Crawl Space Repair and Encapsulation:

Wet crawl spaces with cold and uneven floors, where standing upright to inspect the problem are impossible- have you been in this scenario? When that dingy space smells of mold and moisture with a leaky spot hidden somewhere in it, it is time for you repair it. The crawl space in your house is the most potential ground for health hazards, due to a number of causes like poor air quality, the insects, and rodents crawling through space, rotting wood, perpetual moisture, mold, and mildew.

Crawl space encapsulation stops the moisture from leading to mold growth. It also reduces your bills, by not allowing the hot, damp air from the crawl space to move into your house, increasing the temperature. If not suitably encapsulated, the building materials become exposed and damaged. The ground gasses and moisture in these spaces may cause the floors to buckle or wrap. Moreover, the air in the crawl space constitutes for more than a quarter of the total air flowing through the house. Hence it is vital that a crawl space repair and maintenance takes place from time to time. DryShield Water Solutions Corp is one of the largest waterproofing companies in Canada.
