Professional Crawl Space Repair
In the Crofton area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these open vents allows water to get in during storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. If you have a crawl space, up to half of the air entering your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will benefit the overall air quality in your home.
American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold Control has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control mold. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty line, sometimes accompanied by other waterproofing systems to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation will stop bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space as well allowing you to use it for storage. Water in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
