Crawl space encapsulation Crawl space encapsulation turns a damp, moldy crawl space into a clean and dry space where mold can’t grow.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Did you know the condition of your crawl space affects the environment of your living space upstairs? It’s true. A damp, musty crawl space can cause mold and indoor air quality issues in your home or business. The good news is you can combat the threat of water and moisture by sealing off your crawl space. That is essentially what crawl space encapsulation does.

Water and condensation can easily infiltrate your crawl space. This is because crawl space floors are usually dirt or gravel. They are occasionally concrete. Groundwater can seep up through the floor, and vents or cracks in the foundation can allow rainwater in. Your crawl space may house plumbing, HVAC, and other utilities which can cause additional condensation. It can also help your HVAC work more efficiently meaning a warmer home and lower heating bills.


What Does Crawl Space Encapsulation Cost?

Costs for crawl space encapsulation with Value Dry Waterproofing can vary greatly depending on the size of the space, the issues you’re having, and how much you choose to address in your service. Our inspectors work with our customers to determine the best solution for your needs and budget. Our process includes:

  • The initial inspection (free)
  • Removing and disposing of debris in the crawl space
  • Resolving water infiltration issues
  • Installing a vapor barrier on the floor and walls
  • Conditioning the air with a ventilation system

The size of your home and the extent of the water infiltration problem will help determine your final cost.

Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

The benefits to crawl space encapsulation include the ability to:

  • Reduce moisture and mustiness
  • Reduces likelihood danger of mold
  • Increase energy efficiency
  • Improve air quality
  • Reduce insects and other pests

It is very important to keep the air quality in the crawl space as safe as the rest of your home. That’s because the air in the crawl space will rise with warmer air and enter your home. The air in the crawl space will also enter your home via ductwork and HVAC systems that reside in the crawl space. So if your crawl space is filled with mold, mildew, and standing water, you are breathing that in.
