Crawlspace Encapsulation Services
In most places, crawl spaces are neglected and don't receive the proper maintenance. They are usually thought of as a space in home or buildings where old goods are tucked away. Because of this, crawl space can become a feeding ground for distressing activities that include:
- Mold intrusion
- Excessive moisture formation
- Bug colonies
- Standing water
- Slumped floor
- Water leaks
- Drywall cracks
- Damaged vents
