Crawl Space Encapsulation

How often do you go in or even look in inside your crawl space? The answer for most homeowners is almost never and if they do go inside its only to grab a yard tool or other personal belonging that may set right at the entrance. If asked to describe their crawl space they use words like creepy, musky, damp, dark or smelly.

Most homeowners have no idea how the crawl space effects the rest of the house. Energy bills, mold, poor air quality, structural issues are some of the more prevalent issues you face with a “creepy crawl space”!

Signs of Contaminated Crawl Space

Current building codes and practices are flawed and help create the conundrum right under your feet. There are many warning signs to a contaminated or faulty crawl space like:

  • Standing water in parts of your crawl space.
  • Water stains on your foundation wall.
  • Sagging or low hanging insulation from the floor joists (moisture collects on insulation weighing it down causing it to fall or sag).
  • Mold growth on your wood structure or any items that are stored under the home.
  • Mold in the living space of home.
  • Buckling hardwood floors.
  • Aggravated asthma and allergies

Warning signs like standing water and mold growth present a substantial health hazard. If you have these signs, then investigate immediately. There is an elevated health risk if your heating and air equipment is located in these areas. Most heating and cooling duct systems have an average of 30% leakage. The leakage allows the contaminated air to enter the conditioned air system and spread throughout the home.
