Why do I need to keep my Crawl Space Dry?

Tuesday, January 26th, 2021 by Kimberly Mobley

Health and Safety

Mold and Mildew love dark, damp spaces. Increased moisture in the crawl space can cause mold and mildew to grow beneath the home and create an environment for termites and pests. This can cause unpleasant odors in your home and contribute to allergy issues.

Prevent Future Damage

Mold and rot can spread quickly in a damp crawl space compromising the integrity of the beams and joists beneath your home.  Structural damage can lead to sagging supports over time. Crawl space and foundation damage may cause uneven floors, sticking doors and windows, and interior cracks in your drywall. Our Design Specialists can address your issues and repair any damages you have while preventing future problems.

Peace of Mind and Energy Savings

50% of the air you breathe comes from your crawl space. By encapsulating your crawl space you can have peace of mind that you will be circulating cleaner, dryer air throughout your home. Not to mention, the CleanSpace liner can help to insulate your floors helping to keep them warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, saving you money on your power bill.

Mold and mildew in crawl spaces is a problem in homes throughout the southeast. Some methods to remove mold such as bleach and water are only temporary. Mold spores can return and begin growing again in just a few days. The best way to permanently rid your crawl space of mold and mildew is to have one of our design specialists install our patented encapsulation system. This combined with a self draining Sedona dehumidifier will keep your crawl space dry and provide cleaner, dryer air in your home for years to come.
