A region that has a lot of rain and humidity, like West Virginia, is more likely to have an excessive moisture problem in crawl spaces. Damp or wet crawl spaces invite mold contamination, insect attack, and structural rot. They may also contribute to bacterial hazards in the whole house, because whatever is in your crawl space air is in your house and affecting you, whether you spend any time in the crawl space or not.
It was once thought that adding vents to a crawl space was the right solution - that vents would allow moisture to pass in and out and eventually dissipate. But the truth is that the vents actually promote moisture because of the stack effect - a house's natural tendency to draw air in from the crawl space and lower levels upward into living spaces, sucks moist air in rather than letting moist air out!
To eliminate the humid crawl space from having any negative effects on the rest of the house, Basement Systems, the world leader in dry basement and crawl space technology, developed the CleanSpace System, an ultimate solution to vented dirt crawl spaces. The CleanSpace crawl space vapor barrier 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.
The Basement Systems International Network of Authorized CleanSpace dealers is a respected and highly professional network, and whether you live Charleston, Huntington, Parkersburg, Wheeling or Morgantown, we've got you covered.
