What is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation is a term that refers to the process of sealing off and protecting the crawl space area beneath your home. This involves completely covering all exposed surfaces (walls, floors, joists, etc.) with an appropriate vapor barrier material, such as polyethylene plastic sheeting or sprayed-on sealant. Other techniques, such as adding insulation, sealing any cracks or gaps in the walls and flooring, and installing a dehumidifier may also be used. The goal is to create an environment that keeps out moisture, pests, and other contaminants while also allowing for proper ventilation. By controlling humidity levels with effective ventilation and reducing indoor allergens and irritants, you can create a healthier home environment and protect your structure from potential damage.
What are the Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation provides a number of benefits, including improved indoor air quality, better energy efficiency, and protection from moisture and pests.
- Improved air quality: By controlling the amount of moisture in the crawl space with appropriate sealing materials, you can reduce humidity levels and help prevent mold growth. This can improve indoor air quality by reducing allergens that can come from
- Energy Efficient: Crawl space encapsulation can also help save on energy costs by preventing cold air from entering through the crawlspace and by keeping warm air from escaping.
- Protection from moisture and pests: Crawl space encapsulation can help protect your home from moisture damage, as well as pests like rodents and insects. This process helps create a barrier between the crawlspace and the outside environment, which helps prevent any unwanted guests from entering your home.
