A Clear and Present Danger

50%
of all respiratory illnesses are caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air.
50%
of American homes have mold problems.
10%
of all US produced wood used to repair rot-damage costs $17 billion annually.
30%
is how much the average home wastes in heating and cooling costs with a subpar crawl space.

What Lies Beneath...

Most homeowners never see the problems plaguing their crawl spaces until it's too late. Moisture - whether from standing water, active leaks, or humidity and evaporation issues - is the unseen cause of disastrous mold, rot, and structural damage below a home.

Even when structural damages aren't accumulating in a problem crawlspace, mold, mildew, and other air quality impacting factors have a costly effect on the health and safety of everyone living above. Through a phenomenon called the stack effect, warm air rises and drags cooler air from the crawl space through vents and floorboards, bringing with it mold spores, dust, and bad air to circulate around the entire home.

HVAC systems that have ducts running through a crawl space preset added issues by moving contaminated air forcibly through the home. Many of these systems suffer from poor installations, unsealed ducts, and condensation-prone areas that can compound the pest and moisture problems a crawl space has.

For homes that have completely fixed and closed crawl space, but did not deploy a monitoring kit, homeowners find themselves in the dark again about what's going on beneath their homes. If the job was not properly executed, or an event has threatened the space's integrity, moisture issues could invade the space again and cost the homeowner more time and money to resolve.

What's in Your Crawl Space?

Mold

Almost every home has some type of mold growing...

Mold grows at 70°F and 74% humidity on natural and damp organic materials and can begin to grow in as little as 24-48 hours after water gets into contact with these materials.

Wood Rot

Wood rot causes the beams that support a house to lose integrity and crumble

A disaster for any home it takes hold in, wood rot is caused by certain fungi that digest the parts of the wood that provide strength and stiffness.

Infestation

A termite colony can consume 3 feet of 2x4 boards a year

Termites and other wood-eating pests can be extremely destructive when they invade a crawl space - chewing through a home's structural supports unseen and unnoticed for years.

Poor Air Quality

87% of your life is spent indoors

It's tempting to assume that pollution is an outdoor issue, however studies have revealed that levels of pollutants inside your home can be 5x higher than typical outdoor concentrations.
Whatever the Problem is...

You've Got the Right Solutions

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation, or sealing, is the treatment that building scientists recommend to turn a damp, dirty, moldy crawl space into a clean, dry space where mold can’t grow.

Properly sealing the crawl space and removing the moisture from the ground and air is part of the solution that helps provide a mold-free, radon-free, and insect-free environment, which leads to a more energy-efficient and healthier home.

Proper Drainage Installation

Installing a proper sump pump, or upgrading your existing pump, is the quickest and most cost-effective way to protect your crawl space from flooding.

A sump pump is a mechanical pump that is installed in a pit (sump) in your crawl space to prevent flooding and keeps the area and your home dry. It doesn’t dry out your crawl space; rather, it directs excess water to a nearby storm drain.
