A plastic moisture barrier / vapor barrier in the crawl space helps prevent ground water from evaporating into the structure. It is important to keep the crawl space dry.
Damp and wet crawlspace is conducive to mold, mildew, wood decay / rot and termites. A properly installed moisture barrier will help stop one of the moisture sources threat can attack your home “ground water evaporation”.
D & D Pest Control Co. provides Crawlspace Moisture Control and crawlspace evaluations in the Kinston, North Carolina and Greater Lenoir County area.
North Carolina Building Code:
R408.2 Ground vapor retarder. A minimum 6-mil (0.15 mm) polyethylene vapor retarder or equivalent shall be installed to nominally cover all exposed earth in the crawl space, with joints lapped not less than 12 inches. Where there is no evidence that the groundwater table can rise to within 6 inches (152 mm) of the floor of the crawl space, it is acceptable to puncture the ground vapor retarder at low spots to prevent water puddles from forming on top of the vapor retarder due to condensation. Install a drain to daylight or sump pump at each low spot. Crawl space drains shall be kept separate from roof gutter drain systems and foundation perimeter drains.
At 90 pints per day, the Watchdog 900 is the largest crawl space dehumidifier in the D & D Pest Control Co lineup. The 900 produces a 370 CFM airflow at 2.8 L/kWh making it powerful enough for areas up to 15,000 cubic feet.
With upgrades like a built in humidistat, and temperature controlled defrost, maintaining the humidity in your home is simple with the help of a Watchdog 900.
