Raleigh, NC Crawl Space Moisture Control
Your crawl space (that little foot or two below the first floor of your home) isn’t an area that many people think about throughout their day-to-day lives. However, you may want to think about it a little more often because it can impact your home comfort more than you may realize. While your crawl space can be a great place to house the “guts” of your home, like your water heater, it can also house things like humidity, mildew, dust, and more.
When the humidity rolls into Raleigh, NC, you don’t want your crawl space to be the area that allows that moisture into your home. It is important that your crawl space be properly insulated and have an effective vapor barrier to keep all that moisture out of your home. That is what our team of service technicians is for: guaranteeing your home comfort from every possible angle.

Do You Need Crawl Space Moisture Control?
You may be wondering whether you should look into moisture control services for your home’s crawl space. We believe everyone with a crawl space below their home should make sure that it is properly protected. However, in terms of specific warning signs you should watch for, keep on the lookout for:
- Floors in your home that are buckling or uneven or wood rot
- Musty smells
- An increase in allergies or reactions to wood rot
- You see surface staining fungi
- An HVAC system that is struggling to do its job
Because your crawl space can allow moisture into your home, it can impact your indoor air quality which can then affect your home comfort and your health too. It is always better to call in a professional to make sure that your crawl space is properly taken care of with measures like vapor barriers, crawl space insulation, or even dehumidifiers.
Why Do I Need a Vapor Barrier?
Vapor barriers are plastic or foil materials that help provide a damp-proof layer in your crawl space to prevent moisture from getting into other parts of your home, like your walls, ceilings, or floors. Without proper vapor barriers, you run the risk of your insulation becoming damp and ineffective, your floors starting to buckle, surface-staining fungi being able to grow in your home, and other problems.
Far too often we encounter homes with vapor barriers that are no more than an unsecured plastic sheet. This does nothing more than give moisture another way into your home. Trust the pros on our team to take care of your crawl space and get a vapor barrier installed the way it is meant to be. Keep the moisture outside where it belongs. Contact us to learn more.
