Allowing excess moisture and poor air quality to remain in your home can lead to many troubling problems. Moisture can lead to mold, which can be dangerous, especially to people with respiratory issues.

What exactly is crawlspace encapsulation?
Crawlspace encapsulation is a method of protecting this area of your home from moisture damage, and it consists of sealing off the area with a durable, watertight barrier to prevent moisture from getting in.
