St. Louis Basement Pros

Wet Crawl Space

When this area of the home isn't sealed off, or "encapsulated," moisture from the soil when it rains or when there is melting snow will be able to get inside and cause problems. Moisture here is not something you want as it can be very damaging to wooden materials, including support beams, floor joists, and posts. Also, when this wood starts to deteriorate, it will be attractive to unwanted critters, such as termites and roaches.

Warning Signs of Too Much Moisture

If you notice any of the following, then there is a problem that will need to be looked at immediately:

  • Floors feel un-level or as if they are sagging in spots
  • Living quarters of the home smell musty (mold growth)
  • Water can be seen pooling up next to the footing outside of the home
  • With a visual inspection of the space, you can see noticeable rot on wooden materials or flooding

To take care of the problem, St. Louis Basement Pros can seal the space off from the outside environment. This will involve the use of SafeBasements™ Healthy Living Encapsulation products, which includes: vapor barriers, floor liners, sump pumps, and dehumidifiers. This will help to prevent seepage from getting inside and causing problems. Also, it will put a stop to dangerous mold and bacteria growth.
