Waterproofing and Weatherization
Crawl Space Encapsulation
A Knoxville crawl space with standing water or high humidity can lead to mold, wood rot, termites, high utility bills, structural damage, wood floors to cup and can even prevent the sale of real estate, according to EPA. Installing a system to remove standing water in a crawl space while controlling humidity is a great first step.
Basement Waterproofing is vital if you have a wet basement. A sump pump is a great way to move water out of the basement. Bowing walls are common in wet basements. A Flood, improper drainage, poor grading and even clogged drain tiles can cause water to enter the basement. A properly sized basement dehumidifier is vital in controlling humidity in a wet basement.
Attic Insulation & Spray Foam Insulation
According to the Department of Energy, Attic insulation is vital and one of the best investments made to conserving energy. Radiant barriers and solar attic fans help reduce attic heat. Spray foam insulation keeps conditioned air in your living space longer. Choosing the right R value for your climate zone is key to staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Mold Inspection & Remediation
Mold can grow anywhere the relative humidity is 60% or higher if there is an adequate food source. Crawl spaces have a lot of food for mold to feed on and grow. If your region is experiencing 90 degree days, your air conditioner is running harder and longer to keep you cool. Soda blasting is a great way to perform mold removal.
