The Best Crawl Space Encapsulation in Franklin, Tennessee.
Crawl Space Encapsulation is just what your damp, moldy and pest infested crawl space needs.
Crawl space encapsulation is a sealing treatment 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.
Encapsulation 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 for crawl space encapsulation 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.
Did you know that encapsulation
is one of the most effective ways to prevent damage caused by indoor moisture?
We’re happy to go through the process and results with you so that you understand the benefits in entirety. Some major benefits of having encapsulation for your home are protecting your home from mold, improving air quality, avoiding structural damage, reducing energy costs, keeping pests out and the addition of a new space for storage.
Benefits You’ll Reap from Crawl Space Encapsulation
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 encapsulation doesn’t just keep water out, another advantage of this 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.
