When you build a house, it doesn’t sit directly on the ground. It sits on a basement, cement slab, or crawl space that provides a barrier between your home and the soil. Because of North Carolina’s very damp soil, crawl spaces tend to be the most common choice in our region.
A properly built, ventilated, and maintained crawl space will protect your home from moisture issues and pest problems. Additionally, a crawl space provides easy access to HVAC units and water and sewer pipes.
Unfortunately, not all crawl spaces are created equal. If you are dealing with crawl space issues, ProForce Waterproofing is here to help. We offer crawl space encapsulation in Charlotte and provide homeowners with a long-lasting barrier of protection between the ground and your home.
Why Crawl Space Encapsulation Matters
There are many reasons why crawl space encapsulation matters, including:
Air quality: Properly encapsulated crawl spaces only allow clean air to circulate under your home.
Excess moisture: Encapsulated crawl spaces provide moisture control and prevent excess moisture from seeping into your home. They also help to control humidity levels.
Pests: Properly sealed crawl spaces will provide a barrier of protection against many pests, including wood-eating pests like termites.
Energy costs: An encapsulated crawl space provides insulation and helps your home maintain its temperature in weather extremes.
Crawl space encapsulation is one of the best ways to maintain the structure of your home. For more helpful information about crawl space encapsulation, reach out today.
The Perils Of Moisture And Pests In Crawl Spaces
Big problems can occur when moisture and pests are allowed to infiltrate a crawl space. Both can cause significant damage to the structure of your home. Excess moisture under your home will lead to problems with mold, mildew, fungus, and wood rot. Many common household pests are attracted to moisture, so a damp crawl space provides pests like ants, spiders, cockroaches, and termites with the perfect place to call home.
When wood-eating pests like termites find a way into your home, their feeding habits and the excessive moisture that has attracted them are a one-two punch against a home’s structure. Keep pests and moisture out of your home with the help of crawl space encapsulation.
The Benefits Of Crawl Space Encapsulation
Encapsulating your home’s crawl space is the most effective way to control your home's humidity levels. Proper ventilation and installing dehumidifiers and sump pumps will go a long way in protecting the structure of your home and the comfort of your family.
Crawl space encapsulation ensures that only clean, dry air circulates under your home. Other benefits of a properly encapsulated crawl space are that you will have a clean storage space, reduced heating and cooling costs, and added value to your home.
