Moisture Control with Crawl Space Encapsulation
Damaged, molding, or pest-infested crawl spaces can decrease your home’s energy efficiency, create foul odors and even risk the structural integrity of your home.
Damaging Long-Term Effects of Moisture
It can be easy to think “out of sight-out of mind” with a crawl space. But allowing your crawl space to deteriorate can have damaging long-term effects.
Ensuring a crawl space is in good condition can prevent extensive repairs and save you money.
Vented crawl spaces are especially susceptible to excess moisture problems that can cause mold growth, wood rot, and foul smells. Additionally, pest infestations could spread to the rest of the house.
High humidity creates ideal living conditions for many insects which will take residence in a deteriorated crawl space. Excessive moisture in a crawl space is caused by inadequate drainage, plumbing leaks, or water evaporating from the exposed soil floor.
Prevent Moisture Damage with Crawl Space Encapsulation
The best way to prevent moisture damage in a crawl space is through crawl space encapsulation.
Crawl space encapsulation creates a vapor barrier between the soil floor, the pipes, and the walls, completely keeping out unwanted moisture as well as saving energy.
Depending on the conditions of your crawl space, debris will be removed and the ground will be leveled before the liner is installed. The liner not only blocks out moisture completely but can also allow you to turn the crawl space into a great storage space.
