Lying 40 miles southwest of Chicago, Joliet is a city in Illinois with a population of about 147,000. One of the state’s fastest growing cities, it is the fourth-most populated in Illinois and has been featured in several TV shows and films.
The city is pounded yearly by thunderstorms, mostly common in spring and summer. Add to that the harsh winters, many basements and crawl spaces in the city tend to be more wet than dry the whole year round.
Crawl spaces are similar to basements, except you can’t stand up in one, hence the name. The best way to protect your crawl space from unwanted moisture is by having it encapsulated. Encapsulation, in a nutshell, is when your crawl space is properly waterproofed to prevent water from leaking in, as well as improving its ventilation to prevent mold from growing.
