Crawlspace Vapor Barriers: What Are They And How Do They Help?

Crawlspaces, the area under a roof or floor that provides access to wiring and plumbing, often trap excess moisture - which can lead to issues with mold and mildew. However, this can be mitigated with a crawlspace vapor barrier, a plastic or foil sheeting that is installed on the floor or walls of a crawlspace to prevent moisture from entering.

Other Benefits

In addition to controlling moisture levels, Freedom Crawlspace Services’ vapor barriers can provide numerous other benefits such as improving the air quality in your home. Many home HVAC systems draw air from within crawlspaces, leading to musty air circulating throughout your house when crawlspace moisture levels are not controlled. They also improve the efficiency of HVAC systems - as when moisture is regulated, HVAC systems don’t have to work as hard to maintain comfortable temperatures.

Furthermore, vapor barriers can also deter pests such as rodents and termites by creating a physical barrier that limits their access to your home. Additionally, the reduced moisture levels make your crawlspace less hospitable for pests, thus assisting in preventing infestations.

When To Replace A Vapor Barrier

If you already have a crawlspace vapor barrier installed, there are various signs to look for that indicate a need to replace your vapor barrier. The company recommends you regularly check your barrier for signs of physical damage such as punctures and tears as these reduce the efficiency of your barrier. Evidence of mold or mildew growth can also indicate the necessity for a new barrier.
