Crawl Space Encapsulation
If your crawl space is damp, smells like mold and is full of insects and critters, the best defense is to encapsulate your crawl space. Crawl Space Encapsulation is a process that promotes a healthier and more energy efficient home. The moisture in the crawl space, from the dirt floor and the foundation walls, are sealed with a heavy-duty vapor barrier (vents are sealed and the space is conditioned).
Most crawl spaces have duct systems that circulate air throughout your home. If there is mold growing, you and your family will be breathing in toxic air, which can cause serious health issues. In addition, if mold growth has rotted the floors foundation, it affects the safety of your home and will decrease your home’s value.
Insects and critters gravitate to dark, damp, dirty spaces. Encapsulating your crawl space will help prevent the infestation of unwanted guests and create a safer environment for your family.
