A HEALTHY HOME BEGINS IN THE CRAWLSPACE
Rot is the leading cause of sagging floors and unhealthy living conditions. Homeowners have come to accept a wet and dirty crawlspace. Out of sight… Out of mind! Many donʼt realize how destructive a wet crawlspace is to the health of their family and energy efficiency of their home. Many homes suffer from floor rot due to the “chimney effect” where humid outside air is drawn into an unsealed cold crawlspace. It is this cold, moist air that rises to replace the dry air leaving your home. Studies have shown that the air that you breathe in the first floor of your home comes from crawlspaces that are unsealed.
DO YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH?
Most people never consider how dangerous and costly it is to have moisture in their crawlspace. Weakened floor supports, poor energy management, and toxic molds are all common problems in homes with wet basements. Usually, those musty smells are just ignored, but they are actually tell-tale signs there is a problem that needs fixing. The health of your home and your family starts with a dry crawlspace.
