Why Do Crawl Spaces Become Damp and Moldy?
Your crawl space is an integral part of your home’s structure. It’s more than a place to dump personal belongings you no longer need. It plays an important role in the state of your home’s indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Poorly constructed crawl spaces are more vulnerable to the elements and susceptible to mold growth. Over time, damage will follow, causing problems in the floor immediately above the space. At Seaside Environmental, we are the expert crawl space repair company you can trust. We are one of the most popular crawl space companies in Ocean View, Delaware. Our happy clients live across Sussex and Kent counties. Do you live in these areas? We can make you happy too!
The old school building science, was to build homes with foundation vents. The thought process was to close them in the winter time to keep cold air out, and open them in the summer time to air out the crawl space. This approach would work if we lived in an arid climate, but here in Delaware we have high humidity for several months out of the year. These foundation vents allow the humid air to get into the crawl space and create a plethora of problems. Crawl space encapsulation, can help protect against this moisture intrusion.
