One of House Ranger’s biggest strengths, and our top focus when consulting, estimating, and looking through a house, is proper moisture treatment & control. Whether you are located in Richmond, VA, or Las Vegas, NV, moisture buildup is a massive, hidden problem. Many homeowners are completely unaware of the foundational issues and moisture buildup throughout their homes. This moisture buildup, if left untreated, can contribute to a variety of not only physical home issues, but health issues in your family as well.
Prolonged moisture buildup within your crawl space leads to the growth of fungus, mold, and other types of bacteria and airborne pollution that can infiltrate your home’s ventilation system, move through your air-conditioning system, and rise up through your foundation. It’s important to ensure that the moisture treatment is up to par in your home, and House Rangers are the number one choice for crawl space moisture control in the area.
Our team utilizes a variety of moisture control systems to provide a truly in-depth, thorough solution. When we go through our initial consultation process, we’ll walk you through the steps we take to ensure the moisture and humidity levels in your crawl space area are controlled, whether it’s through a vapor barrier installation, crawl space foundation changes, or something else, we will let you know what is needed, what isn’t, and what we recommend. Our professionals at House Rangers are experienced technicians with years of knowledge and hands-on experience.
Vapor Barrier Installation
It’s absolutely vital that vapor is controlled in your home’s crawl space area. Originally, vapor barriers were introduced to help prevent the interior of building spaces from gathering moisture, which would eventually lead to mold or potential foundation problems in the future as the wood of your home absorbs more and more moisture.
Nowadays, the mistakes of home owners & builders from days gone by are becoming more and more evident as we receive more customers coming to us with issues stemming from improperly installed vapor barriers from a renovation decades ago. Often, the same issues that the vapor barrier is initially installed to prevent will begin to arise because of an incorrect fit, or another problem that the vapor barrier installer overlooked. At House Rangers, we take the time necessary to plan out your vapor barrier installation to prevent any future issues from arising and causing a headache.
One of our most commonly used methods to treat wood and home foundations in the crawl space for moisture control is to coat the floor joists, rafters, and other pieces of wood with ClearGuard™ protectant. This is a special substance that, when dry, helps the wood from absorbing excessive amounts of moisture that can lead to warping, cracking, stretching, or bacteria growth.
