Choosing a Crawl Space Waterproofing & Encapsulation Contractor

HomeProMatch - Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

There is also a danger of foundation damage, mold growth, and home comfort issues. If you're concerned about your crawl space, HomePro Match makes it easy to find a reliable crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation contractor today. With energy-efficient dehumidifiers, new sump pump systems, and a moisture-proof vapor barrier, they can create a dry, healthy crawl space.

What is crawl space encapsulation?

Crawl space encapsulation is the process of sealing the crawl space and conditioning the inside air to prevent moisture problems, such as mold, wood rot, musty odors, and insect problems. A heavy-duty liner is added to cover the crawl space floor and walls. Once the crawl space is completely sealed, a dehumidifier is installed to control the humidity level inside the crawl space.

How does a sump pump work in a crawl space?

A sump pump in your crawl space works the same as any other sump pump. By installing a sump pump in your crawl space, you will be able to remove water from that specific area and direct it outside away from your home. Since a crawl space is a much smaller area to work in, there are smaller visions of sump pumps available specially made for these tight spots. Smaller sump pumps for your crawl space still work the same as any regular size one. Reach out to your local crawl space contractor for more information on available products and solutions.

How can I stop water from getting in a crawl space?

Finding water in your home is never good and your crawl space is a common area it can be found in. Luckily, there are solutions out there that can help fix this issue. Drainage systems can be installed in the floor of your crawl space to help remove unnecessary water out and away from your home. There are also sump pumps available to help pump out the water from the crawl space and direct it outside and away from your home. Flood vents are another way to combat water. Installed in the walls of your crawl space, flood vents help drain out water during flood periods. Depending on your needs, you can find the perfect solution for your crawl space water troubles!

What’s the difference between crawl space waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation?

There are several actions you can take to help improve the condition of your crawl space. Before paying for a service, it is important to first understand the difference between your options. Crawl space waterproofing is the act of installing a system to help remove and prevent water intrusion. Waterproofing your crawl space will help keep it dry all year round, therefore preventing mold and mildew growth. On the other hand, crawl space encapsulation helps not only with moisture but also with the appearance of your crawl space. Encapsulating your crawl space helps by providing a clean, sealed look that improves overall home air quality and home energy-efficiency. Sealing the crawl space can also help keep out unwanted mold, dust mites, and other pests.

Do I need a vapor barrier in my crawl space?

If your crawl space experiences excess moisture, poor air quality, dust mites, insects, and pests, it is best to install a vapor barrier. Vapor barriers in your crawl space help detur water from the crawl space, making it harder for mold and mildew to grow. Vapor barriers also improve the overall health and appearance of your crawl space by providing better air quality and efficiency. If your crawl space is filled with dirt, chances are, there are unwanted insects and pests inhabiting that space as well. To combat all of the above issues, contact your local crawl space expert for vapor barrier installation. Learn more.

[wet crawl space]

Why is my crawl space wet?

Have you noticed water in your crawl space recently? More common than not, moisture can build up in your crawl space simply because it is below-grade space, making it in direct contact with the soil underneath. When the ground becomes wet, so can your crawl space. This groundwater can especially be noticeable after periods of heavy rain or snow. Humidity in warmer weather can cause unwanted moisture to build up in your crawl space, making it the perfect environment for mold to grow. Surface water can also form in the crawl space due to water run-off from your roof and gutters. Even plumbing issues such as leaky, dented, and cracked pipes can cause water to leak into your crawl space. To ensure your crawl space is protected from moisture in any kind of weather, contact your local HomePro Match expert for solutions.
