Crawlspaces can be spooky: damp, dark, claustrophobic areas inhabited by rodents and bugs. Who would want to go in there? Fortunately, the experts at Residential ResQ will do the hard work for you. No need for you to get geared up in coveralls and a breathing mask, we’re all ready to tackle your crawlspace.
Crawlspace encapsulation involves installing a heavy vapor barrier to block any moisture that can enter the area and then into your home through the floor or other openings. The vapor barrier will keep moisture from entering your crawlspace from the ground below, so you won’t have mold and mildew problems, which can rot wood and in addition cause your home to smell musty. Mold and mildew can harm both your home and your family, so it needs to be addressed quickly. Some types of mold are very dangerous and shouldn’t be ignored.
Crawlspace Vapor Barriers
We proudly use Earth Contact Products vapor barriers to help you with your crawlspace problems. The barrier guards against mold, mildew, fungus, radon, methane and other allergens. This design will prevent any odors and gasses from entering the home and affecting your family. Some of the benefits of ECP encapsulation are lowered energy costs, reduced humidity levels and a reduction in odors. Once the liner is down and sealed, we will install a dehumidifier to remove moisture and improve the crawlspace air quality.
