Did you know that if you have a crawlspace or unfinished basement in the Denver area, you can avoid mold and moisture damage with a crawlspace vapor-barrier?
If your home has a crawlspace, it is important to know how to protect this area. Usually crawlspaces are just a dirt floor that may or may not have proper ventilation. Your crawlspace could also have debris lingering that could become a food source for mold.
You can protect the integrity of your home and your health and control the moisture levels in your crawlspace by installing a vapor barrier in your crawlspace.
Buying or selling your home? Home Inspection Notice Repairs may request a vapor barrier be installed. Call Professional Restoration at 303-922-4001 for more information or schedule a free consultation and estimate to install a crawlspace vapor barrier.
Why should you consider a vapor barrier in your crawlspace?
In an unprotected crawlspace, ground water can create high humidity levels, and if there is no air movement, it is possible for mold to grow. Installing a crawlspace vapor barrier controls the moisture level inside the crawlspace from ground water, and protects the wood framing from moisture.
If a pipe does break in the crawlspace, the water extraction and clean up process is much easier with a vapor barrier installed, and it can reduce the cost towards emergency restoration services.
Many airborne pathogens can originate from a crawlspace under or around your home. Make your home crawlspace safe and resistant to outside elements with a tough liner system.
At Professional Restoration we install vapor barriers using 10 Mil plastic sheeting. We overlap the seams eight inches before gluing and taping the plastic sheeting together to create a tight seal that goes throughout the entire space and up the existing foundation walls before it is ramset, and secured along the sides of the crawlspace.
