Ir home’s foundations to sink into the soft dirt, resulting in support systems that can’t hold the weight of your home – or worse – cracks in your foundation as your house shifts.


Encapsulation transforms damp or wet crawl spaces by elimination moisture intrusion points and air leaks. The improvement keeps your home dry and moisture, mildew, and damage free. How do we do this?


The first step to fixing your crawl space water issues is to pump the water out. Remember, sitting water has no natural drainage options, so short of getting under the house with a bucket, a sump pump might be the only solution.


The next step is to identify any leaks and repair those issues. Leaks can include water leaks and air leaks that exist outside of your crawl space vents.


Our encapsulation team is capable of designing a drainage system for excess water flows around your property. Remember that not any two houses are exactly the same, and often times the solution may be tailor-made for your home. Channeling water away from your home effectively is the first step to eliminating moisture problems around the house. This is an important step in keeping water away from the house.


To prevent future moisture from coming through, a vapor barrier is installed with an airtight reinforced polyethylene guard. This barrier runs under posts and wiring and runs up the foundation and walls.


If you’re seeing any of these potential hazards, or you’re seeing sitting water under your home, it’s time to take action. Contact us, at Summit Environmental Solutions at 703-520-5868 and see how we can help solve your water problems.
