Your crawl space is such a small part of your house, but it has a huge impact on the entire home. A home’s crawl space will change the way a home feels, smells, and consumes energy. It all boils down to moisture. If you have moisture in your crawl space, then you have a recipe for lots of problems. If you have a dry crawl space, then your home stays comfortable. So, how do you make sure that your crawl space stays dry for years to come? HS Waterproofing can get the job done with encapsulation.
What is Encapsulation?
“Encapsulation” means lining the entire crawl space with a moisture-proof barrier. This barrier provides a line of defense against humidity, rainstorms, groundwater, and other sources of moisture. Once we’ve lined the crawl space, we’ll install a dehumidifier to keep the area completely dry
Encapsulation is one of your best defenses against moisture, and moisture can cause a lot of damage. Most importantly, moisture can cause foundation problems. When you have a moisture problem, you’ll eventually notice cracks in your walls and floors. These are signs of foundation issues, and these issues can impact your home and its value.
Moisture brings other problems, too. For example, moisture helps mold grow. If you’ve got mold in your crawl space, then you’re probably breathing mold spores inside your house. For those with allergies and asthma, this problem can turn deadly.
Finally, encapsulation can lead to better energy costs. A lot of the air in your home also flows through crawl space. When your crawl space stays dry, your air conditioner and heater have an easier job, which often means lower bills.
