Crawl Space Drainage Matting
Excess water in your crawl space isn’t just bothersome—it’s a threat to your home’s foundation. From fostering mold to causing structural issues, poor water management can lead to significant problems.
Water has no place in your crawl space, and our drainage matting efficiently channels it towards systems that effectively expel it from your home. AFS excels in identifying and resolving these challenges, offering tailored crawl space encapsulation solutions for a dry and healthy crawl space.
What is Crawl Space Drainage Matting?
Crawl space drainage matting is an essential tool in combating moisture. This sturdy, dimpled mat is designed to lie beneath your home.
More than just a mat, it’s made from durable high-density polyethylene, forming an effective route that steers unwanted water to a drainage system. It plays a vital role in water management, enhancing the overall health of your home.
When used alongside other waterproofing strategies, encapsulation and dehumidification, drainage matting becomes a comprehensive solution for existing and potential water issues, safeguarding your home’s structure and air quality. Additionally, it strengthens the floor, making it more suitable for storage and access when used under a vapor barrier.
