Just like your body needs regular checkups to stay healthy, your home’s crawl space needs to be inspected to help prevent water damage or other foundation issues. Watch out for pest infestations, increased moisture, signs of mold, musty smells, and humidity inside your home. These are all signs that you might need a crawl space inspection. The sooner Atlanta crawl space experts discover an issue with your home, the sooner you can have it fixed to keep your family safe and healthy.
Humid Climate and Mold Prevention
Crawl space inspection in Atlanta is especially important due to the humidity we experience year-round. H20 Proof & Foundation Repair understands the implications of the constant moisture in the air and signs of potential crawl space issues at your property. Left untreated, mold can lead to health concerns for you and your loved ones.
If your crawl space is dry and prepped correctly with a vapor barrier and insulation, it is much easier to keep it dry and prevent mold from growing in your crawl space. We offer a patented Atlanta crawl space service; it is a moisture-proof encapsulation system that assures a dry, healthy below-grade space for years to come. We can also install sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and drainage systems to address your property’s specific needs.
It’s easy to overlook this seldom-used or thought-of space, but it can have major implications for your home and your bank account. A dry, crack-free crawl space boosts the structural integrity of your entire home. If joists in your crawl space have moisture damage, mold, or rot, the walls and floors of your home can be negatively impacted. When you seek Atlanta crawl space services, be sure to choose a team with expert knowledge of this unfinished space in your home.
An insulated crawl space will help you keep your home at a comfortable temperature more easily, saving you money on bills and helping the environment. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “Homeowners can save an average of 15% on heating and cooling costs by air sealing their homes… including crawl spaces.”
If your crawl space has openings, even small ones, that allow air and moisture in, pests often follow. By properly sealing your crawl space, you can prevent pest infestations. All of our Atlanta crawl space services include checking for pests and recommendations for solutions to address that issue if it is present in your home.
Indoor Air Quality
The H20 Proof & Foundation Repair exclusive crawl space encapsulation system creates a moisture-proof vapor barrier for your crawl space. This stops water intrusion, blocks moisture seepage, controls humidity, and creates extra space for storage. With a completely waterproof crawl space, your home will be protected from mold contamination and unhealthy indoor air. Many of our customers have been breathing in mold spores for months and had no idea. Don’t let that happen to you!
