At Zhe Industries, we offer complete encapsulation solutions for your crawl space. We start by carefully inspecting the space for any damaged areas that need to be treated. We then seal any floor vents and wall penetrations with foam sealant. We also attach moisture barriers to the walls and a reinforced vapor barrier over the entire floor area.
Our team of professional and certified technicians takes great care to ensure a successful outcome every time. Trust Zhe Industries with Your Sealed Crawl Space Solution.
Next, we install an energy-efficient dehumidifier and seal the perimeter to create a crawl space. This seals the space, trapping humid air and effectively ending mold growth and wood rot, reducing allergens and making your home much healthier. A vented crawl space's unrestricted humid air access creates the perfect breeding ground for mold. Mold spores require moisture to feed; as you may have guessed, your humid crawl space provides that.
Water in your crawl space also accelerates the natural decay of your wooden joists, resulting in compromised support for your home.
Vapor barrier: This barrier is typically made from heavy gauge plastic sheeting that lines the entire dirt floor and wall of the crawl space, including any vents and pipes. This thick plastic keeps moisture from rising from the ground into the crawl space, helping to prevent any mold or mildew from forming.
Crawl space encapsulation: This method goes a step further than just a vapor barrier, as it involves covering all surfaces, even beams, and ductwork, with insulation and a waterproof liner. This prevents warm or cool air from leaking into the crawl space. The waterproof liner will also protect the floor and other structural components from any moisture that gets in. This solution can significantly reduce the amount of moisture in the crawl space, helping to keep mold and mildew growth to a minimum.
If you live in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, or Hampton Roads areas and have problems with your crawl space moisture, the team at ZHE Industries are here to help. We will evaluate your crawl space, provide expert solutions, and provide crawl space encapsulation services to keep your home comfortable and healthy.
