What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Crawl space encapsulation is the process of wrapping the crawl space walls and floors with a thick layer of poly sheeting. There is also much more to the process, which can include redirecting water away from the crawlspace and foundation or tearing out damaged insulation and replacing it. Epp can help with this process and more.

Who Needs Crawl Space Encapsulation?

If you are wondering who needs crawl space encapsulation you would be better asking, ‘Who doesn’t need it?’ After all, all homes with a crawl space would benefit from having it done, including those that are already experiencing serious issues. Here are some of the primary reasons to consider the process for your home.

High Humidity:

Moisture is a big problem and it can result in additional issues, including mold, wood decay, etc. Once the crawl space is encapsulated, the humidity level will drop significantly throughout the home.

Poor Air Quality:

If you see that the air quality in the home is dropping, it might be due to issues with the crawl space. When you encapsulate the crawl space, it improves the air quality throughout the entire home.

Mold and Mildew:

Mold and mildew need a warm, damp place to thrive and the crawl space is the ideal location. If you have mold and mildew in the crawl space or anywhere in the home, crawl space encapsulation will help.

Energy Costs:

Energy costs have risen in recent years but they may even be higher due to a drafty, damp crawlspace. High energy bills are one of the top reasons people contact Epp for crawl space encapsulation.

Pest Infestation:

Both insects and rodents do well in a crawl space when it is unprotected. Crawl space encapsulation protects that part of the home from infestation.
