Take Insulation & Mold Prevention to the Next Level
One of the great things about our North Carolina climate is that we don’t live in a dry, arid climate. We get plenty of rain that allows us to enjoy a lush green landscape. This can, however, also lead to some drainage problems under our homes. Excess moisture under your house can lead to a plethora of problems, such as mold growth, termite infestation, foundation damage, as well as indoor air quality issues.
Up to 40% of ground floor air is cycled in from your crawlspace, so if your home’s crawlspace is showing signs of water incursion, crawlspace encapsulation is the affordable waterproofing solution that will protect your air quality!
Signs You Need Crawlspace Waterproofing
The signs of too much moisture in your crawlspace are subtle, so make sure to be on the lookout for them so you can prevent water problems before getting expensive!
- Condensation on your crawlspace walls.
- Visible water stains or mold spores.
- Small cracks in the brick or mortar.
- Puddling on the dirt floor.
- Damp insulation between floor joists.
- A musty, mildewy smell.
How Crawlspace Encapsulation Solves Your Water Problems
If you’re seeing the signs of water incursion in your crawlspace, call 72 Degrees to perform crawlspace encapsulation. With encapsulation, your crawlspace is completely sealed with a fungicidal vapor barrier that prevents water and insects from getting into your crawlspace. Not only does this solve your water problems; it also prevents invasions from termites and vermin and kills mold spores on contact, improving your home’s overall air quality.
