An unsealed crawl space can serve as a great home for unwanted pests. Unsecured crawl space doors and vents often allow access to varmint such as raccoons, opossums, snakes, rats, and more enabling them to use your crawl space as the perfect shelter.

What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl Space Encap Tile

Crawl space encapsulation is the process of sealing your crawl space to reduce humidity and water leaks with the overall goal of preventing mold growth and keeping unwanted pests out of your home. At its base, crawl space encapsulation involves lining the floor and the crawl space walls with overlapping plastic sheeting made of polyethylene plastic. Also, vents and doors to the crawl space are replaced with products designed to be secure and moisture resistant.

Additionally, this process is often taken a step further by installing moisture-resistant vapor barriers on the bare floor of the crawl space. These barriers prevent foul odors and gasses from rising into your home.

Also, a sump pump is often installed to prevent any moisture buildup in the foundation of the crawl space, along with a dehumidifier to keep the humidity at a constant, making it easier to keep your home cool in the summertime. 

When your crawl space is fully encapsulated, you will no longer have to worry about dangerous mold growth, unwanted guests, and can look forward to lower energy bills.
