Areas like your crawl space are susceptible to encountering moisture damage. When it floods, rains, or the temperature drops, water enters the crawl space and stagnates. If this happens to your property, your top priority is to remove every trace of water and keep the area completely dry, because, if you leave the crawl space damp, the following problems will arise:
- Putrid odors
- Mold and mildew growth
- Soft and separating floors
- Water-loving insect, vermin, and critter infestation
- Premature decaying of organic material (e.g. wood and rust)
To prevent these problems from occurring in your crawl space, it’s recommended that you have a crawl space vapor barrier installed as soon as possible. A vapor barrier is a type of crawl space encapsulation material that specifically protects your crawl space and other areas of your property from water and moisture.
The vapor barrier blocks moisture from entering the crawl space and prevents water damage from developing in the area. It also has the ability to provide you increased energy efficiency by controlling the amount of heat that penetrates and escapes your home. Additionally, the crawl space vapor barrier protects your utilities (e.g. pipes) from getting damaged.
