Mold & Moisture in your crawlspace?

If your basement or man cave has a funky mildew or mold smell that you just can’t seem to get rid of you may need your crawlspace encapsulated. Water seeps into your crawl space from excessive rain, flooding, or other issues and most likely you only cleaned what was visible. The water that was in the crawlspace remains and produces mold and other contaminants. 

Once the air in your crawlspace rises, it seeps into your home and brings all of those things with it. Did you know you would be breathing in all of that mold! That can explain why some people experience health effects when they go over to some people's homes. So if you’re wondering why you should get your crawlspace encapsulated here are a few reasons:

  1. To reduce moisture/mold in your air - to improve air quality
  2. To protect your home from mold
  3. To avoid flooring damage - the vapor can rot the wood frames and floorings that make up the structure of the house.
