The underside of your home is a busy place! While you are walking above it, your crawlspace is filtering clean and dirty air, processing moisture, releasing natural gases like radon, and much more. Unfortunately, because there is so much going on, sometimes your crawlspace gets overwhelmed. When that happens, you may begin to feel the impact of what’s going on underneath your home up above in your living spaces.
If the upper floors of your home feel more humid and it’s harder to address indoor air quality concerns, this could be a direct result of your crawlspace being on overload. One solution that may provide beneficial is to add a crawlspace vapor barrier, which will help your crawlspace process moist air and other pollutants and protect your living spaces from contaminants.
A crawlspace vapor barrier can work wonders for your home, not just in terms of indoor air quality, but also in terms of comfort. You may notice that you can set the thermostat and leave it without feeling a change in temperature from room to room. Furthermore, if you live in an area prone to moisture problems, a crawlspace vapor barrier could offer the protection you need against moisture control issues like mold and mildew damage.
