If you have a crawlspace, you will need waterproofing and encapsulation to help protect it. This process involves placing a vapor barrier over the foundation and the floor of the crawlspace to keep any outside air out and to keep dampness in. If your crawlspace isn't encapsulated, it will be prone to moisture leaks and mold spores, which can promote the growth of mold and have a negative impact on your family's health. The vapor barrier serves as a physical shield positioned around the crawlspace to keep the moisture where it belongs and away from the rest of your home. This means the vapor barrier must cover the entire foundation and floor to be the most effective.
While it's important to keep exterior moisture out of the crawlspace, you also need to make sure any air inside the space remains dry. If you want your crawlspace encapsulation to work properly, you need to find a way to remove any moisture from the air. The best way to do this is with the use of a crawlspace dehumidifier. We offer patented crawlspace dehumidifiers like the Humid-Evac, which is guaranteed to keep your crawlspace free of moisture.
