Leaving No Space Inefficient
If your home has a crawl space, it’s playing a factor in your indoor air quality. That’s because up to 50% of the air in your home comes from the crawl space. So, if your crawl space is poorly insulated, producing mold, or provides a home for bacteria, your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) will suffer. Without the proper UV lights in place, your AC system will circulate that bacteria throughout your home.
By encapsulating your crawl space, you create a barrier between your home and the outdoor elements. Even in block homes, moisture can seep through the concrete. But, with crawl space encapsulation, you can eliminate the risk of condensation and other detrimental elements from invading your home and wreaking havoc on your foundation. Not only will you improve the air quality of your home, but you’ll also lower your energy bills.

How Crawl Space Encapsulation Impacts Your Home
Much like you put down paper before painting the walls of your home, crawl space encapsulation is a preventative measure that can help you avoid future air hazards. It’s similar to the lining of a pool — providing a thick, plastic layer to keep out pests, moisture, and odors. This barrier covers the ground, walls, and sometimes the ceiling to help lock out elements.
