Crawl Space Encapsulation From NuTech
When it comes to perfect places for mold, few can be more inviting than an unsealed crawl space. Moisture in a dark crawl space combined with Atlanta’s heat and humidity makes for the perfect combo for mold to thrive. That is why crawl space encapsulation is so important to prevent this perfect combo.
Mold growth can affect your entire home and make your family sick. NuTech has the tools and expertise for crawl space encapsulation and can dry out even the dampest crawl spaces and turn them into drier, healthier foundations for your home.
Why Consider Encapsulation?
Encapsulating your crawl space is always a good idea. You can head off many potential problems simultaneously, like mold growth, high energy bills, decreased property value, and potential health problems due to mold.
Think about your home for a moment and ask yourself if you’ve experienced any of these problems:
- Musty smell in basement or crawl space
- Floors that are getting soft or separating
- Wet or sagging insulation
- High cooling costs
- Sweat on the windows
- Insect problems
- Difficulty breathing in your home
Our Dry-Space Technique at NuTech has everything your crawl space needs to protect your home against the dangers of excessive moisture, high energy bills, and mold. We handle everything from your current crawl space’s cleanup to its full encapsulation. Our Dry-Space Technique includes the following:
Removing existing debris from your crawl space, followed by a thorough cleaning. Mold remediation is also included.
After a thorough cleaning of your crawl space, we install a wall-to-wall guide, durable vapor barrier to protect your crawl space from moisture.
The final step in our Dry-Space Technique is the attachment of the vapor barrier over ground and up sidewalls to 6 inches below floor joists.
