If your crawl space is damp, don’t wait for it to cause issues, like damaging the supports, affecting the quality of the air in your home or attracting pests. Instead, call K-Mag Basement Solutions and tell them you need crawl space encapsulation in East Peoria IL.
If you haven’t checked recently, it’s time to get an inspection. The crawl space is an important but often ignored part of houses built without a basement. The crawl space allows access to plumbing, wiring and other parts of your house’s infrastructure, and it should be kept dry.
K-Mag will inspect your crawl space and come up with the right solution for your space. Depending on your home, the possibilities might include:
The process involves installing a water vapor barrier on the floors and walls, turning the entire crawl space area into a clean, dry capsule. The water vapor barrier, placed on the soil, keeps ground moisture from seeping into the crawl space. Since up to half of the air in your home comes from your crawl space, improving the crawl space can also improve the air quality in your home.
If moisture is a problem, mold and mildew may grow. And since much of the air in your home started out in your crawl space, it can cause health issues. If any family members are experiencing allergies or flu-like illnesses, breathing in black mold could be to blame.
A wet crawl space also attracts pests.
