Dallas Fort Worth Crawl Space Moisture Problems
Dallas Fort Worth Crawl Space MoistureCrawl space encapsulation is an effective vapor barrier solution as both dirt and porous concrete crawl spaces are continuous sources of crawl space moisture in Dallas Fort Worth homes. Even if a dirt crawl space seems dry, it is in reality moist just under the surface. Warm air moving upward in your Dallas Fort Worth home brings up air from the crawl space, along with moisture, mold spores, bacteria and other airborne particles present in the crawl space. In a continuous cycle, air comes directly from the dirt or concrete crawl space floor to replace the warm air that moves up and moist outside air comes into your crawl space through vents, cracks and leaks. In essence, the air you breath in your home is made up of the moisture rich air in your crawl space.
Crawl Space Moisture Problems in Dallas Fort WorthDallas Fort Worth crawl space moisture causes mold and fungus to grow, which in turn cause foul odors and wood rot, as well as structural damage such as sagging beams and floor joists. Pests, such as insects and rodents, love moist environments and are naturally drawn to moldy and musty crawl spaces. The constant airflow and moisture from outside your Dallas home also keeps energy bills higher than they would be with a crawl space encapsulation system in place. These issues affect the entire house, not just the crawl space. However, all these issues are also controllable with effectively sealing the crawl space while eliminating moisture from the air and the dirt or concrete floor. This crawl space encapsulation system produces a mildew free, radon gas free and pest free crawl space, which directly affect the rest of the house with lower energy bills and better indoor air quality.
