Crawlspaces that have become consistently wet or flooded are a result of poor water mitigation and/or encapsulation. Without a drain to direct water away from this area, or a barrier to keep soggy soil or damp air contained, crawlspaces become rotted and cause other problems.
With sagging floors it’s an indication that the support beams within the crawlspace have deteriorated. In most cases this will be either wooden or concrete joists that have become rotted or broken from mold, mildew, water, and humidity. This is an after-effect of poorly sealed crawlspace without protection.
Humidity and Odor
Any type of odor coming from your crawlspace means there’s bacteria and mold growth underneath your home. It’s caused by damp environments and humidity with poor ventilation. No barrier protection also leaves this area vulnerable to water penetration, which can result in mold growth.

This system is the usage of our patented vapor barriers along with sealing applications designed to completely seal off the crawlspace from external soil, moisture, water, and pests. This also contains humidity to an extent but is much more effective with a dehumidifier.
