To maintain a healthy moisture level in your home or office after a water-related disaster, you must get your structure properly dried ASAP. If not, you will run the risk of mold, rot and structural damages for water can sneak into all sorts of crevices and cracks in a building.

We will also track progress with monitoring equipment.

Moisture Control Techniques of Superior Basement

A vapor barrier is most commonly used to present moisture. Usually made from a plastic or foil sheet, a vapor barrier is used to prevent moisture from coming into your home through walls, ceilings, and floors. The vapor barrier creates an additional envelope of protection when installed in your basement or crawlspaceto prevent air from seeping up and into your home or office.

Basically, a vapor barrier is what stands between your home and the weather in the bowels of your basement or crawl space. A state-of-the-art vapor barrier allows you to save energy, lower your energy bill. You know you have an energy-efficient home when you feel comfortable indoors while enjoying the feeling of saving money on your monthly expenses.

If you experience inconsistent heating and cooling at your home or office, it is time to get a vapor barrier. The barrier will prolong the life of your basement or crawlspace by reducing the temperature and limiting the entry of humidity into your home. Allowing extra humidity into your home is a recipe for disaster because it opens the door for mold growth, termites, fungi, wood-loving insects, and other pests that are attracted to humidity.

Professional Dehumidification Drying by Superior Basement

What to do if you find water or condensation in your crawl space? Time is of the essence here. Removing water quickly keeps damage to a minimum – less time for the water to penetrate walls, floors, and anything else in its path. After removing water, the crawl space may look dry, but there is a good chance they are still retaining moisture.

Most building materials are porous and will retain significant water; this water retention will cause building materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage. So it is essential to dry and dehumidify properly with air movers, fans, and dehumidifiers.
