Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl Space Encapsulation Services in Durango, Farmington, Cortez, and Pagosa Springs

When your home includes a crawl space or basement, you have plenty of options available, depending on your foundation type. There are crawl spaces that are vented towards the outdoors, but lately, crawl space encapsulation has been seen as a more environmental and energy-efficient option.

The act of crawl space encapsulation is seen as a much better way of getting rid of moisture problems that result from having vented crawl spaces. If your crawl space or basement is one that suffers from chronic dirt, humidity and mold, then you should consider getting crawl space encapsulation, as that will surely be the best gift you can give to yourself and your home.

What Happens During Encapsulation

Technology separates the crawl space from the ground using a vapor barrier, creating another layer of protection between the building and the outside. Having your crawl space encapsulated instead of leaving it vented is an opportunity to reduce your heating bills and to keep your home energy-efficient.

But before you can get your crawl space encapsulated, it's always a good idea to thoroughly have your crawl space cleaned, because if there are any vermin or fungi left behind, they will just destroy the seal around the vapor barrier.

Afterwards, check if your crawl space is sealed against moisture, by laying down some plastic liner - but don't go for just any old, cheap plastic liner. By choosing low-grade liner, you won't prevent humidity and mold from growing, so get the best that you can afford immediately.

Crawl space encapsulation wants to prolong and protect the life of your crawl space by reducing temperature and humidity levels so that no termites, dust mites, mold or other pests will want to move inside. Another bonus is that it drastically improves the air quality found in your crawl space, basement and throughout the rest of your home.

If you have a crawl space with bulk water problems, or have atmospheric combustion appliances, make sure to fix the water problem and get sealed combustion, or non-combustion (perhaps some electrical) models. If you happen to encounter water problems, the first place you should always check is the bad drainage outside. Depending on how bad it is, you may need to have a perimeter drain and sump pump installed inside your crawl space.
