Crawl Space Encapsulation in Kansas City
Creating a healthy home starts from the ground up.
Thanks to a phenomenon called the stack effect, up to 50% of the air you breathe on the first floor of your home comes from your basement or crawl space.
If the thought of breathing whatever is in your crawl space air makes you uncomfortable, it might be time to consider crawl space encapsulation.
Our encapsulation system involves the installation of a high-quality vapor barrier that prevents moisture from entering your crawl space from exposed dirt floors and walls. The result? Reduced risk of mold growth, water damage, and critters—and altogether a healthier home.
What is crawl space encapsulation?
Encapsulation is the process of completely sealing out moisture from your crawl space. To do so, crawl space encapsulation typically combines a variety of waterproofing methods including vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, and sump pumps. These methods work together to control crawl space moisture—a vital step in protecting the health and structural integrity of your home.
When combined with a high efficiency dehumidifier like the Santa-Fe line of high capacity, energy efficient, dehumidifiers you will have the ultimate in humidity control for basements, crawlspaces, and living spaces. See our dehumidifier page for more information.
