Crawl Space Solutions

Humidity levels in your crawl space can affect the rest of your home.

Have you opened your crawl space and been hit with a musty, smelly odor? Were you changing your air filter and noticed water droplets on the duct work, floor joists, or insulation? Having unconditioned air below your living spaces makes the whole house harder to heat and cool, and also provides the perfect damp setting for mold spores to breed. In the past, we were told that these areas needed to be ventilated. Now, however, we are learning that this area needs to be treated almost as if they were living spaces–they need to be sealed, protected, and fitted with dehumidifiers. In other words, areas that are in contact with your living space affect your living space. So if you have a crawl space or other unconditioned area below your home, what solutions are available?

HealthyAir offers cleaning and sealing solutions to homeowners. The solutions are simple, affordable, and very effective. View the areas in which we provide crawl space solutions.

Crawl Space Humidity Mitigation

This will involve the installation of vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, and insulation. Each situation is unique, and you may not need or want all of these steps, but the entire process is outlined below.

  • We start with a thorough cleaning of the space, including removal of contaminated insulation and debris. This step also, typically includes mold remediation.
  • Installation of a wall-to-wall, durable, 10 mil, reinforced vapor barrier.
  • Attachment of the vapor barrier into the ground and several inches up side walls and piers.
  • Application of closed-cell spray foam insulation overlapping the edge of the vapor barrier and continuing up the wall to floor joists.

The result is an energy efficient, healthy home. HealthyAir‘s Dry Space method described above not only helps mold-proof your home, but the combination of these methods will make it more energy efficient and comfortable. Closed cell spray foam insulation seals the space to prevent drafts. We use this type of insulation instead of open-cell foam insulation because it will not trap or absorb water, making the crawl space area an environment ideal for a healthy mold-free home.

HealthyAir can help you dry out even the dampest spaces and turn them into drier, healthier foundations for your home that aren’t breeding grounds for mold spores. Read the EPA’s guidance for creating and maintaining dry air below you home. Click Here For more information on our crawl space solutions, contact us now.

Crawl Space Sealing in Alpharetta, GA

We recently moved into a new house and the crawl space was very moist and unusable. We had the guys at HealthyAir come and put in a vapor barrier to seal it off. They recommended we use a dehumidifier and insulation to really make it protected for good. We can now use it for our extra storage.
