Why Get a Crawl Space or Attic Encapsulation?
Your home should the cleanest, most comfortable place in your life. After all, your home is where you’ll be spending the majority of your life. It’s where you wake up every morning and where you go to sleep every night, where you have your dinner, and where you entertain guests and raise your family. You shouldn’t be doing all of that in a place that’s unclean or uncomfortable or both.
But unfortunately, you can’t simply want a clean, perfect home. You have to work to maintain one. And one of the ways you can work to do so is to encapsulate your attic and crawlspace.
What Is An Encapsulation?
Basically, a crawl space or attic encapsulation seals off all the areas of your attic and crawlspace that allow conditioned air out and the elements in. For your attic, this process involves applying a foam sealant to cracks and other areas that prevent your home from being sealed. And for your crawl space, this process involves attaching sanitary, non-porous covering on the walls, floor, and even ceiling of your crawl space. Thus, your crawl space, like your attic, will keep your conditioned air in and everything else out!
But Why Is It Important To Keep The Outside Outside?
Obviously, you don’t want all the yuck from the outside world invading the little bit of paradise that’s your home. But more than that, you don’t want to deal with the issues that can happen once the elements invade your home: mold. If your crawl space or attic becomes compromised, water from the outside can encourage mold to develop within it. That problem combined with the already less-than-clean outdoor air can create an unsafe, and sickness-inducing indoor environment for you.
Any Other Benefits?
In addition to staying healthy, you’ll get to enjoy a more comfortable home life! An encapsulation adds an extra layer of insulation to your home, helping to keep your warm or cool air in while it keeps the nasty outdoor air out. So while you breathe easily in your home, you’ll also get to relax and enjoy the exact temperature that you expect for your home to be!
The Bottom Line
Your home is your castle. You need to do everything that you can to be sure that it remains as clean and comfortable as you need it to for many years to come. One way that you can do this is by having an encapsulation done on your attic and crawl space!
