Crawl Space Waterproofing
Crawlspace waterproofing involves three things – preventing moisture from getting into the crawlspace, preventing crawlspace moisture from getting into the house, and keeping the air inside the crawlspace dry.
The crawlspace waterproofing and encapsulation process starts with placing a vapor barrier over the crawlspace floor and foundation to keep the outside air out and crawlspace dampness in. Unencapsulated crawlspaces can leak moisture and mold spores into your house, adversely affecting the health of your family and promoting the proliferation of mold. A crawlspace vapor barrier is a physical shield placed around a crawl space to keep moisture from escaping into other parts of your home. Crawlspace vapor barriers must cover the entire floor as well as the foundation in order to be effective.
Not only do you need to keep outside moisture from getting into your crawlspace, but you also need to make sure the air inside stays dry. In order for crawlspace encapsulation to be effective, the air needs to be moisture-free. Because of this, a proper crawlspace dehumidifier needs to be put in place. Our patented crawlspace dehumidifiers such as the Humid-Evac® guarantee that your crawlspace will remain moisture-free.
Drainage is an efficient way to control water penetration through foundation walls and to prevent moisture and condensation problems in crawlspaces.
Crawlspace Sump Pumps
When water enters your crawlspace, the sump pump begins to work and pumps the water out of the crawlspace through a discharge line. This is the key to removing groundwater in your crawlspace. With a good sump pump, you can keep the crawlspace free of water buildup and keep groundwater below the grade. We have all the sump pump solutions you need to deal with your wet crawlspace problems.
Crawlspaces are known for moisture problems. When a house is built it is always a good idea to insulate the crawlspace in the proper places so that you do not damage your house.
