Crawlspace encapsulation starts with a full assessment of the space, followed by the creation of a customized plan.
Many structures in the Harrisburg, North Carolina area have crawlspaces. This portion of a home sits beneath the ground level and is designed to provide access to the various components and systems, such as the plumbing and HVAC ductwork. But since it is lower than the rest of the house, it’s prone to moisture damage and other issues. Even a small leak can cause moisture to accumulate in the crawlspace, which increases the risk of mold growth and significant damage.
Since you probably don’t spend a lot of time in your crawlspace, you may not know when problems are present. However, mold growth can give off some warning signs. Many people are allergic to mold spores, so people in your home might experience sore throats, congestion, eye irritation, or headaches when exposed to mold. Musty odors in the air or damp sections on your walls or floors can also indicate the presence of moisture in your living space.
Taking a preventive approach to moisture issues is the best option to protect your structure. At AdvantaClean of Cabarrus and Rowan Counties, we work with local property owners to provide crawlspace encapsulation, an effective solution for moisture problems. Crawlspace encapsulation starts with a full assessment of the space, followed by the creation of a customized plan.
We can install various components to prevent moisture from collecting in the crawlspace and appropriately eliminate any moisture that does make its way into this part of your home. For more information about crawlspace encapsulation, contact us today.
