Crawlspace Encapsulation Protects Your Home
Our encapsulation method is a tried and true way of protecting your home from mold and mildew. First, we need to determine if some form of conditioning will be needed to prepare the crawlspace for encapsulation. For example, if there is sitting water in the crawlspace, that will need to be addressed before we can move on to the next step.
The next step of the process is to begin the encapsulation by installing our vapor barrier. This barrier is basically a lining of plastic that goes under your home in the crawlspace. We cover both the walls and the floors with different plastics to better suit their condition. A thinner 6mm plastic is used on the walls and a more durable 10mm plastic is used on the floor.
Since this is an encapsulation method, we cover all walls and floors of your crawlspace. This ensures that no vapors enter your home. After the walls and floors are covered in plastic, we then completely tape all of the seams of the plastic sheeting. This ensures that the encapsulation will thoroughly protect your home from continuing damage.
