Crawl Space Repair
If your home has a crawlspace, there’s a high probability your house is sitting on a unhealthy environment. And due to “stack effect” (which causes air in a home to move upward), it’s possible that unhealthy air is moving up throughout your home. Due to the high humidity in Wisconsin, having a healthy crawlspace is especially important for the overall health of your home.
Even though a Crawlspace is not a livable space, making this space healthy contributes to healthy living space upstairs. Unhealthy crawl spaces, due to moisture and humidity creeping in, creates an environment for mold and mildew to grow on card board boxes, wood floors, insulation, drywall and other surfaces.
In the late 1990’s, vapor barriers where hardly used. Now vapor barriers are used in Crawl Spaces to prevent soil gases and unhealthy are from moving up throughout the house. And with a crawl space liner, you can help prevent soil gases, mold, mildew, and dry rot from forming.
