When crawl spaces are left unsealed, it creates a damp, dark environment perfect for mold and mildew growth that damages the home air quality. Since the natural circulation of air flow is from bottom to top, the mold spores from crawl spaces are pulled into the air flow and will combine with the indoor air from the upper part of the home. This can result in poor indoor air quality, health risks, and even respiratory problems. This can all be avoided with the proper professional crawl space insulation services. Crawl space insulation will prevent the growth of mold and mildew, helping to make indoor air healthy while increasing the natural air flow throughout the home.

These conditions can be hazardous to health. Water damage, improper ventilation, and pest infestation are also all contributing factors to damaged and fallen insulation.

The fact is that a damp or deteriorating crawl space leads to the destruction of a home’s foundation, is an entry-way for unwanted guests, and is a breeding ground for molds and mildew.
