Crawl Space Air Quality
In addition to preventing water from damaging your crawl space, the most important part of crawl space encapsulation is being able to control humidity levels and improve your crawl space air quality. A large portion of the air in a home will travel up through the crawl space, therefore it is important that this air is of the highest quality. Healthy air can improve the overall health of people in the home, it will help prevent the growth of mildew and mold in the crawl space.
The EPA states that indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental health risks. Common sources of indoor air pollution are building materials and furnishings such as insulation, damp carpet, and certain types of furniture, household cleaners, humidifiers, and even outdoor air pollution. The installation of a crawl space air filtration and dehumidification system can both reduce the impact of these pollutants as well as help control the overall humidity levels in your home.
Crawl Space Dehumidifier
The Perma-Dry™ is the perfect dehumidifier for crawl spaces that experience high levels of relative humidity because it can keep that level below 50%, preventing mold growth. Not only does it remove mold spores, allergens and excess humidity, but it can also purify the air throughout your entire home.
The Perma-Dry™ has the addition of a filter system to keep the air clean. This filter removes mold spores, dust mite droppings, captures virus-size airborne particles, dust and other particulates and also features a carbon-infused filter that can help eliminate odors.

Vapor Barrier in crawl Space
On Monday of this week, the team of Daniel, Angel S, and Raul T showed up to start the project. They put down tarps, put on protective clothing and made certain the pathway was clear from the job site to the truck parked in the driveway.. They worked quickly, quietly and very professionally. When finished they cleaned everything, let me examine their work (although I am not qualified to evaluate their work beyond the visual) and then departed. Excellent workmen who are a credit to Perma Seal.
