If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
