Crawl space encapsulation is a sealing treatment supported by structural engineers, that turns your dirty, damp and moldy crawl space into a dry, clean space that can’t be penetrated by pests, the elements or grow mold. Many homes built on crawl space foundations have moisture problems, especially those in the southeast United States, which makes installing crawl space encapsulation.
Although damp crawl spaces don’t just cause issues below ground, this is where they begin. Mold, mildew and bacteria are often found in crawl spaces and make breathing conditions poor by significantly impacting the air quality. While this may not seem like a problem if you assume that this poor air quality remains in the basement or crawl space, this is not the case as air rises and seeps into the rest of your home. Moisture and vapor that forms in the basement can also rot wood frames and floorings that form the key structures of your house. Crawl space encapsulation doesn’t just keep water out, though — another advantage of this crawl space solution is that termites and other pests are also kept out of the home. And we all know what a burden removing pests like invasive termites is. You can count on saving on energy costs as well, as cool air won’t escape in the summer and heat won’t escape in the winter months.
This means the floors, foundation walls and possibly even the ceiling will be coated. The encapsulation material used in crawl space encapsulation to that of a swimming pool liner. The barrier of this crawl space solution works best when your home’s crawl space is covered completely and sealing tape is used to connect the barrier’s pieces throughout the space. Once our team has sealed the space with crawl space encapsulation, a dehumidifier helps to regulate the crawl space’s moisture levels.
