What is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation is one of the most effective ways of preventing damages caused by indoor moisture. The process involves using a thick plastic crawl space vapor barrier to completely cover the interior of your crawl space. This barrier will be laid out over the floors and walls of your crawl space. Once the area has been sealed, a dehumidifier is typically installed in the encapsulated crawl space to further prevent excess moisture.
