Protecting The Air That We Breathe!
Mold originates in the ground and a properly installed plastic vapor barrier inhibits mold transfer to your crawl sealing joists. Since 50% of your home’s air comes from your crawl … keeping mold suppressed is always a good investment.
We run lights throughout to make your crawl owner friendly.
Sealing your crawl 100% from your crawl dirt floor significantly improves your homes air quality immediately. Running 10 mil plastic up the walls and attaching them to the crawl wall and foam sealing for a 100% seal. Sealing pillars, doors and all pipes and electrical coming from the exterior. Case studies in NC show keeping insulation in and sealing crawl adds 15.3% energy efficiency to your home.
We recommend removing the old insualtion if more that 2-3 years old for air and health factors.
Vented vs Sealed Crawl
The ultimate solution to great air quality and energy efficiency. Removing your old moldy insulation then spraying mold inhibitor to sanitize your crawl then seal vents, pillars, doors and insulating your crawl walls with either spray foam or rigid board insulation.
In 2002, Sealed Solution did a case study studied on a group of 12 homes here in NC. We found that the 4 that had vented crawl spaces had Relative Humidity that tracked the humidity of the outside air and that the 8 that had sealed crawl had Relative Humidity levels that stayed under 60%. That means the sealed crawls had moisture levels consistent to what your 1st floor relative humidity levels are.
