Crawl Space Encapsulation

This crawl space solution is a sealing treatment backed by building scientists that turns your damp, dirty and moldy crawl space into a clean, dry space that can’t grow mold or be penetrated by pests or the elements. Many homes built on crawl space foundations have moisture problems, especially those in the southeast United States.

Crawl spaces don’t just cause issues below ground, although this is where they begin. Mold, mildew and bacteria are often found in crawl spaces and they significantly impact the quality of air and make breathing conditions poor. This may not seem like a problem, especially if you’re assuming that this poor air quality remains in the basement or crawl space. However, this is not the case as air rises and seeps into the rest of your home. Additionally, moisture and vapor that forms in the basement can rot wood frames and floorings that make up the structure of a house. But crawl space encapsulation doesn’t just keep water out, another advantage of a crawl space solution is that termites and other pests are also kept out of the home. You’ll save on energy costs as well, as cool air won’t escape in the summer and heat won’t escape in the chilly winter months.

This crawl space solution works by adding a heavy-duty polyethylene barrier to cover the crawl space, meaning the floors, foundation walls and possibly even the ceiling will be coated. You could compare the encapsulation material to that of a swimming pool liner that is used to prevent leaks. The barrier of this crawl space solution works best when your home’s crawl space is covered completely and sealing tape is used to connect the barrier’s pieces throughout the space. Once the space is sealed, a dehumidifier helps to regulate the crawl space’s moisture levels.

Crawl Space Repair

It’s common practice to build homes on top of a crawl space, a space between 1 foot to 3 feet tall, to elevate the structure off the ground. Crawl spaces often have dirt floors because it’s a much cheaper alternative to pouring concrete. Your crawl space may be hiding moldy insulation, standing water, pests, rodents and insects.

It’s important to find a crawl space solution, like crawl space repair, that works for your home. Commonly, crawl space encapsulation is the best, most effective crawl space solution for repairing your crawl space and saving the rest of your home from poor air quality, mold and mildew, structural damage, reducing energy costs, keeping pests out and adding more storage space.

Vapor & Moisture Barrier

A vapor barrier, also known as a moisture barrier, is a crawl space solution that can help pull your crawl space out of the damp, moldy and mildewy situation it’s in, which will help you to save money on other costs like poor air quality, mold and mildew, structural damage, reducing energy costs, keeping pests out and adding more storage space along the way.

A vapor barrier is what we would consider the bare minimum protection you should consider when it comes to crawl space solutions. A moisture barrier is a plastic liner that covers the dirt floor of your crawl space. It will work to keep moisture and pets from seeping into your home.

Mold, mildew and bacteria are often found in crawl spaces and they significantly impact the quality of air and make breathing conditions poor. This may not seem like a problem, especially if you’re assuming that this poor air quality remains in the basement or crawl space. However, this is not the case as air rises and seeps into the rest of your home. The contaminants and spores found in mold and mildew are harmful to both people and pets and put all those who live in your home at risk of mold-related illnesses, such as asthma. Moreover, your HVAC system will work harder as some of your warm or cold air seeps through the crawl space.

Installing a moisture barrier is a great crawl space solution. The correct amount of barrier will need to be obtained by calculating the square footage of your crawl space. The crawl space should be free of debris before you begin and the barrier should be thick and heavy enough that it doesn’t roll up on itself. The results are not one-and-done, as a new barrier needs to be installed every 5-10 years. You could do it on your own, or you could call our team of professionals at Crawl Space Encapsulation Franklin, Tennessee.

Crawl Space Moisture Control

Crawl space encapsulation is the best crawl space solution for controlling the moisture in your crawl space. When water leaks and seeps into your home, the space becomes the perfect recipe for mold growth. Sometimes rain + leaks can cause mold growth and so can a burst pipe. If you have a flooding issue, you’re also at risk for mold growth in large quantities. The biggest factor that puts you at risk for mold is that there is little to no ventilation in these spaces. Because of the lack of airflow and that they are not able to properly dry after flooding or leakage, it doesn’t take much and it doesn’t take long for mold to start growing.

Our crawl space solutions work to turn your damp, dirty and moldy crawl spaces into clean dry spaces where moisture isn’t retained, making it impossible for mold to grow. Our team of experienced professional contractors have all crawl space solutions, like the crawl space encapsulation installation and application processes, on lock and will transform your crawl space into a clean, dry foundation for your home.
