Here at Turners Underseal, we want to help you do what’s best for your home, which is why we offer a range of services designed to help you keep mold out and improve your indoor air quality. If you’ve been looking for ways to accomplish either of these goals, you have most likely heard of crawlspace encapsulation. Through many years of experience with dry crawlspaces, we have found that crawlspace encapsulation is a very misleading service. Encapsulations have leaks all over them, causing a toxic stew to breed underneath the plastic and come into the crawlspace. Furthermore, water, sewage, and mud can get trapped on top of the liner, which can cause more mold to grow on the subfloor above. There are a lot of companies that promote encapsulation, but we believe this is a huge mistake.
We provide a specialized dehumidifying service that produces even better results. In this article, we’ll go over three benefits of our alternative method.
- Mold Prevention- We can’t ever think of any reason at all to encapsulate a crawlspace. It causes a toxic stew and can trap water and contaminants on top of the liner because they all leak.Our methods, however, get better results by using specialized dehumidifiers to dry out the air and clea _n ifasdadt of contaminants. Our Dry Crawlspace System has specialized components that move dry air through our multi-ducted distribution system so that the entire crawlspace stays dry all the time. This prevents any mold from growing as well as bacterial products and discourages pests such as insects, rodents, and snakes. Furthermore, it protects HVAC equipment and ductwork from wear and tear and contamination.
- Structural Damage Prevention- Another benefit of our crawlspace encapsulation alternative is that it helps prevent damage to the structure of your home. Mold and moisture are not merely unpleasant, but they can also do real harm to the structural integrity of a building. If you want to prevent your wooden structures from warping or rotting, we encourage you to give our team a call.
- Air Quality Improvement- A third benefit that our crawlspace services provide is improved indoor air quality. Mold is a serious irritant to the respiratory system, and can cause some seriously unpleasant symptoms. By keeping it out, our methods allow you and everyone else in your home to breathe easier.
