What You Can't See CAN Hurt You!

Soggy, smelly, moldy, and full of bugs, snakes, and rodents. Sounds like a great place to spend a beautiful, sunny, Saturday afternoon, doesn’t it? But if that’s the condition of your home’s crawl space, it’s exactly where somebody needs to be - and stat!

It’s hard to decide whether the risks to your health or the impending structural damage to your home’s foundation are more compelling. But still…
Soggy, smelly, moldy, and full of bugs, snakes, and rodents!
We don’t blame you for not wanting to go anywhere near it. Fortunately for you, at The Clean Air Co. that’s one of our main specialties!

It’s easy to let yourself go to the “out of sight, out of mind” place when it comes to your crawlspace. But don’t. Just don’t. It’s too important to risk. Your crawl space is crucially important for a number of reasons.

  • 1. Air from the crawlspace is eventually circulated into your living area. If mold or mildew are present, that could mean serious breathing problems for those living in or even visiting your home!
  •  
  • 2. When ductwork “sweats,”from moist air condensing on the ductwork in your crawl space causes the insulation around the ductwork to become wet, reducing its effectiveness.
  •  
  • 3. Mold and mildew can cause dangerous structural damage to floor joists.

The Clean Air Co. can create a crawl space vapor barrier installation to solve or prevent these problems. A properly installed vapor barrier will prevent the warm, humid air from entering the crawl space and will help you keep your home free from pollutants and toxins. Learn more about the vapor barrier material we use.

Every home is different, of course, and your home might not require a total encapsulation like the photos above. Sometimes, simply making sure that the ground is covered with a thick plastic is all that is needed. Call The Clean Air Co. today for a free evaluation and see if a crawl space vapor barrier installation of any kind is needed in your home, because remember, what you can’t see, CAN hurt you!
