5 Steps to Getting a Healthy Crawl Space by Pioneer Basement

1. Inspection for standing water, mold, or pest issues and removal of old insulation.
2. Sealing vents, gaps, and holes and insulating walls with spray foam.
3. Installing a sump pump and drainage to prevent standing water and moisture intrusion.
4. Installing a crawl space vapor barrier.
5. Using a crawl space dehumidifier to further control moisture and improve indoor air quality.

The most effective way to control moisture and air quality in your crawl space area with crawl space encapsulation. First, space is sealed, which includes sealing vents, gaps, and holes around plumbing and ductwork that let in uncontrolled outside air. Encapsulation then includes covering the floor (in most cases) and walls of the crawl space with a vapor barrier for complete control of the entire area.

Once your crawl space is encapsulated, a crawl space dehumidifier is a key to keeping the humidity in the space at a consistent, healthy level year-round. Your encapsulated crawl space stops unwanted moisture and odors from entering your living space and keeps the heated or cooled air from escaping for increased energy efficiency and lower utility bills.
