Professional Crawlspace Encapsulation Services

Ever wondered why your home has a crawlspace? It's for the convenience of being able to hide plumbing, wiring, and other utilities and free up valuable space inside your home. Although this sounds like a good idea, plumbing is often prone to leaking. If a pipe were to burst inside the crawlspace, the moisture accumulation would slowly enter your home from below, sometimes without you knowing. Then, mold growth is sure to follow. Restoration 1's professional crawlspace encapsulation services are guaranteed to reduce the risk of moisture, mold, humidity, and pests from below your feet.

Common signs your crawlspace may have moisture issues include wood rot, sagging or wet insulation, termite damage under your home, hardwood floors 'cupping', visible mold growth in the crawl space, and condensation on ductwork.

Benefits of Crawlspace Encapsulation

Besides the main benefit of reducing the risk of moisture in your home, there are a few bonuses to encapsulating your crawlspace. Since encapsulation can maintain indoor temperatures more efficiently, you will be able to reduce your energy bill by about 20%. The cost of possible future crawlspace repairs, if proper ventilation and dehumidification are in place, will be vastly reduced as well. And, of course, having a closed-off crawlspace adds value to your home.

Restoration 1 can diagnose your crawlspace for moisture and mold issues and recommend and implement best practices in correcting any problems. Our crew is trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning & Restoration Certification (IICRC), and can address the moisture source and perform mold remediation where necessary. From repairs and vapor barriers to installing ventilation systems and dehumidifiers, we can put your mind at ease with a straightforward plan of action.

Advantages of Crawlspace Encapsulation

  • With moisture and humidity, your crawlspace can become a breeding ground for mold. By closing off the crawlspace, you can reduce both moisture and humidity inside and rid yourself of the worry of mold growth. Restoration 1 can pair encapsulation with a dehumidification system to stop mold from growing.
  • You'll save more money over the years as crawlspace encapsulation increases the energy efficiency of your home. Moreover, if the time ever comes to sell your home, encapsulation means you can leverage more money for the property.
  • Crawlspace encapsulation can also provide peace of mind – one of the most significant advantages. You no longer have to worry about mold creeping through the floorboards or water-borne pests that love the moisture invading your home.

Causes of Crawlspace Moisture

It is most likely that your crawlspace has exposed earth for a floor. This will easily increase the moisture levels in both the air and the sub-structure of your property. This is why a vapor barrier is so essential.

Unwanted rain or groundwater can easily enter your crawlspace if you don't have proper grading or rain gutters.

Poor ventilation is a big problem too; it creates a mix of warm and cool air which causes condensation. This boosts the moisture levels.

Solving Crawlspace Moisture Issues

Ensure you waterproof your building, both the interior and exterior.

By installing grading and gutters around your property, you will be able to direct moisture away from the building. Make sure to repair and clean these regularly too.

Install vapor barriers or encapsulation systems, these will separate the crawlspace from exposed earth.

Install ventilation, dehumidifiers, and/or ventilation fans. The fans will regulate moisture content by exchanging the crawlspace air with fresh air from outside. Dehumidifiers are good in very damp crawlspaces as they will remove excess moisture from the air.
