A suburban municipality, Highland Park in Lake County, Illinois is located north of Chicago and is part of the Chicago metropolitan area. It shares the extreme weather conditions the Windy City is known for, freezing winters and scorching summers with thunderstorms common during spring and summer. During wet weather, many residents can experience moisture issues in their crawl spaces, which can be a problem. Water in crawl spaces can cause numerous problems both for your home and health. It can cause rot in wooden posts, ruin the foundation, cause musty smells, and foster the growth of mildew and mold – which can cause health issues.
Solutions to Crawl Space Moisture
If your crawl space is suffering from moisture issues, it’s time to call a Perma-Seal professional and have encapsulation work done.
Basically, crawl space encapsulation is when the area below your home is made waterproof – encased, if you will – in a waterproof vapor barrier that would prevent moisture from seeping in. Calling a professional in will also ensure that any other problems you might have that are not yet apparent will be seen and addressed, as well.
Benefits to Highland Park Homeowners
