They are known for having excess moisture issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests.
