If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
