At Southern Goodman, we’ve seen our share of scary crawl spaces. A consistently damp crawl space can become a breeding ground for dangerous mold spores, poor indoor air quality, and structural damage to your home. Drafty, uninsulated crawl spaces can also increase your heating and cooling costs.
If you have an vented dirt floor crawl space, here are just a few of the problems you may encounter:
- Mold (High Humidity)
- Poor Indoor Air Quality
- Wood Rot
- Musty Smells
- AC / Heat System Damage
- Pipe Damage
Fortunately, many of these crawl space problems can be solved with a process called crawl space encapsulation.
Crawl Space Encapsulation
Southern Goodman is the local leader for crawl space encapsulation in Richmond, Virginia. We know that the best way to fix crawl space issues in your home or office through encapsulation.
Here’s how our crawl space encapsulation process works:
First, we install a heavy-duty plastic liner, which will seal both ground and foundation walls to block moisture from entering your crawl space.
Then, we seal off the outside vents to prevent unconditioned air from entering the crawlspace.
Finally, we monitor and correct your crawl space relative humidity levels to ensure that your crawl space is dry and protected.
Besides controlling unwanted moisture and improving your home’s overall health, crawl space encapsulation also helps to improve your home’s overall energy efficiency, with some of our clients reporting 20 percent reductions in their heating and cooling costs.
