If you have standing water in the basement following a big rainfall, it is not good. If this water is not controlled, it will keep you from being able to store items in the basement and even prevent you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity can ultimately cause the growth of mildew and mold which can in the future be a cause of life threatening health problems.

If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only go into when there is a problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control problems in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
