Crawl Space Encapsulation Services in Charleston, South Carolina

Are you considering crawl space encapsulation? Or, perhaps you don’t even know what is but have been told your home might need it?

What is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

When it comes to avoiding indoor moisture issues, encapsulating crawl spaces, or at the very least sealing them, has become a popular solution to reduce the negative impact of excess moisture. We often explain to customers that crawl space encapsulation can be compared to adding lining to a swimming pool to avoid links. You don’t have to have a lining for your swimming pool, but it’s pretty silly not to have it.

Why is it Important To Add Crawl Space Encapsulation To My Home?

Considering the fact that up to 50% of household air can flow up from your crawl space, it is very important to keep your crawl space as clean and dry as possible. Water vapor enters your crawl space through the ground whether your house was built on a concrete slab or a crawlspace. By adding a crawl space vapor barrier and dehumidifier, you can dramatically improve your indoor air quality and make energy improvements inside your home.

When Should I Consider Crawl Space Encapsulation?

There are a lot of issues that can show up in your home as a result of water vapor and excess moisture. Since water vapor comes from the ground and can easily move through porous cement into your home, all homes can experience moisture issues. Here are common signs of excess moisture that lead people to sealing their crawl space:

  • Mold
  • Mildew/musty smell in basement
  • Soft or separating floors
  • High cooling costs
  • Wet insulation
  • Sweating windows
  • Insect problems

If you are experiencing one or more of these excess moisture signs, give Five Star Charleston a call. We will provide you with n crawl space encapsulation estimate and provide high quality dehumidifier products to regulate your crawl space’s moisture level.
