The truth is that what happens in your crawlspace can have a significant impact on the rest of your home, including the air you breathe. One major concern with damp or moldy crawlspaces is the potential for health problems. Mold spores can travel through vents and other openings, leading to respiratory issues such as asthma and allergies. Mold also destroys and eats away at your framework and insulation.
We wish it were this easy. The mold that is seen on the surface is the tip of the iceberg. Mold feeds on the material where it’s located and it extends below the surface. Simply wiping it away is temporary and it will most certainly return in a short amount of time. Our team uses the best practices for removing mold.
This happens with various levels of protection from durable vapor and moisture barriers, and crawlspace insulation to full crawlspace encapsulation. These protective waterproofing methods will separate your crawlspace from the ground temperature preventing cold air from making its way into your home. And because your crawlspace temperature and humidity are now controlled, your heating and air system will not have to work as hard resulting in increased energy efficiency.
Prior to our arrival, our software will send out a notification to you that we are on our way! Once there, we conduct a thorough inspection of your foundation and crawlspace and make recommendations as needed.
Yes, installation of all parts and systems comes with a warranty. We also offer our “Impact Guarantee, " best summed up as our guarantee of quality workmanship.
Of course! In fact, you’ll most likely use it more because it will be a nice bright, clean, and dry environment. A few considerations to keep in mind are not to damage the floor barrier by sliding heavy objects, but instead, carry your storage items and place them down gently. Also, don’t store objects right beside the dehumidifier to keep optimal airflow.
The dehumidifiers we install are professional grade and are self-containing units. This means no work on your part. These units are not the same as the plug-ins many have in their basements. And the great news is your crawl space humidity can be monitored from inside your home and adjusted as needed.
