Moisture in your home’s crawlspace can result in many problems for the structure of your home, quality of air in your home, and even your health. High relative humidity can produce surface condensation, mildew and mold fungi, musty odors which can aggravate your respiratory system. Moisture can deteriorate floor joist, beams, subflooring, insulation, and electrical-mechanical systems. If your Charlotte crawlspace has excessive moisture it can eventually cause warping to the subflooring making it difficult to close doors and cabinets. Since crawlspace dampness always moves toward the drier upstairs areas, higher humidity will result in costlier heating and air conditioning bills. The wet crawlspace will result in sagging of the insulation because of the water, which makes it lose the R-value. Lastly, wet crawlspaces and basements reduce the value of your home.
Moisture can penetrate Charlotte Crawlspaces in a variety of ways, but the easiest way is the natural transmission of water vapor from the ground surface into a crawlspace without vapor barrier protection. In order, to reduce the amount of water vapor penetrating into the Charlotte crawlspace, we recommend having gutter extensions that route away from the building. This will discharge rain water away from foundation of the home. After the irrigation system is installed, our professional crawlspace inspectors recommend having annual examinations of the plumbing to ensure there are no leaks especially after heavy rainfall.
