Our Crawl Space Encapsulation Process
Initial Assessment Of The Crawl Space
When Erie Environmental receives your call for crawl space encapsulation services, we dispatch a team of IICRC-certified crawl space encapsulation technicians to your home. The crew completes an initial assessment of the condition of the crawl space. We identify sources of moisture and mold damage before creating a plan for encapsulation.
Crawl Space Cleaning
To ensure crawlspace encapsulation is successful, we begin by cleaning out the area. Rocks, sticks, and other items are removed so as not to puncture the barrier.
Crawl Space Encapsulation System Installation
Next, the dimensions of the crawl space are measured, and the barrier cut to fit the corresponding surfaces. Total coverage ensures that there are no gaps. We apply a sealing tape beneath floor joists before attaching the barrier to the walls. The floors are then covered.
Humidity Monitoring & Maintenance
With the crawlspace encapsulation system installed, you’ll need to monitor the humidity levels. A dehumidifier helps with this task, maintaining an optimal level of 45-50%.
