Preventing Mold Growth in Crawl Spaces
The air in a damp and dim area like a crawl space retains condensation and moisture very easily. This means if there’s a tiny leak or dripping pipe nearby, rapid growth of bacteria and mold may occur.
No one wants to deal with mold or water damage in a basement, but it can be easy to ignore and avoid these problems until it’s too late. Standing water, excess moisture, and foundation leaks can weaken your foundation walls and even threaten the structural integrity of your home. Plus, even if the basement has a sump pump drainage system for detecting flooding and draining excess water, you may need to intervene to get rid of ground moisture and reduce relative humidity.
To prevent these issues, control moisture, and protect your property, call in the pros at Michigan Basements. Our innovative triple-protection waterproofing systems and wall liners prevent water from seeping into basements and crawl spaces. We fill cracks and holes and create a perfectly sealed system to direct rainwater for appropriate drainage and keep vapor, moisture, and harmful gases from spreading through the rest of your home.

How Does Crawl Space Encapsulation Work?
The unfortunate truth is that most crawl spaces are poorly insulated. This leaves them at risk of holding onto excess water vapor, making it difficult to adequately cool or heat your home. In addition to mold growth, this issue can also cause your energy bills to spike.
You can prevent this with damp-proofing methods like crawl space encapsulation.
A crawl space moisture barrier (also known as a crawl space vapor barrier or waterproofing membrane) is a special piece of sheeting made of waterproofing materials. It is used to seal off areas and prevent moisture accumulation. Our encapsulation process starts with surface drainage, followed by wrapping the entire crawl space with this moisture barrier. Next, we extend waterproofing along the concrete walls and other horizontal surfaces as well as on the ground itself.
As an added bonus, crawl space insulation improves your home’s energy efficiency, lowers utility bills, and blocks rodents and other pests from getting in. Read on below for a full list of benefits!
