Crawl Space Encapsulation and Waterproofing in Kansas

Crawl Space Encapsulation

When moisture is a problem in your crawl space, you could be inviting a host of other problems into your home such as mold growth, rodents, pests, and insects. Long-term moisture problems or problems that go undetected for a long time can even cause severe structural damage to your home.

The long term damage can be both to the structure of your home as well as to any appliances in the crawl space such as your furnace or water heater. If you have had a water problem for a long time in your crawl space, having mold testing performed can help determine if you have any mold growth in the space. It is important to close off and encapsulate this area to prevent excess humidity and potential pests from entering and causing unnecessary damage to your home.

Why Do I Have Moisture in my Crawl Space?

Moisture enters your crawl space from a variety of sources. Bulk water or standing water is often the result of poor drainage or a plumbing leak. This can occur if your landscaping doesn’t slope away from the home, or if your gutters and downspouts do not direct water away from the foundation.

In other instances, moisture can naturally evaporate from the ground and lead to condensation in your crawl space. If your crawl space has a vent, warm humid air that enters the vent will encounter cooler air in the crawl space and lead to condensation as well.

Installing a Crawl Space Vapor Barrier

Crawl Space Encapsulation

If you have water or moisture problems in your crawl space, there are steps you can take to ensure your crawl space is kept dry and healthy. Installing a crawl space vapor barrier effectively addresses moisture problems, and is a long-term solution for many homeowners.

Prevent Moisture From the Air

Installing vent covers and doors prevents the mixing of hot air and cold air and can reduce the humidity and moisture levels in your crawl space.

Remove Standing Water

Next, any standing water should be removed and sources of the flooding need to be addressed. This can be accomplished by installing a sump pump system and a crawl space drain to remove standing water if flooding occurs.

Encapsulation of the Crawl Space

When moisture evaporates in your crawl space from the ground or walls, encapsulation provides a moisture barrier to stop that moisture from entering your crawl space. A durable liner is used to encapsulate your crawl space and still allows for easy access to your crawl space when needed.

Dehumidifiers

Once encapsulation is complete, a dehumidifier may be used to help prevent the humidity in your crawl space from reaching levels that promote mold growth.
