Benefits of Crawlspace EncapsulationPublished: July 17, 2020
Have you noticed structural issues, pests, or mold in your home? If you answered yes to any of these, it might be time to consider crawlspace encapsulation. Encapsulating, or lining, your crawlspace involves installing a vapor barrier to provide several benefits including moisture control, improved indoor air quality, & pest control.
Excess moisture, especially in a crawlspace, can cause damage to your home’s foundation or structural supports. Installing a vapor barrier along with a crawlspace dehumidifier controls moisture and keeps humidity at appropriate levels. Controlling this moisture before it becomes an issue can prevent pricey structural repairs down the road.
Improved Air Quality
An added benefit of crawlspace encapsulation is mold prevention. Mold is caused by high moisture and humidity levels and can cause serious sinus and breathing issues if left unchecked. Crawlspace encapsulation eliminates and prevents mold which improves the air quality inside your home.
No one wants termites, rodents, or other pests getting into their home. Crawlspace encapsulation eliminates this problem. After encapsulation, your crawlspace is completely sealed with a liner and pests are no longer able to access your home. Liner installation not only protects your home, but also gives you peace of mind.
