Does Crawl Space Encapsulation Increase Your Home's Value?

Does Crawl Space Encapsulation Increase Your Home's Value

Not many people understand the purpose of a crawlspace, which is a very useful part of a home. In areas where homes are termite-prone or where dampness is a constant issue, crawl spaces lift a home off the ground to avoid these problems. A crawl space also provides an area to house utility connections and plumbing pipes.

Crawl spaces also keep homes cooler because they enhance air circulation. While a crawl space is useful, it presents a potential problem with potential mold due to moisture. That means boxes and other porous materials stored in a crawl space can be easily damaged.

The solution is crawl space encapsulation. Varney Clean Care provides that option to residents of Worland, Cody, Powell and their surrounding communities in Wyoming.

What is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

As the name implies, this is the act of installing an encapsulating device, usually a vapor barrier, to prevent the buildup of moisture in the crawl space. Encapsulating this space with this material helps a home in more ways than one. Aside from keeping dampness at bay and stopping mold growth in its tracks, it provides more safe space for storage without the fear of damaging your items.

An encapsulated crawl space can add value to your home because of the benefits it provides. Crawl space encapsulation not only prevents moisture from penetrating your home, but it helps create more safe, secure storage space. It also offers these other benefits:

  • It stops bugs from invading your home. With crawl spaces touching the ground, that provides easy access for insects to enter your home. When you encapsulate the crawl space, you create a barrier against unwanted insects like termites, ants, roaches, and silverfish.
  • It reduces the chances for rodents, snakes, and vermin from entering your home.
  • It keeps humidity to a minimum.
  • It improves the air quality inside your home. When you can control the growth of molds and the entry of insects and pests into your home, you keep the contaminants that these unwanted visitors create from impacting the air that you breathe.

These are just some of the other benefits that you get from crawl space encapsulation. When your home has this, its value is sure to increase since it has a feature that helps make your home better and more habitable.
