Crawlspace Waterproofing & Crawlspace
Dirt or crawl space floors inside the home transmit
humidity, odors and radon gas. They may provide rodents and insects an easy path into the upper living portions
of the home. The humidity and dampness that is inherent in a crawlspace may also cause structural damage to the
wood framing, carpets, floors and walls. This environment is a breeding ground for mold and mildew, all of which
present a real problem. The homeowner might consider pouring concrete over the wet crawlspace floor, but in a
post construction setting, this is often unrealistic and impractical. The best method is to use proper crawl
space encapsulation techniques using a crawl space vapor barrier and a drawl space
Crawl Space Encapsulation
Crawlspace waterproofing involves three things, keeping moisture from getting into the crawl space,
keeping moisture in a crawl space from getting into your house, and keeping the air inside your crawlspace
dry. The crawl space encapsulation process starts with placing a vapor barrier over the crawlspace floor
and foundation keeping outside air out and crawl space dampness in.
Crawl Space Vapor Barrier
Unencapsulated crawl spaces can leak moisture and
mold spores into your house, adversely affecting the health of your family and
promoting the proliferation of mold. A crawl space vapor barrier is a physical shield placed around a crawl
space to keep moisture from escaping into other parts of your home. Crawl space vapor barriers must cover
the entire floor as well as the foundation in order to be effective.
Crawl Space Dehumidifier
Not only do you need to keep outside moisture from getting into your crawl space, but you also need to
make sure the air inside stays dry. In order for crawl space encapsulation to be effective, the air needs
to be moisture-free, because of this, a proper crawl space dehumidifier
needs to be put in place. Our patented crawl space dehumidifiers such as the
Humid-Evac® will make sure your crawl space remains moisture free, guaranteed!
Crawl Space Waterproofing Products
Our Crawl Space Conduit® is a concrete floor replacement for when concrete is
unrealistic in a post construction setting. BONAIR BY Humidex, Air Mop®
2, and the Humid-Evac® are all an easy, efficient way to reduce the effect of
damaging and uncomfortable humidity in your home. Crawl Space Conduit® creates a dynamic
air exchange that expels humid indoor air, resulting in a comfortable, dry, healthy living environment.
Finally, The Curtain Drain™ and the Lawn Magnum® are designed to
eliminate water from entering the crawlspace due to exterior pooling.
When crawl space waterproofing solutions such as the Lawn Magnum®, Bubbler
Pot, the Baseboard, and the Water Trek are put in place by our
technicians, your wet crawlspace will be dry in no time.
