Crawlspace Waterproofing Services
If your home has a crawlspace, there’s a high probability your house is sitting on a unhealthy environment. And due to “stack effect” (which causes air in a home to move upward), it’s possible that unhealthy air is moving up throughout your home. Due to the high humidity in the Chicagoland area, having a healthy crawlspace is especially important for the overall health of your home.
Even though a crawlspace is not a livable space, making this space healthy contributes to healthy living space upstairs. Unhealthy crawl spaces, due to moisture and humidity creeping in, creates an environment for mold and mildew to grow on card board boxes, wood floors, insulation, drywall and other surfaces.
In the late 1990’s, vapor barriers where hardly used. Now vapor barriers are used in crawlspaces to prevent soil gases and unhealthy are from moving up throughout the house. And with a crawl space liner, you can help prevent soil gases, mold, mildew, and dry rot from forming.
What is Flexi-Seal?
Flexi-Seal is a reinforced flexible membrane, the main component used in constructing closed, conditioned or vented crawlspaces. Flexi-Seal exceeds ASTM E-1745 requirements for a vapor and moisture barrier. Flexi-Seal conforms to all building code requirements for use in crawlspace encapsulation.
How Flexi-Seal Works??
Entire basements and crawlspaces can be completely sealed off from external moisture and ground vapor. Flexi-Seal transforms a dark dingy foundation into a clean, dry storage area that can be walked on.
