Crawl Space Problems

You might not know if you really need crawl space encapsulation, but you should be aware of the fact every crawl space needs protection. Over time moisture and humidity can lead to serious problems. If your Northern Alabama or NW Georgia home’s crawl space has been unprotected for years, adding a protective layer and controlling any water intrusion can help you avoid larger issues down the road, make your home more comfortable, and increase your energy efficiency.

Uneven or Slopping Floors in Your Northern Alabama or NW Georgia Home

As moisture gathers in your crawl space, it will soften the wood in the building’s structure and cause it to rot. Weakening support beams will cause your floors to droop or feel bouncy under your feet, and you might also notice that the floors appear uneven or slanted from one end of a room to the other.

Standing Water in Your Crawl Space

If you’re like most people, chances are that you rarely inspect the crawl space of your Northern Alabama or NW Georgia, home or business. Water can gather and pool on your crawl space floor, leading to mold, mildew, pest infestations, and structural issues. Our crawl space encapsulation and drainages systems will create a barrier and move water away from your home or business.

Mold Growing in Your Crawl Space

Once mold begins to grow in your crawl space, it can release spores that travel into your living spaces. As people breathe these in, they can develop respiratory infections, skin conditions, and other health issues. Unless you take action to prevent mold growth in your Northern Alabama or NW Georgia crawl space, mold will continue to thrive, grow, and pose a serious threat to the occupants of your building.
