CS Benefits icon green

Benefits of crawl space encapsulation in the Upstate

Stopping mold and mildew growth and eliminating pests will prevent contaminants from getting into your ductwork and making your family sick, and this improvement in air quality is the #1 main benefit of crawl space encapsulation. Not only that, sealing that crawlspace delivers additional benefits like these:

Prevents Humidity and Rodents

With a sealed crawl space, rodents can’t get in and moisture can’t build up.

Increased HVAC System Lifespan

Your crawl space houses much of your HVAC equipment, and protecting that costly equipment from moisture and pests will increase its lifespan.

Improved System Efficiency

Once it isn’t battling moisture, dirt, mold, and other build-up, your HVAC unit will run more efficiently, keeping you cooler or warmer while using less energy.

Additional Storage Space

Your encapsulated crawl space can double as safe storage.

Decreased Energy Bills

Encapsulation lowers humidity levels while adding insulation in the winter months, so you may see your heating and cooling bills decrease.

Improved Longevity of Wood Structures

When you protect your wood from moisture, you protect it against rot and other types of water damage, so it has a longer lifespan. This applies to floor joists, other wooden supports, and even wood flooring on the first floor of your home!

Your Best Protection Against Greenville’s Humidity

If you’ve lived here for even one summer, you already know: the humidity in Upstate South Carolina is famously intense. And that’s a problem for homes built over a crawl space: high humidity allows moisture to infiltrate your crawl space, damaging your home’s foundation. Also, moisture in or under your home left unattended can cause dangerous mold or mildew growth. The crawl space is the most common place for moisture to get into your home, leaving you vulnerable to all sorts of decay and contaminant buildup.

Stop Pests from Accessing Your Home

Not only is humidity a risk from your crawl space, but so are pests. The crawl space is a warm, enclosed area, and a wide range of pests can make their way into it when they’re looking for a place to nest. At best, they will leave behind a mess in the crawl space. At worst, they can create structural damage and even make their way inside your home.

Our crawl space encapsulation process will help with this problem, too. When you seal off your crawl space, these critters can’t get inside.

How the Encapsulation Process Works

Professional crawl space waterproofing is known as crawl space encapsulation. This process starts with removing all moisture from the crawl space area using a dehumidifier underneath your home. Once the crawl space is dry, our team will address any mold or moisture damage.

Finally, we’ll install a system that seals or encapsulates the entire space—including several feet up the inside of your exterior walls. This moisture control measure prevents moisture from getting into your crawl space, and you’ll never have to worry about mold and water damage coming from your crawl space again.
