Traditional crawl spaces are a leading source of mold in homes which causes poor indoor air quality, and can be linked to asthma, allergies, and health issues. Without encapsulation, moisture, odors, mold spores, and pests can enter your home. Take control of your home’s indoor air quality with our crawl space encapsulation system.
Why Encapsulation is Better
Better Indoor Air
Traditional crawlspaces are generally damp areas that lead to mold growth which can drastically affect the indoor air quality of the home.
Encapsulation eliminates path for molds, bacteria, and pests; all potential allergens.
Protection of Property
A professionally encapsulated crawlspace helps preserve the structure of your home. By controlling ground moisture as well as removing excessive humidity from the air we are able to:
Prevent mold, rot and other potential structural damage.
Improve air quality in the crawlspace AND home above.
According to the Advanced Energy Study, homeowners can reduce energy bills by up to 15% by encapsulating the crawlspace.
Encapsulated crawl spaces control air leakage, and saves money on heating and cooling.
Heating / Cooling systems and ducts perform more efficiently.
With no barrier between you and the crawlspace, odors, moisture, and mold spores can get drawn into your living area due to natural convection. This is known as the “stack effect”. In our experience, a traditional crawlspace is a leading source of mold in homes, which causes poor indoor air quality, and can be linked to asthma, allergies, and health issues.
