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.

Indiana East Customer Testimonials

This is a brief note of appreciation for your work on our crawlspace. Your work was excellent; we are very pleased with the results. We do not get any moisture inside the house and the crawl space itself is dry. The pump you installed there has done a wonderful job during the recent heavy rains, which caused problems for many people. It is great to have peace of mind, knowing that the crawl space is protected. We are also happy with your prompt response to any questions and special requests that we had. Keep up the good work. We can recommend your work to anyone without any reservations

Our offices were so damp and musty that sometimes it was hard to breath. The floors had swollen and were buckling in several places. You could actually feel the moisture on the walls. Our expensive recording equipment was deteriorating by the day. The Crawlspace Doctor fixed it all in a few days and has come by a number of times in the last year and a halfjust to check and make sure that everything is OK (at no charge--and the problems have never returned). We have been very satisfied. You'll love Tom, he really is 'the crawl space doctor.

We spent thousands of dollars with a local company that did a very sloppy job and didn't do what they had promised. Luckily we consulted with Tom and he went down into the crawl space and took pictures to show us what was going on. I certainly didn't want to go in there, especially before Tom did his thing. The bottom line, Tom fixed the problem and we went from standing water in the crawl space to a dry crawlspace. Tom came by several times and checked his work, sometimes in the snow. He sticks by his work and will work hard until you are satisfied. Trust us, if we had gone with Tom from the beginning we would have saved money and had it done right the first time. I can't recommend his services enough
