Unsealed VS. Sealed Crawl Space

An unsealed crawl space opens your home to pests, stinky odors, and water. Additionally, water, mildew, and high humidity could lead to the development of mold and spores circulating throughout your home. 50% of the air you breathe in the upper levels of your home comes from the basement or crawlspace. You don’t want to be breathing hazardous odors or mold that could negatively affect your health. When you ignore these problems, pests could enter your home, mold formation will only continue, you’ll have rotting wooden floor joists, and problems could result. Luckily, we have one of the best crawl space encapsulation services in Wisconsin. We can permanently protect your wet, damp, or flooded crawl space.

What is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Crawl space encapsulation is, by definition, sealing your crawl space from the outside elements of pests, moisture, and air. A crawlspace is a cost-cutting measure by most builders. Therefore, crawl spaces are filled with soil, gravel, and cheap plastic. Furthermore, a crawl space exists for access to wiring, pipes, and ducts. However, an encapsulated crawl space happens when all vents and doors to the outside are sealed. With a reinforced poly vapor barrier, your home benefits from keeping harmful elements out. Along with encapsulation, we recommend a crawl space dehumidifier to circulate air and maintain proper humidity. There is no other company in Illinois with our level of commitment, experience, and excellence.
