Does the crawl space beneath your Atlanta, GA home conjure images of a dank and musty medieval dungeon? With one call, the crawl space encapsulation specialists at Trinity Air Inc. can turn it into a clean, humidity-controlled space you can use.
What You Need to Know About Crawl Space Encapsulation
Crawl spaces are an integral part of many homes but are also a common source of trouble. Because they're in contact with the ground and often feature open vents, these spaces are susceptible to moisture intrusion. If they aren't adequately protected, they can also become a primary target for termites, rodents, and other pests.
Sadly, many homeowners aren't aware that there's an easy and cost-effective solution: crawl space encapsulation. Essentially, this process involves applying an airtight, vapor-proof polyethylene barrier to the walls, floor, and sometimes pillars in your crawl space. This treatment effectively seals out air and moisture, creating a more stable and controlled environment beneath your home.
Should You Insulate or Encapsulate Your Crawl Space?
Crawl space insulation is effective at blocking cold air, but it offers little protection against moisture. This is a serious problem, especially in the rainy and humid Atlanta, GA, area. A damp, humid crawl space is an ideal breeding ground for biological growth, fungi, termites, and other living organisms. It can also cause floor joists and other wood elements to swell, warp and rot at an accelerated pace. Needless to say, all of these issues can wreak havoc on your home. By encapsulating your crawl space, however, you can:
- Protect your house and foundation
- Inhibit biological contaminants
- Improve comfort and indoor air quality
- Prevent pest infestations
- Make your home more energy-efficient
- Boost the value of your property
