A typical crawlspace can take up as much as 50 percent of air in your house. Indoor air quality can dip significantly when a crawlspace is dirty and not properly maintained.

 

Untreated crawl spaces can become a breeding ground for mold, bacteria and pests, among others. They’re often neglected, which causes them to be humid. Soon, that humidity turns into bad odor, causes wood to rot and creates unwanted mold growth.

 

Fortunately, there are obvious signs that a crawlspace is contaminated and needs cleaning. Rancid odors seeping from below, as well as telltale wet growth can mean that your crawl space needs a thorough cleaning from professionals.

Our professional staff are fully bonded, insured and licensed to carry out crawlspace encapsulation and cleaning. Call us for an inspection and discover how you can protect your home from the ground up.

Encapsulation is a term used to seal crawlspaces. It’s one of the best and most popular forms of protection against excessive indoor moisture and the many problems it produces. It’s similar to what’s done in a swimming pool to stop the water from leaking out.

 

Attic technicians make use of a barrier made from heavy duty polyethylene to cover the crawlspace floor, foundation wall and ceiling.

A barrier works best if it covers the whole crawlspace. Reputable companies not only apply barriers but connect and put them in place using sealing tape. Afterwards, a dehumidifier can prevent moisture levels from getting out of hand.

The presence of mildew, bacteria and mold can affect air quality negatively. When ‘bad’ air rises it gets absorbed by your home’s walls, flooring and ceiling.

 

The contaminants can be harmful and even deadly when exposure is done for a long time. A thorough cleaning and encapsulation ensures a dry crawlspace which equals better air quality.

 

Encapsulation seals your home’s crawlspace and prevents the trigger of respiratory issues such as asthma and allergies.

Encapsulation is a form of pest control, since the barrier effectively stops insects such as termites from making their nest underneath your home.

Some encapsulation barriers have anti-pest properties as well as protect your house from mold and excessive moisture.

Cool and warm air can escape through crawlspaces and result in your HVAC working harder than intended. This can bring up energy costs and subsequently, your electric bill.

 

Encapsulating your crawl space minimizes the hot or cool air from escaping easily and serves as an excellent home investment. You enjoy lower energy bills and your HVAC can cool or heat efficiently.

Water damage equals a compromised house structure, which should be avoided at all costs. Unfortunately, weather and other forms of natural disasters can make it difficult to stop this from happening, but with encapsulation you can have a barrier in place.

 

Encapsulation also keeps out termites that can eat away at your home’s foundation. At first glance encapsulation services may be expensive but it’s well worth it in the end.

Last but not least, getting your crawl space encapsulated improves living conditions in several aspects. Your home temperature won’t fluctuate to extremes as much and air quality will be improved. Lower energy bill and the absence of pests such as termites make your house more comfortable to live in.

Crawl space encapsulation isn’t something that’s done casually or overnight. It involves technical knowledge on how to install the right barrier, and sealing methods to ensure moisture is kept out of your home.
