Crawl Space Encapsulation Services for Homeowners in Roswell, GA
Have you noticed a musty odor in your home that you just can’t seem to pinpoint the source of? Well, if your home has a crawl space beneath it, there’s a good chance the smell could be coming from there. Many homes in the Roswell, Georgia, area have a crawl space beneath the floor that becomes a breeding ground for mold, mildew, insects, and other rodents. As moisture emanates up from the ground beneath the home, it collects in this warm, dark area, making it the perfect place for fungus to thrive and for critters to take up residence.
If you suspect that things are lurking beneath at your Roswell residence, it’s time to call the professionals at Engineered Solutions of Georgia. We offer crawl space encapsulation services that can help you reclaim this hidden portion of your home so that you will no longer have to deal with musty odors from mold growth and other pests.
What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation involves sealing off your home’s crawl space with a vapor barrier so that moisture will no longer collect there. A vapor barrier—also known as a moisture barrier—is a thick, tarp-like material made of polyethylene. To encapsulate a crawl space, we’ll first run a dehumidifier to rid the area of excess moisture. Once the humidity level is down, we’ll install a vapor barrier on the ground beneath your home and on the inside of your foundation walls. The vapor barrier is held in place by heavy-duty tape to ensure a tight seal that will prevent ground moisture from seeping through.
In some cases, moisture also enters the crawl space through cracks in a home’s foundation. During your initial consultation, we’ll perform a thorough assessment of your crawl space and foundation to determine if additional foundation repair work is needed.
