Most homeowners don’t venture into their crawl space often. Typically, neglected crawl spaces are moldy, foul-smelling, and filled with debris left over from construction. If you’re living in Florida, your crawl space is prone to flooding due to the tropical climate. All together, these things make for an unpleasant experience when you decide to check in on the condition of your crawl space.

A quick, easy way to improve the health, energy-efficiency, and appearance of this area of your home is crawl space vapor barrier installation.

Our patented CleanSpace® Crawl Space Vapor Barrier System fixes all crawl space problems at once to provide permanent repairs you can rely on.

What Is the Purpose of Vapor Barriers in Crawl Spaces?

The purpose of crawl space vapor barriers is to keep your crawl space dry. By completely covering the dirt floor of your crawl space, they protect your home from ground water entry. This prevents standing water and high humidity which can lead to an abundance of issues, including mold, pests, structural damage, and high energy bills.

Does My Crawl Space Need a Vapor Barrier? 

Installing a crawl space vapor barrier is best practice for new construction, and is even required by some local building codes. Regardless of local code requirements, however, you should consider installing a crawl space vapor barrier if you home shows signs of crawl space damage. These signs of damage can include the following: 

  • Mold
  • Musty odors in home
  • High humidity
  • High energy bills
  • Sinking floors
  • Bugs and pest infestations

How to Install a Vapor Barrier in Your Crawl Space

At NSquare, Inc., we provide crawl space vapor barrier installation, during which we will take care of cleaning out your crawl space and converting it into a dry, usable storage space.

Steps to Installing a Complete Crawl Space Vapor Barrier System:

Install Airtight Doors:

Sealing your crawl space doors and vents stop the cycle of humidity and moisture entering from the outside air. However, water can still enter your crawl space in many ways.

Remove Any Standing Water Sources:

The next step is to eliminate any sources of flooding in your crawl space by installing a crawl space drain and sump pump system. This eliminates flooding water from your crawl space, but moisture can still enter directly through the concrete and floor in the form of water vapor. Having an effective crawl space water vapor system is the best way to prevent this.

Repair The Structure:

If your crawl space is sagging or damaged by prolonged mold and rot, the next step is to install crawl space support jacks to help restore your structure. This will help your floors stay even and stop any structural sagging upstairs.

Encapsulate & Insulate The Crawl Space:

To stop moisture from passing through your floors and porous concrete walls, a crawl space liner should be installed to completely encapsulate the crawl space. A durable liner allows for servicemen to use the space without damage while transforming your crawl space into usable storage space. This is also the best time to install crawl space insulation on your walls or floors.

Install A Dehumidifier:

Installing an energy efficient self draining crawl space dehumidifier will keep your space dry. Our crawl space dehumidifier system includes a filter that removes particles from the air as small as 2 microns.

In conjunction with a crawl space liner or vapor barrier, a dehumidifier ensures that your crawl space is protected from mold, dust mites, and mildew damage—permanently!
