The home is only as healthy as the space below it.

  • Energy costs are higher in a wet crawlspace
  • Moisture rises up into the house
  • Moisture causes mold. The stack effect can event affect the attic
  • An unhealthy crawlspace equals unhealthy air inside
  • The long term effects apply to your physicals health as well as the health of the structure
  • You may not notice there is a problem until considerable damage has already occurred

The best way to keep your crawlspace moisture from affecting the health of the inside of the home is to have Mold & Mildew Solutions install a full encapsulation vapor barrier system to the walls and floors of the space under your home.

Our custom fit fabric moisture blocking system is sealed and tight. It is proven to reduce ground water seepage from affecting the wood and structure under your house.

Here are the five steps Mold & Mildew Solutions suggest that you call us to do in your crawlspace to create a dry and healthy home for your loved ones.

  1. Remove organic materials and trash from crawlspace so that mold doesn’t feed on it.
  2. Divert water outside the crawlspace by installing a sump pump and drainage trenching.
  3. Completely isolate ground and seal out wall moisture by installing a heavy-duty crawlspace liner over the entire ground, walls, and concrete columns.
  4. Seal up vents and cracks in the foundations so that outside air and moisture doesn’t come in. 
  5. Install a dehumidify to condition and dry out air properly to prevent condensation and mold growth.

Crawl space encapsulation refers to the permanently fastening a heavy-duty moisture retardant fabric to the floors and walls of your crawl space. This seals out moisture and humidity and in turn blocks mold and harmful contaminants from rising into the foundation and the living area of the home. For an encapsulated crawlspace system to work efficiently all cracks’, crevices, and openings must be sealed. This includes sealing around pipes and penetrations in the subfloor, sealing foundation wall holes, sealing foundation vents, and installing a proper sealed crawlspace door. Now that all the seams and entrances have been taken care of you have to condition the space to keep it dry and the right environment. Mold & Mildew Solutions can install a commercial grade dehumidifier that helps keep your air dry and clean all the time.
