Crawl Space Problems
Mold growth may cause problems ranging from odors to worsening of asthma or allergy symptoms in people who are sensitive to mold (EPA, 2012). Crawl space moisture accumulation may lead to insect infestations or promote fungal-induced rot in wooden structural elements. Conventional or traditional crawl space designs have been investigated by Advanced Energy in North Carolina.

Indoor Air Quality
Many customers call Dry-Tek Environmental because of musty odors or visible mold or mildew in their homes and businesses. Many times, these problems are secondary to excessive moisture accumulation in the crawl space. High humidity and ground-water levels on the Eastern Shore lead to these moisture conditions necessary for fungal and mold growth. These unwelcome organisms can reduce the indoor air quality in the living area above the crawl space (EPA.gov, 2010).
Crawl Space Waterproofing
Waterproofing is a broad term referring to a range of services that help keep water from creating problems on your lower level, be it a basement, crawl space or a basement/crawl space combination. Waterproofing jobs will vary in scope, based on the size of the structure and the degree of the problem.
Crawl Space Encapsulation
Encapsulation is only needed with a dirt floor crawlspace. The crawl space encapsulation process includes covering the dirt floor and foundation walls with a heavy crawl space vapor barrier. The installation of crawlspace encapsulation can usually be completed in one day for many homes.
