Professional Crawl Space Encapsulation
If you have a crawl space underneath your home, then you know that moisture and humidity can be a problem for your home. Damp and humid crawl spaces can lead to a number of issues, including sagging floors, mold growth, and excess humidity in your home. Your crawl space also houses some important systems for your home including your HVAC ducts. Keeping this area protected from the elements can ensure that your home and family stay healthier longer.
Our team at Maryland Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing specializes in providing complete protection for your crawl space by installing a crawl space barrier. This process is known as crawl space encapsulation and is designed to both seals your crawl space and control humidity levels. They are a combination of products designs specifically for crawl spaces and have been proved to work for years. The main piece of the system is the vapor barrier which acts as a protective seal closing off all seams of your crawl space from the outside. In other instances, water diversion systems and sump pumps may be installed as well to help control the water that comes into your crawl space.
What Is A Vapor Barrier?
Vapor barriers are an important part of the crawl space encapsulation process because the prevent the excess water and moisture from entering your crawl space. Our vapor barriers are constructed of a high quality reinforced resin that is specifically designed for crawl spaces to be completely waterproof and mold resistant. The vapor barrier is laid along the entire crawl space floor and up the walls to the floor joists to provide a complete seal.
Crawl Space Humidity Control
It is important that once water is being kept out of the area, any excess humidity in the area is controlled properly. Our team uses a specially designed dehumidifier made by Santa Fe to help regulate the humidity levels and prevent the moisture from causing damage to your floor joists. By installing a crawl space dehumidifier, we can ensure the area is kept at a proper humidity level. When the humidity in a crawl space is kept at the correct levels, this can help prevent toxic mold growth that can be dangerous to you, your family and your pets.
