Professional Crawl Space Solutions
Often many homes in Silver Spring were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. It was standard to construct crawl spaces with vents to the outside, which helped to keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. But, these vents can actually backfire, as having these vents can allow water to get into the crawl space during heavy rain. With no where to go, the water tends to stay in the crawl space resulting in high humidity levels causing the growth of mold.
At American Eagle Professional Services, we know the most efficient way to protect crawl spaces from excess moisture and how to control the humidity levels. Often, this is best achieved by utilizing the encapsulation process: which involves installing a waterproof line, sometimes accompanied by other waterproofing systems to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation stops bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space so you can use it for safe storage. We can also install a crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home in Silver Spring, Maryland.
