If you think there might be a problem in your crawl space, we will send a crawl space expert to your home to offer you a free estimate for fixing your crawl space. Many people try to complete a crawl space encapsulation on their own, and they end up spending more money for an inferior solution that is not made to last. Our four step process includes:

  1. Fix groundwater seepage:  This may include regrading the soil and placing a sump pump
  2. Isolate the house from the earth: This step involves placing a drainage matting and then placing a CleanSpace vapor barrier over the matting.
  3. Seal the vents and other outside leaks: Crawl space vents are not effective, in fact, they greatly increase the humidity in the crawl space, allowing the conditions for mold growth. It is essential to seal crawl space vents to keep the outside air away from the crawl space.
  4. Condition the crawl space: Placing a dehumidifier in the crawl space works along with the other steps to make sure that there is no moisture in the crawl space. The dehumidification system is the 'cherry on top' of the crawl space solution.
