Why Do I Need Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation is a critical investment for protecting the health and safety of your home. By creating a sealed environment, you'll keep moisture out and improve indoor air quality while saving energy costs.
When it comes to crawl space encapsulation, there are several components that go into achieving a successful result. A vapor barrier installed along the floor and walls of the space helps to prevent moisture from seeping in. It's also important to install a dehumidifier to maintain an ideal humidity level - one that is too low or too high can create an unhealthy environment. Additionally, if your crawl space has been exposed to mold, special measures should be taken to ensure it’s properly cleaned and any affected material is removed or soda blasted.
By investing in crawl space encapsulation, you’re taking important steps to ensure the health and safety of your home. Not only will this improve indoor air quality and make your family more comfortable, it can also save money on energy costs.
"The whole process was great. Everyone we interacted with was professional and courteous. Celeste was great. Russell, Chase, and Will were terrific and did a great job. We no longer run a dehumidifier in our cabin, which we were having to run even in the dead of winter. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone"
"We've had a lot of work done on our home recently and these guys have been by far the best to work with. Russell, Chase, Will and Ethan were absolute joys to work with. They were very professional, cleaned up completely every day (I swear the garage was cleaner after they left than it was before they got there!)."
"Crawl space ninja is great. Celeste and the rest of the team did a great job at assessing the needs of our crawl space and applying the appropriate solution. They showed up on time, communicated well, and provided high quality service and products. I would highly recommend them to anyone."

Crawl Space Vapor Barrier
Crawl space vapor barrier or vapor retarder is the key to controlling humidity and flooding in your crawl space. However, many contractors make promises that installing a basic loose lay vapor barrier alone will be effective in controlling humidity levels. We have found this not to be true. Improperly installed reinforced vapor barriers and multi-layer vapor barriers can actually create crawl space odors and other moisture-based problems.
At Crawl Space Ninja, we use a unique solid-state vapor barrier that is installed with our proprietary approach to crawl space encapsulation, which means your home will be properly protected from the damaging effects of excessive humidity.
Crawl Space Humidity
Crawl space encapsulation is an important part of maintaining a healthy home. By properly sealing your crawl space, you can ensure that humidity and soil gases are controlled in accordance with EPA guidelines – improving indoor air quality and protecting your family from viruses, bacteria, mold, and dust mites. A quality vapor barrier should be installed to keep moisture out of your crawl space, while a dehumidifier should be used to regulate the moisture levels inside. This will optimize air quality and reduce health risks associated with excess humidity. By taking the steps necessary to properly encapsulate your crawl space and control humidity levels, you can rest assured knowing that your home is dry and comfortable.
When it comes to encapsulating your crawl space and controlling humidity, trust the professionals. We have the knowledge, experience, and expertise necessary to get the job done correctly from start to finish – ensuring that your home is healthy and comfortable for years to come.

Crawl Space Mold
Crawl space encapsulation provides homeowners with a comprehensive mold removal and prevention solution. It begins by controlling humidity levels and drying out the area to remove any existing moisture. This is followed by cleaning up visible mold growth using proper safety procedures, such as wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) like gloves, goggles, and a mask. After the visible mold has been removed, a mold cleaner is applied to attack the root system and food source. Finally, preventative measures are taken to ensure that no new mold can grow in the crawl space, such as installing dehumidifiers or controlling humidity levels. By following this protocol, homeowners can improve indoor air quality and reduce their exposure to allergens from mold.
Crawl Space Waterproofing
At Crawl Space Ninja, we understand that water in your crawl space or basement flooding can cause significant damage. That's why our approach to crawl space waterproofing is designed to address both current and future flooding risks.
Our comprehensive system starts with a new vapor barrier installation. Encapsulating your crawl space without addressing hydrostatic pressure or future flooding can be a costly mistake. That's why our system includes a full perimeter french drain and sump pump to help push water out of your home, plus a properly installed vapor barrier to keep it from coming back in.
With Crawl Space Ninja on the job, you can rest easy knowing that your crawl space is protected from future flooding and water damage.
Crawl Space Insulation
Crawl space insulation is an important part of creating a comfortable and energy-efficient home. According to the Department of Energy, the crawl space or basement is the second most important area in which to insulate and air seal for optimal comfort. At Crawl Space Ninja, we understand that there’s much more to effective crawl space insulation than simply throwing in batt fiberglass. For instance, we recommend air sealing and insulating the rim joist to keep conditioned air where it belongs—inside your home. We also use foundation wall insulation that is approved for ground contact. Additionally, to control humidity levels and insulate the crawl space, we install R-10 foamboard in open vents. When you choose Crawl Space Ninja for crawl space encapsulation, you can trust that your home will be properly sealed to keep it comfortable year-round.
Crawl Space Ventilation
Crawl space ventilation is an important part of keeping your crawl space healthy and safe. Without proper ventilation, your home can develop odors and soil gases that are hazardous for your health. Crawl Space Ninja provides an effective solution to ensure that your home is properly ventilated and humidity controlled.
We understand the importance of providing adequate ventilation in a crawl space, and that’s why we use vent fans along with dehumidifiers to create an effective system. This ensures that your home is not only well-ventilated but also has the right humidity levels. Crawl Space Ninja makes sure that your ventilation system is set up correctly and meets all industry standards.
