Crawlspace Encapsulation or simply encapsulation is a process used to seal the susceptible components of the crawlspace from the invading spores of mold and fungus. While there are rumors out there that encapsulation is the end all solution to protecting your home from these invasive microbes, that is far from the truth. Encapsulation, if used properly, can absolutely provide extended protection and help deter new growth from starting on the materials. This being said, if materials are encapsulated without proper treatment from an adequate microbe destroying chemical there is still the probability that your problem will not be fixed, instead it will just be covered up and will prevent Certified Inspectors from being able to accurately perform their inspections. This means that even if things are encapsulated, there can still be microbial growth inside the materials, or after a period of time the growth will actually grow through the paint. Think of encapsulation as the keystone to a job done correctly, not an alternative to proper methods.
