Are you worried about humidity levels at your home in Charlotte? Our crawlspace vapor barrier installation can help.
If you have a crawlspace underneath your home in Charlotte, North Carolina, you need to know about the importance of a crawlspace vapor barrier to protect your investment and the health and well-being of the occupants of your home. Having a moisture problem underneath a home is a big deal. Not only can it allow mold overgrowth to start, but it also makes pest invasion more likely and can even damage the structure of the home over time.
You think of the crawlspace being an area separate from the living space of your home, but the reality is that as much as 40% of the air inside your home came from the crawlspace. If there is mold growing in your crawlspace, there will be mold spores in your home, and mold growth in your home will be more likely. It is now common knowledge that mold and mildew can irritate our respiratory systems. It can make the symptoms of asthma and allergies much worse.
If you suspect that you have a moisture issue in your crawlspace, or if you have a new home and you want to protect it, a crawlspace vapor barrier is the first step in protection. However, a vapor barrier may not be enough. You may need to consider sump pump installation or installing a dehumidifier, too. Gutters on the exterior of your house can also make a difference as they divert water away from your home.
