Crawl Space Waterproofing Methods
Basement Master’s first step in waterproofing the crawlspace of your Virginia home is set up a vapor barriers. Vapor barriers prevent moisture form coming through the ground in your crawlspace and disturbing the quality of air in your home. Vapor barriers are made of puncture resistant, high tensile, material that will stop any possibility of moisture from the soil. If your basement is experiencing moisture issues, we can install vapor barriers on walls as well. After the application of the vapor barrier, the final thing that our Basement Masters team will do is dehumidify the space. Once the space is properly dehumidified, you will be free of all moisture.
Crawl space moisture is so problematic due to the fact that it is the perfect environment for mold to grow. As mold spreads it releases spores into the air these spores can be dangerous if breathed in. A majority of the air in your home cycles through the basement at one point or another. Meaning, mold spores can easily spread to all corners of your home.
