Crawlspace Waterproofing

Crawlspace Waterproofing

The crawlspace of a home is an area that most homeowners (hopefully) don’t have to worry too much about. But a crawlspace with moisture issues can be a major health hazard to anyone inside the house. Crawlspaces with moisture and leaks in them can lead to health hazards such as exposure to radon, methane, rodents, and insects. The polluted airflow from these crawlspaces must be dealt with.

By waterproofing your crawlspace, you keep your family healthy and prevent serious issues.

Examine your crawlspace to determine if it needs to be waterproofed. A buildup of moisture or moist soil are warning signs of potential issues. Better yet, enlist the help of Basement Technologies to get the job done right.

Why Crawlspace Waterproofing?

Some of the issues that can be resolved or prevented by waterproofing your crawlspace include:

  • Wet insulation
  • Mold
  • Foundational damage
  • Poor air quality
  • Mildew/musty smell in basement
  • High cooling costs
  • Insect and/or rodent problems

Even if there is generally no danger of flooding or natural disasters in your area, water can still infiltrate your crawl space. Once there, it can freeze during winter months and expand, causing damage to your foundation. And foundation repairs are difficult and costly.

Moisture can also be an invitation for insects to take up residence in your crawlspace. With increased insect activity, rodents are likely to find their way inside the crawlspace. Dead rodents can also pollute the air quality of the home.

Many homeowners don’t know that much of the air they breathe is circulated through the crawlspace. Issues with the crawlspace can seriously affect overall household air quality. The effects can be particularly bothersome for children with allergies.

How Does Crawlspace Waterproofing Work?

To waterproof your crawlspace, a professional will encapsulate the crawlspace with a polyethylene barrier. This barrier will cover the dirt floor and run up the wall. The barrier will also be sealed. A professional will then use an industrial grade dehumidifier to control the humidity level. The crawlspace will also need air exchange. By exchanging warmer air from upstairs the crawlspace will be kept at a proper level of humidity.

There are systems designed to draw moisture up from under the encapsulated area. These systems will draw moisture out of the soil, preventing it from seeping into the crawlspace
