Encapsulating or sealing a crawl space is a great option to prevent a host of problems related to moisture in your home. During the encapsulation process, a water vapor barrier and dehumidifier are installed to regulate moisture in this area and maintain a healthy humidity level. If you've noticed dampness under your house, call Foundation Doctor today!
The process of basement or crawl space sealing involves the installation of heavy polyethylene sheeting. By covering the walls, floor and ceiling of this area, water is prevented from seeping through and causing damage. Once the encapsulation process is completed, the final step typically is to install a dehumidifier to help maintain a proper humidity level. A sealed crawl space ensures that many of the most common issues related to excessive wetness, such as mold and mildew, can be avoided.

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU NEED CRAWL SPACE ENCAPSULATION?
Because a crawl space is directly connected to your house, it can impact the conditions inside the home. Excess water vapor can cause significant issues for your living spaces and health. These issues can create bigger problems, such as:
- Mildew/musty smell in basement
- Soft or separating floors
- Insect problems
- High cooling costs
- Wet insulation
- Sweating windows
- Variety of health problems
HOW TO BLOCK YOUR CRAWL SPACE
We begin by taking a close look at your crawl space to identify any leaks or other areas where moisture is seeping into your foundation. Any mold that may have started growing needs to be removed before we start the encapsulating process. Additionally, if there is any existing insulation or encapsulation material already down there, we will remove it. That provides us with a fresh start to install a new vapor barrier.
Our professionals will make sure we cover every square inch with the material and sealing tape, including around vents and over all walls and floors. Once we’re done, you will be able to rest easier knowing you have the right level of protection under your feet.
