Wet Crawl Space
A&M SafeBasements offers solutions for wet crawl space under your South Bend, Fort Wayne, Plymouth, Warsaw, Auburn, or Marion home. What happens inside this area can impact the rest of your home. Whenever there is an excessive amount of moisture here whenever it rains, you are going to have problems. This water will damage anything in its path, including support beams and floor joists responsible for bearing the weight of your home. When these start to rot, it’s going to cause damage to the structural integrity of your home. Additionally, this rotting wood attracts unwanted critters, including termites, roaches, snakes, spiders, rats, mosquitoes, etc.
Mold is a dark green or black fungus that grows on organic materials below your home and can cause serious health problems for your family. It has been known to cause everything from asthma attacks to skin rashes and all types of difficult medical problems in between. Moisture here and high humidity levels can also foster the development of dangerous mold and mildew.

MoistureTo deal with the excessive moisture below your home, it will be recommended to get this area encapsulated or “sealed off” from the outside world. This way, moisture will not be able to get inside to cause problems. The process is fairly quick, and it will involve the installation of vapor barriers, floor liners, sump pumps, and more. Once everything is installed, you shouldn’t have any more problems with flooding or water damage underneath your home.
HumidityTo get rid of high humidity levels, you can have a dehumidifier installed. We offer a variety of systems which are available in different capacities to best meet the needs of your unique home. There are different capacity dehumidifiers for different-sized homes. Our experts will come to your home, inspect your wet crawl space, and then recommend the perfect system for you. All of our products are designed and manufactured by SafeBasements™, so you can rest easy knowing that your crawl space is going to be protected by a high-quality product that is built to last. Please call us or contact us online for more information.
