What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Crawl space encapsulation is a multi-step process. After removing old and damaged material, such as insulation, we wrap the area using poly sheeting, so it is clean, dry, and no longer a welcoming environment to rodents and insects.

Who Needs Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Most homeowners would benefit from crawl space encapsulation. There may be additional steps that need to be taken as well, such as removing or diverting water away from the crawl space. If you are seeing some of the following signs of trouble, your home may be a good candidate.

Bug Infestation:

Crawl spaces are a prime area for a bug infestation. The problem is, the bugs don't stay in the area under your home, they come up into the living space.

Mold Growth:

Mold needs food, water, and oxygen to grow. It also needs a suitable temperature. Before your crawlspace is encapsulated, it has everything needed for mold growth in abundance.

Water Around Foundation:

Water intrusion is a serious problem that could even undermine the foundation walls. A field tile or other drain system can be used along with encapsulation to protect your crawl space.

High Energy Costs:

One of the main reasons why people seek the help of Epp is due to rising energy costs. The higher humidity and unprotected walls can make it difficult to keep your home comfortable.

Strong Musty Smells:

Have you ever heard the saying, Where there's smoke, there's fire? Well, if you have strong musty smells in the home, you likely have a problem with mold and mildew.
