Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Huntsville, AL

Many homes throughout Huntsville and northern Alabama have a crawl space beneath the main living area. Some homeowners consider this area as “out of sight and out of mind,” but it is important to pay attention to its condition. If the crawl space is wet and humid, which is common because of Huntsville’s muggy and wet weather, it will become a breeding ground for mold and pests. 

No one should have to live with these dangers lurking beneath their feet.

Crawl Space Problems in Huntsville

Your Huntsville crawl space might contain essentials like plumbing and ductwork, but it might also have toxic mold and harmful pest waste, all of which are reasons why you should not venture into your crawl space. If you suspect trouble brewing in this area, there are different problem signs you will notice around your house including sagging floors, musty odors, mold growth, increased pest activity, elevated humidity, and high electric bills. During a free inspection from an AFS expert, they will check for those issues as well as condensation, wood rot, damaged vapor barriers, wet insulation, and flooding or standing water inside your crawl space. 

What are the Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Huntsville?

Crawl space issues are most often caused by how the home was constructed as well as environmental factors. Most Huntsville houses with subterranean spaces were constructed with open vents to help with moisture problems. However, vents have proven to be the real culprit in the difficulties associated with dampness. Given Huntsville’s humid subtropical climate and 55 inches of annual rainfall, this is extremely problematic. The stack effect is also at work in a home with open crawl space vents. Mold spores and foul smells will ascend from the crawl space and up through the rest of the house because of the stack effect, which is the natural airflow in a structure from bottom to top. Additionally, if a home’s load was improperly estimated, over spanned floor joists will fail to properly support the home.
