Understanding the moisture and humidity in your Crawl Space

The health of your home is affected by humidity and water in your crawl space. Most homeowners are told to open the vents in the crawl space to resolve any water problems. Unfortunately this is just a myth. The vents are intended to let the air flow through the crawlspace but air in the crawl space flows up and into the house instead of horizontally through the vent. Whatever the condition of your crawl space, the air from the crawls space is part of the air your breathing.

So, is it time to inspect your crawl space?

Most homeowners don’t realize that they are living above mold.

Crawl Space Solutions and Products

Vapor Barrier – Crawl Space Encapsulation 

A vapor barrier isolates your house from the soils and earth around your home, making sure moisture never gets into your home. The vapor barrier process is known as crawl space encapsulation. It will keep out the moisture but also bugs and other critters that can otherwise enter. Crawl space encapsulation will also convert your crawl space into a dry and functional healthy space. We use a 20-mil liner that is installed across the floor of the crawlspace, which is then mechanically attached to the crawl space walls. The vents are sealed to keep the damp air from entering.

Wetness Control, Dehumidifiers

According to the EPA and American Lung Association, homes should keep the humidity level between 30 and 50 percent. A quality high capacity dehumidifier can maintain proper humidification levels and is especially important in the more humid areas of Connecticut.
