Three things destroy materials in general and wood in particular: Water, Heat and Ultraviolet Radiation. Of these, water is by far the most important. A dirt crawl space under a home is a bad idea if you want to keep you and your family healthy.
The earth has a very high humidity in the soil. A damp environment is very unhealthy and destructive. Mold thrives and reproduces by producing airborne spores by the millions and some molds are toxic.
Insects and critters of all kinds love damp environments and wet materials. Rot and decay occur in damp environments causing structural damage.
The natural airflow in a house is from bottom to top, this sucks the moist air and everything in it up into the living areas of the home. Mold spores, odors, humidity, and critters create a very unhealthy environment for people. Many people are allergic to these things and experience a host of symptoms and don’t realize that their dirt crawl space is affecting their health.
Dirty crawl spaces do not have to be wet or flooded to be extremely unhealthy. Heating and cooling costs are higher in a home with a vented dirt crawl space.
Radon gas is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that comes from the ground in most areas of north america is also a big concern. The EPA has identified radon gas exposure with increased risk of lung cancer. Dirty crawl spaces allow radon gas to enter the home easily.
Crawl space encapsulation system completely isolates your home from the earth, this dramatically reduces the humidity level in the air which will reduce or in most cases eliminate mold growth, rot, and critters from your crawl space. Additionally, the clean space encapsulation system is the ideal solution to reduce radon entry from a dirt crawl space.
How does a clean space works? Our trained installers will remove wood and organic materials from your crawl space floor. Rocks and uneven surfaces are leveled depending on the crawl space conditions. The clean space vapor barrier is carefully cut and installed throughout the space. The top edge of the liner is sealed to the walls with a sealant. All seams are sealed with a special four-inch wide sealing tape and or sealant made for the clean space liner. The clean space liner is also sealed around other objects such as pipes, columns, and piers to fully isolate your home environment from the earth.
The result is an attractive, bright, tough and impervious liner and a healthy home above it. The clean space liner is tough enough for you to crawl on, and you can also use your crawl space for storage.
