What is Crawl Space Drainage Matting?
Crawl space drainage matting, an essential component in moisture control, is a durable, dimpled mat installed beneath your home. This robust polyethylene mat efficiently guides water to an interior perimeter drainage system, proving pivotal in managing water and preserving your home’s health.
Drainage matting works best when combined with encapsulation and dehumidification. These systems form an all-encompassing solution that resolves existing water issues and prevents new ones, safeguarding your home’s structure and air quality. When used under a vapor barrier, the matting also reinforces the floor, making it more accessible for storage and maneuvering.

Your crawl space and home could benefit from drainage matting if you notice:
- Standing or flooding water in the crawl space
- Condensation on pipes and ductwork
- Damp insulation
- Mold growth
- Pest infestations
- Musty odors
- High energy bills
- High indoor humidity
- Rotting wooden crawl space structures
- Sagging floors
