What is a crawlspace encapsulation – A crawl space encapsulation is an effective method of preventing indoor moisture into your home. It is a procedure that involves using a thick plastic crawl space vapor barrier, to completely cover the interior of your crawl space. They can vary in different thicknesses and quality. Depending on the vapor barrier used this will determine how long it will last and be effective. In addition, the vapor barrier is installed by completely covering the crawlspace. This includes laying it out over floors, walls, and sometimes the ceiling of your crawl space.
Once the vapor barrier has been sealed a dehumidifier is typically installed. A dehumidifier is a piece of equipment that helps to take the excess moisture out of the air. For instance, parts of the country that are excessively humid, this piece of equipment is a necessity.
