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.

Thank You,
Carl & Phyllis Prulhiere

We were very pleased with Chris Crow and his detailed estimate. It seemed very fair. He finished what he had promised and found other problems such as termites had eaten the 2.4's and would need replacing. We were very grateful that they did not just 'do the job they came for' and let it go. We had them to repair the 2.4's and they did an excellent job. The employees that were on the job every day were very diligent and energetic. The whole experience was very pleasant. I would recommend the CrawlSpace Doctor to anyone who had a problem of this sort.

Ed and Karen Johnson

Cleaned crawlspace, dug ''french drain'' with sump pump, installed vapor barrier and stabilized appropriate ductwork and miscellaneous lines with plastic hangers, getting everything off the crawlspace floor. Chris Crow and his crew did what they said they would do. Chris was very responsive and professional in his approach. His crew was very conscientious and sensitive to our needs. I am very satisfied with the work performed and the level of customer service.
