Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installations
A home is a place of comfort — somewhere you need to feel safe every day. That’s why you need the proper insulation for every corner of the house, including your storage crawl space. Atticare crawl space vapor barriers keep the gap between your home and ground dry and secure so you can foster a clean, healthy environment at a fair cost.
Why You May Need to Install or Replace a Vapor Barrier
While the problems caused by moisture beneath your home or business are difficult to deal with on their own, the cumulative impact of these conditions can eventually result in structural damage and pose serious risks to your health. That’s why it’s so important to act right away if you notice any of the signs of excessive moisture in a crawl space, including:
- Standing water in the crawl space
- Insect and pest infestation
- Bad or musty odors
- Rotting wood on the ceiling of the crawl space
- Warped or sagging floors
- Rusted pipes in the crawl space
- Observable mold or mildew
What Is a Vapor Barrier and How Does it Protect Your Home?
A crawl space beneath your home can cause all types of issues. A vapor barrier, which is a thin layer of impermeable material typically made from polyethylene sheeting, can block water from entering the crawl space and help prevent these issues and the associated damage they can cause.
A crawl space can be a great place to store tools, nonperishables and other items. However, it’s easy to forget about crawl spaces and let issues slide. Before you know it, you could have a crawl space filled with mold and pests.
When moisture evaporates from the soil, it can form condensation on the walls and ceiling of your crawl space. Eventually, this could lead to a number of problems, including mold, odors, insects and wood rot. In addition to the unpleasant smells, the vermin and other major inconveniences, excess moisture can cause health hazards.
If you find that your allergies have worsened or you’re dealing with asthma-related issues at home, we recommend checking your crawl space for mold, mildew or other the signs of moisture listed above. Exposing yourself to harmful air contaminants over long periods can make it hard to breathe, and in some cases, lead to serious illness.
Installing a crawl space vapor barrier protects your space from absorbing moisture. This ensures that it stays a dry, safe place to store valuable items. Vapor barriers are quick to install if you’re working with the right experts. Combined with reliable waterproofing systems, vapor barriers can provide long-term security against contaminants and infestations.
