Crawl Space Services
Encapsulation, Moisture Control, Clean-Up & More
You might not normally think of your crawl space when considering the health of your heating and air conditioning unit. But the truth is that they play a significant role in the air quality and comfort of your home or office – sometimes for the better, but sometimes not. Here at Rich’s Heating and Air Conditioning, our professionals understand the importance of each of your building’s regulation systems, and that includes using the crawl space to keep the air clear and comfortable. Homes and even commercial spaces located in southeastern North Carolina have a long history featuring open or vented crawl spaces below main floors that you can use for storage or to house functioning equipment that won’t easily fit on any other levels. But these useful areas also tend to fall victim to moisture accumulation and subsequent mold buildup. Fortunately, our team of highly trained service technicians who know how to minimize these issues at a fair rate for you.
Services We Offer:
Crawl Space Encapsulation
The most effective way to protect your home from the North Carolina humidity is by encapsulating your crawl space. Crawl space encapsulation helps to lower your energy bill, improve the air quality in your home, and protect your financial investment in your home. Crawl space encapsulation works by cleaning out the area beneath your home and lining the perimeter walls, foundation pillars, and floor with heavy duty plastic to restrict air flow into the home from the crawl space. Read our blog to learn more about encapsulating your crawl space.
The first step to a functional and safe crawl space is controlling the moisture that accumulates below the surface of your home or workspace. Our team offers crawl space enclosure services for that exact purpose, which helps keep moisture from rising to any upper levels of the building and concentrates it in one location. That way, you can focus other preventative measures, like checking for foundational leaks and gauging the moisture levels after a heavy rain, in one spot and hopefully keep the buildup and its resulting damage to a minimum.
Seal Your Crawl Space
Warm air rises from the ground, taking any cool air and residual mold in the crawl space with it. That’s why we recommend investing in reliable sealing methods to seal your crawl space and make it that much more difficult for these substances to make their way into your home or workplace. Airborne mold spores and dangerous bacteria is less likely to rise up through your floors if you’ve had a professional seal your crawl space accordingly, not to mention doing so keeps pungent odors from seeping into common areas as well. These can be indicative of bigger problems happening in your crawl space, but as long as you are diligent in having it checked out for moisture problems, you should be able to catch the issue without having to smell it on the main level.
Crawl Space Clean-up
Because crawl spaces are infamous for having mold and other unhealthy side effects from moisture accumulation and climate, it’s important that you have someone you can trust to periodically clean it up. Clearing the area of mold spores, bacteria, and other harmful substances is great for making the air in your home or office easier on your lungs, and can help manage any odors that might have become issues for you later on, when the problem continued to grow into something much harder to handle on your own, or even with the help of a professional. Don’t wait for an issue to present itself – call us today to schedule a free consultation and take the first step in keeping your home comfortable and healthy all year long.
