How can you get rid of mold smell in a crawlspace?

Mold thrives in an area where there is moisture and a "food source" such as wood or other organic material. Encapsulation and dehumidification are the key elements to prevent the production of mold and the odor that it produces. By traping out the moisture on the walls and floors and adding a SaniDry dehumidifier to take care of any additional moisture in the air or other materials that are causing the mold odor. 

How can you improve your home's efficiency?

If you have cold floors or a draft in your home, then your basement or crawlspace is probably lacking insulation. The traditional fiberglass insulation doesn't provide the kind of results needed to stay warm in New England. 

Northern Basement Systems offers Closed-Cell Polyurethane Spray Foam to give you the high R-value in your basement or crawlspace that you're looking for! Our closed-cell spray foam provides an R-value of 6-7 per inch, while also preventing air or moisture from entering the basement.

Is my home settling/sinking?

There are many signs to check for if you're concerned about your home's foundation. Common signs include cracks in the walls and/ or floors of both the basement and sheetrock.

Have you noticed that your windows and doors are sticking or are becoming harder to open or shut? If your answer is "yes", then your home is likely experiencing some settling. 

Typically, settling doesn't happen evenly across the foundation with makes the foundation and floors in the home unlevel, and overtime, if these issues are not addressed then it can lead to foundation failure. 

Thankfully, Northern Basement Systems has several longterm foundation repair solutions that can prevent the progression of foundation failure. the first step to repairing your home's foundation is to give us a call at 855-DRY-TIME and set up your FREE estimate with a specialist at Northern Basement Systems!

Why are my floors cold?

Cold floors are generally caused by a lack of insulation in the basement or crawlspace below your home. The cold air will enter through the rim joist area, flooring or walls of the space and rising though the floors and making your home cold and inefficient. 

The best solution to cold floors is adding insulation or replacing old inefficient fiberglass insulation with closed-cell fiberglass insulation or other waterproof insulations.

Call 855-DRY-TIME to find the right solution for your basement or crawlspace to keep your home warm through the coldest months AND lower your heating costs!
