Features of Crawlspace Encapsulation Cost Lafayette, IN

What is that damp, musty smell that has recently invaded (or has been consistently plaguing) your home? Are you suddenly—or chronically—prone to allergic reactions? Does the air in your home feel a bit too moist?

This is likely caused by mold that grows in dark and damp places in your home—most notably, your crawl space. A study by the Mayo Clinic has revealed that nearly all chronic sinus infections are a result of mold; and since up to 40% of the breathable air in the home can come from the crawl space, the EPA recommends keeping humidity levels in the crawl space down to 40%-50% in order to prevent the growth of mold.

Once the inspection is complete and mold is found, it must be done away with. Our Continuous Infectious Microbial Reduction (CIMR) has been used in Military bases and museums to preserve artifacts. It prevents further damage and has been approved by OSHA, so it’s completely safe for people and animals to be around. We have CIMR units available for purchase so you can keep your home protected. There are also industrial units to remediate areas of heavy contamination.

Once mold is taken care of, you certainly don’t want it to come back. Crawl space encapsulation protects your home from the damaging affects of mold on substructures within the crawl spaces of homes. Call Crawlspace Remediation, and they can give you an estimate for crawl space encapsulation cost in Lafayette, Indiana. Our extensive process of crawl space encapsulation helps protect your home from mold and mildew which helps prevent musty smells, allergic reactions, wood decay and rot, and a moist climate.

The first step in this process is to determine whether some prior conditioning will be needed to prepare the space for encapsulation. Obviously, if you’ve already had mold remediation, you’re one step closer to being ready. But if there is sitting water or other damage or leaks, they’ll need to be fixed prior to encapsulation. Once that’s all settled, we begin the encapsulation by installing our vapor barrier, which is a plastic lining that covers the walls and floors to prevent vapors from entering your home. A thinner 6mm plastic is used on the walls and a thicker 10mm plastic is used on the floor. Once the entirety of the walls and floor are covering in plastic, we completely tape all the seams to ensure that no vapors can enter your home. This method ensures that your home is protected from further damage.
