Crawlspace Encapsulation Services for Residents of Decatur, GA
Sometimes, when a part of your home is “out of sight, out of mind,” what you don’t see can result in damages that will certainly get your attention. For instance, if you’ve noticed musty odors inside your home and your heating and cooling bills have been rising inexplicably, your crawlspace may be the problem—or, more specifically, excess moisture in your crawlspace. If not addressed, this problem could lead to other issues like mold growth, which can be a health hazard. Fortunately, even if your crawlspace has accumulated moisture, there’s an easy way to mitigate the issue and prevent it from reoccurring. At Engineered Solutions of Georgia, we offer crawlspace encapsulation services for homeowners through the Decatur, Georgia, area.
What Is Crawlspace Encapsulation?
When we encapsulate a crawlspace, we seal off your home’s crawlspace with a moisture barrier, a thick, tarp-like material also known as a vapor barrier. Applied to the ground beneath your home and along the inside walls of your foundation, this barrier prevents ground moisture from seeping through. We’ll also run a dehumidifier to rid the area of excess moisture, including floor beams and joists, and any other structural component that may have a high moisture content.
Our crawl space encapsulation service not only helps to prevent mold and mildew growth, but by eliminating moisture from the area, it makes the environment less hospitable to rodents and wood-destroying insects like termites.
