You should have your crawl space encapsulated if you are experiencing mold or mildew in your crawl space. If there's visible mold growth on your floor joists, this is a sign that the water vapor can get through the soil and cause further damage to your home's foundation. Even if you don't see any signs of mold, the chances are still high that there is moisture in your wet crawl space if it's not currently encapsulated. Wood rot is another common problem that crawl space encapsulation can prevent. If your home's foundation has been compromised by rot, there is a good chance that an encapsulated crawl space can help prevent further damage.
Crawl space waterproofing is vital to protecting your home's foundation, but many homeowners are not fully aware of how it works and why it's crucial. The soil around your home's foundation is very porous and easily allows water vapors to travel through the ground and into your crawl space. When this happens, there is a high chance that mold spores will begin to grow. You'll be able to breathe easier knowing that your family members aren't at risk for developing respiratory problems due to mold or mildew. You'll also save yourself money in the long run by preventing further damage to your home.
