CleanSpace Crawl Space lining may cost more upfront, however, it can also save a homeowner money in the long run. CleanSpace effectively prevents moisture vapor which is the number one cause of mold and mildew growth, rotting floor joists, efflorescence and a number of other problems that become much more costly once they need repair.
