Basement flooding is a serious issue that can threaten the structural integrity of your entire home. In addition, your crawl space and basement areas are cool, dark, and damp, making them an ideal target for mold growth. As water freezes and unfreezes with the changing weather, soil expansion can create tiny cracks in a home’s foundation. If left unchecked, more expensive foundation problems can spread.

If you notice standing water in your home, call Michigan Basements ASAP for treatment. For over a decade, Michigan Basements has provided airtight crawl space encapsulation and professional basement waterproofing in West Bloomfield, MI. We know how to keep your foundation dry, ensuring your home is safe and stable for years to come.

Avoid Expensive Foundation Repair, Mold Growth, & Other Hidden Hazards for Crawl Spaces

If you notice a dripping pipe or other small basement leak, you might brush it off at first, but beware: water damage can lead to complex and expensive repairs over time. Crawl space air holds moisture, enabling the growth of harmful mold and bacteria.

How can you keep your crawl space dry and eliminate excess humidity? Your basement might have a sump pump drainage system to detect flooding and drain excess water, but that isn’t always enough to clear ground moisture from the space and reduce relative humidity.

To fully protect yourself against water damage, call Michigan Basements. Our innovative triple protection waterproofing systems and wall liners keep water from infiltrating basements and crawl spaces in West Bloomfield, Michigan, and throughout the Metro Detroit area. Encapsulate the floor and walls of the crawl space area to create a perfectly sealed system so water vapor, moisture, and harmful gases cannot permeate through your home.

Benefits of Vapor Barriers

Our encapsulation method protects a crawl space or basement from extra moisture by installing a vapor barrier on the basement floor and up the foundation wall of the basement and/or crawl space.

Benefits of crawlspace encapsulation include:

  • Better indoor air quality
  • Relief for respiratory problems
  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Moisture control and mildew control
  • No more musty odors
  • Reduced soil gases (such as radon gas and methane)
  • Protection against water leaks, dry rot, and wood rot
  • Reduced allergens (mold, dust mites, etc.)

How Does Crawl Space Encapsulation & Crawl Space Moisture Control Work?

When you think of your basement, you may think of a mess of pipes, dust, and forgotten storage space. Some crawl spaces might even be just plain dirt! These areas of a home are often poorly-insulated, which makes cooling and heating difficult. This raises your energy bills and holds moisture, leading to mold growth and airborne spores creeping into your home.

To prevent these issues, the crawl space encapsulation process wraps the entire crawl space with a moisture barrier. This includes the home’s foundation walls, foundation piers, floor joists, basement windows, sill plate, the ground itself, and whatever else is necessary. A crawl space moisture barrier (sometimes called a crawl space vapor barrier or waterproofing membrane) is a special piece of sheeting made of waterproofing materials used to seal off areas and prevent moisture accumulation. It also provides additional insulation which can improve your home’s energy efficiency and lower your electricity bills. It will help keep out pests like bugs and rodents as well.

However, if a crawl space vapor barrier is not properly installed, excess moisture will continue to collect and the horizontal surfaces will keep absorbing water. In fact, an improperly installed vapor barrier could make things worse by insulating and accelerating mold growth. Luckily, when you partner with Michigan Basements, there’s no need to worry. We have years of experience fixing wet basements, by performing waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation, and foundation repair throughout southeast Michigan.
