Did you know that mold can affect your indoor air quality? One of the most effective ways to protect your crawl space from moisture and water damage (and the mold that often comes with it!) is by investing in encapsulation. This process has many benefits, including keeping your crawl space dry and keeping dangerous pests like termites out of your home.
Crawl space encapsulation refers to the installation of a heavy-duty vapor barrier in your crawl space to protect your home from water damage, mold damage, and pests. An encapsulated crawl space is far more effective at controlling moisture than a vented crawl space.
If water does pool inside your encapsulated crawl space, a dedicated dehumidifier is your best line of defense. Not only does a dehumidifier respond to changing conditions, but it also eliminates the risk of airflow imbalance in your home.
