Here’s a shocking piece of basement trivia for you: 50 percent of the air you breathe inside of your home rises directly to you and any other occupants from your basement/crawlspace.
That’s why at Apollo Basement Waterproofing Queens NY, we are proud to offer crawl space waterproofing amongst our plethora of basement waterproofing services.
If your home’s basement has a crawl space, you are at risk for unwanted water entry and/or flooding if your basement crawl space is not properly and professionally waterproofed. At Apollo Basement Waterproofing Queens NY, our basement waterproofing experts have mastered the following types of basement waterproofing system for your crawl space:
Just a little background on crawl spaces. As you know, a crawl space is an area with limited height found in many basements (hence the name “crawl” space), especially those basements in older homes. The crawl space was intended to promote air circulation through your home from a vent and serve as an access point for plumbing, duct work, wiring work, and other maintenance/repair needs.
Unfortunately, in our experience, the majority of crawl spaces are not insulated properly or at all, thus humidity, unwanted water entry and/or flooding can be a problem. What this can mean for homeowners is a breeding ground for mold and mildew on any surface, energy loss, poor air quality, and higher energy bills.
When you hire our team to fix your basement crawl space, we use our foolproof system for crawl space repair.
First, we fully inspect and troubleshoot any issues in your current basement and basement crawl space. Then we go into your crawl space and seal up the existing vent. Why do we seal up the vent in your crawl space? As we mentioned above, crawl spaces are used as an access point to various repair needs including crawl space foundation repair. But with modern innovations in ductwork, a vent in your crawl space is no longer needed and should be sealed up permanently. Trust us, your lungs will thank you.
Next we expertly install an airproof vapor barrier system. We also utilize dehumidifiers to decrease moisture levels which means we reduce the likelihood of mold, mildew, pests such as termites and dust mites, odor, allergens, and anything else that can impact air quality in your home.
