Encapsulate Your Crawl Space.
Crawl space encapsulation is a process used to safeguard homes and buildings from issues including mold, dirt, rodent infestation, and humidity. If your crawl space is damp, moldy, damaged, or infested Best Attic Cleaning can work to restore your space to its normal function and protect your home’s structure for the future.
There are many benefits in owning an encapsulated crawl space. For starters, crawl space encapsulation one of the greatest energy-saving processes currently on the market, and is the most efficient way to preventatively prepare your building against future disasters. Home and business owners who encapsulate their crawl space save a great deal of money on heating costs as well.
Modern day crawl space encapsulation is applied through the use of vapor barrier technology which creates an envelope of protection between the crawl space and the outdoor elements. This technology provides a longer lasting defense against disaster and can be installed in both new homes and old. With Best Attic Cleaning the insulation can take place quickly with minimal disruption to your life.
Before encapsulating a crawl space several steps should be taken.
- First, rodents and insects should be completely removed from the premises. These creatures can compromise the barrier and spoil the whole installation process.
- Secondly, you should check for any mold or moisture in crawl space. These two problems need to be addressed prior to the laying of any barrier, as they can damage the seal.
- Keep in mind that a moldy/moistened crawl space can lead to serious foundational issues down the road, and should be taken care of as soon as possible.
