Crawl Space Encapsulation

Prevent moisture and mold

Tired of accepting that your crawl space acts as a breeding ground for mold and mildew? The problem is more serious than you might realize. Moisture and germs growing down there will eventually pose a threat to your entire home. Potomac View Energy in Maryland can add crawl space encapsulation for humidity control, water damage prevention, pest management, and more.

As part of our home waterproofing services, we offer professional-quality crawl space encapsulation for homes in Baltimore and beyond. Potomac View Energy serves Annapolis, Bethesda, Silver Spring, Towson, Frederick, and other Maryland towns as well as Leesburg and Loudoun County, VA.

Why Add Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Homes are built with crawl spaces in no small part because raising the floor helps prevent moisture problems in the home. However, all too often, the crawl space itself becomes a pooling ground for standing water and condensation. Venting was once thought to alleviate the issue, but we now know that vented crawl spaces can actually trap moisture and become even more humid than it is outdoors.

In many situations, crawl space encapsulation is the best solution because it can:

    • Prevent water damage in the crawl space
    • Protect your home from water damage
    • Maintain a steady, low humidity level
    • Deter pests and vermin from nesting
    • Improve indoor air quality and removes musty, mildewy smells
    • Add insulation for better home energy efficiency

Installation Process

Adding crawl space encapsulation the right way takes plenty of preparation and painstaking effort. After all, encapsulating a crawl space while it currently has a moisture problem or other issues can lead to unintended negative effects. At Potomac View Energy, our crew knows how to perform crawl space encapsulation that works magnificently for many, many years.

We provide crawl space encapsulation services in Maryland with a proven step-by-step approach:

  • Remove standing water and resolve moisture issue
