Why Crawlspace Encapsulation in Pawtucket Is Better for Your Home

Crawlspace Encapsulation in Pawtucket

  • Date: 07-2021

If you’re worried about mold growth inside your home, your crawlspace is one of the first places you’ll want to protect. Crawlspaces are prone to moisture, and they can allow mold to grow unnoticed for months at a time. At Green Home Solutions, our crawlspace encapsulation services give homeowners in Pawtucket an effective and affordable solution to this problem.

In an encapsulated crawlspace, the walls and floors are covered by an impermeable layer of plastic. This plastic lining creates a watertight environment, blocking moisture from entering the crawlspace. Most importantly, encapsulation stops ground vapor—a common source of excess moisture and humidity inside crawlspaces.

In addition to stopping mold, encapsulation offers other benefits to your crawlspace and your home. Below, we’ve outlined three reasons why homeowners in Pawtucket choose crawlspace encapsulation.

The Advantages of Crawlspace Encapsulation

Increased Energy Efficiency. When you encapsulate your crawlspace, you aren’t simply blocking moisture. You’re also preventing heat transfer. The sealed environment stops air leakage, which makes your home’s heating and cooling systems more efficient. The result is a greener home and smaller energy bills.

Improved Structural Integrity. Moisture in your crawlspace doesn’t only lead to mold. It can also result in serious damage from dry rot or pests like termites. If this damage occurs to load-bearing elements, it can put the structural integrity and value of your home at risk. By controlling moisture with encapsulation, you can avoid costly damage to your home.

Cleaner, Healthier Air. In many homes, upwards of 50% of the air indoors is filtered through the crawlspace. This means that if the air in your crawlspace is polluted, the air in your home will be too. On top of mold spores, moisture in your crawlspace can lead to a number of other pollutants, including bacteria and airborne toxins from pest droppings. With crawlspace encapsulation, you and your family can breathe easy.
