WET INSULATION IN CRAWL SPACE

Because of the high moisture content in the air in the Southeast, wet insulation is a common occurrence.  Often, insulation will separate and fall, leaving the home damp and uninsulated. With the moisture trapped in the insulation, mold will begin to grow, causing another hazard to both the crawl space and inside the home as 50% of the air we breathe in our homes comes from the crawl space.

Southern Climate Solutions has been tackling moisture issues in crawl spaces for over two decades with 100% satisfied customers.  With our encapsulation and dehumidification solutions, we can protect your structure and prevent rot and decay.

Moisture is a crawl spaces greatest threat as it promotes, mold and unhealthy conditions. Without being addressed, moisture damage can cause structural issues that can cost tens of thousands of dollars to reapir.  For homeowners in humid climates like Pensacola, Mobile, Destin and surrounding communities, preventing moisture damage with encapsulation and dehumidification in the crawl is the best prevention.

SIGNALS TO PROMPT ACTION

The best wat to avoid costly repairs and preserve the structural integrity of your home is to prevent moisture damage. The extreme climate in the Greater Pensacola Area and surrounding Southeastern communities promotes high humidity in the crawl space, leading to many hazards.

There are signs that you may be experiencing moisture issues in the crawl space, including areas of spongy floors in your home. Creaking floors can also be a sign of potential issues.

PREVENTING MOISTURE ISSUES AND MOLDY, WET INSULATION

By creating a controlled environment in the crawl space, we can control moisture, keeping the humidity at safe levels, between 40%-50%, preventing hazards like mold, pests and moisture damaged wood.

With encapsulation, we seal the crawl space, creating a basement-like area. A commercial grade dehumidifier is added to continually remove any excess moisture to safeguard the crawl space as well as the inside of your home.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT CRAWL SPACE ISSUES

Can the mold in my crawl space get into my home?
Nearly 50% of the air we breathe inside our homes comes from the crawl space. When the AC is running, negative pressure is created inside the home, creating a wicking effect that pulls the unhealthy air from the crawl space into the home. This air is moist, and creates a potential mold hazard inside your home.
Will mold remediation take care of my mold issues?
While remediation is sometimes necessary, it is not preventing the mold from returning. The underlying cause of mold growth is moisture. To prevent mold, you must eliminate the excess moisture. Encapsulation and dehumidification is an effective, preventative solution.
Will a vapor barrier without dehumidification help?
Without dehumidification, encapsulation can make your moisture issues in the crawl space worse. The moisture in the crawl space remains trapped and contributes to wood rot and structural issues.
