When fully encapsulating a crawl space, many steps are taken to eliminate moisture and all moisture related issues. When you stop moisture issues in your home, you no longer have to deal with mold, wood rot, insects, foul odors, etc.
Vented crawl spaces have a negative impact on your indoor air quality as most of the air in your home originates in the crawl space. An encapsulation system supplies a barrier between your home and the outside environment. Additionally, crawlspace encapsulations reduce moisture levels and ensures that mold does not develop. This means that the air coming from an encapsulated crawlspace is clean and, in turn, ensures that the air inside your home is clean as well.
Benefits of crawlspace encapsulation include:
- Moisture control for decreased likelihood of mold growth
- More stable temperatures in your home
- Cleaner and healthier indoor air
- Greater home energy efficiency
- Lower energy bills
- Better structural integrity
