Have you ever said something along the lines of this? 'I'm never down there, why would I care what the crawlspace looks like?' Well, your crawlspace is much more than aesthetics. It's the baseline for the air quality in your home, home to pests like mice, spiders, and other unwanted tenants, and it can be the source of hundreds of dollars that you will never see back.
The air quality in your home starts at the lowest level. Wet crawlspaces spread high humidity throughout the home, which can cause mold and mildew to grow. Mold and mildew can cause health issues like asthma and allergies. Additionally, if you are concerned about aesthetics of your home, high levels of humidity may cause sticking doors, windows, and warped hardwood floors. Getting your crawlspace encapsulated and waterproofed can prevent these whole-home health concerns.
A crawlspace that is not encapsulated is often home to mice, spiders, and other bugs. The crawlspace is how they first get in, but it's easy for them to travel throughout the whole home. To help stop the unwanted house guests, CleanSpace can help.
Why is the crawlspace costing you money? A crawlspace that is not insulated costs you more money than you may realize on your energy bill. A lot of energy can be lost while inadvertently heating the crawlspace, and since cold stone or concrete walls allow for an easy heat transfer, the outside too. Not to mention, there are often pipes running through the crawlspace. When exposed to the elements, these pipes can freeze and burst, ensuring you pay even more money you don't want to spend. People who don't enjoy spending cash on bills love that thermal insulation options, like SilverGlo, which bring the space up to code, and trap the heat so it doesn't transfer to the soil outside. Bonus money saving tip: use the insulated crawlspace as storage instead of renting a storage garage.
Encapsulating your crawl space will save you money on your energy bills, improve air quality in your house, and help with insect control. Get your free estimate here!
