How A Crawl Space Works
If your house has a crawl space, you’ve probably noticed the foundation vents on the outside of your home. The original purpose of these vents was to circulate and replace tile air in the crawl space with fresh air from the outside. For many years, this system appeared to work very, well. New Scientific Studies have shown that conventionally vented crawl spaces may not only cost you more energy dollars, but may also cause serious threats to your indoor air quality.
How Our Homes Breathe
Air enters the crawl space. Where the hot, moist outside air meets the cool surfaces inside, condensation occurs, which can lead to mold your home.
Even without warm, moist air entering through the foundation vents, or by condensation, moisture will still impact your home through the natural moisture vapors which rise from the ground below your home. What can be done to remedy the multiple sources of moisture in your crawl space?
CrawlSpace Care Is the Answer
With CrawlSpace Care, natural ground moisture vapors and hot humid air entering through the foundation vents will be a thing of the past.
What is CrawlSpace Care?
CrawlSpace Care is a system that was developed for closing and protecting your home’s crawl space. Using innovative technology, the CrawlSpace Care system reduces moisture underneath your home, which can lead to low energy bills and improved indoor air quality.
The CrawlSpace Care system protects your home from the bottom up and controls moisture with:
- High quality reinforced vapor liner to cover the ground and walls

- Mechanical drying
Protection For Your Home
With CrawlSpace Care, you’re protected against:
