Crawlspace Waterproofing Services for Homeowners in Smyrna, GA
Often, when moisture accumulates in a home’s crawlspace, it can lead to mold and mildew growth and cause structural damage to wooden floor joists. Not only can this be problematic for your home structurally, but mold growth in your crawlspace can be a serious health hazard. To prevent any moisture-related issues from developing in the crawlspace of your Smyrna, Georgia, home, you can take full advantage of crawlspace waterproofing services from Engineered Solutions of Georgia.
How Do You Waterproof a Crawlspace?
Crawlspace waterproofing involves lining the ground beneath your home and your foundation walls with a vapor barrier. Commonly called a moisture barrier, a vapor barrier is a thick, tarp-like sheet of polyethylene. After we fit it to your crawlspace and seal all the seams with a special waterproofing tape, we will run a dehumidifier to restore the space to an appropriate level of humidity.
What Are the Benefits of Crawlspace Waterproofing?
Crawlspace waterproofing from ESOG offers a homeowner many benefits, including:
- Improved energy efficiency because the vapor barrier also helps regulate the movement of heat into and out of your home
- Better air quality, not only in your crawlspace but throughout your home
- Less chance of wood-destroying insects and other pests infiltrating your crawlspace
