If you've got a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
