Sources Of Crawl Space Moisture
Why You Don’t Want A Humid Crawl Space
A damp, humid crawl space is the perfect petri dish for mold, wood rot, and pest infestation.
It can not only affect the health of you and your family but can also cause damage to the wooden structures in the crawl space leading to things like rotten support piers. Since the crawl space support piers hold up your home, you want them to be solid and structurally sound.
A humid crawl space can also affect energy costs since damp air is harder to heat and cool. While we can’t guarantee it, customers have told us their energy costs were reduced after encapsulating their crawl space and installing a dehumidifier.

AMC911’s Most Common Crawl Space Solution: Crawl Space Encapsulation Plus A Dehumidifier
If you want a safe, clean, dry crawl space, encapsulation plus a crawl space dehumidifier is the way to go. Crawl space encapsulation involves sealing the vents, insulating the walls, and covering the floor and walls of the crawl space with a thick vapor-retarding barrier. A dehumidifier is added to ensure humidity remains low. A crawl space that has been encapsulated and includes a dehumidifier is a great place to store things like tools and holiday decorations.
