Waterproofing your crawl space can help prevent these issues and ensure that your home or business is safe and sturdy.

CRAWL SPACE ENCAPSULATION
Crawl space encapsulation is the process of adding a strong moisture barrier to the floor, sealing the space completely. This will ensure that the moisture does not penetrate the walls and create longer-term problems. Along with waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation is the best solution to maintaining humidity levels in the crawl space to prevent moisture/mold issues.
