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.
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.
