Wood will decay when it is wet. Condensation from soil evaporation or humid air entering the crawl space is a common source.
A soil cover reduces the amount of moisture added to a crawl space. Up to 12 gallons of water a day can evaporate into a 1,000 square foot crawl space.
Warm, humid air contacts
the cool surfaces of a homes insulation, air ducts, walls and sub structure. Condensation causes insulation to get heavy and fall from floors and ducts.
A sealed crawl space prevents wet air from entering through foundation vents, holes and soil. A dehumidifier is installed to condition and maintain the crawl space air.
Water enters a crawl space as a result of a seepage, soil saturation, high water tables, and grading issues leading to high humidity and damage.
Removal of crawl space water can be handled with a well designed drainage and pump system.
