Crawlspace Encapsulation

crawlspace encapsulation in Chapel Hill

Majority of homes in North Carolina have been built on a crawlspace as they were less expensive than a basement but still provided access to the major systems (plumbing, electric, HVAC) that is under the house. The trouble is that crawlspaces are the perfect environment for mold to grow and thrive as they are dark and typically damp. Crawl space encapsulation systems have been designed to solve this problem as they are built to keep moisture out and condition the space under your home.

Our team of experts can provide you with a free crawlspace evaluation and estimate which will help you determine if your crawlspace is safe and, in turn, if your home is healthy. We provide high quality crawl space systems as well as timely service. Unsure if encapsulating your crawlspace is right for you? Give us a call and we can provide you a free, no obligation inspection and estimate!

Benefits of Encapsulating Your Crawl Space

  • Eliminates factors that contribute to mold growth
  • Increases lifespan of equipment under your home (water heater, plumbing, HVAC units, etc.)
  • Improves indoor air quality
  • Prevents wood rot to subflooring and structural wood beams
  • Provides increased insulation so your home is more energy efficient
  • Improves your home’s resale value and marketability
  • Reduces potential for pest infestations
  • Provides additional clean and conditioned storage space

Why Our Encapsulation is Different

  • We remove standing water and debris from the crawlspace

    Every crawl space encapsulation starts with clearing out old debris and water that leads to mold

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

    This prevents moisture from getting into your crawl space

  • We perfom mold remediation to remove any existing mold

    It’s important to remove any sign of mold, since even mold that appears to be dead can still produce spores

  • We replace destroyed insulation

    Damaged or fallen insulation should be replaced to ensure your home and space as energy efficient as possible

  • We install sump pumps or French drains when needed

    Some crawl spaces are prone to flooding, so it’s important to divert water away from accumulating under your home

  • We use reinforced liners

    Reinforced liners are much more durable and last longer than just regular liners / vapor barriers

  • We add insulation to the walls

    Crawl space wall insulation adds another layer of control / conditioning

  • We install a dehumidifier

    Dehumidifiers decrease levels of moisture and humidity in your crawl space which can prevent mold

  • We provide a Lifetime Warranty

    We stand behind the level of quality we provide with a Lifetime Warranty

Mold Remediation

Mold is very often found as a result of leaks that homeowners encounter as plumbing and hot water heaters fail and roofs that need to be repaired, but there are often times where a strong musty odor is noticed in the crawlspace. Although sudden water damage can cause mold issues, more often than not the crawlspace is the primary culprit of the most cases of mold. Many homeowners will put off investigating whether or not they have mold because of the expense involved for mold remediation, but testing for mold should be done immediately since it can cause extensive damage to the structure of a home as well as cause health issues for those with respiratory problems.

The experts at Elite Moisture Solutions understands how important it is to make sure homeowners can quickly and affordably determine if they need mold removal services for their home by providing free visual inspections, affordable mold testing options, and same day quotes so action can be taken if mold is visibly present. As part of the services that Elite offers for removing mold, after the work is complete a test will be done to check if all the mold was removed, so you can rest assured your home is mold-free!

What are the health risks to mold exposure?

Prolonged exposure to mold can have a negative impact on the health of your family. Even though not all mold is toxic, most mold is allergenic. Common symptoms/side effects of mold exposure include:

  • Eye irritation
  • Skin Irritation/Rashes
  • Increased allergy-like symptoms
  • Shortness of breath
  • Irritation in people with asthma
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Sinus Congestion
  • Headaches
  • Fungal infections
  • And more…

How do I know if I have Mold?

Mold may be present if you notice any of these indicators:

  • A recent leak or flood
  • A musty smell
  • Different color spots on surfaces (black, brown, green, yellow and white are most common)
  • Increased allergy symptoms
  • High humidity inside your home
  • Buckling/cupping in your hardwood floors

However, mold can still be present without any of the above indicators. In this case, a sample can be taken to test for the presence of mold.

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Even if mold is not visually seen, sometimes it can grow in areas where a visual inspection may not detect it. Determining whether or not mold is present in a home is important not only since it can ruin the house structure, but it can cause delayed health symptoms or show no symptoms at all yet attribute to underlying respiratory issues. It’s vital to quickly determine through an indoor air quality test whether or not you have mold, what type of mold you have, and to what extent.

Elite offers an extremely affordable test that will help you see if you see just how bad your mold problem is so you can decide if you’re ready to take action in removing any mold that’s growing in your home. The test is simple and non-intrusive, and will provide you the comprehensive details you need to make a well informed decision. After the test has been conducted, we will send it to a third-party laboratory for a professional analysis. They will provide us with a detailed report which will include mold types, spore counts and any other pollutants that are damaging your indoor air quality.
