CleanSpace Crawl Space

Did you know that there is a source of mold, mildew, humidity, and insects in your home? It is your crawl space? While the dirt or cement in you crawl appear dry, it is full of moisture and humidity that leaks directly into your home. This moisture can ruin your home by providing a hospitable environment for mold, fungi, and insects that can destroy your wood framing.

Benefits of a Sealed Crawl Space:

  • Improves energy efficiency of the home
  • Improves indoor air quality
  • Adds usable storage space to the home
  • Prolongs the life of the foundation
  • Floors stay warmer in the winter
  • Keeps pipes from freezing
  • Keeps hardwood floors looking good all
    year round, eliminates buckling or cupping
    that results from high moisture levels
  • A Sealed Crawl Space simply makes your
    crawl space look presentable, which adds
    value to your home

Pisgah Insulation & Fireplaces of NC are certified Ecapsulated Crawl Providers. The crawl is sealed with a 20-mil, 7-ply sandwhich of high & low density polyethylene with a polyester cord reinforment on the floor and then fastened to the walls. The liner is treated with an antimicrobial finish that protects against mold and mildew growth beneath the system and it is an effective certified vapor barrier. The liner is tough enough for service people to crawl on and safe enough for storage.
Properly sealing the crawl space and removing moisture from the ground and air is part of the solution that helps provide a mold free, radon free and insect free environment, which leads to a healthier and more efficient home.
