What Causes Crawl Space Problems?

Water or moisture inside a crawl space can cause many different structural problems. Moisture will eventually evaporate, rise, and spread throughout the rest of the house. This can cause wood rot, mold, and other poor structural conditions. Moisture is able to enter into a crawl space through open crawl space vents. Any exposed dirt residing in the crawl space easily absorbs the moisture entering through an open vent. A number of issues contribute to crawl space moisture, including:

  • Humid or rainy weather
  • Poor drainage systems
  • Plumbing leaks

When water or moisture develops in a crawl space, serious problems begin in the rest of your home. At Foundation Medix, we offer crawl space repair services to help combat these problems you may be facing.

What Are Your Crawl Space Solutions Options?

Expert crawl space solutions rid your home of mold, moisture, and humidity while improving your home’s health and energy efficiency. Foundation Medix has several methods of resolving crawl space issues, including:

  • Installing a concrete floor – Installing a concrete floor is one way to isolate your home from increased mold, radon, and humidity levels associated with an exposed dirt or gravel crawl space.
  • Crawl space drainage – We will drain unwanted water from your crawl space with a sump pump.
  • Conditioned crawl space – We can connect a vent from your HVAC system to the crawl space. Fresh air will constantly be entering your crawl space, which will create healthy airflow.
  • Crawl space dehumidification – We will remove moist, damp air from your crawl space with the installation of a dehumidifier specifically designed for this purpose.
  • EZ Breathe (crawl space) – We can install an EZ Breathe (Crawl Space) device to remove moist, damp air from your crawl space.
  • Crawl space insulation – We will treat crawl space walls by installing a specialized radiant reflective insulation which lowers energy costs and stops future mold growth.
