Getting the Humidity Levels Just Right
In North Carolina, most customers have crawl spaces that are too humid, or have pooling water. Why is this a problem? An enclosed space with excessive moisture and lack of ventilation is a perfect place for mold and mildew to grow and flourish. If improper humidity levels are left unchecked for too long, you may experience:
- Dangerous mold growth. Harmful mold spores and a musty odor will enter your home and affect your overall air quality. Those with asthma or other respiratory illnesses may be most sensitive to changes in air quality.
- Rotting Wood. Support beams begin to rot and weaken which affects the structural integrity of your building. If you have hardwood floors, they may begin to buckle from the excessive moisture.
Luckily, One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning provides many services to drain and ventilate wet crawl spaces. If you’ve noticed water droplets forming on the walls and ceiling of your crawl space, or have seen leaking, or unusual odors, it’s time to get your space repaired. We also offer dehumidifier services to keep your home or business safe and comfortable.

What’s the Difference Between Encapsulation and Sealing?
A sealed crawl space uses a dehumidifier to manage the level of humidity and temperature after moist ground, air and any other sources of leaking have been sealed. We recommend sealing when the air’s moisture is out of control. Encapsulation is a more involved, and slightly costlier process that involves wrapping the foundation, piers, walls and closing the moisture barrier to each. This is typically done for crawl spaces that are below grade.
For many crawl spaces, sealing should do the trick. However, some crawl spaces need a bit more TLC which is when encapsulation is required.
