HVAC system has to work overtime to cool and heat it.

Crawl Space:

Crawl spaces are prime suspects in attracting moisture through the ground or concrete foundation, meaning if you notice growing mold or lingering moisture on the walls, this is a good indication that the problem is more significant than you may have first thought.

You’ll know you have a crawl space with high humidity when you find condensation on the air conditioning duct work. The duct work won’t sweat if the air in the crawl space is dry.

Similar to that of air conditioning duct work, you won’t notice sweating or condensation if the crawl space air is dry.

Because crawl space insulation retains moisture, you’ll often notice mold and mildew, and in some instances, soggy insulation. If there’s high humidity in your crawl space, it’ll cling onto whatever it can.

When insulation retains a lot of moisture, it will first sag, and then when it retains high quantities of moisture, it will begin to fall and hang loose from the ceiling.

Pets can easily get into your home if your crawl space does not have a barrier. The most common crawl space invaders include termites, cockroaches, spiders, silverfish, rats, and mice.

When water is in contact with wood for too long, it forms a fungal infestation and begins to rot.

Standing water in your crawl space can lead to mold and mildew growth which can become the cause of rot and structural damage in addition to being a potential health hazard.

The Many Benefits of Crawl Space Solutions.

Franklin, Tennessee homeowners love our crawl space solutions for a multitude of reasons.

Did you know that finding your crawl space solution is one of the most effective ways to prevent damage caused by indoor moisture? We’re happy to go through the process and results with you so that you understand the benefits in entirety. Some major benefits of choosing a crawl space solution for your home are protecting your home from mold, improving air quality, avoiding structural damage, reducing energy costs, keeping pests out and the addition of a new space for storage.

When water leaks and seeps into your home, the space becomes the perfect recipe for mold growth. Sometimes rain + leaks can cause mold growth and so can a burst pipe. If you have a flooding issue, you’re also at risk for mold growth in large quantities. The biggest factor that puts you at risk for mold is that there is little to no ventilation in these spaces. Because of the lack of airflow and that they are not able to properly dry after flooding or leakage, it doesn’t take much and it doesn’t take long for mold to start growing.

Mold, mildew and bacteria are often found in crawl spaces and they significantly impact the quality of air and make breathing conditions poor. This may not seem like a problem, especially if you’re assuming that this poor air quality remains in the basement or crawl space. However, this is not the case as air rises and seeps into the rest of your home. What does this mean for you and your family? The contaminants and spores found in mold and mildew are harmful to both people and pets and put all those who live in your home at risk of mold-related illnesses, such as asthma. By finding a crawl space solution that works best for your basement, you’ll create a dry crawl space which will prevent mold, mildew and bacteria growth.

Water damage in your crawl space affects the entire home as we’ve previously discussed. Not only will poor air quality move throughout your home, potentially making those you love sick, but water damage, too, in the form of vapor, can rot wood frames and floorings that make up the structure of a house. But crawl space encapsulation doesn’t just keep water out, another advantage of a crawl space solution is that termites are also kept out of the home. As we all know, termites eat at wood and cause severe damage to the homes they invade. If you’re having trouble justifying finding a crawl space solution that will work for your home, its important to consider all the costs that will be negated in the future, like repairing rot and mitigating termites and their damage.

Without a crawl space solution, heat and cool air that is pushed through the home will also escape through your crawl space. When you encapsulate your space, you’ll see a difference in your energy bill. With less air escaping from your home, your heating and air conditioning units won’t be working in overdrive to maintain the temperature of your home. The one-time investment of a crawl space encapsulation will save you money for years and years to come as warm and cool air will stay inside your home. Your home will be more comfortable as the temperature of your home will easily be maintained. In the hot months of summer, cool air won’t escape and as things get icy in the winter, you can guarantee you and your family stay warm.

A crawl space solution keeps pests out of your home by sealing off the cracks they were previously entering your home through. It sounds simple because it is. The new barrier we create will keep insects and rodents from entering your home. We can even install a pest-specific barrier that is designed with the intent of keeping insects and rodents out of your home. This crawl space solution will still prevent other common worries you may have, like moisture, mold and the elements.

A large benefit of choosing the crawl space solution that works for you is that you’re left with a safe, dry space that can double as a storage space — with no worries of mold growing on your items in storage or possible flood or water damage. Store anything that there isn’t room for in the main, living spaces of your home. While traditional crawl spaces often have soil or sand, this makes your belongings prone to damage from pests, mold and water. If you’re in need of extra storage space, our crawl space solutions allow your belongings to stay safe, dry and out of the reach of pests.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

This crawl space solution is a sealing treatment backed by building scientists that turns your damp, dirty and moldy crawl space into a clean, dry space that can’t grow mold or be penetrated by pests or the elements. Many homes built on crawl space foundations have moisture problems, especially those in the southeast United States.

Crawl spaces don’t just cause issues below ground, although this is where they begin. Mold, mildew and bacteria are often found in crawl spaces and they significantly impact the quality of air and make breathing conditions poor. This may not seem like a problem, especially if you’re assuming that this poor air quality remains in the basement or crawl space. However, this is not the case as air rises and seeps into the rest of your home. Additionally, moisture and vapor that forms in the basement can rot wood frames and floorings that make up the structure of a house. But crawl space encapsulation doesn’t just keep water out, another advantage of a crawl space solution is that termites and other pests are also kept out of the home. You’ll save on energy costs as well, as cool air won’t escape in the summer and heat won’t escape in the chilly winter months.

This crawl space solution works by adding a heavy-duty polyethylene barrier to cover the crawl space, meaning the floors, foundation walls and possibly even the ceiling will be coated. You could compare the encapsulation material to that of a swimming pool liner that is used to prevent leaks. The barrier of this crawl space solution works best when your home’s crawl space is covered completely and sealing tape is used to connect the barrier’s pieces throughout the space. Once the space is sealed, a dehumidifier helps to regulate the crawl space’s moisture levels.

Crawl Space Repair

It’s common practice to build homes on top of a crawl space, a space between 1 foot to 3 feet tall, to elevate the structure off the ground. Crawl spaces often have dirt floors because it’s a much cheaper alternative to pouring concrete. Your crawl space may be hiding moldy insulation, standing water, pests, rodents and insects.

It’s important to find a crawl space solution, like crawl space repair, that works for your home. Commonly, crawl space encapsulation is the best, most effective crawl space solution for repairing your crawl space and saving the rest of your home from poor air quality, mold and mildew, structural damage, reducing energy costs, keeping pests out and adding more storage space.

Vapor & Moisture Barrier

A vapor barrier, also known as a moisture barrier, is a crawl space solution that can help pull your crawl space out of the damp, moldy and mildewy situation it’s in, which will help you to save money on other costs like poor air quality, mold and mildew, structural damage, reducing energy costs, keeping pests out and adding more storage space along the way.

A vapor barrier is what we would consider the bare minimum protection you should consider when it comes to crawl space solutions. A moisture barrier is a plastic liner that covers the dirt floor of your crawl space. It will work to keep moisture and pets from seeping into your home.

Mold, mildew and bacteria are often found in crawl spaces and they significantly impact the quality of air and make breathing conditions poor. This may not seem like a problem, especially if you’re assuming that this poor air quality remains in the basement or crawl space. However, this is not the case as air rises and seeps into the rest of your home. The contaminants and spores found in mold and mildew are harmful to both people and pets and put all those who live in your home at risk of mold-related illnesses, such as asthma. Moreover, your HVAC system will work harder as some of your warm or cold air seeps through the crawl space.

Installing a moisture barrier is a great crawl space solution. The correct amount of barrier will need to be obtained by calculating the square footage of your crawl space. The crawl space should be free of debris before you begin and the barrier should be thick and heavy enough that it doesn’t roll up on itself. The results are not one-and-done, as a new barrier needs to be installed every 5-10 years. You could do it on your own, or you could call our team of professionals at Crawl Space Encapsulation Franklin, Tennessee.

Crawl Space Moisture Control

Crawl space encapsulation is the best crawl space solution for controlling the moisture in your crawl space. When water leaks and seeps into your home, the space becomes the perfect recipe for mold growth. Sometimes rain + leaks can cause mold growth and so can a burst pipe. If you have a flooding issue, you’re also at risk for mold growth in large quantities. The biggest factor that puts you at risk for mold is that there is little to no ventilation in these spaces. Because of the lack of airflow and that they are not able to properly dry after flooding or leakage, it doesn’t take much and it doesn’t take long for mold to start growing.

Our crawl space solutions work to turn your damp, dirty and moldy crawl spaces into clean dry spaces where moisture isn’t retained, making it impossible for mold to grow. Our team of experienced professional contractors have all crawl space solutions, like the crawl space encapsulation installation and application processes, on lock and will transform your crawl space into a clean, dry foundation for your home.
