If your home or business has a crawlspace, there’s a chance you will experience water damage at some point. There are many ways that water can get into a crawl space. One of the most common ways is through leaks in your plumbing system. If left untreated, moisture in your crawl space can lead to mold, which will create serious health problems for those living there.
How can I keep my crawlspace moisture free?
A damp crawlspace can lead to a variety of problems, which is why you should try to keep it moisture-free. Below are 3 tips from the experts at Mold Doctors USA:
- Purchase a dehumidifier
It’s always good to have a dehumidifier on hand to dry out your crawlspace. Make sure you purchase one that is specifically made for crawlspaces. This will remove the excess moisture from your crawlspace.
- Cover the floor of your crawlspace
You can prevent dampening of the crawlspace by covering the floor. Crawlspace vapor barriers do a great job of preventing moisture from entering the crawlspace. Layering the moisture barriers on the floor of the crawlspace will help keep moisture out.
- Insulate your foundation
Consider installing waterproof insulation in your crawlspace to keep it moisture-free. Mold Doctors USA offers free consultation for waterproofing so you don’t have to do the heavy lifting yourself.
