MOISTURE DAMAGED WOOD
Because of the highly humid environment in Florida and Alabama, moisture damaged wood is a threat to all homeowners. One of the most destructive issues for any home, wood decay can lead to structural issues, costing thousands of dollars to repair.

SIGNALS TO PROMPT ACTION
The best wat to avoid costly repairs and preserve the structural integrity of your home is to prevent wood rot or stop it before it becomes a structural threat. The extreme climate in the Greater Pensacola Area and surrounding Southeastern communities promote high humidity in the crawl space, leading to many hazards.
There are signs that you may be experiencing wood rot in the crawl space, including areas of spongy floors in your home. Creaking floors can also be a sign of potential issues.
PREVENTING WOOD ROT AND DECAY IN THE CRAWL SPACE
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 wood rot.
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.
