How Do We Do It?

The slideshow above shows a typical Tacoma area crawl space with an old ineffective vapor barrier. Notice the hanging insulation, a favorite nesting area for rodents. Moisture from the dirt floor has also reached the insulation decreasing its effectiveness and causing a musty odor throughout the crawl space area.

The same Tacoma area crawl space is then shown after being fully reconditioned. The vapor barrier is a 10 mil product that is virtually puncture resistant. The entire area has been cleaned and sealed so moisture can no longer damage the wood or the insulation. The result is a clean, moisture free environment that will protect your home year after year, not to mention it looks great too.

Your Crawl Space

The area under your home is probably the least visited part of your home, definitely the most neglected and yet it has a significant impact on the health of your home and the quality of the air you breathe inside your home. In the past the crawl space was not even considered a part of the home. Unfortunately yesterdays crawl spaces probably had way too much in common with a tropical jungle providing a five star hotel for pests, molds and mildew.

Today we know that your crawl space has a direct impact on preserving your home, improving the quality of the air in your home while also increasing energy efficiency.

The crawl space needs to be seen as part of the building as a whole. If there is high humidity and musty odors downstairs it will also affect the upstairs environment as well. Some builders say that up to 30% of the air we breathe in the first floor comes directly from your crawl space. This is particularly true when it comes to older more leaky homes.
