Wet Crawl Space
The process of encapsulating or "sealing off" a crawl space is done to lock out moisture and get rid of your wet crawl space issue for good. Crawl space encapsulation will turn off the link between moisture, water, and the joists of a home. By running a vapor barrier along the wall surfaces of a crawl space to completely protect the flooring, you essentially divide the outside from the inside of the home.
This vapor barrier certainly is the flexible membrane between the wall surfaces and floor and the remaining area of the house. A properly designed vapor barrier will decrease the transfer of moisture through it, while managing the speed at which air will naturally go through. This can help to restrict and manage the amount of moisture which will find its way into the air area and totally separate liquid water and steer it to a sump spot.
Encapsulating a crawl space is going to decrease moisture and humidity inside your crawl space and help reduce your energy expenses. Limiting moisture will help to ensure that any insulating material inside your floor boards will be working at their best while keeping the price of running any air conditioners as low as possible.
