If your house has a crawl space, then you probably know they can hold a lot of issues, from moisture, rot, and mold to pests. And even a vented crawl space can fall victim to water damage. If you are concerned about your crawlspace, then you have a few options to seal and protect it. In particular, crawl space encapsulation is probably the best method. Here are some reasons why crawl space encapsulation could work best for your home.
The unfortunate downside of crawl spaces is that they are notorious moisture-collectors. But since it’s easy to forget about your crawl space in daily life, you might not notice how much water damage has affected it from rain and condensation until problems emerge. Crawl space encapsulation uses strong polyurethane material to block out water and keep your crawl space dry. It will prevent water damage as well as mold and pests that normally thrive in dark, damp conditions.
An unexpected benefit of crawl space encapsulation is how it increases the energy efficiency of your home. Crawl space encapsulation helps insulate your home by sealing out drafty air that gets through the crawl space. This will make your home more comfortable without you needing to waste as much heating and air conditioning. You might be surprised at how much crawl space encapsulation can save on your energy bills over time.
Lastly, crawl space encapsulation will help protect your home on a structural level. Since the crawl space is essentially a part of the foundation, it can be troubling what might happen if water damage weakens it. The combination of rot, mold, and burrowing pests and easily compromise the structure of your home. Crawl space encapsulation will keep excess water from softening the soil around your foundation and prevent any dangerous and costly structural failures.
