Sometimes, your crawl space can seem a world away. After all, you don’t see it very often or have many reasons to go down there. However, your crawl space is one of the most important parts of your home. Taking control of its health keeps your home and family protected from health hazards and structural damage.

Due to the semi-hidden nature of your crawl space, problem signs below your home may not be immediately noticeable. Certain issues will start in your crawl space such as mold or dry rot. However, these issues will eventually spread into your home, posing a threat to your personal health and your home’s structural integrity. Other problem signs will affect the inside of your home. You will notice rising indoor humidity or a sagging, uneven floor. These problem signs don’t fix themselves, so call FSM immediately to proactively defend your Jackson home.
What are the Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Jackson?
Jackson’s consistently wet environment creates a serious threat to your crawl space. In fact, the area only receives about 174 sunny days per year, much less than the national average of 205. With this constant barrage of wet weather, moisture easily seeps into your crawl space and causes damage. When it evaporates, it releases humid air into your crawl space which eventually rises into your home through a process known as the stack effect. Over time, the stack effect damages floor joists, causes wood to rot, forces humidity levels to rise, and pulls mold spores into your home.
Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair Solutions in Jackson
Keeping your crawl space healthy is easy with FSM. Our world-class solutions work to keep all forms of moisture out of your crawl space. Crawl space encapsulation keeps outdoor humidity and water from seeping below your home. We use vapor barriers and dehumidifiers to stop water vapor in its tracks. Moreover, we use sump pumps, interior drains, and drainage matting to filter water away from the crawl space. Finally, wall insulation keeps the crawl space environment well-controlled even during heavy rain or snow in Jackson.
Michigan can be a cold and wet place in certain areas, and Jackson is no exception. This barrage of moisture takes a toll on your crawl space. Our local experts understand how Jackson’s climate directly affects your home, and we’re committed to fixing any problem that arises. We’ve received service awards from Angi and Home Advisor, as well as official accreditations from the Better Business Bureau that prove our quality business practices.
