Encapsulated Crawl Space. Encapsulated Crawl Space

Crawl spaces are predisposed to moisture, dampness and humidity, which make them a suitable environment for mold, mildew and wood rot. Homes that are built on crawlspaces experience moisture evaporation from the ground, which causes humidity in the home. This high level of humidity in crawl spaces causes mold, mildew and foul odors not only in the crawl space, but also throughout the house. In addition, moisture and wood rot cause structural problems, such as sagging beams and floor joists, which are very common problems for Wyoming homeowners with crawl spaces.

Crawl Space Encapsulation with Vapor Barrier

Many Worland, Wyoming homeowners install crawl space encapsulation systems and see immediate positive results. Crawl space encapsulation systems with vapor barrier reduce moisture and improve the environment of the crawl space as well as the entire home. Other than moisture prevention, crawl space encapsulation also eliminates musty odors that are intensified as moisture levels increase. When humidity in the crawl space is kept below 50-55%, foul odors due to mold are eliminated. In addition, wood rot and wood-boring insects, such as termites and carpenter ants, are eliminated as well. By installing a vapor barrier, the crawlspace environment is controlled for moisture, humidity, structural problems, mold and odors. The result is that circulating odors and air quality throughout the house is greatly improved. Yet another benefit to a crawl space encapsulation system is that once the vapor barrier is installed and crawl space vents are sealed, heating bills will decrease, floors will be warm and pipes will not freeze during wintertime.

Varney Clean Care are the Crawl Space Encapsulation Experts

At Varney Clean Care we employ only highly trained and experienced installers for crawl space waterproofing and repair. Our reputation is backed by our work and our customers’ satisfaction. We are committed to providing our crawl space expertise and solutions to your crawl space moisture problems.

The Complete Crawl Space Solution

The best solution we found to prevent moisture problems is the crawl space encapsulation system with a vapor barrier, which is a sturdy seven-layer polyethylene liner material that is very durable and installs across the floor, up the walls and around pipes. It addresses moisture problems in an environmentally sound and efficient manner and is a quality product we confidently use and recommend.

Crawl Space Encapsulation Results

The method we use is to literally encase the crawl space with the vapor barrier, close all crawl space vents and condition the crawl space. This method is recommended by top crawl space experts as well as engineers, building scientists, and government agencies and is backed by the latest housing research. The results are immediate and drastic. There is significant reduction in humidity, which results in marked improvement of air quality and musty odor elimination throughout the crawl space and the home. Visually, the appearance of the crawl space is striking: it is neat and bright. Our homeowners can use the previously unused damp, humid and often moldy area as a clean, temperature–regulated storage space. Homeowners also have the added benefit of energy efficiency and reduced energy bills. The elimination of fungus and mold, as well as pest and insect control, are natural results of reduced moisture and humidity.

Crawl Space Encapsulation Benefits via Vapor Barrier Installation

The installation of a quality crawl space vapor barrier is necessary for a healthy home. Crawl space encapsulation systems lower moisture and humidity, allowing for the following benefits:

  • Mold and Odor Prevention
    An uninsulated crawl space has a high degree of moisture. Installing a vapor barrier reduces moisture greatly, preventing mold and foul odors from forming in the crawl space and traveling into the rest of the house.
  • Insect and Rodent Elimination
    Moisture in the crawl space attracts wood-boring pests and insects that feed on and destroy wood substructure. These insects attract rodents, such as mice and rats, who feed on these insects. As crawl space moisture and humidity problems are eliminated via the encapsulation system, pest and rodent infestation and resulting wood rot are eradicated as well.
  • Energy Efficiency
    High moisture levels in crawl spaces impact temperature throughout the house. The installed vapor barrier seals the crawl space, controlling moisture and allowing energy efficiency and lower energy bills.
  • Crawl Space Insulated Floors
    The moisture from the floor of the crawl space rises to the first floor of the home. Insulated crawl spaces control temperature in the home throughout the year.
  • Frozen and Burst Pipe Protection
    Crawl space insulation prevents pipes from freezing and bursting in wintertime.
  • Temperature Regulated Storage Space Addition
    Vapor barrier installation allows for the crawl space to be utilized as a clean and dry storage space.
