Crawl space encapsulation is one way to solve the problems of odors and moisture in a crawl space. Crawl space encapsulation includes installing a 12 mil polypropolene sheet on the ground. This plastic sheet is sometimes referred to a a "crawl space liner" or a "crawl space moisture barrier." Full encapsulation also includes 10 mil polyoropolene sheets that wrap the columns and walls of the crawl space. This barrier will prevent the warm, humid air from entering the crawl space and will help you keep your home free from pollutants and toxins.
There is a difference in crawl space encapsulation companies. For example, as part of our encapsulation service, we always install a new crawl space door, and we generally install a dehumidifier. If needed, we also can install a sump pump and/or an evacuation vent fan.
Our crawl space encapsulation service has a 20 year warranty on materials and a 10 year warranty on craftsmanship.
At The Clean Air Company, we are a crawl space encapsulation company that knows "one size does not fit all." Every home is different, of course, and your home might not require a total encapsulation like the photos above. Sometimes, simply making sure that the ground in the crawl space is covered with a continuous, thick vapor barrier is all that is needed. Learn more about our vapor barrier installation service.
