Crawl Space Encapsulation Athens GADo you know that 50% of your indoor air flows from the crawl space? If the crawl space is dirty and polluted, so does your home. Crawl space encapsulation is a popular solution to keep your crawl spaces in the best shape. You can compare it to adding a lining to avoid leaks in your swimming pool. We use a heavy-duty polyethylene barrier to cover your crawl space- from the floors to the foundation walls and ceilings. There are different reasons to schedule crawl space encapsulation in Athens, GA. This includes the risks of mold growth, pests and insect infestation, high heating and cooling costs, foundation cracks, radon gas, musty odors, and keeping moisture at the proper level. Dealing with all these things is complicated and expensive, so it’s better to schedule a crawl space encapsulation if you have the chance. Crawl space moisture control also works best with vapor barriers, insulations, and crawl space dehumidifiers.

Crawl space encapsulation starts with a critical assessment of your property’s vented crawl space. Then, we will clean the surfaces by removing old insulations, eliminating pests, fixing cracks, and resolving moisture issues in the area. We then spray foam insulation to cover cracks, holes, and gaps on external pipes and ducts. Once done, the application of a heavy-duty plastic vapor barrier starts. From the floor to the walls, we make sure that the sections are held together and secured to prevent gaps. Then, we recommend installing a crawl space dehumidifier to keep moisture levels at a consistent level all year-round. Our licensed pest control professionals have been dealing with crawl space issues for many years, and we are known to deliver exceptional service to our residential and commercial clients in Athens, GA.

Crawl Space Vapor Barrier

Crawl Space Inspection Athens GAInstalling a vapor barrier is also an effective method of improving the health of your property. Vapor barrier involves laying down 6mm black plastic throughout the crawl space floor. The vents are not sealed, so there is no need to install a dehumidifier, and you’re also not required to install a sump pump. If crawl space encapsulations sound too expensive for you, you can opt for crawl space vapor barriers instead. Here are some of the benefits you can enjoy:

Crawl space vapor barriers allow for easy access to your crawl space. If anything needs to be done in the crawl space like pipe repair or wiring maintenance, work will go smoothly, and things will be done fast. It also reduces the risk of electric dangers, mold infestation, pets, and other threats. Since crawl space vapor barriers keep the area clean, you can use the crawl space as an extension of your storage room.

Do you know that moisture seeping into the crawl space can cause the indoor temperature to fluctuate? As a result, you have to adjust thermostats once in a while to reach the comfort you require. Unfortunately, this has a significant impact on your energy bill. You might end slashing a considerable portion of your budget to pay for your energy consumption. With vapor barriers, your space will be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter without overworking your heating and cooling systems.

Crawl spaces are very close to the ground, making it easier for moisture to creep up into your home. Vapor barriers serve as the buffer between the ground and your home, diffusing most of the moisture, so it will remain in the soil and not reach your property.  

Moisture can trigger the growth of mold and mildew, which are harmful to your health and cause structural damage. It can also cause rusting and corrosion of your ductwork or HVAC components. A dirty crawl space is also a perfect breeding ground for pests which are silent property destroyers.  Installing vapor barriers can help reduce the chances of these threats and improve the longevity of your home or building.
