Moisture Barrier Service

There are a lot of good reasons to keep excess moisture from accumulating in your crawl space. The best reason is to avoid wood destroying fungi. Wood with a moisture content greater than 20% is susceptible to decay from wood destroying fungi. Treatment and control entails a general surface spraying to treat all exposed timber.

Fungus also can appear on the wooden timbers in unfinished basements if the moisture level is high. The same treatment is recommended. A dehumidifier should be installed to keep the area dry.

Installing a Moisture Barrier

There are several steps you can take to avoid moisture from building up in your crawl space. One step is to install a moisture barrier. This is a layer of heavy gauge polyethylene on top of the soil, covering 80% of the exposed soil. In this case, depending upon the seriousness of the moisture problem we may also recommend a general surface treatment to treat all exposed wood as well as offering vents for proper ventilation.

B&B will check for excess moisture and that your vents are functioning properly.  Your professional will also be making sure your crawl space is insect and fungus free. In most cases the customer doesn't spend a lot of time in the crawl space. It makes good sense to have a professional inspect your crawl space at least annually. A dry crawl space makes sense for a lot of reasons.
