Proactively take care of moisture problems with crawlspace encapsulation.
Common crawlspace problems include wood rot, sagging or wet insulation, termite damage beneath your home, hardwood floors “cupping,” visible mold growth, and condensation on the ductwork. If your crawlspace has an earthen floor, ground moisture can evaporate into the space beneath your home, increasing moisture levels in the actual crawlspace and within the structure of your home.
A significant percentage of your household air comes up from your crawlspace, so it’s essential to keep this usually ignored space as dry and clean as possible. One of the best ways to accomplish this is through crawlspace encapsulation, which involves adding a vapor barrier and dehumidifier to improve indoor air quality and enhance energy efficiency within your home.
