Identifying Moisture Problem
A moisture problem in your home may be obvious, but oftentimes it is not. Signs that you may have a moisture problem that needs to be addressed include:
- Musty odor
- Visible mold growth
- Condensation on windows and/or walls
- Asthma and/or allergy
- Corrosion of building materials
It may be possible to control moisture with these at-home solutions.
- Use a Dehumidifier: A dehumidifier works by removing moisture from the air. Dehumidifiers reduce humidity and dust levels in the home, and can help lessen mold odors.
- Remove Carpet: Carpet is more likely to hold onto moisture than hardwood or tile floors. In addition, carpet often contains allergens, such as dust mites.

A French drain collects water inside of a crawlspace and directs it outside of the house, eliminating standing water to protect your home from decay. French drains make your home less susceptible to termites and other pests.
Sump pumps remove water that has collected in a home, often the basement. These systems are necessary in areas with standing water, where elevation doesn’t permit natural water flow.
Automatic Temp Vents
Automatic temp vents open and shut by temperature variance to ensure adequate ventilation in a crawlspace, helping reduce the risk of termites and other pests.
Vapor barriers are a thin layer of material installed in a crawlspace that prevent ground moisture from rising to the substructure. In addition, vapor barriers protect ductwork, wiring, prevent mold and more.
Crawlspace Care Installation
Crawlspace care installation seals the crawlspace for better air quality, energy efficiency and fewer pests. This type of moisture control protects your home from mold and mildew growth, and protects your substructure from decay.
