At Lowcountry Basement Systems we focus on solving moisture, mold issues, and even flooding in crawl spaces. Moisture, mold, and flooding issues in crawl spaces are caused by ground moisture, thermal break, and infiltration of air. Although the solution to crawl space issues varies from case to case, whether it be adding a dehumidifier, seal your crawl space, or installing a sump pump in your crawl space. Lowcountry has the solution to reduce crawl space humidity in your home.
As a homeowner, this customer in Richmond Hill, GA is shopping for solutions to fix his home's crawl space. Having heard of crawl space encapsulation, he wants to know more about the benefits of this technology. Luckily, he sought the help of the most respected local expert in crawl space environment: Rob Videon. Rob and his team pioneered the crawl space encapsulation industry in the region and are the only company to install the revolutionary CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System in Savannah and nearby towns in Georgia and South Carolina.
The CleanSpace vapor barrier lines the entire space and completely isolates the crawl space from the two main sources of moisture: ground water evaporation and outside air humidity. The vapor barrier in combination with a powerful crawl space dehumidifier effectively deals with condensation, along with monitoring and keeping relative humidity levels under control so mold and dry rot won't stand a chance.
Since the air in every home moves upwards through a phenomenon known as the "stack effect", crawl space encapsulation not only protects your crawl space against wood decay and structural damages; it also improves indoor air quality by preventing mold spores, dust mite pellets and other allergens and pollutants common in a wet crawl space from being carried indoors with the air. A sealed crawl space also helps slow down the stack effect so that the conditioned air won't leak out as much, and unconditioned air from outside won't leak in. The air that you pay to cool and heat will stay where it belongs: in the living space and your HVAC won't need to work so hard. An encapsulated crawl space can make your home up to 18% more energy efficient.
