The Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation
It’s easy to overlook your crawl space, but the consequences can be serious.
If moisture levels are too high, mold, pests, and other pollutants can thrive. Encapsulation is a solution designed to control the level of moisture in your crawl space. The process involves sealing the floor and walls with thick plastic sheets which block water vapor. Once the crawl space is sealed, a dehumidifier is placed in the area to make sure moisture levels remain stable.
Once encapsulated, your crawl space will act as an insulator and help to maintain temperature levels in your home, thus lowering energy costs. The regulated moisture levels will prevent mold spores from spreading and will prevent termite and other pest infestations that could potentially cause massive structural damage.
