This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests.
