Making sure your home environment is the healthiest it can be is a top priority for most people, as is protecting their physical building structure. One thing to consider is that up to half of the air entering your home comes from the crawlspace, which is the narrow area underneath your home between the ground level of your home and the soil. Since so much of the air we breathe comes from this crawlspace area, it makes sense to make sure this area is in excellent shape with crawlspace encapsulation.
Crawlspace encapsulation is the process of covering your entire crawlspace with thick plastic sheeting that is resistant to moisture and pests. Mold is naturally present in the soil, and in the hot, humid environment under your home, can thrive and proliferate. Keeping mold spores from entering the air you breathe inside can prevent respiratory ailments that can accompany mold exposure. Controlling the moisture in this space also helps prevent structural damage that can occur with exposure to high humidity, therefore protecting the structural integrity of your home.
Additionally, crawlspace encapsulation can prevent insects such as termites, ants, spiders, and other unwelcome critters from invading your space. It won’t eliminate them, but it can reduce their presence in the area underneath your home.
