Moisture Issues Are a Thing of the Past

If you have a wet crawl space in your home and haven’t had crawl space encapsulation done, you likely have seen the effects of moisture issues and maybe even mold.

Not every home has a crawl space, so if you are newly buying one that has one, look into crawl space encapsulation to help prevent problems or stop ones that are already there. When you start to do your research on these under home crawl spaces, you will see that there are a lot of problems that can develop when moisture gets into this area and is not eradicated right away. A few common issues that might develop over time would be: too much humidity, musty or dirty odor, issues with the structure of the home over time, mold, and wood rot. All of these problems come with their own extensive issues, so it is important to get it taken care of as quickly as possible so that no more damage is done and most importantly, the problems do not carry over into the inside of your home. When you eliminate the humidity or are able to lower it down to around 50%, you will be able to regulate moisture levels and the risk of developing mold, significantly. Having a basement encapsulation done will also help to improve your energy efficiency inside of your home significantly as well.
