Facts About Crawl Space Encapsulation
First, What Is Encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation is the process of sealing your crawl space to address moisture issues underneath your house.
Besides being a breeding ground for mold, your crawl space can make it difficult to cool and heat your home. Think about it. You have this space under your home. As the relative humidity rises and gets above 70% mold begins to thrive. Mold begins to eat away at your house creating health hazards for you and your family.
Why Consider Encapsulation?
Water vapor and excessive moisture can cause significant problems in your home. Here are some typical signs where encapsulation makes sense:
- Mold or mildew
- Musty smell in basement
- Floors that are getting soft or separating
- High cooling costs
- Wet insulation
- Sweat on the windows
- Insect problems
