Installing a Crawl Space Vapor Barrier
If you have water or moisture problems in your crawl space, there are steps you can take to ensure your crawl space is kept dry and healthy. Installing a crawl space vapor barrier effectively addresses moisture problems, and is a long-term solution for many homeowners.
Prevent Moisture From the Air
Installing vent covers and doors prevents the mixing of hot air and cold air and can reduce the humidity and moisture levels in your crawl space.
Remove Standing Water
Next, any standing water should be removed and sources of the flooding need to be addressed. This can be accomplished by installing a sump pump system and a crawl space drain to remove standing water if flooding occurs.
Encapsulation of the Crawl Space
When moisture evaporates in your crawl space from the ground or walls, encapsulation provides a moisture barrier to stop that moisture from entering your crawl space. A durable liner is used to encapsulate your crawl space and still allows for easy access to your crawl space when needed.
Once encapsulation is complete, a dehumidifier may be used to help prevent the humidity in your crawl space from reaching levels that promote mold growth.
