Install airtight doors & vent covers
-Sealing crawl space doors and vents stops the cycle of cold, humidity, and moisture from entering.
-Vented crawl spaces allow an access point for insects, animals, and all types of pests, inviting infestations into your home.

Remove standing water sources
-Eliminate sources of flooding in the crawl space by installing a crawl space drain and a sump pump system.
-Although this eliminates flooding water from the crawl space, moisture can still enter directly through the concrete floor in the form of water vapor.

Encapsulate & Insulate the Crawl Space
-Crawl space liner is installed to prevent moisture from seeping through the floors and concrete walls.
-After a durable 35mil reinforced liner is installed, all penetrations are sealed and all seams are taped to ensure no moisture bypasses the liner.

Dehumidification Installation/Moisture Control
-Installing an energy efficient, self-draining crawl space dehumidifier will keep the crawl space dry and prevent mold from germinating.
-The dehumidifier includes a filter that removes particles from the air to ensure the crawl space is permanently protected from mold, dust mites, and mildew.
