Crawl Space Repair for Homeowners
Crawl space health, most importantly, is an essential part of your home’s safety and value. Your crawl space walls are your home’s foundation, therefore, if crawl space moisture and dampness are issues it affects the safety of your home and decreases your home’s value.
Wood rot, mold and mildew, and high humidity and condensation are all common in vented, unsealed crawl spaces. Consequently, this is being circulated throughout your home due to the stack effect. A moist, wet crawl space also attracts pests and rodents, all of which can cause serious health issues due to the mess they leave behind.
