Crawl space encapsulation is a process that converts your damp or moldy crawl space into a clean, dry crawl space. Since moisture can get into your crawl space from the damp environment, encapsulation helps deter the moisture from entering. This is important because air flows up into your home from the crawl space and contaminated air can affect your indoor air quality.
A crawl space is encapsulated by adding a liner to cover the floor of your crawl space and installing insulation to add R-value to the crawl space and help maintain a comfortable temperature inside your home.
After encapsulation is complete, the final step is to make sure the air maintains an ambient humidity level. Commonly, a dehumidifier is added to regulate the amount of moisture in your crawl space.
Some of the benefits of encapsulating your crawl space are better indoor air quality, avoidance of mold and pests, additional storage and better energy efficiency in your home.
