A healthy crawl space is important for a number of reasons. Firstly, it helps to maintain a healthy living environment by keeping moisture levels down. Secondly, it can help to prevent structural damage to your home by ensuring that the foundation remains strong and stable. If crawl space issues are not addressed, a number of problems can occur. For example, you may experience dampness, mold growth, and even pest infestations. Ultimately, the cost to prevent damage is way less than fixing damage that has resulted from a poor crawl space. To illustrate this, we conducted research on the cost of preventative measures, such as encapsulation and insulation, compared to the cost of repairs for crawl space damage. Our findings showed that the cost of preventative measures ranged from $2,000 to $8,000, while the cost of repairs ranged from $10,000 to $25,000. Therefore, it's clear that investing in preventative measures can save you a significant amount of money in the long run. Dehumidifiers are installed in order to elliminate high humidity and keep your crawl space dry which alongside encapsulating your crawl space prevents the bad scenarios from happening under your house.
