Why should I seal my crawl space?

Most homes in Durham and surrounding areas are built on a foundation with space underneath the house called a crawl space- it allows homeowners and contractors access to the ground level empty space beneath the structure. You may not have realized that moisture can seep into that crawl space through your foundation or from the ground beneath your home. If moisture collects there, mold and mildew are often close behind, since they feed off excess moisture in an area. That can lead to a host of problems, for your home, and the people living inside of it.

Indications that your crawl space has moisture issues:

Some indications that too much moisture may be a problem in your crawl space are:

Musty odor– Do you notice a faint musty or moldy odor in areas of your home? Does your carpet smell musty?

Indoor humidity– Is the air inside your house moist or sticky? Is your inside air affected by moisture fluctuations outside?

Structural Issues– Are there `soft spots’ in your downstairs floor? Are your floorboards buckling in spots, or pulling away from baseboards?

Mold Growth– This is the easiest problem to spot in your crawl space, as mold blooms will show up on interior foundation walls and support beams under your house. Check your crawl space regularly for signs of mold or mildew.

One of the biggest benefits of hiring LiveGreen to encapsulate your crawl space is you get moisture prevention and a vapor barrier. Collected moisture causes mold and mildew problems, but can also lead to pest and rodent infestations, sagging insulation, and filthy ductwork – which can cause problems in the air your family breathes in your home.
