Moisture Control Kansas City, MO

Moisture control is a service that any property owner with an attic, basement, or crawl space to worry about should get, and there's no source more trustworthy than AdvantaClean. We're located in Kansas City, KS, and we have effective treatments for dealing with attic moisture and moisture in crawl spaces and basements. Our company is the local branch of a nationwide franchise that has been around for more than 20 years.

Since moisture control can also cover services like mold removal and remediation, we expect some customers to take advantage of our 24-hour emergency line. However, if you want to take steps to prevent mold growth, it's easier to schedule an appointment.

Attic Ventilation

MOISTURE IN ATTICS

Attics are notorious for their poor ventilation, their clutter, and their vulnerability to rain and other elements. Attic moisture usually rises from your bathroom, kitchen, or dryer, and since nothing can be done about the source, you'll want us to add attic ventilation when it comes to moisture control. The general rule is to have 1 square foot of ventilation for every 300 square feet of ceiling space. While following this rule, we'll create an enhanced ventilation system that utilizes both roof vents and soffit vents.

We can also encapsulate any structures, especially those made of softwood, that are at risk for mold. Our team can look for dark stains, rust, buckled roof sheathing, and other signs of this fungus. To be extra careful, we can install a dehumidifier, which will run when humidity levels exceed the point we want it

BASEMENT WATERPROOFING

Basement Dehumidifier

Unlike moisture in attics, moisture in this area is often high due to seepage and water leaks, not poor ventilation. You have several options regarding moisture control, however. The first is to waterproof the basement entirely. There are cost-effective waterproofing paints out there that you can apply on your walls yourself, but these crack and peel over time. AdvantaClean offers concrete sealants for your concrete and masonry walls; these will create a solid barrier against moisture with none of the disadvantages of waterproofing paint. In fact, you'll be able to paint over the sealant without compromising its integrity. To install these, we'll first have to seal up any cracks in your walls.

Another moisture control treatment involves what's called encapsulation. Our team will seal your surfaces with a vapor barrier, a plastic membrane that will prevent moisture from getting in or out. We can also advise you on things like repairing leaky basement windows to prevent surface runoff from invading your basement, repairing leaky pipes, and getting a sump pump to avoid flooding under the foundation.

CRAWL SPACE ENCAPSULATION

Crawl Space Encapsulation Before and After

Another moisture control treatment involves what's called crawl space encapsulation. Our team will seal your surfaces with a vapor barrier, a plastic membrane that will prevent moisture from getting in or out. We can also advise you on things like repairing leaky pipes to prevent runoff from invading your crawl space, and getting a sump pump to avoid flooding under the foundation.

We can also encapsulate any structures, especially those made of softwood, that are at risk for mold. Our team can look for dark stains, rust, buckled roof sheathing, and other signs of this fungus. To be extra careful, we can install a dehumidifier, which will run when humidity levels exceed the point we want it at.
