Do you know how Crawl Space encapsulation is done the correct way? With crawl space moisture involved?
Lots of homes have wet crawl spaces that, unfortunately, are ignored by contractors and homeowners alike; they represent that out-of-site / out-of-mind non-liveable part that is not even considered a part of your home or living environment. As we learn more about health in the home, we have learned that this is not the situation. You share the living atmosphere with your crawlspace.
Because warmth rises up in your home, the cool air from your crawl space is sucked up into your home, just similar to a chimney. Based on a standard home in the United States, the E.P.A. estimates that the air in your home is changed almost every hour and about 50% of that “new air” comes from a crawl space! That simply means that the quality of air within your home is greatly affected by the condition of your crawl space. It might be out-of-sight and out-of-mind, but it is a immense part of your living environment and quality of air that you and your kids breathe.
Most Crawlspace contractors can offer you a free of charge inspection and estimate in making your home a healthier environment.
