There are three things that destroy materials in general (wood in particular): water, heat, and ultraviolet radiation. Of these, water is by far the most important.
A dirt, vented or unconditioned concrete crawl space under a home in Connecticut is a very bad idea. The earth has very high humidity in the soil.
This water vapor moves easily into the crawl space and upwards into the home environment.
Damp environments are unhealthy and destructive ... a place where mold thrives and spreads by producing millions of airborne spores - a rare few of which are even toxic - and heating and cooling costs are higher, especially if you have a vented dirt crawl space.
Insects and critters of all kinds love damp environments and wet materials. Rot and decay occur in damp environments causing structural damage.

How air moves in and out of
The natural airflow in a house is from bottom to top. This sucks the moist air and everything in it up into the living areas of the home. Mold spores, odors, humidity and critters create a very unhealthy environment for people.
Many people are allergic to these things, and experience a host of symptoms and don't realize that their dirt crawl space is affecting their health.
Now there is a solution to dirt crawl spaces - The CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System - developed by Basement Systems, the world leader in dry basement and crawl space technology.
See what a difference a dry
The CleanSpace crawl space system isolates a home from the earth, reducing the relative humidity level in the air. Lower humidity levels reduce or, in some cases, eliminate mold growth, rot, and critters from your crawl space, making the entire house healthier. The crawl space liner is a heavy 20-mil-thick material, similar to a pool liner, although CleanSpace acts to keep out water and air. It is made in seven layers - a blend of high-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene, and two layers of polyester-cord reinforcement. The liner is blue on one side and white on the other. The bright white side is placed upward and really brightens a crawl space with the available lighting, allowing for easy inspection and reassurance that your crawl space is free of mold, insects, and dirt.
The CleanSpace liner is tough enough on which to crawl and store items on -- giving a home extra storage space. Service people can crawl on it without worry of putting holes or tears in the liner -- and they'll love you for it! The liner completely stops moisture penetration through it.
Connecticut Basement Systems is the only crawl space waterproofing company in CT and Westchester County, NY to install a specially-designed crawl space sump pump - the SmartSump crawl space sump pump system. This patented system works in conjunction with the CleanSpace system, pumping out water beneath the liner, and is also smart enough to alert you to interior plumbing leaks, which could go unseen for years in a crawl space.
