When is the last time you have ventured into your crawl space? For most homeowners, the crawl space is a cold, dark scary place that is ignored; “Out of sight, out of mind.” Did you know that homes being built today do not have a vented crawl space nor are the crawl spaces left with a dirt or gravel floor? Current building science and building codes have eliminated the vented crawlspace design because the design was flawed and caused many problems such as high crawl space moisture levels, crawl space mold and mildew. A concrete slab and proper drainage is also a part of the current design standard. The reason; a vented crawl space with only dirt or gravel allows cold-dry air into the home which vastly increases energy consumption leading to higher energy bills and uncomfortably low relative humidity within the home. The crawl space experiences the same problem in the summer except the culprit is hot humid air which will increase crawl space moisture and thus the entire home becomes uncomfortable with high moisture levels coming from the crawl space. A musty crawlspace is always a damp crawl space and is unsightly, unsafe and unhealthy. Concrete Crawlspaces Corp. will install a crawl space system designed to your needs and budget.

Addison Foundation Waterproofing
If a home has a crawl space the occupants are breathing the air from the crawlspace! It is called the stack affect. Molds and mildew are microscopic organisms that flourish in damp, dark environments like those found in your crawlspace. They’re all over – an ordinary part of the atmosphere within a crawl space that breaks down and eats anything that contains organic matter. Mold spores can feed on a wide range of materials including dust, dirt, wood products, insulation, drywall and carpet. If the circumstances are right, mold populations can explode – growing and reproducing on moist surfaces until they eventually annihilate the entire food source! Mold spreads by producing millions of floating, airborne spores. When these mold spores inevitably infiltrate the home, they produce a terribly unhealthy condition for families. Typical symptoms caused by crawl space mold include respiratory problems and nasal and sinus congestion, skin, eye, nose and throat irritations. A number of people, particularly infants, children, pregnant women, and the elderly, are at elevated risk for adverse health effects. Persons suffering with chronic lung disease may experience even more serious infections when they are exposed to crawl space mold. As a result, Addison homeowners want to improve their crawlspace environment to improve the quality air for their families.
