Crawl Space Repair and Encapsulation

Do you have a wet or musty smelling crawlspace?

If so, you should consider crawl space repairs. Did you know that over 40% of the air that you breathe on the first floor of the home comes from the basement or crawl space? Because of this crawl space repair, crawlspace waterproofing and encapsulation of your crawlspaces is essential to your family’s health.

What is a Crawl Space?

A crawl space is a shallow, unfinished area within a building such as your home, typically located between the ground and the first floor. In homes with crawlspaces, the living area is so close to the crawl space that moisture and unsafe air infiltrate the home, causing potential health hazards.

A crawl space is usually too low for standing and serves as access to plumbing, electrical wiring, and sometimes heating and cooling systems. While not as readily accessible or functional as a basement, crawl spaces are crucial for maintaining a building’s structural integrity and overall health.

Keeping the crawl space clean is vital for several reasons. Firstly, it prevents the buildup of moisture, which can lead to mold growth, wood rot, and structural damage. Secondly, a clean crawl space helps to deter pests like rodents and insects, which can infiltrate the living areas above and pose health risks. Lastly, maintaining cleanliness in the crawl space ensures better indoor air quality, as pollutants and allergens are less likely to seep into the home through the floorboards.

Regular inspection and maintenance of the crawl space are essential for the overall well-being of any building.

Crawl Space Problems and Their Solutions

At Greenserve Advanced Energy Solutions, we help our customers in Charlotte, Salisbury and  Winston-Salem by getting to the root of the waterproofing problem.

  • Crawl Space Drainage System -If there are issues with standing water, we begin by installing a perimeter drainage system prior to the encapsulation which is an essential part of the waterproofing repair process. We then run this drainage system into our GrateSump™ Sump Pump System to remove the water from the crawl space.
  • DimpleShield Drainage Matting – This dimpled plastic material may be used on high footings or concrete floors to assist with crawl space drainage repairs.
  • Crawl Space Vent Covers -Most crawl spaces have been vented due to antiquated building codes. We now know that venting a crawl space creates big problems and it’s necessary to seal any vents or areas where outside air can get in. We have patented crawl space vent covers to solve this issue.
  • CrawlShield™ Encapsulation System -To complete the process of sealing the crawl space, we install a patented crawl space encapsulation system to completely eliminate vapors and odors rising from the ground; creating a layer of protection between the dirt floor and your living space which also helps in lowering your home’s heating bills while making the upper levels living spaces more comfortable.
  • Crawl Space Dehumidification System -After the area is sealed, the moisture level will need to be controlled and brought down to a relative humidity below 50%, using our high-efficiency dehumidification systems
