If your crawlspace is damp, dark, and moist, you’ve probably thought about crawlspace encapsulation at one point or another. Crawlspace encapsulation creates a permanent barrier that prevents moisture from becoming an issue in this space.
If you have yet to encapsulate your crawlspace, there are plenty of reasons to get this job completed sooner rather than later. Here are just a few good reasons to move forward with this home improvement project:
- Moisture Control — One of the main reasons for crawlspace encapsulation is to control moisture and humidity levels in this part of your home. By sealing your crawlspace, you keep moisture from entering, which can lower the risk of mold, mildew, and wood rot. This can also lead to a healthier indoor environment and help prevent damage to your home’s structure.
- Improved Air Quality — Crawlspace encapsulation can help prevent mold growth while reducing the presence of allergens and pollutants in your home. This can help improve your home’s indoor air quality, which is especially important if someone in your household struggles with respiratory issues or allergies.
- Energy Efficiency — When you encapsulate your crawlspace, you can improve your home’s energy efficiency. By sealing off this space, you can prevent conditioned air from escaping through your crawlspace, which can result in lower energy bills because your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard.
