Learn More About Our Crawl Space Encapsulation Services
We offer a wide range of crawl space services. Controlling moisture in all it's phases is extremely important to protecting the structure of your home. Humidity does all kinds of awful things to your HVAC system, wood framing members and can lead to extremely poor indoor air quality. Below we will discuss each one of our services and why you should think about each one of their benefits.
Crawl Space Mold Remediation:
Fixing your crawl space often starts with a proper mold remediation being done. Due to the poor design of open vented crawl spaces mold is almost always growing on the wood framing members. To do a proper mold remediation in the crawl space you need to have all the insulation, vapor barrier and debris removed first. After that all the wood framing needs to be, HEPA vacuumed, sanded or wire brushed, cleaned with a mild detergent and treated with a plant-based antimicrobial agent. Staining is often remaining and can be removed for aesthetics if the customer desires. Once the wood framing part is complete all other surfaces get cleaned as well. Even cleaning all of the pipes and wires.
Crawl Space Drainage:
After the remediation is completed the bulk water that has been entering or may enter in the future needs to be addressed. Water can not be stopped, but it can be redirected to a more favorable place. We dewater the crawl space by installing a french drain system around the perimeter and tie it to a sump pump or multiple sump pumps if needs. Once the water goes into the drainage system it is lead to the sump pump and then pumped out underground away from the home to a more desirable place.
Crawl Space Sump Pump:
The crawl space sump pump basin is installed first. This is not a small 5-gallon bucket that will lead to a burnt our sump and flood the area. We only install a professional-grade and size basin. We make sure to cut holes in the side and pull the drainage into for maximum water flow. The basin is always perforated to allow even more water to enter the basin. The basin is then surrounded by stone aggregate to act as a filter. Finally, we install the sump pump and seal it with a more proper lid and gasket to keep water from evaporating back into the crawl space raising the humidity level.
Crawl Space Vapor Barrier:
The next step to control moisture is to cover 100% of the ground with a vapor barrier. This should be a reinforced vapor barrier or at a minimum a 6 mil poly. It should also be installed on the walls and wrapped around the pillars and sealed to the vapor barrier on the ground. This is the best way to keep the moisture from the wall and the ground from out.
Crawl Space Vents:
Sealing the crawl space vents and locking out the moisture is a must. Once the hot moist air enters a crawl space and meets the cooler air and materials inside, it will cause condensation due to the dew point being reached on the surfaced. This allows the mold to grow and can also lead to wood rot. We seal all the vents to protect the crawl space year-round.
Crawl Space Dehumidifier:
The most important part after all this work is done is to install a proper size and designed crawl space dehumidifier to remove any remaining excess moisture in the air. Humidity level should be kept under 60% and close to 45% in our opinion. Not installing a dehumidifier in your crawl space and sealing it up will cause even more damage as moisture will build up and have nowhere to go. Never seal a crawl space without a dehumidifier installed to control the humidity levels year-round!
Crawl Space Monitoring:
The final step after making this investment is making sure the system never fails. If it does you need to know as soon as possible so it can be corrected quickly and your investment protected. We offer 24/7 wifi moisture monitoring systems that will alert us if anything isn't working properly. If something does go wrong we can dispatch a tech to get it fix immediately.
