Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation
if you are unsure of why you should get your crawl space encapsulated, understanding the benefits will help you to understand the importance of it. There are so many reasons to consider this service:
Improves air quality
Crawl spaces that are not encapsulated are hot spots for moisture collection, and when moisture begins to collect can result in mold growing. When moisture is removed, the humid air can not circulate through your home, creating a cleaner air circulation throughout your home.
Removes insect infestation
Just as moisture cultivates mold, it also creates an area for insects to infest as they need moisture to live. Avoid the threat of insect infestation, property damage, and the mess that pests bring by taking action and getting your crawl space professional encapsulation. Crawl space encapsulations eliminate the possibility of creating conditions that welcome pests such as termites.
Prevents mold and mildew issues
As stated previously, a buildup or long term exposure to moisture can foster an environment for mold to grow. By eliminating unwanted moisture issues from your crawl spaces, you are also eliminating musty, wet odors that can enter your home from your heating and air conditioning unit, ultimately removing the chances of mold growth and increasing the living conditions within your home.
Prevents structural damage
In order to keep your home’s foundation in good condition for the long run, it’s important to prevent moisture from collecting in your crawl space. When you successfully remove any possible moisture from accumulating within your crawl space, you are ultimately keeping it from seeping into the soil around your home’s foundation. Just as you use gutters to move water away from your home’s foundation, you should encapsulate your crawl space to ensure the health of your foundation.
Increases energy efficiency
When you remove the moisture out of your crawl space, your heating and air conditioning unit won’t have to fight the damp air resulting in less energy usage and a cheaper utility bill each month. According to research crawl space encapsulation can reduce your energy bill up to 20%, so over time, having your crawl space encapsulated will pay for itself by the increase in energy efficiency.
Improves the comfort of your floors
Not only does crawl space encapsulation keep your home’s hardwood and tile floors temperature more comfortable to walk on, it also keeps your home from feeling wet and humid during the hot summer months. The moisture in a crawl space can rot wood and causes hardwood floors to warp and distort. To keep your house in comfortable living conditions and in the best shape possible.
