A crawl space is something that’s easy to forget about, but ignoring the condition of your crawl space can actually lead to indoor air quality problems. When moisture from the crawl space breaches your home’s envelope, it can cause problems for its occupants. This problem is more serious than you might think, because as much as 50% of your household air can flow up from your crawl space and filter into your home.

How Crawl Space Encapsulation Works
The goal of crawl space encapsulation is to place a barrier between your building envelope and your crawl space. When we partner with Montgomery, Frederick, Carroll, and Howard County homeowners to encapsulate their properties, we install a heavy-duty polyethylene barrier. This covers your crawl space, including the ceiling, foundation walls, and floors, so that no moisture from the area can enter your home. We will then seal off the barrier to add further protection. Finally, we will add a dehumidifier inside the sealed crawl space to keep the moisture inside the crawl space from getting too high.
