Crawl spaces are susceptible to moisture and deterioration problems. Why? Soil has high humidity. This humidity causes a crawl space to become damp. This environment can harbor mold, creating a living space for pests and great an unhealthy environment.
This unhealthy environment directly affects your home and your family. The natural airflow of a home is from bottom to top (ground to sky). As your home naturally breathes, the moist air (and everything in it) flows up and into the living areas of the home.
There are many benefits to air sealing and insulating your home’s crawl space:
- You create a more comfortable and healthier living environment for you and your family.
- You can save on energy costs by not having to heat or cool the air from the crawl space that is pulled into your home (a result of natural air flow).
- You protect the structure of your home. Reducing moisture in your crawl space keeps your home’s foundation dry and intact.
