Crawl Space Ventilation & Improvements in North Texas

Dalworth Restoration no longer provides crawl space ventilation services. However, here is what we would recommend based on our knowledge and experience:

Crawl Space Ventilation Problems

In the past, prior crawl space building codes called for vents on either side of homes located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It was thought that the vents on one side of the home would draw musty and humid crawl space air and odors out through the other vent and old stale air would be replaced with fresh outdoor air in a continuous ventilation process. However, this theory proved to be wrong and proved crawl space ventilation with vents to be an out-dated method of ventilating a crawl space area.

Since air actually moves in an upward direction into the home - much like how air flows through a chimney - air coming through crawl space vents includes pollutants and airborne pathogens like mold spores, moisture, and humidity, which are all drawn through the vents into the crawl space and upwards into the home causing a host of problems. 

Crawl space vents and air ventilation through these vents causes problems including:

  • Mold 
  • Mildew
  • Wood rot
  • Poor air quality
  • Foul odors
  • Pests  
  • Higher energy bills due to poor insulation

Crawl Space Encapsulation Solution

A crawl space encapsulation system with vapor barrier and vent covers and doors offers a complete crawl space solution that:

  • Replaces old outdated vents with vent covers 
  • Reduces crawl space moisture 
  • Reduces humidity problems
  • Increases crawl space insulation
  • Reduces allergens and pests 
  • Improves air quality
  • Reduces energy bills
  • Meets current building codes

Crawl Space System Installation 

Expert technicians will inspect your crawl space and determine the best solution to seal your crawl space, reduce moisture, and insulate walls and floors. First, they seal the crawl space floors and walls with a crawl space vapor barrier, and then they seal crawl space doors, holes, cracks, openings, and gaps. Next seal vents with vent covers and install new crawl space doors where needed to keep outside air out of your crawl space. If there is a combustible appliance, such as a furnace in your crawl space, request a customized encapsulation solution that allows for appliance air flow.
