3 Common Sings of a Crawl Space Problem - Image 1

If your crawl space begins to have problems, these issues will extend to the rest of your house. A number of comfort and energy problems are caused by inadequate or incorrect crawl space insulation. To help you figure out if your crawl space is the problem, we’ve come up with a list of 3 common signs of a crawl space problem.  Be proactive and identify if your home needs a permanent solution today.

More than ever, homeowners are stuck inside, and this is the perfect opportunity to address your crawl space concerns. Let’s work together to make the most of this unexpected time at home. 

Sign #1: Uneven Floors

Uneven floors on the main level of your home can be a sign of a moisture problem in your crawl space area. This leads to multiple other unwanted problems in your space. With uneven floors, it would also be hard or impossible to use the space for storage.

Our Solution: The best solution for your uneven floors would be our SmartJack System. These steel supports to level the floor joists by adding extra support to sagging floors. This strong system can support more than 60,000 lbs. and is adjustable. 

Sign #2: Foul Odors in Home

If moisture is getting into your crawl space it can cause mold and foul odors. These odors can then spread throughout your home, giving an uncomfortable and unhealthy airflow throughout your house.

Our Solution: To deal with issues relating to moisture, like mold, smells, TerraFirma will install a VaporLoc Barrier System. A vapor barrier controls the passage of air into the crawl space and stops air movement for the ground which can turn your crawl space into a semi-conditioned space. Our VaporLoc also blocks the movement of harmful gases from entering your home.

 

Sign #3: Heightened Allergies or Asthma Signs

Having bad air quality running through your house is not an easy catch. If you have often signs of asthma or allergies that you haven’t had previously, your crawl space may be the problem. 

Our Solution: TerraFirma's Aprilaire dehumidifier removes up to 95 pints of water every day!

All of our Aprilaire dehumidifiers are designed and manufactured in the U.S. and built to last. Once TerraFirma installs your Aprilaire dehumidifier, you can rest easy knowing that your home is now protected from mold, mildew, odors, and humidity. To provide you with even more peace of mind, the Aprilaire is backed with a 5-year warranty.

If you're having a problem with your crawl space, you've come to the right place. Whatever your issue, we have the products and experience that you need to find the best solution. Contact TerraFirma for a free evaluation of your crawl space!
