Today we're going to talk about crawlspaces. I'm sure you've been there if you're a homeowner. It's dark, damp, and dirty. You'd like to use it for storage but you don't feel you can because you don't want to get spiders or mice in your things. Its kind of frustrating huh!

What about air quality? If you're anything like me, this time of the year is hard on your allergies. Pollens, trees, grasses, dust, and smoke from hundreds of daily field burns make you a itchy, sneezy, eye-watery mess. Your home should be a refuge from those poor air quality irritants but sometimes, it just isn't. 

Did you know that your home actually draws trace elements up into the air in your home, through the ground? It's called stack effect. Now, what does that mean to you and your family? Well, what it can mean is that things like methane or radon are in the soils and could be drawn up into the air in your home. I don't know about you but I like my air methane and radon free. What about mold? Even in our high desert climate we can still get a good degree of moisture in our crawlspaces. Mold mitigation is not only extremely expensive but it usually only happens after it's been there, in your home, for a long time. Mold spores are a huge health hazard and homeowners definitely want to take care of those issues quickly.

So what can be done about this you ask? Well, we have an awesome product called Clean Space. It can mitigate radon and methane, improve moisture levels, mitigate mold, keep critters out, and even help with keeping heating costs down. We can completely isolate your home from the soil underneath it and help you save money on energy, improve your air quality in your home, and provide you with a critter-free storage area under your home.

If you think this would be of interest to you, please give us a call.
