Why Encapsulate Your Crawlspace?


Why Encapsulate Your Crawlspace?

Humid climates cause high humidity in the crawlspace. High humidity and moisture in the crawlspace promotes the growth of mildew and mold that can cause structural damage and unhealthy air below the sub floor that seeps into the home environment.

Encapsulating or conditioning a crawlspace creates an environment that can be controlled. Controlling the environment in the crawlspace prevents moisture and humidity from entering the crawlspace preventing mold, mildew, and unhealthy air-which can be detrimental to your health.
