Crawlspace encapsulations have become a popular home improvement, eliminating moisture issues in the enclosed area. Up to 50% of a household’s airflow can go through a crawlspace. Crawlspace encapsulation and dehumidification (if needed) are known as significant contributors to improving indoor air quality.

What exactly is a crawlspace encapsulation?
One of the easiest ways to describe crawlspace encapsulation is to think of a pool liner. The job of both a pool liner and crawlspace encapsulation is to prevent leakage— in pools the water, in crawl spaces the water vapor. Your crawl space encapsulation consists of a water vapor barrier (not a water barrier)that covers the entire crawl space. Each section is sealed together so that the whole area has a lining that helps keep water vapor, moisture, and wood-destroying pests from entering your home. There are two common encapsulating services. Sealing entails encapsulation of the floor of your crawlspace. This encapsulation service typically goes up to 12” up the walls. Full encapsulation will include the walls, the ceiling and may consist of adding insulation, too.

Why is it essential to have a pest control company involved with encapsulation?
It is highly recommended that a pest control company be involved with the encapsulation process because wood-destroying pests can destroy your home. If there is standing water (sometimes referred to as bulk water) in your crawl space, you never want to start the encapsulation. Encapsulation places a vapor barrier down, not a water barrier. If you have standing water under your vapor barrier, it will find a way inside the boundary. You must take care of this type of water issue before encapsulating your crawl space. A pest control professional should examine the crawl space for moisture, which can attract wood-destroying insects. A professional will also inspect for cracks and holes in the foundation that mice, rats, and insects can use to enter the home. (Add any additional inspections that should be included). A pest control expert will determine if your crawl space is in proper condition to begin encapsulation. You need to remediate any problems; a professional can correct them. This inspection will prevent having to rip up the encapsulation to fix a pest issue later.
