Your home’s crawlspace may be out of sight, but moisture issues under your home can cause a range of problems inside your home. Your damp crawlspace could be creating a musty smell, causing mold contamination and making your family sick. If any of this sounds familiar, don’t panic! The team at All Things Good has effective crawlspace treatment systems that can protect your home and your family.
What is a Crawlspace?
In the Contract Costa, CA area, many homes are built with abbreviated basements called crawlspaces. They allowed cool air to circulate under the house and provided a location for ductwork, plumbing and other systems. Some homes still use crawlspaces as a storage location. Often, these spaces under the hose were vented to allow the moist air to flow out and keep the area cool and dry. Unfortunately, these passive air vents don’t work very well and the crawlspace can become a source of excess moisture buildup. Unfortunately, your crawlspace can also be home to several other hazards, including wild animals and pests, dust, allergens, unpleasant odors and mold.
All Things Good Offers Crawlspace Solutions
Most homeowners don’t like to think about all the unpleasant issues in their crawlspaces, but these issues need to be addressed since they can pose home health and structural problems. Our commonsense approach can find the best solution to fit your home’s unique crawlspace issues. We’ll assess your home moisture issue, then design a moisture treatment system that ensures your crawlspace won’t cause problems in the future.
Removing Water In Your Crawlspace
All Things Good has a number of crawlspace solutions depending on your home’s unique needs. In some cases, improving drainage and adding a sump pump will go a long way to improving moisture issues from under your house. If your home’s HVAC ductwork is located in the crawlspace area, we’ll want to seal any leaks and insulate the ductwork to ensure your conditioned air is delivered without allergens or mold from the crawlspace. Some crawlspaces may require encapsulation, where our technician will clean and seal the crawlspace area then install an airtight vapor barrier to keep water out and keep the space dry. Some spaces may also require additional ventilation and a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture.
