6 Benefits of Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing

It’s the beginning of Spooky Season and on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and in Anne Arundel County, basements and crawl spaces have their own unique spectors. Is your basement haunted by the ghosts of mildew passed? When you open your moist crawl space, does a shiver go down your spine? Yeah, that’s because it’s cold and gross. And it could be making the rest of your house cold and gross. 


Don’t worry, Total Home Performance can help you upgrade your home by encapsulating your crawl space or waterproofing your basement. By focusing on crawl space or basement moisture removal, we can help improve comfort and air quality throughout your entire home. 

1. Healthier Indoor Air 

Moisture almost always leads to mold and mildew growth, which are terrible for your indoor air quality. By implementing basement moisture mitigation techniques like basement vapor barrier installation, you can reduce the risk of mold growth, improving indoor air quality and wellness throughout your whole home.

2. Less Risk of Flood Damage 

Waterproofing your basement or crawl space will help you prepare your home for heavy rainfall and prevent the risk of flooding, which can cause serious and expensive damage to your home. 

3. Better Comfort 

Basement and crawl space waterproofing projects typically include insulation installation. Adding basement insulation or crawl space insulation will help keep indoor temperatures consistent and lead to better comfort in your living spaces. 

4. Potential Energy Bill Savings 

Basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation will help reduce energy loss in your home, which will likely lead to lower heating and cooling costs. 

5. Higher Home Value 

Basement and crawl space waterproofing make your house safer, healthier, and more comfortable, all of which are enticing to a homebuyer. Work like this can increase the value of your home and help you get more from the sale if you ever decide to move. 

6. Peace of Mind 

One of the greatest benefits of installing a waterproofing system in your basement or crawl space is peace of mind. Making sure your home’s lower level is protected against flooding, water damage, and mold growth can alleviate major concerns about your home and help you sleep a little easier at night.
