Crawlspace Encapsulation

Examination of crawlspaces is essential when considering the overall health of a home. For homes built on a crawlspace, studies show up to 50% of the air you breathe in your home actually comes from the crawlspace. When poorly constructed, and particularly when moisture problems exist, they can create a disaster for your home's Indoor Air Quality and even compromise the structural integrity of the home.

Moisture is the greatest enemy to any home. Because crawlspaces so commonly have moisture problems, these spaces become a breeding ground for mold (not to mention pests and rodents). Crawlspaces have been incorrectly built for decades. Venting crawlspaces in a hot humid climate is a bad idea; this allows moisture laden air to enter the crawlspace preventing you from managing moisture within the home.

The proper solution is to seal the crawlspace, AKA Crawlspace Encapsulation. When kept sealed and maintained properly, a homeowner can more effectively:

  • Manage moisture within the home
  • Prevent Mold
  • Improve Indoor Air Quality
  • Reduce Pest Infestation
  • Lower Energy Costs

Benefits of Crawlspace Encapsulation

Reduce Moisture

Prevent water damage and mold metabolizing organic materials, like wood framing.

Energy Efficiency

Crawlspace Encapsulation helps control the temperature within a crawlspace, reducing the load on HVAC equipment.

Controls Pests

Vented crawlspaces provide the ideal environment for the infestation of pests, which are damp, dark, and cool spaces.

Better Indoor Air Quality

Reduces odors as well as mold spores and other allergens in the home.
