Crawlspace Remediation Is Essential for the Health of a House and Its Occupants
The old phrase, “out of sight, out of mind,” definitely holds true for those areas of your homes that you do not visit daily. The crawlspace is probably one of the last places that you think about, until it begins to cause you alarm. Dampness, strange smells, and dark corners are not inviting in the least. Unfortunately, if not properly addressed, these issues will seep into those very areas of your home where you spend most of your time. Crawlspace remediation, however, rectifies all crawlspace threats with an encapsulated environment that promotes a healthy environment for all concerned.
Crawlspace remediation, also known as encapsulation, indeed offers many benefits to the well-being of a home’s occupants. For starters, encapsulation can lead to lower energy bills and cleaner air, but remediation also clears up the other environmental problems that are inherent with a crawlspace location.
Water is one of the most destructive forces to a home’s security, and this natural force definitely makes itself known in the crawlspace. Not only does water erode the foundation of a home, but it also breeds mold and mildew; as a result, many people are sickened by these unseen forces in their own homes. The home’s health is also threatened though as floors become softened, insulation becomes saturated, and rodents and pests move in because they are attracted to these very conditions.
Encapsulating the crawl space, fortunately, eradicates all of these dangers. The appropriate dehumidification system coupled with proper insulation will keep the moisture in check so that all the problems that flow from it will also be staunched. An encapsulated crawlspace is a well-ventilated, clean environment that you won’t hesitate to visit, but it also helps your home work more efficiently and safely for your whole family.
