Santa Fe CrawlGuard Total Encapsulation Solution
A crawl space is one of the most confusing and misunderstood areas of your home. Unfinished crawl spaces are often plagued by high levels of moisture, leading to musty odors, mold, insect infestations, structural issues, and poor indoor air quality. In fact, studies show that as much as 50 percent of the air in a home flows from these below-grade areas.
If you have a vented crawl space, moist air enters from the outside and condenses on the cooler surfaces of the walls, floor and ductwork. Coupled with the moisture from the dirt floor and water leaking through imperfections in the foundations, unfinished crawl spaces can contribute to high energy bills, structural damage, and potentially, could be making you sick.
Many crawl spaces have built-in ventilation to allow airflow to mitigate moisture, which may work in some climates certain parts of the year. Building science experts are now realizing that in some parts of the country, ventilation is actually contributing to condensation and high humidity in the crawl space. During the winter months, ventilation allows colder temperatures to pass under the home, which can result in cold floors and higher heating bills.
The Santa Fe CrawlGuard Total Encapsulation Solution provides a cleaner, healthier, and more energy-efficient crawl space, while minimizing pests and fungi. It provides the flexibility to choose the right combination of products to solve your specific problem. As part of an integrated moisture control management solution for closed crawl spaces, the Santa Fe CrawlGuard Total Encapsulation Solution features several customized options designed to target a wide variety of moisture driven problems that often arise in these environments.
