Our crawlspace services in Waynesville include dehumidification, encapsulation, and waterproofing.
The crawlspace in a structure is located underneath the ground and stores electrical components, plumbing, and other substructures of the home or office. You probably don’t spend much, if any, time in your crawlspace. In fact, this area is typically only accessed when a repair needs to be done. But without proper care and attention, your crawlspace can become a problem. If it’s not sealed or waterproofed, pests and moisture can come in, causing mold growth and an infestation of insects and spiders. Its location under the ground also puts it at higher risk for flooding and excessive moisture.
If your home or office is located in Waynesville, North Carolina, we can provide crawlspace services. At Dry Foundation Technologies, our crawlspace services include dehumidification, encapsulation, and waterproofing. We can perform an inspection of your crawlspace to find out whether it has too much moisture. If so, we can use a dehumidifier to get the moisture level back to the proper level, and then talk about options to prevent excess humidity in the future. It is critical to get the problem that is causing higher moisture levels under control before we proceed with additional crawlspace services.
One option is to install a sump pump in the crawlspace, which can automatically turn on when it senses water above a certain level. This can prevent water from rising too high and causing further damage. Encapsulation of a crawlspace involves applying products that prevent water vapor issues, which can help reduce moisture, as well.
