There are four main steps to solving the problems that can be caused by your dirt crawlspace. You gain a ton of benefit by fixing your crawlspace AND without having a terribly expensive or disruptive home improvement project to deal with. These four major steps rid your home from any negative effects caused by a dirty and musty crawlspace.
Step 1: Fix the Water Leakage
AquaGuard is able to do this in a variety of different ways. A SmartSump pump is installed in order to automatically drain any captured water out of the crawlspace. EZ Flow and lawnscape drainage systems also help removed unwanted water out of a crawlspace.
Step 2: Isolate the House form the Earth
This simply means encapsulate. AquaGuard installs CleanSpace drain matting throughout the entire crawlspace (even walls and columns) to ensure a dry crawlspace.
Step 3: Seal the Vents and other Outside Air Leaks
Sealing all vents and doors is the best thing for your crawlspace. Outside air does more harm to a crawlspace (and you home’s air) than good. AquaGuard is able to effectively seal any gaps, vents, and doors.
Step 4: ‘Condition’ or Dehumidify your Crawlspace’s Air
AquaGuard is able to install a Sanidry dehumidifier to any home that needs it. Dehumidifying your space is the best thing to do to ensure that all of the moisture is eliminated from your crawlspace.
