There’s A Growing Problem In Your Crawlspace
Once the Aqua-Guard Crawlspace System has eliminated the water that was penetrating your home’s foundation, the next step toward securing a healthy home is sealing off the crawl space to all outside elements and bring the relative humidity level down. Encapsulation creates an environment where mold, mildew and fungi cannot grow.
For years, the perceived solution to a damp crawl space was to vent it—allowing outside air to come in. Venting to the outside can actually make the problem worse (especially during the hot, humid summers in the Southeastern U.S.). When warm, humid air enters a cool crawlspace, the humidity turns into condensation which creates an extremely damp crawlspace and an unhealthy environment.
Since a good percentage of the air you breathe in the living space comes from the crawl space, installing the Aqua-Guard Closed Crawlspace System is the next step in creating a healthy home.

The Aqua-Guard Closed Crawlspace System
In addition to closing off all outside vents and sealing the crawlspace door as tight as possible, our Closed Crawlspace System uses a high-strength floor/wall liner called “Flex Seal” to completely close off the crawlspace, ensuring that outside air will not come in.
