Crawlspace Encapsulation in Asheville, North Carolina

In the Asheville, North Carolina area, there are many homes that have dirt crawlspaces, both new and historic. We have high humidity levels in this area, which makes these dirt crawlspaces particularly hazardous in terms of the quality of your indoor air, as well as mold growth opportunities. With our methods, we are able to surpass the results of standard crawlspace encapsulation.


How to keep your crawlspace dry


While crawlspace encapsulation is better than nothing, it doesn’t address one of the most serious issues with your crawlspace: the humidity. With our methods, we install thick, plastic sheeting all over the crawlspace and then install specialized dehumidifiers and air purification methods to dry and clean your air. Rather than relying on old methods of circulation for your crawlspace that draw in moist air, our methods treat and clean the air, ensuring it won’t harm the living spaces above or invite mold growth.

Our methods for creating a cleaner, drier crawlspace surpass those of crawlspace encapsulation, and we would love to show you the results for yourself. If you have questions about our variety of services, we want to hear from you. For more information, please give us a call today.

Crawlspace Encapsulation FAQs

Located beneath the home, a crawlspace is a small, elevated space that usually allows for easier access to pipes and ventilation. While crawlspaces are convenient and necessary for many different homes, they can also be problematic if not properly cared for. Here at Turners Underseal, we want to help make your home clean and comfortable with our crawlspace encapsulation services. We understand that you might have some questions about crawlspace encapsulation, so we have provided some of our most frequently asked questions and answers here:

What is crawlspace encapsulation?

Crawlspace encapsulation involves installing a physical barrier of plastic sheeting that is pulled and secured tightly all over the surface area of your crawlspace. This barrier is meant to keep the dirt floor from circulating and allowing mold spores to latch and grow in your crawlspace.

Do I really need crawlspace encapsulation?

In most cases, yes– especially if you live in a humid area. Crawlspace encapsulation is a great method of ensuring your crawlspace is still accessible while also helping to protect the air quality there and throughout your home.

Will crawlspace encapsulation keep my crawlspace from smelling musty?

Yes, in most all cases. Musty odors usually come from stale or moldy air that is running rampant in your crawlspace.

What is crawlspace dehumidification?

Crawlspace encapsulation is usually only the first step to a truly safe crawlspace. Crawlspace dehumidification ensures that your crawlspace has a safe level of humidity with specialized drying features and methods.

These are just some of the questions that we receive regarding crawlspace encapsulation. If you have other questions, please contact us today for more information.
