Crawl spaces can be a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Ventilation is an important consideration when designing new homes or doing home improvement projects such as adding insulation, installing ductwork, or building a porch. Crawl space air quality is also important in existing homes where spaces are not properly ventilated. Crawl Space Ventilation Service provides three reasons why you need to ensure your Space is well-ventilated:
1) Mold and bacteria thrive in moist crawl spaces that lack adequate ventilation;
2) Unvented crawl spaces create moisture problems within the living areas of the home; and
3) Crawling pests such as ants, spiders, scorpions, and centipedes enter the home through the Crawl Space.
They are easy to access, but they are also highly vulnerable to water damage and deterioration from exposure to moisture in the ground. Ventilation is vital for maintaining a healthy home environment because it removes excess humidity that can cause structural damage over time.
Crawl spaces that have an inadequate ventilator system may also experience higher levels of carbon dioxide concentrations than those with proper airflow, which over time could lead to health problems for people who work in the building above the crawl space as well as occupants living in the home above it!
