We perform crawl space encapsulation in Lexington, SC, so you can have a dry crawl space that’s free from moisture and other problems.
It is not uncommon to have a crawl space if you have a home in Lexington, SC. This is an alternative to a basement or the home being built directly on a slab. It is a better solution than a slab, as it puts your home up off the ground, and it is less costly than a full basement, making it a common option. Crawl spaces make it easy to access duct work, plumbing and such, but often they can become damp. The typical construction of a crawl space involves venting it, so there is airflow to help evaporate any moisture, but that leads to other problems.
The answer to having a dry crawl space without those other problems is crawl space encapsulation. At AdvantaClean of the Midlands, we perform crawl space encapsulation so you can have a dry crawl space that’s free from moisture and other problems. There are a number of benefits of this method over a regular vented crawl space.
A standard, vented crawl space lets in everything from water to pests. Moisture leads to mold, mildew and sometimes water damage that can undermine your home’s foundation. Pests can likewise damage your home, and should a rodent die in your home’s crawl space, you will suffer with the odor for days. This type of crawl space is not helpful in terms of energy-efficiency, either.
Crawl space encapsulation will improve your home, both in comfort and value, while preserving its structural integrity. Crawl space encapsulation lines the floor and foundation walls with heavy polyethylene plastic. Options such as adding insulation and using your HVAC system to maintain the temperature in the crawl space along with the rest of your home can further increase your comfort level and your home’s energy efficiency.
