Vapor Barrier-Crawl Space Sealing
Vapor Barrier-Crawl Space Sealing & Mitigation in The Greater Denver Metro Area
If you have a crawl space you already know how nasty they can be! Did you know they also can be a "Danger" to your health? Although it is possible to mitigate radon in a house without sealing the crawlspace, in some cases it may be necessary.
Radon Gas flows into your home from both the basement and the crawl space. If the Radon levels are within reason, it is possible to mitigate without sealing the crawl space when the area is small to medium in size and a few feet above basement level.
Homes with higher levels of Radon gas that have large size crawl spaces are likely to need a vapor barrier. The final decision is yours, unless your house sits on a crawl space, sub-floor or when the crawl space is at basement level. In these cases, a vapor barrier is required if you plan to mitigate for radon gas.

Where is my crawl space? What is a Crawl space and its purpose?
Crawl Spaces can be found in most houses, but some people don’t even realize they have one. This area of your home typically contains plumbing lines and heating units. Most are less square footage than your home, but in some cases can take up the entire foot print. This is known as a subfloor. Crawl spaces are dirty, dark and usually poorly insulated, or not insulated at all. Crawl spaces can give off unpleasant and sometimes harmful orders and gases.
Why is maintaining your crawl space important and what can you do?
We recommend that your crawl space be sealed no matter what the Radon levels are because it helps with the radon system's operation. Sealing the crawl space also helps aesthetically, increases energy efficiency, helps with moisture control, and creates a protected area for storing valuables.
If you smell an odd or unpleasant odor coming from your crawl space, you should take action.
- Sealing plastic through-out the crawl space will typically resolve this issue. If you plan to clean up your crawl space and use it for storage, we recommend using an upgraded plastic.
- We can also install a moister control fan in homes that are not already equipped with a radon mitigation system.
- Remember, Radon gas is tasteless, odorless and the most dangerous. A vapor barrier and a radon mitigation system are both strongly recommended if you have high radon gas levels in your home.
