Basement Systems, the world leader in dry basement and crawl space technology, expanded its CleanSpace contrators network into Tennessee in response to the overwhelming problems associated with crawl spaces, such as allergy symtoms due to the mold growth on floors joists in crawl space.
The crawl space is the number one place where moisture might invade, because of its contact with the earth. And the earth has very high humidity in the soil which moves easily into the crawl space and upwards into your upper level, making your whole house a place where mold thrives and heating or cooling costs higher. Therefore, the real prevention starts with eliminating the moisture in your crawl space.
It was once thought that adding vents to a crawl space was beneficial - that vents would allow moisture to pass in and out and eventually dissipate. But the fact is that the vents actually promote moisture in one of two ways - the stack effect (natural tendency to draw air in from lower levels upward into living spaces), or the HVAC system through your ducts. So venting crawl space is not a solution, and is even worse than the problem.
The good news is that Basement Systems developed the CleanSpace System, a ultimate solution to vented dirt crawl spaces. The CleanSpace System completely isolates your home from the earth, dramatically reducing the humidity level in the air and in some cases, eliminating mold growth, rot, and critters from your crawl space to make the entire house healthier. And once you encapsulate your crawl space with our patented vapor barrier system, you will even gain valuable storage space in your home.

Comment: I own two homes at this address. They both have crawl spaces and I believe they have to much moisture. One home is about 800 sqft crawl space and the other is about 1600 sqft crawl space. I would like both to be clean dry and insulated. If you see any problems with the floor joist we will fix that too. Thank you

Comment: Never owned a home with a crawl space before. And winter has arrived. The vents are open and I can't seem to find how to close them. IF they close at all. Also there is "cupping" in our wood floor so I know it's had issues with expansion in the past.

Comment: We've had people come before and re-do vapor barrier, install some type of circulation fan, perimeter drain inside the crawl space. seal vents, and install a sump pump but moisture/humidity remains down there. We recently had the HVAC re-ducted and i dont want that investment to get thrown away because there is still an environment that is causing it to condensate down there.
