Mold & Moisture Solutions
Moisture in the home creates undesirable conditions causing damage that's costly to repair. Crawl Space Encapsulation, Vapor Barriers, along with the installation of a Humidex system (or Drytrak) from Gladhill Services helps prevent and control moisture and humidity levels in the crawl space and basement of your home.
A reinforced liner is installed by our team to cover the entire ground, foundation walls, and support piers of your crawl space to limit moisture levels coming up from the ground. If you combine our encapsulation service with the installation of a Humidex system (backed by a warranty) we can also begin controlling the humidity levels in your home as this system begins pulling air down for adequate circulation. With a Humidex installed, you can forget about ever emptying your dehumidifier again!
Like encapsulation, a vapor barrier installed in your crawlspace is a liner that prevents the transfer of moisture from the ground up into the home or structure. While encapsulation covers the ground, foundation walls and support piers, a vapor barrier only covers the ground. Vapor barriers work well in areas where moisture is a minor issue only. When a vapor barrier is combined with a Humidex system, again, we can now control not only moisture but, the humidity level within the structure as well.
The purpose of insulation in an attic, basement or crawlspace is to help maintain your desired temperature within the home while using the least amount of energy possible. Our insulation replacement service helps lower your annual heating and cooling costs. We can install over existing insulation or replace the old insulation with new. Replacement is always recommended during mold remediation due to spores getting behind the existing insulation.
The Humidex reduces condensation by detecting when an AC system is present, then helps improve its efficiency. Once installed, the Humidex is effortless to maintain and you'll never have to empty your dehumidifier again. The Humidex silently blows dust, moisture and other allergens in the air directly out of your home through its own vent improving air quality.
Compatible with all wall and foundation types, DryTrak is designed to remove water from floor and wall joints, directing its flow to a sump pump or drain. DryTrak is an effective tool that not only redirects water but, prevents it from becoming a problem to begin with. And, unlike french drains, DryTrak will never clog, destroy your landscape or, require drilling of any kind for installation.
