Crawlspace Waterproofing Services for Homeowners in Johns Creek, GA
Detecting musty odors in your house always seems to be followed by: “Where is that smell coming from?” You might be surprised to learn that it could be emanating from your crawlspace. Although it’s just a space beneath your house that you can’t really use, neglecting that area can lead to a host of problems. For instance, when moisture accumulates in a crawlspace, it can create the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew, which often leads to unpleasant odors that can permeate the entire home. If that isn’t bad enough, excessive moisture can also cause wooden floor joists to rot and metal plumbing to rust. Fortunately, with crawlspace waterproofing service from Engineered Solutions of Georgia, Johns Creek, GA, homeowners have a cost-effective way to prevent any such problems.
What Does Crawlspace Waterproofing Service Entail?
To waterproof a crawlspace, the ESOG team installs a vapor barrier on the ground beneath your home and along your foundation’s interior walls. A vapor barrier, also called a moisture barrier, is a thick, tarp-like sheet of polyethylene. We fit it into your crawl space and then seal all seams with special waterproofing tape. Once the vapor barrier is in place, we can run a dehumidifier to restore your crawlspace to an appropriate level of humidity.
What Are the Benefits of Crawlspace Waterproofing?
Crawlspace waterproofing from ESOG yields a slew of benefits for homeowners, including:
- Better air quality, not only in your crawlspace but throughout your home
- Improved energy efficiency because the vapor barrier also helps regulate the movement of heat into and out of your home
- Less chance of wood-destroying insects and other pests infiltrating your crawlspace
