Moisture in a crawl space puts your home at risk for mold. Water from the soil evaporates into your wooden floor joists which turns into a breeding ground for toxic black mold. These spores, if ingested or inhaled, can cause a range of unpleasant and even dangerous symptoms in humans.
The most common black mold symptoms and health effects are associated with a respiratory response. Chronic coughing and sneezing, irritation to the eyes, mucus membranes of the nose and throat, rashes, chronic fatigue and persistent headaches can all be symptomatic of black mold exposure or black mold poisoning.
Green Horizon One Hour eliminates mold and will protect your home from moisture problems with proper insulation. Contact us to schedule a FREE inspection.
A Vapor Barrier keeps your home drier. The EPA recommends it for older homes to control dampness.
This thin sheeting in the crawl space helps create a divide between water and your home. Spread uniformly across the soil and partway up onto the crawl space walls, it keeps water in the soil instead of in the crawl space.
If your home has ductwork running underneath in your crawl space, it’s at risk of corroding. Even galvanized, stainless and coated metal components aren’t permanently safe from the damaging effects of moisture. In time, all of those protective measures can fail.
A Vapor Barrier will protect your ductwork and prevent heating and air conditioning breakdowns. Learn more by contacting Green Horizon One Hour.
Crawl Space Drainage
Standing water or an eroding ground floor are signs your crawl space may be vulnerable to flooding. This can lead to more problems such as mold and water damage to your home.
An Interior French Drain catches the water that seeps inside and channels it to a Sump Pump that sends the water back outside. Having an interior drainage solution will eliminate chronic water problems in your crawl space.
Green Horizon specializes in the design and installation of sump pumps and interior french drains for your crawl space. Schedule a FREE INSPECTION to learn how we can help you.
Vented vs. Closed Crawl Space
A Vented Crawl Space is an opening for what’s outside to come inside your home. This includes insects, termites, and wild animals, as well as moisture which can lead to rotting wood, musty odors, and even mold.
Closing a Crawl Space seals the vents, insulates the walls, creates a vapor barrier, and conditions the air in the Crawl Space. This reduces the humidity and provides energy savings all year long.
Benefits of a Closed Crawl Space:
- Improves the air quality in your home
- Lowers your energy costs
- Decreases the likelihood of mold and wood decay
- Warms cold winter floors
- Reduces pest and termite infiltration
Save money and improve the air quality of your home by sealing and closing your crawl space. Learn more by contacting Green Horizon One Hour.
