Protect Your House from Mold with a Sealed Crawl Space

Mold is a major cause of poor air quality in many houses; it can lead to sinus infections, and in people with nasal allergies, it can worsen symptoms.  Mold can grow almost anywhere in the house, but when it is in the crawl space, it very easily gets into the air supply through the vents, and it is hard to get rid of.  Having a properly Sealed Crawl Space can prevent the growth of mold in your crawl space; the way to achieve that is through Crawl Space Encapsulation.  Charlotte NC gets very hot and humid in the summer, perfect conditions for mold growth, so sealing your crawl space is one of the best ways to protect your house from mold.

 

What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation, and How Does It Work?

Crawl space encapsulation is a type of waterproofing, and thus it is one of the services offered by Dry Otter Waterproofing. It consists not only of placing waterproof materials in and around the crawlspace itself but in the waterproofing of parts of the house that are often a source of crawl space moisture, even if they are not especially physically close to the crawl space.  Isolating the gutters, the foundation vents, and even the foundation of the house can help protect the crawl space from moisture.

Crawl Space Encapsulation Charlotte NC is a very good investment, because removing mold from a crawl space once it has already grown is a difficult process, and the mold often grows back.  Sealing the crawl space is an effective and permanent solution for keeping out mold.  It also helps protect your crawl space from radon.
