ARCO Restoration for Crawl Space Repair

A crawl space is a shallow area typically found beneath a building that provides access to utilities, plumbing, and other systems. Crawl spaces are often characterized by limited headroom and are not designed for regular occupancy. Crawl space repair is necessary when issues arise that can compromise the structural integrity of the building or the health and safety of its occupants. Common problems in crawl spaces include moisture intrusion, water damage, mold growth, pest infestations, and structural issues. If you are experiencing problems with your crawl space, contact ARCO Restoration today.

Signs of a Crawl Space Problem

Would you know if there was a problem with your crawl space? Here are five signs that may indicate an issue:

  • Moisture and Water Damage – Excessive moisture or standing water in a crawl space can lead to mold growth, rotting wooden structures, and damage to insulation. Look for signs of dampness, water stains, or visible mold growth.
  • Foul Odors – If you notice musty or unpleasant odors coming from a crawl space, it could indicate moisture issues or the presence of mold and mildew. These odors can seep into the living areas above and may indicate a ventilation or moisture problem.
  • Sagging or Uneven Floors – If the floors above the crawl space feel uneven or sag in certain areas, it may indicate a problem with the foundation or structural integrity. Crawl space issues like soil settling or weakened supports can contribute to floor problems.
  • Pest Infestations – Crawl spaces can provide a favorable environment for pests like rodents, insects, and termites. Signs of infestation may include droppings, chewed wires or insulation, visible tunnels, or pest activity in the crawl space.
  • Unusually High Energy Bills – If your energy bills have significantly increased unexpectedly, it could be due to insulation problems in the crawl space. Inadequate insulation or air leaks in the crawl space can cause temperature fluctuations, increasing heating or cooling costs.

Available Crawl Space Services

ARCO Restoration offers a wide array of crawl space repair services. Each of these services plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy and functional crawl space:

  • Crawl Space Encapsulation – Crawl space encapsulation involves sealing the crawl space from moisture and outside elements. It typically includes installing a vapor barrier on the walls and floor, sealing air leaks, and insulating pipes. This helps prevent moisture, mold, and pests from entering the crawl space, improving indoor air quality and protecting the home’s structural integrity.
  • Crawl Space Vapor Barrier – A crawl space vapor barrier is a protective layer, usually made of thick plastic, installed on the walls and floor of the crawl space. It acts as a barrier against moisture, preventing water vapor from seeping through the walls and floor and causing damage. The vapor barrier helps maintain a dry and healthy crawl space.
  • Crawl Space Dehumidifier – A crawl space dehumidifier is an appliance designed specifically for controlling humidity levels in the crawl space. It helps remove excess moisture from the air, preventing condensation, mold growth, and structural damage. A dehumidifier is particularly useful in areas with high humidity or with common moisture issues.
  • Crawl Space Insulation – Crawl space insulation involves installing insulation materials in the crawl space’s walls, ceiling, or floor. This helps regulate temperature and energy efficiency, preventing heat loss or gain from the crawl space. Insulation also helps create a barrier against moisture and can improve overall comfort within the home while reducing energy costs.
