Hillsborough is a beautiful Research Triangle Park Suburb located west of Durham in Orange County, NC. Hillsborough has become a beloved town in the Triangle and continues to gain popularity due to the quintessential small town feel that it exudes. It is also home to an adorable historic district downtown that features more than 100 homes and buildings that were built in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Established in 1754, Hillsborough is now home to over 7,000 residents and more than 2,700 homes ranging in age from the beautiful historic homes to brand new construction. A large majority of homes in Hillsborough are built on a basement or crawlspace. This is important, especially with older homes, because homes with unkempt crawlspaces or basements are more likely to have issues related to mold or moisture. Elite Moisture Solutions offers free visual inspections of your home and crawlspace/basement and can advise you on how to best protect your property!

Crawlspace Encapsulation

crawlspace encapsulation in Hillsborough

Your home’s crawl space is an environment that tends to be prone to flooding and excess moisture. Over time, elevated moisture levels can cause mold growth, pest/rodent infestation, and deterioration of your insulation, ductwork, and HVAC equipment. Crawl space encapsulation systems are specifically designed to prevent things like moisture, high humidity, wood rot and mold from damaging your home and causing unhealthy living conditions.

An Elite Moisture Solution inspector can provide you with a free consultation and will inspect your property to determine what needs, if any, you may have in your crawl space. If anything is found, they will provide you with a custom-built plan for sealing your crawlspace and will suggest measures that can be taken to ensure that will protect your home and crawlspace for years to come.

Top Reasons to Encapsulate Your Crawl Space

  • Aids with improving indoor air quality of home

  • Eliminates mold growth potential

  • Provides increased insulation which makes your home more energy efficient

  • Increases crawl space equipement lifespan (water heater, HVAC, plumbing, etc)

  • Prevents wood rot to structural wood beams and subflooring

  • Improves your home’s resale value and marketability

  • Adds a pest barrier to reduce chance for infestations

  • Provides additional conditioned storage space

What makes Our Encapsulation Different

  • We provide a Lifetime Warranty

    This is why more customers choose Elite Moisture Solutions. It provides peace of mind that the encapsulation will last for many years.

  • We use high quality reinforced liners

    They are much more durable, so they last longer than regular liners/barriers

  • We add insulation to the walls of the crawl space

    This adds another layer of insulation to further seal your crawl space

  • We remove all mold that is found within the crawlspace

    It is not enough to just seal the crawlspace and hope the mold will die. (dead mold can still produce spores)

  • We replace insulation that is destroyed

    Replacing damaged or fallen insulation will ensure your home can be as energy efficient as possible

  • We seal off all vents, cracks, gaps and openings

    We do this to prevent exterior moisture from seeping in

  • We install French drains and sump pumps when needed

    If your crawl space is prone to flooding then it’s important to have a way to pump it out and divert it away from your home

  • We install a dehumidifier

    This lowers moisture and humidity levels

  • We remove all debris and standing water from the crawlspace


Mold growth inside of your home can wreak havoc on people with bad allergies and respiratory issues. This is why it’s important to have your home tested for mold if you have had any problems with flooding, leaks, or any types of moisture buildup. A mold air test will measure if mold is present, what type of mold is found, the amount/concentration that is found and the level of toxicity. If elevated mold spore counts are found, it is important to have the home remediated as soon as possible.

The certified mold remediation professionals at Elite Moisture Solutions have excellent testing equipment that can detect mold in your home, and if needed, can perform a comprehensive mold removal service that will eliminate the mold and make your home healthy again.
