Considering a Sealed Crawl Space? Here are reasons you should…

Sealing a crawl space properly will increase your environmental health and save you money.  The sealing process is simple, resulting in cleaner, healthier living along with many economic benefits.  Crawl space sealing systems can be installed in less than a day.  These systems often transform a musty, unsightly space into a dry and visually pleasing addition to your home or office.

Damp, Musty Odors

Dirt or gravel crawl spaces can retain moisture thus increasing the amount of humidity in your home. These damp areas are often the source of mold and soil gases.  Eliminating mold and soil gas will help remove unpleasant odors emanating throughout living areas.

Destructive Moisture

Moisture produced from an unsealed crawl space can condense on and damage plumbing, air conditioning/heating equipment and ductwork. High moisture levels typically result in warping of and damage to  wood floors found in the surrounding areas.  The building structure itself may also be affected.

Radon

Not all homes are subject to radon gas.  However, if radon is present, a sealed crawl space can help prevent entry into the home.

Energy Costs

Heating and air conditioning equipment work harder as humidity levels increase. A sealed crawl space system provides a vapor barrier which helps prevent moisture from entering living space.

Unsightly

Unfinished crawl spaces are unsightly, not inviting, and result in wasted space. A sealed crawl space system leaves the area clean and usable for storage.

    I thought it was interesting how the article said that moisture can actually damage wood floors and even the building structure itself. I don’t think my crawlspace has any major flaws, but if waterproofing could prevent future moisture damage then I think it would be a good investment on my part. What suggestions would you give for finding a good waterproofing company to seal my crawlspace?
