Regular Maintenance Tasks After Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation is an effective way to protect your structure from water damage and control the humidity levels in your crawl space. But even after the encapsulation, monitoring and maintenance of the crawl space in your Knoxville home is still important. Often homeowners assume that because the encapsulation is completed, nothing more is needed to protect the area. However, this is not the case. Regular monitoring and maintenance are required to protect the crawl space and ensure no issues have developed. American Foundation & Waterproofing can perform regular monitoring and maintenance for your crawl space, such as annual inspection services. Our crawl space inspections in Knoxville include checking the insulation, crawl space humidity level, wood components for mold or rot, and ensuring dehumidifiers and sump pumps are in good working condition.

Monitoring Moisture Levels & Addressing Issues

Our Knoxville crawl space maintenance services include monitoring the environment for changing moisture levels. Seasonal changes, heavy rains, and equipment failure can lead to excessive moisture. High levels of moisture can damage your structure and cause poor indoor air quality. An ideal humidity level for a crawl space is between 40% and 55%. A level over 65% can lead to mold growth, wood rot, and pest infestation, all of which can impact the air quality and structural components of your home. American Foundation & Waterproofing in Knoxville provides crawl space monitoring and will address the moisture levels in your crawl space to ensure all aspects of your encapsulation are working effectively.

Periodic Inspections & Repairs

Regular monitoring of your crawl space is an important part of maintaining a healthy crawl space, especially if it has not been encapsulated. Annual inspections can identify any issues and make repairs before the problems become larger. Our professionals can monitor moisture levels and address problems as they occur.
