NOT JUST A MOLD PROBLEM – Crawl Space Encapsulation

Besides being a breeding ground for mold your crawl space has many other dangers. Did you know that up to 50% of the air in the first floor of your home comes from the crawlspace. In southeastern cities like Nashville and other areas in middle Tennessee, homes built on crawlspaces have a tough time handling moisture. Without crawlspace encapsulation, dangerous gases such as Radon and polluted air are allowed into the home, leading to allergies, asthma and a host of other issues. AuntieGen Crawlspace Encapsulation, Humidity Barrier and Humidity Control will handle the following issues:

  • Poor air quality in your living space
  • Minor allergies to severe infections (breathing difficulties)
  • Uncomfortable humidity levels in summer and cold floors in winter
  • Higher heating and cooling costs (15% to 35% higher) and decreased life of HVAC/HEPA units and ducts
  • Structural Decay, including rotted sills, joists, floorboards, stuck doors/windows and buckled hardwood floors
  • Condensation on air conditioning equipment, duct work, insulation, water pipes and truss plates
  • Radon gas
  • Insect and rodent infestations

If your crawlspace hasn’t been encapsulated yet, take control of the air quality in your home and your family’s health! Contact AuntieGen today.
