3 Reasons Your Home Needs Crawlspace Encapsulation

It’s easy to not think about the things you cannot see, even if those things are right under your feet. While many of us have crawlspaces beneath our homes, they are often dark and dirty, and are therefore largely ignored by most people. However, your crawlspace is an important feature of your home and needs a little extra care to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the rest of your home. Crawlspace encapsulation is a great way to make this happen, and if you don’t already have crawlspace encapsulation, here are three reasons why you should.

1. Cleaner Air- Crawlspace encapsulation does what it sounds like– it encapsulates your crawlspace in heavy-duty plastic sheeting. When you have crawlspace encapsulation completed, you can worry less about the air you and your family breathe within your home.

2. More Even Temperatures- Crawlspace encapsulation helps to regulate temperatures in your crawlspace and therefore in the rest of your home. You won’t feel cold or hot spots, and you’ll also be able to enjoy a more efficient HVAC system.

3. Mold Resistant- Mold loves areas that are dark and damp– basically everything that a crawlspace is. With crawlspace encapsulation, you don’t have to worry about moisture buildup and mold damaging the structure of your crawlspace. This preventative measure is a great way to avoid mold remediation services in your crawlspace later on.
