Most homes in North Carolina and South Carolina were built with a crawl space underneath. A crawlspace is a narrow area between the ground and the first floor of a house. It is typically unfinished, with a dirt floor. In some cases, it can be as narrow as 2-ft. x 2-ft., just enough room to crawl around inside — hence the name.
Believe it or not, if you have a crawl space, about half of the air in your home comes up from your crawl space. Therefore, it’s essential to keep this space underneath your home as dry and clean as possible. Adding a vapor barrier and dehumidifier in your crawl space is the best way to protect your home from health, comfort, and safety problems caused by crawl space moisture.
We can help! At ACME Pest Control, we can encapsulate your crawl space. We can seal your crawl space from the outside air to prevent moisture and air quality issues.
Crawl space encapsulation involves placing a barrier on the surfaces of your crawl space: floors, walls, and perhaps also the ceiling. This barrier usually consists of heavy-duty polyethylene sheeting, which helps control the amount of moisture in the space.
Limiting this moisture not only reduces your risks of growth, rot, and water damage, it will improve your home’s overall air quality and energy efficiency.
