The Health of a Home Begins in the Crawlspace
Many homeowners don’t realize the impact that their dirty crawlspace has on the homeowners health and the energy efficiency of their home. Crawlspaces are usually only thought of a couple of times per year when the musty, moldy smell returns.
We like to pretend that the crawlspace doesn’t have an effect on our home as long as we don’t open the hatch. The crawlspace however, is actually one of the most important areas of our homes.
Chimney Effect of a Home’s Airflow
A home’s natural airflow is like a chimney effect. Outside air is drawn into the lowest levels of the home and rises, like the air within a chimney, throughout the upper levels of the house.
Because of the chimney effect, the condition of a home’s crawlspace has a direct impact on a homeowner’s health. Studies have shown that up to 60% of the air we breathe on the first floor of a home comes from its crawlspace or basement.
In a humid crawlspace, the air is full of mold, fungi, dust mites and other allergens. Breathing this air can cause increased allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems. Thus, it is extremely important to correct this potentially hazardous situation before problems occur.
Installing a Crawlspace Liner is a helpful, energy efficient crawlspace solution. It addresses all the issues that plague unhealthy crawlspaces:
• Damp, musty smells
• High indoor humidity during summer
• Creaking floors
• Bugs and rodents
• Cold floors in the winter
• Increased respiratory problems
• Standing water after a heavy rain
Crawlspace Liners are Essential to Control Humidity in Crawlspaces!
Puncture and Tear Resistant
The Crawlspace Liner is a thick sandwich of high density polyethylene and molten polyethylene layers with an added layer of polyester cord reinforcement, making it virtually puncture and tear resistant.
A Bright White Finish
The Crawlspace Liner also has a bright, white finish to create a clean, bright environment in the crawlspace. Using a Crawlspace Liner will create an amazing transformation and add value to any home.
