Due to the high humidity in Wisconsin, if your home has a crawl space, you are likely sitting on an unhealthy environment. It is possible, due to the “stack effect,” the same unhealthy air in your crawl space is polluting the air in the rest of your home. The “stack effect” causes the air in your home to move upward. Even though your crawl space isn’t livable, its environment contributes to or diminishes, the healthy living space upstairs. Moisture and humidity can creep into your crawlspace, creating the perfect conditions for mold and mildew to grow. Mold and mildew can grow on cardboard boxes, wood floors, insulation, and even drywall. Everdry provides vapor barrier and crawl space liner installation, which can prevent excess moisture, soil gases, mold, mildew, and dry rot from infesting your home.
Everdry Crawl Space Repair Commits to the Long-Term Fix
Here at Everdry, we pride ourselves on treating the source of your repair requests. We are not interested in the Band-Aid method, and we know Wisconsin homeowners aren’t either. You cannot merely treat the symptoms of excess moisture in a crawl space. You have to tackle the root of the issue. For this reason, we work to combat the four most common crawl space repair mistakes.
- Applying fiberglass to a crawl space for insulation: While fiberglass is a popular, energy-saving solution for home insulation, it is not suitable for crawl spaces. Fiberglass can trap water and become saturated when exposed to high levels of moisture. The soaked fiberglass will further dampen your crawl space. This trapped moisture creates the perfect environment for mold and other pests.
- Opting for spray foam insulation: Spray foam insulation is also ineffective in crawl spaces. It can trap water between the foam and the wall resulting in wood rot and other moisture-related issues.
- Leaving vents open: While air circulation is important for all air quality, it should be controlled in crawl spaces. Vents should always be covered in crawl spaces as open vents can result in more collected moisture.
- Encapsulating a crawl space without drainage: Even if you have a vapor barrier or crawl space liner installed, you still must account for drainage. If drainage is not considered, water will continue to pool and damage your crawl space. At Everdry, we construct an efficient drainage system to direct water away from the crawl space and keep the area dry.
