Crawl space encapsulation, or sealing, is the treatment that building scientists recommend to turn a damp, dirty, moldy crawl space into a clean, dry space where mold can’t grow
Basement Systems has pioneered the field of crawl space encapsulation. Our professionals install specialized crawl space repair products to transform any “problem” crawl space into a clean, dry foundation that’s an asset rather than a liability.
Before and After
Signs of a crawl space problem
Many homes built on a crawl space foundation suffer from moisture problems, especially those in the southeast United States. And crawl space problems can cause issues upstairs too.
In the upstairs living area:
Buckled hardwood floors
Condensation and rot around floor registers
High heating and cooling costs
Inside the crawl space:
Mold or moisture damage
Condensation or "sweating" on air conditioning ductwork or equipment
Condensation on pipes
Hanging or fallen insulation
Rotted wooden framing
Water on the dirt or concrete floor

Moisture is the most common problem in a vented, unsealed crawl space. Humidity and excess moisture leads to mold growth, wood rot, and pest infestations. Crawl space moisture often migrates upstairs through the "stack effect," contributing to structural damage, musty odors, and high energy bills.
Crawl space encapsulation is the most recommended solution to prevent crawl space moisture. A dehumidifier designed for crawl spaces can ensure a dry crawl space and prevent mold growth. A drainage system and sump pump can stop water intrusion in the crawl space.
A dehumidifier controls humidity and removes moisture from the air to prevent mold and property damage and make the whole house more comfortable. A Basement Systems dealer in your area can evaluate your crawl space and recommend the best solution for moisture control.
The best crawl space sump pump depends on your exact drainage control needs. Basement Systems offers durable, high-capacity sump pump systems. Contact your Basement Systems dealer to schedule an on-site crawl space drainage evaluation.

Do you need crawl space repair?
Do any of the following apply to your home or crawl space? If yes, you should consider having your crawl space evaluated by a professional.
Crawl space with open vents and a dirt floor Vented, dirt-floored crawl spaces are still permitted by building codes in many areas, despite the moisture and mold problems they cause.
Allergy and asthma symptoms Airborne mold spores and dust mites from damp crawl space and basement areas are among the most common indoor air pollutants and allergens.
Fiberglass insulation in the crawl space Fiberglass insulation is the WRONG material to use when insulating a crawl space. It absorbs moisture, loses R-value, attracts mold, promotes wood rot, and falls out of place.
