Homeowners may not realize the severity of a plumbing leak or mold buildup in their crawlspace until it’s too late. No matter where a leak is occurring in your home, it’s important to address it right away. Fortunately, our team of experienced crawlspace technicians at Poseidon Plumbing & Home Services can resolve virtually any issues you have with your pipes.

When flooding in a crawlspace goes unchecked, it can lead to several problems, such as:

  • Damaged fiberglass insulation
  • Foul odors that rise into the home
  • Pest or rodent infestations
  • Structural wood damage

Our award-winning company has the tools and expertise to identify the source of the leak and revitalize your crawlspace. One of the most effective ways to prevent long-term damage to your property is to have inspections on a regular basis. Our company offers a variety of maintenance plans to help keep your home’s systems in check.

Sump Pumps

A reliable sump pump system is a critical component of a dry crawlspace. When water flows down into the sump pit, the pump will turn itself on and pump water out of the pit and away from your property. Our fully licensed and certified technicians can construct a sump pit and install a sump pump to ensure that your building does not flood from groundwater or leaks. We can also install a dewatering system in your home to effectively remove water, sludge, or other materials from your crawlspace.

Crawlspace Encapsulation is a Solution for Moisture Problems

Also known as “sealing,” crawlspace encapsulation is becoming an immensely popular solution for getting rid of moisture issues that tend to plague crawlspace areas. If you’re dealing with rotting wood, mold, standing water, and other issues in your crawlspace, encapsulation can get rid of the issues for good so you no longer have to worry about the hassle of natural hazards damaging your home or creating a significant health risk.

What is Crawlspace Encapsulation?

Crawlspace encapsulation is a fairly simple process: think of it sort of like sealing your swimming pool to protect it against leaks. Your crawlspace is completely lined with a thin, flexible, barrier that prevents moisture from passing through. The barrier covers the floors, foundation, walls, and sometimes even the ceiling of your crawlspace to completely cover it and protect it from all moisture sources. The spaces between the sheets are sealed with a special sealing tape.

Finally, in order to keep moisture away for good, a dehumidifier is added to the area which removes the moisture from the air and prevents mold growth and other hazards from forming again. This not only helps discourage mold growth, but even helps keep pests away.

Moisture Barrier Solutions

One of the most effective ways to prevent moisture from damaging your crawl space is to install a moisture barrier. These are designed to prevent moisture from passing through insulation, drywall, and other breathable building materials. When combined with other products, moisture barriers can ensure water is redirected to the exterior of your home.

Encapsulation has proven to be one of the most effective moisture barrier solutions. This barrier consists of heavy-duty polyethylene and is designed to cover the entirety of your crawlspace, from the floors to the walls, and even the ceiling if you feel it’s necessary. Thankfully, our award-winning team can install moisture barriers with ease.

Dehumidification & Insulation

If humidity is causing mold and mildew to grow and spread within your crawlspace, our team of professionals can help. While this is a very effective way to prevent mold growth, it does not stop mold from spreading. Therefore, it’s very important to call a team you can trust to remove all of the existing mold from your crawlspace before installing your new dehumidifier.

Crawlspace insulation can benefit your home in two ways. Not only does it insulate your property to prevent energy loss, it also serves as a vapor barrier to keep moisture out. Poseidon Plumbing & Home Services can help you ensure your home stays safe and warm during the winter months.
