One of the many services we offer here at Nixon Cleaning and Restoration LLC is crawlspace encapsulation. This process involves installing a waterproof barrier all around the inside of your crawlspace to keep out moisture, and it can also include installing dehumidifiers for extra moisture protection.
While crawlspace encapsulation is not always strictly necessary, it does offer several great benefits that we’ll go over below.
- Moisture Damage Prevention – As we hinted at above, one of the primary benefits of crawlspace encapsulation is the prevention of mold growth and other moisture problems. By keeping moisture out of your crawlspace, you prevent condensation, discourage rot, and can avoid a whole host of other issues.
- Improved Comfort – Crawlspace encapsulation can also make your home more comfortable. First, encapsulation frequently involves installing new insulation in the crawlspace, which helps keep your home comfortable in all seasons. Second, encapsulation also prevents moisture from the outdoors from entering your indoor air, reducing indoor humidity.
- Pest Prevention – A third benefit of crawlspace encapsulation is improved pest control. Many pests, including cockroaches, rats, and more, are attracted to dark, damp environments like crawlspaces and will eagerly make their home there. Our crawlspace encapsulation process will make this space much less appealing to these pests by keeping it dry, and the moisture barrier also acts as a physical boundary against vermin.
