Out of sight, out of mind. It’s easy to forget about what may be going on in your crawl space. After all, we only dare venture into our crawl space when there is some sort of problem. While humans don’t consider crawl spaces to be living spaces, that doesn’t hold true for bugs and critters. Bugs, raccoons, and other critters find crawl spaces to be luxury accommodations for nesting and avoiding the outdoor elements.
But your crawl space is as important to your home as your kitchen and bedroom. When bad things happening in your crawl space, particularly excess moisture build-up, the health of your home and of your family can be significantly impacted. While you may want to forget about your crawl space, your crawl space doesn’t forget about you. Whatever evils are going on in your crawl space will find their way into every nook and cranny of the living spaces of your home. If the humidity level in the crawlspace is high, there will be high humidity in your living space as well. Likewise, if there is mold or mildew in the crawlspace, there will likely be mold, mildew, and musty odors throughout the home.
Proactive prevention of moisture problems through encapsulation is often the best choice for homeowners. It’s a cost-effective way to ensure your home’s foundation stays dry and clean. With crawl space encapsulation, you’ll protect your investment while, at the same time, making your home a healthier, more enjoyable, more comfortable dwelling for you and your family.
