Denver Crawl Space Repair
Dealing with a wet, musty, damp crawl space in your Denver home is zero fun. However, the alternative of letting the problem fester can be far, far worse. Although most homeowners are blissfully unaware of the importance of their crawl space, it plays an important role in the structural integrity of your home.
Your crawl space connects your home to the foundation, and when it suffers, your safety could be at risk. The soil in Denver is clay loam; this means a dirt crawl space absorbs water easily, releasing moisture into the air causing high humidity, mold growth, and musty odors. Left untreated, these moisture-related problems can lead to wood rot, weakening your home’s support structures and putting your safety at risk.
Thanks to the stack effect, your crawl space is responsible for up to 50 percent of the air circulating through your home. This means any mold spores, dirt, dust, or pest droppings make their way through your home and into the air you and your family breathe.
Crawl space encapsulation from Groundworks seals out these potentially toxic elements using a high-quality vapor barrier and addressing water with proper drainage and a sump pump. Schedule your free crawl space inspection to learn more about the innovative solutions offered by Groundwork Denver.

What Causes Crawl Space Repair Problems?
A crawl space is a place most homeowners never go. It’s damp, dirty, and all-around uncomfortable. Although this out of sight, out of mind mentality is understandable, when it comes to your crawl space, it simply can’t be ignored—especially in Denver.
Crawl space problems result from the area’s clay loam soil type and the weather. Although Denver receives only 15 to 20 inches of rain annually, well below the national average, add snowmelt totals, and the ground surrounding your home can become very wet.
This moisture is absorbed by the clay soil easily. If you have an untreated crawl space without a waterproofing measure, you are susceptible to water or moisture damage. Inside the crawl space, look for signs of mold and mildew, sagging insulation, and wood rot. Upstairs in the living spaces, you may feel spongey floors under your feet, see uneven floors or notice gaps between the floor and baseboards. These are all signs of a crawl space problem that should be repaired soon. Any damage in your crawl space will eventually extend to the rest of your home.
To avoid additional costs, schedule a free inspection with Groundworks. Their inspectors work with you to design a custom-fit solution to address your home’s unique needs. With more than 20 years of experience working in the Denver area, their knowledge of the soil and weather conditions makes them an expert on stopping crawl space damage permanently.

Crawl Space Drain
The number one reason for damage in a crawl space is water or moisture. An interior drain system installed around the edges of your crawl space helps avoid any standing water due to Denver’s clay loam soil. The drain effectively removes water by directing it to a sump pump, where it is pumped out and away from the home. Removing the water quickly and effectively keeps the crawl space’s moisture content low—discouraging harmful mildew and mold growth.
Although your home may have an existing vapor barrier, it is most likely a builder’s grade 6-mil liner. This liner tears easily and can be more of a problem since it is not sealed. As an organic material, mold can quickly grow on it. Groundworks installs a high-quality, 20-mil thick vapor barrier that resists rips and tears. The liner seals to the walls and floor, locking out moisture, mold, and humidity, improving the air quality throughout the home.
A quality vapor barrier stops mold growth, helps rebuff pests, and generally makes your home a more comfortable and healthy environment.
Crawl Space Dehumidifier
Depending on the amount of moisture your home struggles with, you may or may not need a crawl space dehumidifier. When it comes to a dehumidifier, it’s best to do your research. Often the hardware store units aren’t strong enough to remove the moisture needed in a crawl space. Most big-box units will leave you with a high energy bill and nothing to show for it.
Groundworks’ crawl space dehumidifier is energy-efficient, self-draining, and can remove up to 100 pints of water per day and filter up to 280 cubic feet per minute. In a crawl space that is infrequently visited, reliability is key to maintaining a healthy crawl space. Trust the experts.
