Keep your crawlspace in the best shape with crawlspace encapsulation.

Here at AdvantaClean of Lake Norman, Hickory and Gastonia, we take care of all different areas of your home in the Gastonia, North Carolina area, even ones that most people avoid entering! If you have a crawlspace, especially one that is only made of the ground and not of poured concrete, you should consider crawlspace encapsulation for the many benefits that it offers. Crawlspace encapsulation is the practice of putting high-quality plastic sheeting to create a barrier between the earthen ground and the floors of your home. This creates a cleaner, more functional space that is advantageous to the floors above. Consider some of the following advantages to having our team here at AdvantaClean of Lake Norman, Hickory and Gastonia encapsulate your crawlspace:

  • Cleaner Air- Many people don’t realize just how permeable our floors and walls are. Even if you have well-built and solid spaces, air from your crawlspace can still make its way into your home- and bring dirt, dust, mildew and mold spores along with it.
  • Safer Living Spaces- Crawlspace encapsulation is a great way to protect your living spaces. Often crawlspaces are damp and musty. That extra humidity can work through the ground and rise to the living spaces, creating musty carpeting, cupping or buckling wood floors and other issues.
  • More Energy Efficient- Your crawlspace can fluctuate temperatures since it is not heated or cooled, which drastically can change the temperature of the floors above. If you encapsulate your crawlspace, your floors above will be more energy efficient.

Professionalism, efficiency, promptness, and great customer service.


“I got a quote from a different, very popular company for work to be done and was astonished at how much they wanted to charge us. Then I found AdvantaClean. The other company was slow to come, the office employee was not polite, and the price was exorbitant. Everyone with whom we dealt at AdvantaClean – Julie in the office, Josh who came to assess, and the two kind workers who came to do the job – displayed professionalism, efficiency, promptness, and great customer service. The AdvantaClean price was far lower despite coming from another town. The result appears to be exactly what was needed. I will definitely recommend them to others.”

FAQs About Crawlspace Encapsulation

Our team at AdvantaClean of Lake Norman, Hickory and Gastonia wants to help you do what’s best for your home, and we offer a wide range of services designed to tackle a variety of problems. Here, we will be focusing on crawlspace encapsulation and go over a few of our most frequently asked questions on the subject.

What is crawlspace encapsulation?

The term “crawlspace encapsulation” refers to a method designed to protect your crawlspace—and the house above it—from moisture problems. Our team will install waterproof barriers around the walls and floor of your crawlspace (and sometimes the ceiling as well, if necessary) to keep excess moisture out. In addition, we may also install dehumidifiers to add further protection against moisture.

How do I know if I need crawlspace encapsulation?

Encapsulating your crawlspace is nearly always beneficial, as doing so helps prevent mold growth, keeps your air cleaner, and can even make your home more energy efficient. We particularly recommend this service for anyone who lives near a large body of water, or for households in which one or more people suffer from sensitive allergies. Our crawlspace encapsulation services will keep excess moisture, as well as harmful spores, out of your home so that you can breathe easier, both literally and metaphorically.

Can I encapsulate my own crawlspace?

While it is technically possible to install your own moisture barriers around your crawlspace, we wouldn’t recommend doing so. You will get much better results by hiring trained professionals to do it for you, and on top of that, crawlspace encapsulation is a difficult, unpleasant job that you wouldn’t want to do yourself anyway.

We appreciate the kind words and your business! Steve SmithSteve Smith ★★★★★ When I called in to ask about cleaning my ductwork, I thought she said they would clean the evaporator coil and fan but the crew said they didn't clean them. I think they said they would spray them with a sanitizer. The crew did a great job.Response from the ownerSteve, we are sorry you were given misinformation when inquiring about the duct cleaning process, but we are very happy everything went smoothly when scheduled! We appreciate your business! Julie Lyndsey SmithLyndsey Smith ★★★★★ This company was great! We just moved in to a 1948 bungalow in Belmont and I knew the ducts had probably never been cleaned. The guys that came were on time, professional and efficient! Highly recommend!!Response from the ownerGood call bringing us in for a cleaning, Lyndsey! Glad we could give you some peace of mind about your air quality as you settle into your beautiful new home. If there's anything you need in the future, just reach out. -Julie D., Owner Stephen SteigerStephen Steiger ★★★★★ Great Company! AdvantaClean recently helped us out recently with our sump pump that was installed prior to us moving in. Our sump pump alarm was sounding underneath the house and based on positive local word of mouth, we called AdvantaClean. They were incredibly responsive. As soon as we called Julie, we received a warm welcome to the area and Josh came out to diagnose the issue. At first we thought the pump motor had failed, but Josh carefully inspected and it only needed proper cleaning to be back up and running. He explained everything in detail with a great base of knowledge. This company is honest. In today's day and age, you see people making a quick buck and possibly repairing something that has an easier resolution. Nice to see they were here to help, not just adding another invoice. Things are working great now and we will be calling them back if we need any service under our house.Response from the ownerStephen, it's great that we were able to get your pump back up and running again! Josh is happy to share his knowledge so you know exactly what to expect. Our community deserves to feel comfortable in their own homes, so if an issue ever comes up again, don't hesitate to let us know. -Julie D., Owner Steve StalnakerSteve Stalnaker ★★★★★ AdvantaClean responded very quickly in evaluating a home I was considering purchasing and provided important information in developing an offer for the purchase. After purchasing the home they installed a moisture barrier and implemented corrective action to divert water away from the home. The quality of the work provided by the crew dispatched to perform the work was great and they were very professional. I strongly recommend this company.Response from the ownerThank you Steve. We were happy we could assist you in your new home purchase! Stacy KnightStacy Knight ★★★★★ When I found out that I had mold underneath my crawlspace and in my Duck Work. Of course I was worried and concerned , as this was the first time I’ve ever had this issue. I got on the phone and had no idea who to call, do you call a mold expert, a Duck Work cleaning service? I called several companies to come out and take a look but was steered so many different directions. !! I was told so many different things and was so confused and still didn’t really know what direction to take. Or what was true and not true. So I decided to call one more company and that was Advanta cleaning. They came out to do a free estimate the very next day. The guy Josh was extremely knowledgeable and told me that the mold wasn’t bad at all nothing out of the ordinary for where we live and having a crawlspace. Not only did he take his time to explain everything but I also shared pictures of underneath my crawlspace while he was explaining everything and how to take care of it. And insured me everything is gonna be fine. From that moment I knew that this was the company I wanted to take care of our home our investment. Julie the owner called to put us on the schedule !!! Yay !!! They showed up the morning of their scheduled date 9:00 AM sharp. Not only were they very professional but they are punctual, hard-working and honest. Honest is the big keyword for me here. This company saved us a $1400 by addressing the problem and nothing unnecessary. I don’t know about you guys but if you want honesty and good work done call this company. I would like to personally thank Josh for coming out and giving me an honest estimate. And I would like to thank Julie the owner. I am extremely happy With this company.Response from the ownerThank you for the review Stacy! We enjoyed working with you!
