Crawlspace Encapsulation Services

Dirt crawl spaces are common in many homes and present unique problems for the homeowner. Dirt, under the home, transmits humidity, odors and radon gas, and also provides rodents and insects an easy path into the upper living portions of the home. The humidity and dampness that is inherent in crawl spaces can also cause structural damage to the wood framing, carpets, floors and walls. This environment is a breeding ground for mold, mildew, rodents and pests, all of which present a real health concern.


What is "lurking" under
your home in your crawl space? Water? Fungus? Insects? Rodents? Radon Gas? Crawl spaces can be a homeowner's unseen, forgotten nightmare. Water and humidity can destroy the structural integrity of your home. Bugs and rodents often enter your living space through the crawl space. Ignoring the issue is not a solution. ILLINI Crawl Space and Basement Technologies using Safe Crawl™, specializes in solving this common, yet dangerous, problem.

We have designed a solution to the dirt crawl space problem. Our impenetrable 20 mil thick Safe Crawl™ liner, that is professionally sealed to the walls and overlaps onto the floor, will completely envelope (encapsulate) the dirt floor. This provides a permanent solution to the harmful effects of your crawl space and creates a conditioned environment similar to the upper living portions of your home.

Home airflow mechanics, called the "whole house effect", is the natural airflow which travels towards the roof, creating a suction type effect on the crawl space dirt. This process will cause dampness and humidity to rise making the environment in your living space similar to that of your crawl space. Using the Safe Crawl™ liner with proper dehumidification will reduce humidity and possible mold growth throughout the home thereby making your crawl space a conditioned part of your home. It can also help dry up structural wood and framing and reduce heating and cooling costs.

A sump pump is a pump used to remove water that has accumulated in a water collecting sump pit, commonly found in the basement or crawl space of homes. Many standard pumps that are available today are inherently unreliable or cannot keep up with the volume of water. This creates potential problems in a crawl space where a failed pump can lead to a flooding nightmare.

Additionally, the Water Grabber® can hold two pumps, if needed, thus doubling the pumping capacity.

    It went well Bill came treated the kitchen and we were less then a week from our quarterly outside service so he took care of that too. I have done business with them since 2005 never had a problem or a bug, at least not for long.
