When it rains, it pours in Roanoke Valley. The entire area is prone to flooding, which takes its toll on crawl spaces across Roanoke, Salem and nearby cities. Moisture isn’t good for crawl spaces or basements as it leads to fungal growth, musty odors, wood rot and pest infestations. Without professional moisture control, you could spend a lot of money to repair the damage in the future. If you want to keep your crawl space clean and dry from spring to winter, CrawlSpace Care can help.
Crawl Space Dehumidifier
A dehumidifier works wonders at reducing the overall humidity in your crawl space. However, it will only work if you’ve located and stopped the leaks. Leaky pipes and ductwork are primary causes of moisture in a crawlspace, including vents and random cracks and crevices in the foundation. It’s important to seal any areas where water seeps into your crawl space before installing a dehumidifier. Our trained technicians will inspect your crawl space for leaks and puddles and remedy the problem. Afterward, we’ll set up a dehumidifying system to reduce the humidity and to prevent mold and rot for good.
Crawl Space Encapsulation and Moisture Control
The best way to keep moisture out of your crawl space is to encapsulate it with vapor barriers. These barriers enclose the space and prevent water from penetrating walls and vents. Crawl space waterproofing not only keeps out moisture but also serves as an energy-savings method to stop drafts and air leaks. Our professional technicians will inspect your crawl space and encapsulate the area to provide maximum moisture control.
Crawl Space Insulation
Insulation does a lot for your crawl space. It keeps out moisture that leads to mold on the walls and condensation on both the ductwork and the water pipes. If the moisture levels rise, you could see even more problems such as doors that stick or floors that buckle. Other excessive moisture issues include pest infestations and musty odors. We have crawl space insulation services to take care of every moisture problem. Our certified technicians will insulate your crawl space and cut off the ventilation, providing greater moisture control and increasing your energy savings for the future.

Many structural problems stem from moisture in the crawl space. Termites and wood-boring insects thrive in damp areas, and mold and mildew can spread up into the interior and damage your walls and floors. In addition, wood rot will occur over time and cost you thousands of dollars in repairs. Contact CrawlSpace Care in Roanoke Valley to receive your free quote on our moisture control services.
