Why Crawl Space Encapsulation?
I was a home inspector for 15 years and had been in thousands of crawlspaces. Having a family living over open dirt ground just never made sense to me. Even with plastic over the dirt, I could smell that crawlspace smell as soon as I walked in the house...and so could the buyers and the agents. Musty, wet, dust and dirt has a unique odor.
Then on one inspection I walked in and literally had no idea the house was on a crawl until I couldn't find the basement door. When I finally found the door to the crawl, I discovered that the crawlspace was pure white and clean. And it had no odor at all.
I usually dreaded this part of the inspection, having to go down under the house. I put on a dust mask, coveralls, an old Elmer Fudd hat with the ear flops, and gloves. I expected to get really dirty. This time I didn't need anything. In fact, my boots left marks on the crawlspace floor because it was cleaner than me!
I really could have taken a nap down there--it was that comfortable. I crawled around and didn't even need knee pads.
The owners were using this area like a small basement. They had storage totes, Christmas stuff, boxes of clothes, scrap books...you name it.
That's when I saw the wisdom behind crawlspace encapsulation. Read more on this site about what crawlspace encapsulation is, the benefits and costs involved.
