Should I Encapsulate My Crawl Space?
Homes with crawlspaces can still have moisture problems even in a dry climate area like New Mexico. Although crawl spaces usually have vents to circulate fresh air from the outside, the vents often fail to work well. The moisture from the ground under and around your home evaporates causing water vapor in your home’s crawl space. When water vapor and wood combine, it can cause problems for your home in the form of wood rot, mold, termites, and fungi. Many people don’t realize they have a moisture problem in their crawl space until damage is done to their home. Alarmingly, 50% of the air we breathe at home streams from the crawlspace. 50%! In order to keep the air as healthy as possible, be on the lookout for the following signs that you may have a moisture issue in your crawl space:
- Health issues such as allergies
- Musty odors
- Mold & mildew growth
- Drafty rooms, cold floors or damp carpet
- Hardwood floor damage
- Wood rot
- Floor failure
- Insects, dust mites and rodents
- High heating and cooling costs
