Whether you use your crawlspace for extra storage or keep it out of sight and out of mind, it is important that poor crawlspace conditions be addressed in a professional way to avoid serious effects on your home.
Water and significant moisture in a home’s crawlspace can give rise to mold, mildew, and fungus on the crawlspace insulation, the subfloor, and on other structural wood members of your house. The mold and moisture can lead to wood rot, attract wood-damaging pests, and contribute to unhealthy conditions. The moisture can also damage the longevity and effectiveness of the crawl space insulation.
Some common symptoms of problems include:
- Musty odors in the lower level and upper living space.
- Insect or rodent infestation
- Poor indoor air quality
- Sweating or excess condensation on ductwork
- Wood rot
- Cold, uncomfortable or buckling floors
- Mold and mildew
- Dampness or standing water in crawlspace
Little Corner Construction tailors proper crawl space repair to your home’s particular situation. A complete solution often can include crawl space waterproofing, mold remediation, dehumidifcation, and insulation of the crawl space. Sealing the crawlspace with an encapsulation system, adding vent covers, and replacing old crawl space doors is also a great option. Properly encapsulating the crawl space protects your home from water, moisture, bugs, mice, and foul odors.
