Crawl Space Encapsulation

crawlspace encapsulation in Durham

The purpose of a crawl space encapsulation system is to provide a barrier between the inside of your home and the outside elements. A large percentage of the air inside of your home originates within your crawl space, which means having a clean crawlspace is paramount to having healthy air inside your home.

At Elite Moisture Solutions, our priority is putting together an encapsulation system that best meets your needs. We provide free visual inspections to determine what needs you have, if any, and can provide you with a same day proposal that you’ll find is not only affordable, but also provides an additional discount if you’re ready to go ahead and take action. We can also include a timeline of when and how all the work for sealing your crawlspace will get done. We are dedicated to making sure you are satisfied!

Mold Remediation

Mold is everywhere and can have a negative impact on you, your family, or your employee’s health. It can develop from water damage due to leaks, or it can grow from high levels of moisture under your home within the crawlspace. Mold removal should not be delayed, since it can continue to grow and not only affects the health of those within your home, but it can damage your property.

At Elite Moisture Solutions we understand that removing mold from your home might seem daunting due to the unknown elements of how extensive is the damage and how expensive will it be to remove the mold, which is why we offer free visual mold inspections and low cost mold testing options which makes identifying mold issues accessible. If mold is discovered within your home or company building, Elite can work quickly to remove it, and limit your exposure. Our certified team of experts can help you with the process as we use tried and true methods for removing mold as well as performing quality assurance checks and post remediation air testing to ensure your property is mold free!
