Some of the problems that arise from a lack of adequate crawlspace waterproofing include:
- Infestation by rodents, insects, and other critters that are attracted to moist environments
- Mold and mildew growth, which require professional mold remediation
- Unpleasant odors that waft into living and working areas
- Unhealthy air packed with pathogens and allergens that flows up into your building, causing health concerns
- Decaying wooden joists, boards, beams, or other structural parts
But all of the above is perfectly preventable with quality crawlspace waterproofing from EverDry Waterproofing. Sealing a crawlspace can even help lower your energy bills and result in a more comfortable environment throughout your building, from warmer floors to healthier air quality to increased storage.
The process of ensuring a waterproof crawlspace differs depending on the specific circumstances of your home or commercial space. If there is standing water, your crawlspace waterproofing contractor may install a sump pump to remove the water from the premises before using dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining moisture from the air. Crawlspace sealing can then begin, using a quality hydrophobic sealant to cover any cracks or seams that could act as entrance points for water. After the crawlspace sealing is complete, the property owner then has the option of whether or not to insulate their newly dried crawlspace with vapor barrier material. A waterproof crawlspace can also be ventilated to prevent other potential air quality issues in the future.
The crawlspace sealing services team at EverDry Waterproofing offers a lifetime warranty on all parts and labor, so you can be sure that your crawlspace will never be the source of unpleasantness such as pests, odors, or unhealthy air again.
