What is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

What is crawl space encapsulation?

Crawl space encapsulation is a method of sealing the crawl space from outside air and ground moisture. This stops moisture and condensation from deteriorating your home and causing other problems such as mold, mildew, fungus, and other airborne toxins from entering your crawl space and home.

What Causes Crawl Space Issues?

What is crawl space encapsulation?

Moisture and condensation develop when the hot, humid outdoor air is drawn into the cool air of the crawl space, vents, ducts, and other leaks in the crawl space and home. Moisture may also continuously come from just a few inches below the seemingly dry dirt or soil ground of your crawlspace. This humid air flows upward from the lowest point of your home, and if left untreated, will eventually cause damage to your home. Also, any resulting mold, mildew, and fungus may cause health problems for you and your family.

Symptoms of Moisture Damage in Your Crawl Space

What is crawl space encapsulation?

Over time, moisture will cause the following damage to occur:

  • Rising moisture content in wood joists
  • Dry rot and cracked wood
  • Mold and/or mildew formation on the wood in the crawlspace
  • Mold, mildew, and fungus will infiltrate the home living area through cracks
  • Duct insulation deterioration. Older ductwork will foster more mold and mildew

Issues will get worse until you are forced to spray to kill the fungus, mold, or mildew problems, re-wrap the duct insulation, and repair or replace the damaged floor joists. This will cost thousands of dollars and will not solve your underlying moisture control problems.

Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

What is crawl space encapsulation?

Besides maintaining the structural integrity of your home, crawl space encapsulation properly seals moisture and condensation from entering your home, which means you and your family will be breathing cleaner, safer air. It’s believed that almost 50% of the air we breath on the first floor of our home rises from the crawl space. That means the mold spores, mildew, fungus, dust, bug and animal excrements, and anything else airborne will eventually rise into you home’s air and into your lungs. Exposure to these toxins are often confused with new or increased allergy-like symptoms. Crawl space encapsulation is the best way to prevent this from happening again or at all, and will help make your home a healthier living space.
