Frequently Asked Questions About Moisture Control

Moisture issues often occur in crawl spaces and other areas of the home. When you have excess moisture, it can lead to a variety of problems. Too much moisture can cause mold and mildew to grow, which can cause health problems for your family, as well as damage to wooden elements and insulation in your crawl space. Additional water damage can lead to dangerous structural issues for your house. A moisture problem can also attract pests to your house.

Process For Dehumidifier System

  • During the initial inspection process, our Service Coordinator will record moisture readings in flooring components in the crawlspace. Excessive moisture content is considered readings above 19%.
  • Condensation on ductwork, insulation, and even wooden floor components are typical signs of a humidity-based moisture problem.
  • Once our service coordinator has completed the inspection process, we will determine the required unit and other job details.

Installation usually includes the following:

  • Installation of Sante Fe Model Dehumidifier (Santa Fe Compact II for average crawl spaces, Santa Fe Advance II for larger crawlspaces)
  • Installation of vapor barrier at 100% ground coverage (Standard barrier thickness is 6mil, but we offer thicker barrier options up to 9mil for an additional charge)
  • All necessary wiring is performed by our licensed electrician.
  • All necessary plumbing utilizing PVC piping and, in some instances, a condensate pump is needed.
  • Foundation Vent Sealing to keep outside air from entering the crawlspace.

Dehumidifier Maintenance/Warranty

  • After the initial install, it is important to keep the dehumidifier running at peak performance. In order to ensure this, we offer all customers the first year of maintenance-free of charge! This includes a 6 month follow up for necessary filter changes, moisture readings, and unit setting adjustments.
  • Customers have the option to extend the service plan annually to keep the Dehumidifier serviced once every 6 months. When this is renewed our company offers our no questions asked warranty plan; meaning if your dehumidifier ever fails in our dehumidifier service program we will repair or replace at NO additional cost to you!

Insulation Removal & Replacement Services

One of the casualties of a moisture problem is often the insulation in the affected areas. When insulation gets wet, it's not only not as effective at performing its job; it also can lead to mold problems, which can compromise the health of your family. If any of your insulation has become damaged due to moisture, we offer removal and replacement services. We’ll take out the damaged insulation and replace it with new insulation.

Add-On Services

In addition to our other moisture control services, we also provide crawlspace doors and crawlspace insulation installation.
