What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Crawl space encapsulation involves a multi-step process, starting with cleaning up and removing any damaged material. We then install any water removal and control that is needed. Finally, polyurethane sheeting is used to fully waterproof and rodent-proof the area.

Essentially, you are fully covering the area, from the walls to the floors. When we are finished, you will have a new area of the home where you can store items. The entire home benefits from crawl space encapsulation.

Who Needs Crawl Space Encapsulation?

You will likely notice issues when crawl space encapsulation is needed. Those issues can include pests, moisture, and mold. Even if you don’t have any of those problems, your home and family would still benefit from crawl space encapsulation. Call Epp Foundation Repair to see what we can do for you.

Here are some of the most common signs that you need to encapsulate your crawl space.

Mold and Mildew:

When you have mold in your home, you likely have more problems than fungal growth. It is often associated with the crawl space and excess moisture.

Low Air Quality:

It is important to pay attention to the air quality in your home. Low air quality can have a significant impact on your health. When the air quality in the crawl space is low, it will affect the entire home.

Water Intrusion:

When your crawl space isn't protected, it is open to water. This can be in the form of high humidity and it can also be seen in standing water.

High Energy Bills:

When your energy bill keeps going up, don't blame the power company. Sometimes, the high humidity and air exchange with the crawl space causes the entire home to be uncomfortable.

Insect or Rodent Intrusion:

Bugs, rats, and other pests love a crawl space. It provides the perfect environment for them to enter, and from there, it is a small step into the living space.

Pest Infestation Control

Nobody wants pests in their home, but having an unprotected crawl space can easily lead to pests. It's bad enough to have rodents or insects in the crawl space but they tend to enter our living space as well. When you encapsulate the crawl space, you stop it from happening.
