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 West Central Customer Testimonials

When Chris Crow first came to my home I told him that I hardly ever went down to the root cellar as I hated going down there, it was scary looking and such a mess. When the job was done I went down there and could not believe what a huge transform they had done on it. I am still in shock, I now am not scared to go into the root cellar it is a whole new different room. To all that are reading this Chris Crow and his crew are professional, reasonable and take pride and quality in their work. I did have a few early mornings with them but it was worth it. You are ace in my book guys.

Chris's crew cleaned the crawl space and did a fantastic job in preparing the space. They went above and beyond to ensure that the crawl space was sealed and that the trouble spots were addressed. They were on time and provided excellent customer service. Chris took the time to prepare the photos to show the crawl space trouble spots and was very honest in all of his recommendations. His team cleaned the workspace when they were done and then Chris took after photos to show what was done. While this is not a visible home improvement, it has improved the humidity in the house and in the windows. This was a worthwhile investment and would recommend this business to anyone needing this work done.

We had a small addition with a crawlspace added to our house two years ago. The crawlspace gets very cold in the winter and I wanted someone to tell me what could be done to keep it warmer. Mr. Chris Crow, who gave me the estimate and also performed the work, did an excellent job. He explained what he thought the problem was, gave me several options and then did the work and more. He added a small heating duct, additional insulation and a custom-made insulated, wooden door. In addition, he tidied up the wiring, replaced some poorly installed insulation and put down a new vapor barrier. He also sent me some pictures to show what had been done. Chris really knows crawlspaces and I highly recommend him.
