Crawl Space Encapsulation Services

Encapsulating, or at least sealing crawl spaces is a popular solution for avoiding indoor moisture issues. It is similar to the lining added to swimming pools to avoid leaks. A heavy-duty polyethylene barrier is added to completely cover your crawl space - usually the floors, foundation walls, and sometimes even ceiling. Innovative Restoration is the most trusted company in Townsend & Walland, TN for crawl space encapsulation services since 2009.

Need to Encapsulate Crawl Spaces

Since up to 50% of household air can flow up from your crawl space, it’s important to keep it as clean and dry as possible. Common issues that lead people to seal their crawl space:

  • Mold
  • Mildew/musty smell in basement
  • Soft or separating floors
  • High cooling costs
  • Wet insulation
  • Condensation on windows
  • Insect problems
  • Standing water or mud on dirt floor after heavy rain
  • Foul odor from the crawl space
  • Mold & mildew on walls & floor on the first-floor closets
  • Breathing discomfort

Crawl Space Encapsulation by Innovative Restoration

Water vapor enters the crawl space from the ground (even through cement), leading many people to encapsulate their crawl space to keep the moisture out. Adding a crawl space vapor barrier and dehumidifier is widely accepted as the best way to improve indoor air quality and make energy improvements inside your home. Benefits of creating a Vapor Barrier:

Innovative Restoration
  • Improved air quality in your crawl space and home
  • Creates inhospitable area for pests and wood-destroying insects
  • Allows for more comfortable living conditions
  • Avoid fungi/mold issues and structural damage
  • Greater energy efficiency in your home
  • Blocked moisture
  • Retains property integrity
  • Healthy Crawl Space Certificate

This water vapor barrier is most effective when it completely covers your crawl space, and sealing tape is used to connect the barrier pieces throughout the area. Once your space is completely sealed, the final piece of encapsulation is controlling the air to maintain a healthy humidity level.

The most common way to do this is by adding a dehumidifier to regulate your crawl space’s moisture level. This barrier and dehumidifier combination protects the crawl space from excess moisture and all the problems that come along with it.
