Unsealed Crawl Space
Moisture comes from two sources: the ground and the outdoor air. Exposed earth contributes a lot of water vapor into the crawl space air. The earth is damp, and as that damp soil dries beneath the house, the water vapor moves upward.
Crawl Space Air
The stack effect creates an airflow in your home from bottom to top. Therefore, whatever is in your crawl space is air is in your house and affecting you, whether or not you spend time in your crawl space.
Higher Energy Bills
Houses with unsealed crawl spaces have damp air. Damp air uses more energy to heat and cool, and more energy costs more money.
The CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System satisfies all of the repair criteria while dramatically transforming the area into healthy usable space.
Sealing Home from the Earth
CleanSpace is a 20 mil thick plastic liner, similar to a pool liner, that can be fitted in your crawl space to completely seal off your home from the earth.
Crawl Space Storage
Another benefit to the CleanSpace liner is that you can use the crawl space for storage after installation, something this homeowner never would never consider in his previous crawl space.
