Crawl space Encapsulation
Creating a Healthier Home
Crawl space encapsulation effectively protects your home from excessive moisture, reduces pests and mold infestation, and improves your home’s energy efficiency. It involves sealing your crawl space with a moisture barrier, which makes your home safer and healthier. Premium Waterproofing will encapsulate your crawl space to ensure a higher quality, moisture-free home environment.
Further Benefits of Crawl space Encapsulation
Encapsulating your crawl space leads to higher air quality within the home because there is no opportunity for moisture buildup. It prevents the growth of mold and makes the environment unconducive to pests. It also prevents excessive cold and hot air from seeping into your home through the crawl space – providing relief for your HVAC system, and making your home more energy efficient. An encapsulated crawl space can lead to the prevention of structural damage and increased home value as well.
What’s Involved in Crawl Space Encapsulation
Before the crawlspace is encapsulated, it needs to be cleaned out, and any necessary repairs need to be made. A heavy-duty polyethylene barrier can then be placed to cover the crawl space so no moisture builds up over time. A dehumidifier can also be placed in the crawl space to keep moisture levels down.
Continued Maintenance and Inspection
While there are several benefits to crawl space encapsulation, it’s important to have it regularly inspected to ensure there are no holes or tears. It’s also important to monitor humidity levels and ensure proper ventilation.
