Crawl Space Encapsulation

The Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation is the process of adding heavy-duty polyethylene sheeting to your crawl space floors and foundation walls. By encapsulating your crawl space, you keep that space cleaner and drier than it typically would be. This process also prevents the buildup of mold, wood rot, pest infestations and can increase your home’s energy efficiency! There are many benefits to crawl space encapsulation. At Americover, we recommend crawl space encapsulation to ensure our customers are doing everything they can to keep their homes safe and secure. 

Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

  • Improves air quality 
    • Crawl space encapsulation promotes cleaner air circulating throughout your home. Crawl spaces are breeding grounds for moisture and mold, so by sealing off your crawl space you prevent moisture from accumulating and mold forming. This will provide you and your household with cleaner air to breathe.
  • Eliminates Pest Infestation
    • Pests like termites, rodents, and spiders love to live in damp and dark spaces, making your crawl space their ideal home.  Crawl space encapsulation deters any pests from entering the area and makes it, so the conditions of your crawl space are no longer viable for them to call home. 
  • Prevents Mold and Mildew
    • Mold and mildew thrive when moisture is in the picture so crawl space encapsulation is especially effective when dealing with humid environments. This process also eliminates musty and wet odors from entering your home!
