Why Vented Crawl Spaces Should Be Sealed

Around 80% of homes in Tennessee have vented crawl spaces. These are an ideal breeding ground for mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria, rot, decay, termites, rodents, and reptiles. The resulting damp and humid environment can quickly become a health issue for your family, compromising indoor air quality and potentially leading to respiratory problems. Don’t let your crawl space become a breeding ground for problems! Seal it today and safeguard your home for the future.

Stopping your crawl space from seeping requires identification of the root cause of the water intrusion problem. Contact BWS today for assistance with this. A certified professional will inspect your property and determine the cause(s) of water entry. From there, we will consider possible crawl space remediation techniques that can meet your goals.

Techniques can range from simply extending downspouts to an appropriate distance from your home, to excavating the foundation and performing exterior waterproofing, to encapsulating the crawl space with a vapor barrier and sealing off foundation vents to further prevent moisture from entering. These are just a few of the many techniques that we possess. Regular inspections and prompt repairs are crucial to maintaining a dry and healthy crawl space, which protects your Nashville or Cookeville,TN, home from potential costly damage and fungal/mold growth.
