Prevent flooding damage
Although sump pumps will assist you with preventing problems that the gradual build-up of water in a basement /crawlspace can cause, they really show their usefulness when dealing with large-scale flooding
Improves the comfort of your floors
With crawl space encapsulation, the temperature of your home's hardwood and tile floors will be more comfortable to walk on, especially during winter months. Encapsulation also keeps your home from feeling wet and humid during the hot summer months.
Increases energy efficiency
When your heating and air conditioning unit doesn't have to fight damp air created by a moist crawl space, it functions with less energy, which decreases your monthly utility bills. Note: crawl space encapsulation pays for itself over time due to the increased energy efficiency it provides your home.
Thwarts structural damage
For the long-term stability of your home's foundation, it's vital to prevent moisture from accumulating in your crawl space. When you prevent dampness from gathering in your crawl space, you also prevent it from seeping through to the dirt which surrounds your home's foundation. Gutters aim water away from your home's foundation, but a moist crawl space under your home can cause trouble. Crawl space encapsulation helps prevent moisture retention and makes your foundation more stable for years.
Prevents mold and mildew issues
Unwanted moisture issues are prevented when moisture is eliminated from under your home. And no musty, wet odors will enter your home from your heating and air conditioning unit.
Increases healthy living conditions
No one wants to get sick from spending time in their own home. Encapsulating a home's crawl space makes the home a healthier place to live and breathe.
Eliminates insect infestation
Insects including termites need moisture to survive. Crawl space encapsulations eliminate the possibility of creating conditions that welcome pests such as termites. Avoid the threat of insect infestation, significant damage, and the hassle pests cause by simply addressing your crawl space needs with professional encapsulation.
