Crawlspaces are common places to experience problems with water damage and mold. Though the problem may originate in your crawlspace, it can impact the rest of your home because about half of your household air comes up from your crawlspace. If that air is humid or contains mold spores, it can create problems in other parts of your home. A great option for preventing these problems is to get crawlspace encapsulation.
Crawlspace encapsulation is a process that involves lining the crawlspace walls and floors, creating a water vapor barrier, and then adding a dehumidifier or taking other needed steps to control the crawlspace moisture level.
There are many benefits of crawlspace encapsulation, including:
- Preventing mold and pest damage to your home’s structure
- Improved air quality in your home and crawlspace
- Greater control of home temperature
- Greater control of home humidity level
- Improved energy efficiency in your home
A crawlspace that is too humid can lead to wet insulation, pest problems, soft or separating floors, and condensation on windows. If you have been dealing with problems like these, issues with mold, or high heating and cooling costs, you may find that crawlspace encapsulation is the perfect solution for you.
