What is lurking in your crawl space? If you have a dirt crawl space under your home you are at risk for black mold, water seepage and pest infestations.
An unprotected concrete or dirt crawl space is a continual source of moisture. Even if the dirt surface seems dry, digging down a few inches reveals moist earth. This moist, humid environment leads to mold growth, fungus, musty odors, structural damage and unhealthy air seeping into your home. These conditions also attract insects, wildlife and other pests.
Protect your home and save up to 20% each month on your heating and cooling costs with the CleanSpace® Crawl Space Encapsulation System® or a vapor barrier.
The CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System
The CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System creates a protective bubble that keeps pests and moisture out, and locks your heat and air conditioning in. This reinforced 20-mil crawl space vapor barrier is installed on the floors and walls of your crawl space area. It is also suitable for dirt basements, basements with uneven walls and floors, or basements with large rocks or other unmovable objects.
The CleanSpace system completely stops moisture, including moisture from the dirt below and from dirt and concrete walls, and humidity from passing through to your home. When combined with airtight crawl space vents and doors, it also protects your crawl space or basement from outside moisture and humidity that would otherwise enter through the crawl space walls (such as crawl space vents and openings around pipe penetrations). Combined with dehumidifying, crawl space encapsulation will reduce or, in some cases, completely eliminate mold growth, rot and pests from your crawl space.
For minor humidity issues and no active leaks or water problems, a vapor barrier can isolate the most problematic parts of your crawl space and improve the structural health of your home.
