About Our Vapor Barriers in Spartanburg
At Crawlspace Medic®, we take vapor seriously. And with good reason. While vapor might not seem like such a big threat to your crawl space, it’s where most crawl space problems start.
Here’s what typically happens in a crawl space without a moisture barrier in place. First, moisture in the ground underneath the crawl space turns into vapor. This vapor then rises up out of the ground and enters the crawl space, where it becomes trapped. Soon, the crawl space has unhealthy moisture levels. This reduces air quality not only in the crawl space, but also the rest of the home. And if elevated moisture levels persist, the crawl space will be at high risk of dry rot, black mold, and pest infestation.
A vapor (or moisture) barrier solves this problem by blocking vapor before it has the chance to get inside your crawl space. The barrier is made out of plastic sheeting, which covers the floor of the crawl space, as well as the walls. This way, when vapor rises up from the ground, it has no way to enter your crawl space.
Crawlspace Medic® makes it easy to maintain a healthy, functioning moisture barrier in Spartanburg. To do this, we offer a mix of services, including:
- Crawl space inspections. Allowing us to check existing moisture barriers for damage, and to inspect your crawl space for signs of moisture problems.
- Vapor barrier installations. Our vapor barriers are custom designed to your specific needs and made out of 10 mil polyethylene sheeting. This sheeting is 67% thicker than the sheeting used by most installers.
- Crawl space encapsulation. In crawl spaces with severe moisture problems, we can install a crawl space encapsulation system. These systems completely seal the crawl space, including the walls and ceiling, and control moisture through a dehumidifier.
