Most people don’t give much thought about the area under their house, but if you have a crawl space, you will want to consider installing a vapor barrier. Your crawl space is not just an empty space under your home but instead is an area that should be taken care of and kept clean.
One of the most significant issues facing crawl spaces is unwanted moisture resulting from flooding and water leaks. This moisture can lead to smell, wood rot, degraded insulation, and the growth of mold, mildew, and fungi.
This moisture can provide the perfect environment for pests to move in and begin to destroy the space. Crawl spaces quickly become infested with rodents, animals, and various types of other pests that make their home under your house.
Unclean crawl spaces can also be damaging to the health of your family, as bacteria grow in this space and ends up in the air your family breathes. This can result in asthma, bronchitis, watery eyes, and difficulty breathing.
The best way to rid your crawl space of pests, unwanted moisture, and stop wood rot and mold growth is by installing a vapor barrier. Installing a vapor barrier is energy efficient and can transform your crawl space from a smelly, moldy area into a dry, clean space that can easily be used for additional storage.

Installation Process for a Crawl Space Vapor Barrier
Installing a vapor barrier in your crawl space doesn’t have to be a challenge. We make the installation process fast and simple, so you can feel assured that your home is safe from pests, mold, and moisture.
Step #1: Preparing the Crawl Space - Before we begin, we will need to remove any items in the crawl space that can be transferred out so that they are not in the way. The crawl space will then need to be cleaned and any holes filled.
Step #2: Measuring the Crawl Space - Once the crawl space is cleaned and repaired, it will need to be measured for specific dimensions to ensure that the barrier installed fits and doesn’t leave room for moisture and pests to creep in.
Step #3: Installing Vapor Barrier and Insulation - When we have the correct fitting for your vapor barrier, we will then install it, along with insulation that helps lower your cooling and heating costs.
