Do you know if the crawlspace in your home is sealed? This is something that can help prevent pests from invading your home, among many other benefits. Here is a quick explanation of what crawl space sealing is and how it can be advantageous to your home.

Unfortunately, crawl spaces are an area of your house that is prone to issues with moisture due to condensation and evaporation. Pests are attracted to moisture, so crawl spaces are a prime place where an infestation can begin. There is a way to keep this from happening, though. Crawlspace sealing is the process of installing a waterproof barrier all around your crawl space that will keep rodents, insects, and moisture out.
Besides keeping pests out of your home, there are several other benefits of crawl space sealing, including:

  • Mold and mildew prevention– Keeping moisture out of your crawl space will prevent the growth of mold and mildew, which can cause some serious health problems.
  • Increased home efficiency– Many people see lower heating and cooling costs in their homes after sealing their crawlspace.
  • Stronger foundation– Sealing your crawl space will help prevent damage to the foundation of your home.
  • Prevents water damage– When you seal your crawl space, it will prevent water damage in that area of your home.
  • Prevents condensation on your windows– Have you ever noticed water condensing on your windows? Locking moisture out of your crawl space will help to prevent this from happening.
