Do you know what kind of scary things are lurking in your crawl space? We're not talking ghosts and goblins. We're talking things that could be dangerous to your health if they make their way into your home!
If your crawlspace is infested with mold and mildew, 50% of the air you breathe on your first floor could be contaminated, causing you or your family members to cough, have asthma attacks, and get headaches.
Crawl spaces usually have poor ventilation, and since they're right on top of the moist soil, they're a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. This can make your house smell musty, and if the humidity creeps up into your home it can cause health problems AND cause your wood floors to warp or rot. Improving ventilation below the home allows moisture to escape before reaching your living space.
