Some homeowners might assume that an encapsulation system is a frivolous investment that provides little value. This attitude can lead homeowners to neglect their crawlspace, resulting in serious structural damage and repair costs.
Organic materials like wood, cardboard, insulation, and paper are perfect breeding grounds for mold. If a crawlspace is flooded or subjected to excess humidity, mold can wreak havoc on those items. Left unchecked, mold flourishes, creating more mold and leading to the slow destruction of the area. Mold creates odors, which creep upstairs and into main living areas. Residents may experience allergies, migraines, respiratory upset, and other physical ailments from the presence of mold in a home.
If enough moisture accumulates, structural support systems like floor joists and wooden beams can begin to rot and shift, creating issues like stuck doors and windows, springy floors, and cracked walls. This can lead to expensive and disruptive repairs to the home.
Our CleanSpace crawlspace liner protects crawlspaces from the destructive influences of humidity, flooding, mold, and rot. The liner is resilient and tear-resistant, and it comes with a 25-year warranty. With our system installed, water never gets an opportunity to settle on vulnerable areas. The liner also serves as passive protection against radon, which can have massively detrimental impacts on physical health. Coupled with our dehumidifier system, the liner provides exceptional moisture and radon protection.
