Are you worried that moisture in the crawlspace of your home might cause problems down the line? Then have it encapsulated by the experts at Freedom Crawlspace Services (803-493-9902) in Charlotte!
A lot of people shrug off moisture in their crawlspace as harmless or benign, but what they don't realize is that over time this moisture can get worse and worse and eventually start to have a detrimental effect on the health and safety of their home. That's why the experts at Freedom Crawlspace Services are recommending you get your crawlspace encapsulated.
The Charlotte crawlspace contractor provides affordable, permanent solutions for controlling the moisture in your crawlspaces and preventing potentially harmful mold growth. The two-step process involves installing a water vapor barrier followed by a dehumidifier to control air quality.

Freedom Crawlspace Services offers encapsulation as a solution that stops water vapor from seeping through the foundation and entering your home. “The liner that is found in swimming pools is an analogy that can be used to describe encapsulation,” said a spokesperson for the company. “Those linings help in preventing leakage - encapsulation does the same thing but for your crawlspace.”
The experts at Freedom Crawlspace Services will start with an inspection of your crawlspace to determine what needs to be covered and whether or not any structural issues need to be addressed first. Once finalized, they begin with the encapsulation process.
During the first phase of the encapsulation process, the experts install a heavy-duty polyethylene barrier that covers the floor, walls, and ceiling of your crawlspace. This barrier is then sealed using a special tape. Once sealed, a dehumidifier is installed to regulate the amount of moisture in your crawlspace.
By having both the barrier and the dehumidifier installed, you ensure that the air quality in your home remains high and significantly reduce the chances of costly home repairs and renovations in the future. You may also find that your energy bills get lower and your property value goes up after getting your crawlspace encapsulated.
“Freedom Crawlspace Services encapsulated my crawlspace and installed a dehumidifier to remedy the moisture issues I was having,” said a satisfied client. “Throughout the entire process, they were prompt, professional, and friendly. Now I can use my crawlspace to store items without the fear of them getting moldy or mildewed.”
If you're unsure whether or not your crawlspace needs to be encapsulated, there are a few signs you can look out for. Condensation on windows, moldy and mildewy smells in the basement, and wet insulation are obvious indicators. Less obvious are things like insect infestations, soft or separated floors, and increased utility bills.
By not having your crawlspace encapsulated, you put the health and safety of your friends, family, and neighbors at risk. For one, the structural integrity of your home or business can be seriously jeopardized. Some molds can also toxify the air, leading to both short and long-term health problems.
