Your Crawl Space Vents Need to Be Sealed

If your crawl space has open vents, chances are you may have a moisture problem on your hands. 

In years past, building contractors believed that vents circulated air throughout the crawl space, but recent studies have found that they cause moisture and pest problems. 

Outside moisture infiltrating your crawl space breeds mold and mildew, resulting in poor indoor air quality, and it lets in pests. 

So, if your crawl space vents aren’t sealed, it may be time to call AquaGuard.

Our retaining wall that holds the driveway and brick wall on one side of house cracked. There're also major cracks on concrete floor on our front porch. We contacted AquaGuard Foundation Solutions to see if they could help with those issues. They came to give estimate in a timely manner. Zach came to inspect our house and suggested to have 7 steel piers installed under one side of the house that showed cracks and poly-foam fill under the concrete floor on the front porch. About a week later, Tim and Davon came to do the pier installation. Upon the installation, I asked them if the crack on the retaining wall was normal and how steer piers would help with the situation. They answered my questions professionally and suggested that in this situation they would rather do helical piers in the retaining wall area instead of putting steel piers which would sit under the cinder block base and could damage the integrity of the retaining wall and driveway. We agreed with the idea of putting helical piers in the retaining wall area. Tim made all the necessary phone calls and had our contract/estimate adjusted. Tim and Davon were super friendly and easy to talk to. They finished the job in a timely manner. However AquaGuard couldn't do anything with the cracked concrete on the front porch as a gap between the soil base and concrete floor was too large. The foundation repair also comes with a 1-year inspection. Thanks AquaGuard.

Our basement was a complete mess, standing water, foundational supports collapsing, mold, spiders, smell of Georgia red clay, etc. If left unchecked, the foundational supports would give, and the house would eventually collapse as well as mold started making its way up into the house, and the air unhealthy to breath. AquaGuard built a 4-foot barrier wall that was backfilled to shore up existing support beams as well as installed 3 IntelliJack Supports. New drainage systems were introduced that feeds into two separate sump pumps with associated power backup and a dehumidifier added that will manages humidity. Further, a vapor barrier was added across the entire basement and vents sealed, thus an enclosed basement simulation. Once work was completed by AquaGuard, the basement is like new and habitable. I trusted in AquaGuard professionalism to deliver, and they truly satisfied my expectations. I welcome anyone to come see for themself.

My pool deck was settling in some places and popping up near trees. There were cracks in every corner and separation gaps in others. I called for an appointment and the team of Raymond and Paul arrived. They were very honest about what I could expect given the situation. But they are perfectionists! What a difference in removing trip hazards and filling the gaps. The pool deck is level again and ready to be painted in only a few hours. Great job guys! Give them a call. They’re good folks to do business with and you will be happy with the results.

We had a big job to be done. Tim M, Davon, and Tim A did a great job on the anchors and piers. Audiel, Adrian, and Philip did a great job waterproofing, and Chris Risley and Colin Jansen did an excellent job on our polyfill. All three teams were professional, detail-oriented/thoughtful, and made sure we were satisfied with the work before they left for the day.

Thought AquaGuard’s field inspector WILLIAM HUTCHINS was great, went way beyond typical effort to make sure I understood what was happening under my house, with the foundation. Got under the house and located all issues, everything that was wrong, and provided photos that helped me make sense of what was required to fix everything. Was polite and flexible to my budget and made several options available to get me on the way to a safer, more stabilized, healthy house. Recommend him. Cool guy.

Is Crawl Space Encapsulation the Right Solution for Me? 

Since your crawl space isn’t a place you regularly visit, damage and mold-growth can go unnoticed. But if you inspect your crawl space and you do find damage, then crawl space encapsulation is the only solution. 

AquaGuard’s comprehensive encapsulation repairs, cleans, dries, and protects your crawl space (and your entire home!). It also makes your crawl space usable for storage. Crawl space encapsulation improves your overall air quality and makes your home more energy-efficient. 

AquaGuard has over two decades of experience in engineering superior crawl space solutions for your home. Our 20-mil thick vapor barrier, combined with our state-of-the-art sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and interior drainage systems will ensure your home is protected against any moisture that tries to find its way in.

FAQs

Installing a dehumidifier is a crucial part in controlling crawl space moisture. A dehumidifier alone won’t fix all crawl space water and moisture issues, but in conjunction with a crawl space moisture barrier, a dehumidifier can ensure your crawl space is protected from mold damage. 

A moisture barrier, sometimes referred to as a vapor barrier, is just part of a complete crawl space encapsulation system. It is a durable liner used to prevent moisture from entering through exposed dirt floors and walls. Our crawl space moisture barrier is a crisp white, 20-mil, 7-layer poly-reinforced liner and is mold resistant, giving you the opportunity to transform your crawl space into usable storage space. 

Crawl space encapsulation refers to the process of waterproofing, insulating, sealing, and conditioning the crawl space to eliminate moisture and high humidity issues. The combination of installing an effective drainage system, insulating the crawl space, sealing floors and walls, and adequately dehumidifying the air not only prevents groundwater or wall moisture from entering the crawl space, but it also regulates crawl space humidity and temperature, often making it the most regulated and climate-controlled area in your home!

Though most crawl spaces are seldom used, a wet crawl space could mean problems for the floors above. It’s important to manage crawl space moisture levels to prevent rotting wood, mold growth, high humidity, pests, and other symptoms of a wet crawl space. Luckily, this is easy thanks to a number of crawl space repair and waterproofing solutions provided by AquaGuard Foundation Solutions.

Why You Need to Repair Your Home’s Crawl Space

If your home has open crawl space vents or deteriorating waterproofing measures, then you probably have some problems developing in there. To protect your entire home, you need to make sure your crawl space stays dry and clean. In no uncertain terms, crawl space encapsulation protects you from the following problems:

crawl space water and flooding

Water Damage  

Water damage can lead to mold growth, dry rot on your floor joists, and elevated humidity in your home. The first thing we do as waterproofing professionals is repair any prior moisture damage in your crawl space.

mold in crawl space

Mold and Mildew Growth 

If mold and mildew are in your crawl space, we remediate it. Why? Because mold, especially black mold, can harm your respiratory health. If family members have conditions like asthma, then it can be particularly awful. 

Remediating mold and outfitting your crawl space with a vapor barrier and dehumidifier will control the humidity in your home and make it a healthier space. 

You can literally breathe easy. 

Musty damaged crawl space

Deterioration 

Encapsulation products have a point when they become ineffective. This is natural, but it can harm your home if left unaddressed. It’s important to inspect your crawl space regularly for wear and tear.
