Your crawl space is highly vulnerable to humidity and moisture. Water that seeps in can serve as a breeding ground for pests, mold, odor, wood rot, and poor air quality.
This affects your quality of life as well as the value of your home. By doing a crawl space encapsulation you add a vapor barrier and avoid letting mold, rot, and structural problems in your crawl space extend to every part of your house. In most homes you can even turn your crawl space into a clean and dry storage area.
A neglected crawl space can cause health problems
Up to 40% of the air in your living area comes from your crawl space. If your experience foul odors in the home or heightened allergies or asthma symptoms, moisture in your crawl space could be the reason. When mold grows it releases mycotoxins that can seep through the floor boards and cause sickness.
A damp and wet crawl space is a hospitable environment for spiders, mice, rats, snakes, insects, termites and other pests. Pathogens from rodent droppings and urine can reach you through air circulation from the crawl space.
Health problems that can be caused by moisture and pests in your crawl space are, among others: Asthma, allergies, coughing and wheezing, and eye irritation.
