When you neglect your crawl space for a long time and let it become wet and dirty, you’re inviting cold, allergies and diseases into your home.
Stack Effect and Air Quality
The air circulates from top to bottom of your house and then goes up back again which is why you should make sure even those areas you don’t use are dry and clean. One area that often slips many a homeowner’s mind is the crawl space. Over time, a lot of tiny cracks and holes will appear, allowing access to moisture. Too much moisture under your home will encourage mold growth, and mold spores will travel through those tiny cracks up into your living room. However, our team can thoroughly clean the area and make the air inside your home allergen free!
Deny Shelter to Rodents
Those cracks and holes give access to rodents as well, not just to moisture. Mice and rats can squeeze through the tiniest of holes and shred your insulation in order to make nests. Not only can their constant gnawing cause structural damage, but also house fires! So take charge of this area ASAP because these pests multiply at amazing rates. Our services include, but are not limited to, trapping and removing the vermin and their feces as well as rodent-proofing.
What about Energy Efficiency?
Rodents can damage the insulation trying to make a perfect home for their young and excessive moisture can make the insulation too heavy and cause it to hang and fall off. Ineffective insulation means that your HVAC system will have to work much harder to reach and maintain the desired temperature which will drastically increase your utility bills. Not to mention the money you’ll have to spend repairing your HVAC unit. So, if we’ve got you thinking about a complete crawl space makeover, give us a call and let us do the dirty work for you.
