Moisture Analysis

Indoor air with excessive moisture is a major problem in many Charleston homes, and it's also a condition that leads to mold, mildew, and fungal growth. Excessive moisture in your home can also promote termite activity, which will cause hardwood floors to cup and bucks, and it can significantly impact your home's indoor air quality. If you've discovered excess moisture in your home, or if you believe moisture is causing one of the aforementioned problems, GLS Engineering & Testing can provide you with professional moisture control services.

Humidity Control

Unfortunately, most residential and light commercial HVAC systems are designed only to maintain temperatures and not to control humidity. In many parts of the country, those types of systems are perfectly adequate, but in the Charleston area, humidity is a huge concern. If high humidity is a problem for your Charleston area home or business, GLS Engineering & Testing can help by providing you with a professional evaluation to determine sources of moisture and to develop a strategy to maintain acceptable interior humidity levels.

Crawl space

Crawl Space Moisture Inspection

Naturally ventilated crawl spaces have a habit of harboring moisture. One of the most readily visible signs of a moisture problem in the crawl space is the seasonal or year-round cupping of hardwood floors. The cupping floors may just be an indicator of a more serious issue - excessive moisture that can cause serious structural damage to your home, or worse, create mold-related health concerns for you and your family.

Cupping wood

Cupping Floors Investigation

In general, cupping is caused by a disparity between moisture above and below the floors (i.e. higher moisture below the floors than above the floors). Unfortunately, cupping is often just one sign of a more serious problem - excessive moisture in the crawl space that could cause serious structural damage to your home, or worse, create mold-related health concerns for you and your family.
