How Does Crawl Space Encapsulation Help with Bulk Moisture Problems?

(View as a downloadable PDF)

Q: What is bulk moisture or bulk water?

A: Rain, snow, or groundwater.

Why is there moisture in your crawl space? Bulk water gets into a Virginia home by:

  • Running down the side of your home
  • Entering through cracks in foundation
  • Plumbing leaks and condensation

You can get rid of moisture under your house by fully encapsulating your crawl space to prevent water and moisture from getting into your home.

The Crawl Space Encapsulation Process

  1. Addressing standing water issues
  2. Cleaning the crawl space
  3. Installing a vapor barrier
  4. Air sealing your crawl space
  5. Installing crawl space insulation

With house crawl space encapsulation, you are installing a series of barriers that address the different ways that moisture, humidity, and water can enter your home.
