Crawlspace Managment FAQs
Q. What's the difference between mold and fungus?
Mold is an airborne microorganism that can contaminate breathing air and cause health problems. Fungus is a wood-destroying organism that can quickly cause enormous structural damage to buildings.
Q. What's the difference between crawlspace encapsulation and a moisture barrier?
Encapsulation involves sealing off all vents and entry points beneath your house. We accomplish this using heavy polyethylene sheeting. This technique improves your home’s air quality.
A moisture barrier involves placing plastic over the soil beneath your home so the wood absorbs less moisture.
Q. Why do houses have vented crawlspaces if they cause so many problems?
Crawl spaces were originally built to allow air circulation under a house and for easy access to plumbing. Unfortunately, our humid climate in Western KY causes moisture along with mold and mildew buildup.
These microorganisms can cause health problems and structural damage. Encapsulating a crawlspace is the best way to prevent moisture-related problems.
