Is Crawl Space Encapsulation Necessary?

Your crawl space is the perfect place for mold to grow, odors to build, and household pests to flourish.

Mold

Moisture in crawl spaces often originate from condensation on ductwork and damp soil. Humid air entering through foundation vents can also lead to moisture problems. Without corrective measures, moisture leads to mold. And unfortunately, fungi leads to structural damage.

Musty Odor

Crawl spaces with exposed soil and high humidity tend to have what most would call a musty odor. The odor permeates upward and brings the unwanted smell into the living space of the structure.

Termites And Household Pests

Crawl spaces, for the most part, are often ignored or unused by homeowners. This is good news for termites and other household pests including ants and spiders. The moisture attract insects, most notably termites. Termites are a wood-destroying pest that consume water-damaged or rotting wood. They'll move onto sound wood and are responsible for causing extensive structural damage. Unfortunately, crawl spaces offer the perfect environment for these destructive pests.

Wood-Destroying Fungi Damage

Excessive wood moisture content can lead to active fungi. This in turn can lead to wood decay and damage. The result, structural weakness.
