Rainwater and groundwater can enter a crawlspace and cause mold growth, attract insects, and harm your home's air quality. Hence, crawl spaces that are vented do not prevent moisture from accumulating, and this is where crawl space encapsulation comes in. This method seals your crawlspace by lining the foundation walls and the floor with heavy polyethylene plastic sheets that are sealed with tape.
Crawlspace encapsulation can also be done by insulating the wall foundations and utilizing any existing HVAC systems to cool and heat the crawlspace to the right temperature. These methods could improve the effectiveness of encapsulating the crawlspace. The results is a dry crawlspace that can improve your home's structural integrity, increase energy savings and comfort levels in the house, and minimize or prevent further mold and pest infestation.
Wet soil can compromise the foundation of the house, and this is why gutter systems are installed to drive water away from the home. However, a constantly wet crawlspace can be caused by poor gutter systems. Hence, it makes sense to consider correcting gutters, crawl space encapsulation and other ways to keep your crawlspace dry (such installing a dehumidifier).
