Alabama Crawl Space Encapsulation Done Right

Safeguard Your Crawl Space with Klean-Co

Crawl spaces are a necessity for most homes in Alabama, keeping your home from directly touching the damp ground below. But what happens when your crawl space starts to let in the elements? Crawl space encapsulation helps keep the outside out by adding another layer of protection, and Klean-Co is your source for Alabama crawl space encapsulation services. Since crawl spaces are designed to allow air to circulate underneath your home, they’re also susceptible to water, insects, and even mold. They’re typically made of cinderblocks or poured concrete, giving your home a sturdy foundation while allowing free ventilation.

Why Choose Crawl Space Encapsulation For Your Calhoun County Home?

Here in Alabama, we face high humidity, heavy rains, and hurricanes that often impact the function of crawl spaces. Before long, water can pool up and cause structural damage, mold, and insect infestations that seem impossible to get rid of. The goal of encapsulation is to provide an extra layer of protection to your crawl space, protecting you from mold problems, rot, and interior damage, all while keeping you safe and free from health hazards. Crawl space encapsulation can:

  • Prevent mold & water damage
  • Prevent pests
  • Reduce Flooding risks
  • Improve Air-Quality
  • Reduce Energy Bills 

Here at Klean-Co, we make your satisfaction our guarantee. Our licensed and insured crawl space technicians work diligently to provide you with quality crawl space encapsulation services that will last for years. We stand behind our work and stop at nothing to ensure stellar results!

What is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

How It Works

How does encapsulation work to protect your crawl space? At Klean-Co, we begin the process with a crawl space assessment. Then, we start the sealing process that includes covering the crawl space floor and walls with a specialized barrier material. The material is made to keep out moisture, pests, and odors, protecting the rest of your home. We then attach the barriers to your crawl space for a tight and secure fit. After custom-fitting the barriers, we use heavy-duty sealing tape to connect the seams and create a seal. By the time we’re finished, your crawl space is fully sealed and protected!

Benefits of Sealing Your Crawl Space

The Pros of Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation is essential for nearly every Alabama home. There are several research-backed reasons why we highly recommend crawl space encapsulation!

Mold Prevention

When a crawlspace has high moisture levels, a home is likely to have high levels of mold spores inside the living space. Mold and other fungi like lichen and mildew thrive in dark, moist, humid places. An unsealed crawl space is an ideal habitat for fungi colonies, leading to problems requiring professional mold removal and restoration. You can prevent mold by eliminating moisture and keeping the air in constant circulation.

Not only does moisture removal through crawl space encapsulation prevent mold, but it also prevents damage to wood floors. A study found that, in encapsulated crawl spaces, moisture levels in the wood were low enough in summer to discourage mold and termites. Throughout the year, levels were consistent enough to prevent shrinking and swelling.

Prevents Pests

Insects such as roaches, beetles, crickets, and rodents like moles and rats view crawl spaces as the perfect home. Unfortunately, leaving your crawl space unguarded creates a dark, humid environment for these pests to thrive. These annoying pests can cause serious damage to your crawl space and carry harmful diseases that can impact your home’s air quality.

Reduces Flooding Risks

The heavy-duty barrier provides a protective layer that keeps water out, even during the heavy downpours in humid, hot Alabama. With encapsulation, the expensive water damage associated with flooding is less likely.

Increased Comfort & Living Space

A sealed crawl space can help prevent drafts, leading to cold floors and uncomfortable living conditions. An encapsulated crawl space can also help reduce noise levels from outside, providing a quieter living space.

Protection from Moisture and Mold

Moisture is the biggest threat to the structural integrity of your home. When left unchecked, it can cause mold and mildew to grow, leading to numerous health problems and costly repairs. Crawl space encapsulation can help stop moisture from seeping into your crawl space, protecting your home from structural damage and health hazards.

Prevention of Pest Infestations

Crawl spaces are often a prime target for rodents, termites, and other pests. A sealed crawl space can help prevent these unwanted visitors from entering your home, protecting your home from damage and disease.

Energy Savings

In addition to improving the air quality and maintaining proper humidity levels, crawl space encapsulation improves your energy savings. Leaks in a duct system allow your air conditioning system to draw air in. This increases cooling costs by 20% to 30%. In addition, experts estimate that homeowners can gain 50% energy savings within the next several years following professional crawl space encapsulation.

Maintaining Your Klean-Co Crawl Space Encapsulation

Ensuring the longevity of your crawl space encapsulation heavily relies on proper maintenance. Regular inspections can help identify issues such as cracks or tears in the vapor barrier before they become severe. In addition, proper ventilation and dehumidification can help keep moisture levels in check and reduce the risk of mold growth.

To maintain your encapsulated crawl space properly, here are some essential maintenance tips:

  1. Inspect the vapor barrier: The vapor barrier is the primary layer that separates the crawl space from the outside environment. It prevents moisture from entering your crawl space, which can lead to structural damage and mold growth. Inspect the vapor barrier regularly for signs of wear, such as tears, holes, or punctures. If you find any damage, it’s crucial to repair it immediately to prevent moisture from entering your crawl space.
  2. Check for proper ventilation: Proper ventilation is crucial in keeping moisture levels in check. Make sure that all vents are open and working correctly. Check the ventilation fans and ensure they’re debris-free so they operate efficiently. Proper ventilation ensures the air circulates, keeping the crawl space dry and preventing mold growth. 
  3. Monitor humidity levels: Moisture is the main culprit behind mold growth, so monitoring humidity levels is essential. Install a hygrometer to measure the relative humidity levels in your crawl space. If the humidity levels are above 50%, it’s time to install a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture from the air. 
  4. Seal crawl space access points: The crawl space has access points allowing easy entry. Seal all these access points to prevent outside air entering your crawl space. This step is essential in preventing moisture from entering your crawl space, which can cause structural damage and mold growth. 

By following these maintenance tips, you can ensure the longevity of your crawl space encapsulation.

Crawl space encapsulation is critical in maintaining a healthy and comfortable home. The numerous benefits of encapsulation include the following:

  • Improved indoor air quality.
  • Enhanced energy efficiency.
  • Increased living space and comfort.
  • Protection against moisture and mold.
