Approximately 50% of the air in your home comes from the crawl space, so you want to make sure it’s in good condition. That’s exactly what crawl space encapsulation does! We seal off the area underneath your home to keep moisture away from the subfloor and joists. This prevents mold and mildew from forming and then circulating around your home.

When it comes to moisture in your crawl space, don’t take any chances. At Elite Moisture Solutions, we take a thorough approach to crawl space encapsulation. We start with a comprehensive evaluation of the space to diagnose any existing issues. Our team will collect humidity and moisture samples throughout the area to get a complete understanding of the severity of the problem. We’ll also inspect the foundation for any cracks or other concerns that could compromise the encapsulation.

Once we’ve identified the issues at hand, we’ll take action to create a vacuum within the space before removing moisture-damaged materials. And rest assured, we won’t leave you hanging – our team will conduct a follow-up to ensure that the encapsulation is working as intended. Give us a call to protect your home from moisture issues today!

Risks Of An Unsealed Crawl Space

Your home’s crawl space is often overlooked, but it’s essential to ensure it’s properly sealed. In North Carolina, an unsealed crawl space can lead to various issues. Investing in sealing your crawl space is crucial to maintaining your home’s condition and keeping your family safe and healthy.


It may seem like a small thing, but leaving your crawlspace unsealed can cause serious problems. Mold, which can be extremely harmful to your health, thrives in damp and humid environments, and an unsealed crawlspace provides the perfect breeding ground.


Mold isn’t the only issue – warm air from the crawlspace can easily make its way into your home, carrying with it dust, odors, and allergens. High moisture and humidity can also cause wood rot and other damage to the materials in your home. Insects and pests love warm and humid environments, so an unsealed crawlspace can quickly become a breeding ground for them too.

Increased Energy Bills

All of these issues can cause damage to your HVAC ductwork, plumbing, water heaters, and insulation, leading to increased energy bills and uncomfortable temperatures in your home. So make sure to seal your crawlspace to avoid these problems.

The Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

Improved Air Quality in Home

Since a majority of the air in our homes originate in the crawlspace, it is important to have a clean and healthy space under your home. An encapsulation provides a barrier between the inside of your home and the outside environment which means in wet environments it keeps out moisture and mold and in dry environments it keeps out dust and dust mites. In all cases, it provides a healthier living space for you and your family!

Elimination of Mold Producing Environment

Mold requires a source of moisture to thrive. A crawlspace encapsulation system includes the sealing of all cracks and vents, the installation of a vapor barrier on the floor and all walls as well as the installation of a dehumidifier. All of these things together ensure all possible moisture sources have been removed and mold cannot develop in your crawlspace.

Avoid Structural Damage from Moisture

By removing all sources of moisture, a crawlspace encapsulation removes the risk of water damaged wood and wood rot. Damaged wood can compromise the structural integrity of your home and the safety of your family.

Increase Energy Efficiency

Crawlspace encapsulations have been shown to reduce individual energy bills by as much as 15% per year! The encapsulation system serves also as a form of insulation and can help improve your homes energy efficiency.

Our Crawl Space Encapsulation Process

Encapsulations are used to prevent moisture and humidity from entering your crawlspace by using a vapor barrier system, insulation and sealing all vents. Comprehensive crawlspace encapsulation encompasses a 4 stage process:

Clear Out Debris

The technicians start by clearing out all debris which includes moisture affected insulation, obsolete or deteriorated vapor barriers, and any trash that may be in the crawl space.

Remove Mold

Next and most importantly, we then physically remove ALL visible mold from the crawl space followed by a preventative fogging of all exposed wood members to prevent future fungal growth. We perform this treatment with every encapsulation to ensure that we aren’t sealing any mold spores into the crawl space. If we do not perform this preventative treatment, the mold spores would eventually make their way up into the living areas through stack effect.

Install Liners, Insulation & Vents

The Elite Moisture Solutions team would first seal off all the crawl space vents. Then, they would install a reinforced crawlspace liner on the ground and up all of the walls. The team will also apply the reinforced liner to all of the crawl space piers. Next, the technicians would install a Prodex insulation over the wall liner creating a strong barrier between your crawlspace and the outside elements.

Install Dehumidifier

Once the crawl space is fully sealed, we will install a permanent dehumidifier which will continuously regulate the space and ensure the average humidity level stays around 55%.


Once your crawl space has been encapsulated, you still have to keep the humidity level low. Ways to do this include making sure your foundation is insulated, improving drainage on your property, keeping vents closed, and installing a dehumidifier. The dehumidifier is the most efficient way to prevent humid air from building up and we can install one while performing a crawl space encapsulation.

The company installed a vapor guard and dehumidifier in my crawl space under the house. They pulled some junk I had under the house and coordinated the pick-up for me. They also tore down the old insulation which was falling down and had new insulation installed. They did an excellent job and were very professional. I highly recommend them to anyone.

I had a gentleman show up to inspect a mold issue. He was very professional, on time, courteous, and helpful. We had a bit of a precarious problem (a dead cat was found in our crawl space) and he handled it professionally and privately to not disturb the kids. The man deserves an award! Thanks for all that you do!
