Crawl Space Encapsulation Experts Serving the Vinings, GA, Area
One of the common problems that homeowners in the Vinings, Georgia, area experience is moisture accumulating in their crawl space. Most often, this moisture emanates up from the ground, especially in areas with a high water table or low-lying areas. Other times, moisture can accumulate from humid air collecting in the crawl space. While a little moisture may not seem like a big deal, it can actually cause major issues to your home’s foundation and substructure. Moisture can lead to mold and mildew growth, which can cause unpleasant smells and affect the air quality in your home. It can also cause your wooden floor joists and beams to rot, which can compromise your home’s structural integrity.

How Crawl Space Encapsulation Works
Crawl space encapsulation is the process of sealing off a crawl space to prevent moisture from getting inside. This is done by installing a heavy-duty, tarp-like material called a moisture barrier or vapor barrier. During the crawl space encapsulation process, a dehumidifier is used to rid the crawl space of excess moisture. We’ll even check the floor joists, beams, and other wooden structures to ensure their moisture content is not excessive. We will remove any debris or unnecessary material such as old, ineffective insulation that may be retaining moisture. We’ll also inspect the perimeter of your crawl space, looking for any signs of foundation damage that may be allowing water to enter. Once the crawl space is clear and all entry points have been properly sealed up, we will apply the vapor barrier to the floor and walls of your crawl space to provide an effective shield against moisture emanation.
