This, combined with other factors, means a significant amount of the air you breathe actually came from your crawlspace. By reducing moisture, soil gases, mold, mildew and improving the overall air quality in your crawlspace, the air you breathe in your home will be cleaner and healthier.

There are many different symptoms of a failing crawl spaces here are a few examples.
Wet crawlspaces with a relative humidity (RH) level over 60% will support mold growth. If the relative humidity exceeds 90%, the wood that supports your home will begin to rot. Even without standing water these humidity levels can be very easily reached.
Rainfall will seek the lowest point of your property which is often the ground in your crawlspace. Even with the proper grading and gutter systems, water can find its way in. The professionals at Foundation Restoration are experts at crawlspace sump pumps and drainage systems.
The humidity levels in your crawlspace directly affect the wood. When the moisture content in beams and floor joist exceed 20% they start to warp and decay. If moisture exceeds 28% the integrity of the wood is compromised. These levels will result in costly repairs that could be avoided.
Rotted or warped beams and floor joist along with inadequate supports are the leading causes of sloping and unlevel floors. Foundation Restoration specializes in stabilizing and lifting your home’s floors. We repair beams, joist, stanchion supports, sill plates, rim joist and subfloors.
