Creating a Healthy Crawl Space
Mold Remediation and Moisture Proofing
Does your home have a dirty, wet crawl space beneath it? You may not think much about your crawl space. It’s there to allow easy access for plumbing and electrical repairs, as well as other maintenance, repair, and installation needs.
What you may not know is that a primary function of a crawl space is to promote air circulation through the home. When your crawl space becomes wet, dirty, and moldy, then the air circulating through your home is directly affected.
That means you don’t have to enter your crawl space to be exposed to mold. Air in your crawl space travels through your home, by way of the stack effect. When that warmer air rises, it carries all the particles in the air with it – including crawl space mold.
It’s well known that mold spores contribute to allergies, coughs, and even nosebleeds. Long term exposure to black mold is dangerous to your health and can cause obstructive lung disease.

Cleaning and Sealing Your Crawl Space
At D-Bug, we moisture proof and seal crawl spaces. We are basement waterproofing experts, and we know crawlspaces too. We can:
- Divert water from your home and crawl space using French Drains, both interior and exterior.
- Clean mold from walls, joists, and floors using mold cleaner and applying mold retardant.
- Seal the floor and the walls of the crawl space with double bubble poly.
- In some applications D-Bug Waterproofing installs an E-Z Breathe Ventilation system to circulate and filter the airflow from the crawl space.

Excavating Crawl Spaces
At D-Bug Waterproofing, we also excavate crawl spaces, either to create more room for ease of maintenance or to create a basement for additional storage or living space in your home.
Our professional crews have the experience and capability to not only dig out the space but also to pour cement retaining walls to support the existing foundation walls. Then a cement floor is poured for the basement.
Crawlspace repair may involve the installation of a Sump Pump to collect water entering the crawlspace from the surrounding environment. Learn more by reading our Sump Pump page and our article on Sump Pump Installation, Inspection, and Repair.
