A Crawl Space Encapsulation takes that dirty, damp area and transforms it into a clean, dry, healthy space. Many homeowners consistently struggle with the amount of moisture that is in their home’s crawl space. As for others, they may be choosing to avoid going into their crawl space all together, thus not realizing the damage that may be occurring over time.
Unfortunately, the moisture from this space may slowly seep into the house, causing costly issues such as: floor deterioration, mold growth, musty odors, condensation on the windows and walls, and wet insulation. Moisture, though, may not be the only worry. Since the majority of residential crawl spaces are vented, this gives perfect access to other pests such as bugs, insects, and even termites.
These issues are not without a solution! Many homeowners are choosing a more permanent fix: Crawl Space Encapsulation.

What is a Crawl Space Encapsulation?
A crawl space encapsulation generally includes lining the crawl space floors & walls with a thick material that prevents growth or moisture to seep through. It also involves sealing the foundation vents and doors so that excess moisture & polluted air cannot enter the crawl space. A dehumidifier is generally installed to control the moisture & environment under the crawl space, ensuring that mold and mildew cannot grow. It also helps to provide an environment that termites and other pest cannot survive in. All gaps and holes that are located in your flooring (plumbing pipes, drains, electrical lines, etc.) are sealed. Installation of a proper drainage system is generally needed, such as a Sump Pump, to eliminate moisture. Sump pumps are installed to help to reduce water and moisture in your crawl space by pumping any water or moisture out of that space. Any groundwater that may be present gets collected before it has the chance to threaten your space! At GSM Services, we also offer a custom crawl space door for your home that is designed specifically to look good and help keep the environment under your crawl as energy efficient as possible.
