Crawl Space Encapsulation can be a major improvement to homes with dirt floor Crawl Spaces. The old way of thinking was that homes needed the space below to vent. It is now known that this creates many serious health and structural issues. If the underside of your home is vented, it is also letting humidity and moisture in. This can create Mold, Mildew and a Musty odor. An unsealed Crawl Space can also let moisture in the home from water entering through the foundation or directly from the damp soil below. One of the greatest health risks to residents of a home with a Crawl Space is mold which can grow at an alarming rate in an unsealed crawl space .
