A wet crawl space is something you don’t want under your home! Ignoring this problem can lead to humidity, flooding, nasty smells, poor air quality, and mold and mildew growth. You also risk damaging your home’s foundation. 

The first step to fixing a wet crawl space is to permanently remove moisture with a good dehumidifier. The AquaStop™ Crawl Space Air System from Groundworks does exactly that. 

What Is the AquaStop™ Crawl Space Air System? 

There are standard dehumidifiers, and then there’s AquaStop™. Specifically designed for crawl spaces, this moisture control system cleans the air, controls humidity, neutralizes musty odors, deters pests, and prevents mold and mildew. 

Our dehumidifying solution extracts up to 100 pints of water daily while circulating over 300 cubic feet of purified air every minute, making it an exceptional piece of equipment for moisture removal. As a result, you can preserve the structural stability of your home. 

In addition to our AquaStop™ system, we offer a comprehensive moisture management plan for crawl space repair. Our team can seal vents, install a sump pump, and fully encapsulate your crawl space with a vapor barrier, keeping your home in Southern Alberta safe and dry. 

Signs You Need a Dehumidifier in Your Crawl Space

A dirty crawl space.

We recommend a dehumidifier like AquaStop™ if you notice any of these problem signs in your crawl space:

  • High humidity levels
  • Mold
  • Musty odors
  • Pest infestations
  • Higher-than-usual energy bills 
  • Wood rot
  • Uneven, soft floors 
  • Condensation on ducts and pipes
  • Allergies and other health issues

These problem signs indicate excessive moisture in your crawl space —something you should address sooner rather than later! Quick action prevents further damage to your home and expensive repair bills. 

Is a Crawl Space Dehumidifier Necessary? 

We believe so! Without one, moisture and humidity can harm your crawl space, leading to serious concerns like structural decay. 

Off-the-shelf dehumidifiers don’t have enough capacity or strength to keep a crawl space dry, meaning moisture will continue to spread through this area and cause ongoing damage. That’s why we recommend a professional dehumidification system designed for crawl spaces like AquaStop™.
