What Are the Sources of Crawl Space Humidity?
Moisture enters your crawl space from different sources. Some of them include the following:
- Foundation Vents
- Ground Water
- Ground Vapor
- Exterior Penetrations
- Leaking Pipes
- Moisture wicking through foundation walls
Multiple sources of moisture will lead to bigger humidity problems. Left unattended for long periods, you could end up with costly structural defects. This is why you need crawl space encapsulation and moisture removal. Crawl space humidity is a common problem for residents in the Kent and Sussex counties. As the humidity grows, the resulting condensation can lead to structural and health-related issues around your home. Some of these include:
- Rot and mold
- The spread of odors and allergens
- Higher utility bills

Crawl Space Moisture Removal: The Seaside Environmental Approach
Your new crawl space starts with a consultation and detailed inspection. After our analysis, we’ll put together a definitive action plan to mitigate any moisture issues and stop them from returning. Some of the ways we might be able to help include:
- Sump pumps
- Vapor barrier
- Sealing foundation vents
For areas with high moisture content in the surrounding soil, we may also construct a French drain system around the perimeter to redirect water intrusion to strategic locations, like a sump pump. We can complete the crawl space moisture removal and waterproofing quickly and efficiently. All components we install (including our sump pumps and dehumidifiers) come from reputable manufacturers known for high-quality products.
