Investing in Crawl Space Encapsulation can help you keep your home clean and dry, while improving the air quality in your home. Crawl spaces tend to be dark and damp, and can be a breeding ground for mold. Mold can be harmful to your health and can cause structural damage to your home. Crawl Space Encapsulation can help to keep mold from growing, and can also prevent mildew from being piped through your HVAC system.
What is the difference between a vapor barrier and encapsulation?
Crawl spaces can be a storage space or a way to store valuables. However, if moisture accumulates beneath your home, it can damage your foundation. Mold can also develop in your home if it becomes too humid. This can affect your health and cause allergies.
Crawl spaces are also attracted to pests, and may even contain harmful bacteria. A ventilation system can help improve the air quality in your home and reduce the number of pests. It also lowers energy usage.
Crawl space encapsulation can also reduce the amount of humidity in your home. This can reduce the amount of work your air conditioner has to do in the summer, and can reduce the amount of mold growing on your belongings. It can also reduce condensation on your windows.
Crawl space encapsulation is best left to a professional. If you attempt to encapsulate your crawl space on your own, you may waste money and time. A professional will be able to properly install your system, and will recommend the right material for your needs.
