Get Rid of Bacteria, Mold, Allergens, and Dust Mites in the Crawl Space
While we can not always be sure, the condition of the crawl space has a great impact on the interior living space of a house. When warm air rises and starts leaving the upper levels, this results in the creation of a vacuum. This phenomenon is also known as the “stack effect”. The air gets pulled upwards through the crawl space, basement, and lower levels of the home. Due to the “stack effect,” mold, dust mites, bacteria, and allergens start entering the home. Mold spores tend to spread to the other areas of the home including the bathroom and kitchen, typically where they can multiply. Choose our waterproofing crawl space cost effective services to get the best results.
What is the Impact of the Stack Effect?
The stack effect makes it quite tedious to regulate the temperature of the house. It also increases the energy bill prices and causes damage to the house over time. There is a wide range of pernicious effects that the stack effect has. As per the CDC, mold can lead to fungal infections specifically for people who have lung problems or compromised immune systems. Mold also causes several symptoms including runny nose, coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, nose and throat, watery eyes, and dry skin in people who have mold allergies.
High Quality Crawl Space Encapsulation and Ventilation
- Encapsulate the crawl space using a thick vapor barrier that enables sealing the entry of moisture, organic material, dirt, microbes, vapors, soil gases (including radon), mold spores, bacteria, and pests.
- Ventilate beneath the vapor barrier that helps in evacuating the pathogens, vapors, and soil gases, and dry the encapsulated area.
- Install an appropriately sized dehumidifier for conditioning space at or below 50% relative humidity.
- They also install a sump crock and appropriately sized sump pump to discharge any potential intrusion of water.
