Keep Moisture Out Of Your Crawlspace
December 14, 2004
High moisture in a crawlspace will eventually work its way up into your living area through cracks in and around the sub floor as well as up through your furnace duct system, and will cause condensation on your windows.
To rectify this problem, consider insulating the perimeter walls in the crawlspace and between joists over top of the concrete wall with rigid foam insulation and sealing it with acoustical caulking.
Installing a Humidex crawlspace ventilation device will exhaust the high moisture content from the crawlspace cavity eliminating the window condensation and drying out the wood floor structure.
Spray all mold areas with ˝ water and ˝ bleach mixture. It is recommended that a certified installer install Humidex ventilation systems.
If you would like to obtain a Humidex for your home, please call Wayne toll-free at 1-888-215-9023
