Our team uses a specialized dry-air system to protect your home from crawlspace mold.

One of the most common ways in which mold enters homes is through the crawlspace. Moisture from the soil frequently condenses on the crawlspace walls, creating a humid environment that is hospitable to mold growth. One popular technique used to combat this process is crawlspace encapsulation, which involves covering the walls, ceiling, and floor of the space with waterproof sheeting. In our experience at Turners Underseal, though, crawlspace encapsulation is not very effective for preventing crawlspace mold. Instead, we use a multi-point dry-air distribution system to remove moisture from this area and make the environment hostile to mold growth.

Crawlspace Mold in Jacksonville, Florida

Crawlspace encapsulation generally focuses on keeping moisture out with barriers, which is not terribly reliable, especially in highly humid environments such as ours here in Florida. Encapsulation is also passive—if one of the moisture barriers failed, the system would have no way to correct itself. In contrast, our system of dehumidifiers and dry air distributors focuses on continually removing moisture from the air in the crawlspace. This does a better job of keeping the air dry, which makes it more effective for preventing crawlspace mold.
