Crawl spaces are located underneath your home, so the chance of getting a water runoff is quite common. Unfortunately, a common design choice for crawl space floors happens to be dirt, so if left alone for too long, they can become a bad breeding ground for mold. Vapor barrier installation provides the crawl space with a moisture protection layer to prevent the negative effects of moisture such as mold, floor failure, increased electricity costs, odors, insects, dust mites, and worsened asthma or allergy symptoms.

Crawl spaces are usually ground level or subterranean areas with damp dirt floors that water that can easily soak up moisture. This can lead to things like mold and mildew growth, insects, rotting wood, and more. These issues cost a lot to repair, and can actually leave your property uninhabitable due to health risks.
A vapor barrier is a kind of material that’s used to resist moisture from entering through the wall, ceiling, and even the floor. Essentially, a vapor barrier’s job is to create a layer of protection between your home and the dirty crawl space beneath it. It’s also useful as an energy-saving method so you can lower your heating bills while ensuring that your home feels more comfortable.
