When the insulation for the crawl space under your house is not adequately insulated, it can create big problems. Most crawl spaces are susceptible to moisture and deterioration issues because the high humidity of the soil that surrounds crawl spaces can cause moisture, leading to mold and mildew. Our insulation contractors at Delmarva Insulation provide Delaware residents with expert crawl space insulation services to ensure your home is healthy and comfortable. We will properly air seal and insulate your crawl space, so you save on energy costs and fresh air circulates through your home.
Why Do I Have a Crawl Space?
Crawl spaces act as a ventilated basement allowing outside air to circulate underneath your home. Besides elevating your home for ventilation, crawl spaces also serve as a convenient place to install HVAC units, piping, and electrical wiring. It’s critical to keep this area insulated and clean because, as your home naturally breathes, crawl space air enters your home. Without installing the best insulation for your crawl space, a moist, dirty space will result in low quality inside air.
Common Crawl Space Issues
Excess moisture is often the start of most crawl space problems. You may notice red flags that signal crawl space issues including:
Moisture – If you notice moisture in your crawl space, it is likely that the vapor barrier isn’t properly restricting crawl space moisture.
Condensation on Surfaces – When warm, humid air enters your crawl space, it meets cool air resulting in condensation.
Falling Insulation – When insulation fails, it acts as a wick drawing moisture to cause damage to the crawl space.
Moldy Surfaces – Mold can create dry rot in the structural elements of your home, causing damage over time.
Pests – Mice, insects, and other pests leave behind droppings and create a dirty crawl space.
