Crawl Space Encapsulation
Crawl Space Moisture: Why Problems Occur
Crawl spaces, those pesky little hard-to-reach areas in your commercial or residential property, tend to present a unique set of challenges when it comes to stopping moisture growth. Maintaining moisture control under your house is inarguably tough work – no one likes to crawl around in the dark, cobwebby spaces underneath a home! However, no matter how difficult to access the crawlspace in question is, it’s pretty imperative that it be properly cleaned and maintained. Why? Because, in addition to moisture-related issues, these areas of your property are ripe breeding grounds for all kinds of unappetizing creatures and growth – insect infestations, rodent takeovers, and bacteria collectives are all unfortunate results of unclean crawl spaces.
