The theories behind the control of humidity in crawlspaces of buildings have changed over the years. It has been previously believed that the proper way to control humidity has been to utilize foundation vents to increase air flow within the crawlspace. The increase of air flow was designed to allow humidity to escape through the foundation vents to the outside of the building. Building codes required installing foundation vents according to the size of the crawlspace.

Building codes have now changes throughout the country to allow for "conditioned crawlspaces". The foundation vents that were originally designed to eliminate humidity actually help to increase the level of humidity in most crawlspaces. Instead of allowing humidity to escape, the foundation vents allowed hot, humid air in the summer to enter the cool crawlspace. The humid air then condensed on the cool water pipes and air conditioning pipes and dramatically increased the level of humidity in the crawlspace.

The increase of humidity created conditions suitable for mold and fungus growth. "Conditioned crawlspaces" eliminate excessive humidity in crawlspaces and help eliminate the conditions that allow for mold and mildew growth. Crawlspace Doctor has developed systems to control humidity in crawlspaces.

Georgia North West Customer Testimonials

During the recent Atlanta floods, I found some water in my crawl space. Fortunately my neighbor recommended Crawlspace Doctor. After reviewing all my bids, I decided to go with Crawlspace Doctor due to his logical and sensible recomendations. His price was very fair for the job. He showed on our scheduled day; his crew was couteous and professional. They completed in 2 days the entire large crawlspace. I'm no longer afraid to crawl down there! I wish I had done this years ago. I highly recommend Crawlspace Doctor.

My experience with Crawlspace Doctor, Inc. was more than I bargained for. He arrived on time for the estimate, explained the process thoroughly, arrived on time for the work, and finished in a timely fashion. The work was neat, and complete. Several months later he returned to measure humidity and temperature in the crawlspace and they were both within a good range. I would recommend them highly to anyone wishing to encapsulate their crawlspace!

Richard Ossie, co-owner, was a pleasure to work with. Prompt response to initial phone call, immediate free consultation appointment, complete and thorough explanation of problems with digital photos, complete and thorough explanation of recommended remedy. I met with three other companies as well and went through the same process. Richard's pricing was competitive and the attention to detail was superior. The work was done promptly and thoroughly when scheduled. Richard was always responsive by phone or in person when we had questions and followed up in person after completion of the job to make sure we were satisfied.

I hired Richard to clean up and dry out a very nasty crawlspace after getting 3 other proposals. My decision was based mostly on reviews on Kudzu. Richard put me in touch with another firm to clean up the mold that my procrastination had allowed to get out of control, then he carried out his proposal, including bringing in another company to spray foam insulation on the crawlspace walls and adjacent wood structure. Then the real complications began. My termite company said the foam prevented them from doing a valid inspection. Worse, several months later I was selling the house and needed a termite letter for closing. Richard and I had no luck getting the foam-spraying company to remove the foam from the areas needed for inspection, so he came back and devoted 2 man-days of effort in removing that foam -- at no charge to me. Richard is a man of the highest integrity. Combine that with his knowledge, dependability, and work ethic, and I give him my highest possible recommendation.
