Moisture in Attics
Attics are notorious for poor ventilation. Combine this with the clutter that takes up so much space in most attics, and you have the ideal conditions for mold growth. To combat this, we can create attic vents - following the general rule that for every 300 square feet of ceiling space, you should have one square foot of ventilation - and even install a fan to dispel the attic moisture.
Moisture Control for Basements
Basements are all too prone to high humidity levels. They can invite flood damage through poorly sealed windows, leaky pipes, groundwater swelling, and water seepage from above. When it comes to moisture control, we can recommend several treatments. We can waterproof the walls with a concrete sealant and set up a dehumidifier.
Moisture Control for Crawl Spaces
Our main focus is on treating crawl spaces. A big reason why is that there's a widespread problem in most homes here that we wish to see addressed: namely, the presence of crawl space ventilation. In humid climates, such ventilation actually does the opposite of what it's intended to do; it increases humidity levels.
Vapor drive from the soil, condensation from pipes, and other factors already contribute to high humidity in crawl spaces, so it's best not to aggravate the problem. Moisture control can be done effectively with what's called crawl space encapsulation. We'll cover the walls, floor, and ventilation holes with a vapor barrier, a thick plastic membrane that will prevent moisture from spreading and condensing, and we'll install a drain to let out any water that develops behind the barrier.
You also have the option of enhancing the results through insulation. For extremely moist crawl spaces, we can set up a dehumidifier. So long as there are no mold or pest problems in your crawl space, we can begin moisture control right away.
