If you’ve got a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you will only visit when there is a problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly closed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having excess humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside.
