Crawl Space Humidity

The crawl space in your home is easily forgotten until you start having a problem. If the area is not properly sealed off, it can create excessive amounts of moisture in the air also known as humidity. When found in high levels, humidity will create a number of problems both underneath the home and inside, including:

  • Wood rot, decay, and warping
  • Damage to the structural integrity of a home
  • Termite and pest infestations
  • Poor indoor air quality
  • Mold and mildew growth

Solutions

SafeBasements™ Crawl Space Dehumidifier

MaxDry

High humidity and moisture underneath your home leads to the growth of hazardous mold and mildew. Mold is a dark green or black fungus that releases spores into the air as it grows. If these spores are inhaled, they can potentially cause a variety of health problems from dangerous respiratory issues to skin rashes.

Installing a dehumidifier system will control the levels of moisture in the air under your home and reduce the humidity to safer levels. Once the dehumidifier is installed, you can rest easier knowing your home and family's health is in safe hands.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

The SafeBase™ Healthy Living Encapsulation system

You can also encapsulate your crawl space in addition to installing a dehumidifier under your home. Doing so will seal it off from the outside environment keeping moisture and unwanted creatures like snakes, mice, spiders, and other pests out. Sealing your crawl space helps your home stay energy efficient by keeping the cool air and heat inside and prevents the warmer/cooler temperatures outside from getting in.

Using the Healthy Living Encapsulation System from SafeBasements™, we will install a white, durable, and strong vapor barrier that is attached to the surface of the wall and floor. The barrier permanently seals the area off keeping your crawl space safe, dry, and healthy.

With each encapsulation, we install a unique drain system designed to improve water drainage underneath the floor liner. The system has a 100% polypropylene design that prevents moisture damage unlike other systems on the market. Because every home is different, we have a wide selection of liners to choose from depending on your home's needs.
