Crawl Space Problem Signs in Lansing

Most crawl spaces are only up to three feet high, so they can be tough to squeeze into, and they often have nasty conditions you wouldn’t want to expose yourself to. That is why we do not recommend that you go into your Lansing crawl space to check for problems on your own. It is best to leave that to one of our inspectors who is properly equipped to handle difficult crawl space conditions. Your FSM inspector will check for leaking water, excessive humidity, ineffective vapor barriers, wet insulation, pests, mold, and wood rot. Throughout the rest of your home, though, you can keep an eye out for increased pest activity, mold growth, unpleasant odors, and uneven floors.

What are the Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Lansing?

Humidity is the number one cause of crawl space issues, and the way your Lansing home was built plays a significant role in how humidity impacts your house. Open crawl space vents have been required by building codes for many years; they were intended to create better airflow to minimize moisture and humidity issues. However, humid air and water only become trapped in the crawl space because of the vents. Lansing has a humid continental climate and receives 33 inches of rain and 46 inches of snow annually, so all this humidity and precipitation can easily inundate the crawl space. The stack effect is also worsened and allows mold spores and other toxins to rise into your living space and circulate in the air. 

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair Solutions in Lansing

The repair and encapsulation solutions your Lansing crawl space needs depends on various factors like the unique challenges it faces and the extent of any damage. Your FSM inspector may recommend crawl space support posts, interior drains, sump pumps, thermal insulation, encapsulation with vapor barriers and vent covers, and dehumidifiers. All these products are completely customizable, protected by long-lasting warranties, and made in the United States.
