4 Steps to Conditioning a Crawl Space

Thursday, July 15th, 2021 by Crystal Bonner


Did you know half of the air you breathe in your home comes from the crawl space or basement? Your vented dirt crawl space can affect your health, comfort, and cost you money - more than you know! The air inside the crawl space is musty and full of mold spores, mildew, dust mites, and bacteria. Moisture in the crawl space also causes mold growth and dry rot, which damages the structure of your home.

The good news is health, comfort, and structural problems caused by crawl space moisture can be avoided with a complete crawl space dehumidification and encapsulation system from 3 Pros Basement Systems.

There are 4 steps to totally eliminate any negative effects on the rest of the house caused by your dirt crawl space: 

  • STEP 1: If there is any water leakage- it needs to be fixed. We can correct and prevent water intrusion in the crawl space by installing an interior drainage system and a sump pump.
  • STEP 2: Isolate the house from the earth. We install our CleanSpace vapor barrier over the interior walls and the floor to seal out moisture.
  • STEP 3: Seal the vents and other outside air leaks. This prevents humid outside air from entering the crawl space. 
  • STEP 4: Condition your crawl space air. Install a dehumidifier to maintain a proper humidity level in the crawl space to help protect against mold, mildew, and wood rot.
