Reasons a clean crawl space is important
Many folks view their crawl space as something of no importance. They presume it to be the least important part of their house. But most people don’t know that their crawl space plays an important role determining the quality of air and energy efficiency in their home.
Poor Air Quality:
The stack effect is the unique pattern of air circulation in your homes. It is the ways which makes the air in your attic and crawls space circulate into every space of your home. The air constantly moves in a rotatory motion from the crawl space to your room and slowly to the whole house. This leads to moulds or animal infestations in your crawl space.
Low Energy Efficiency:
A poorly maintained crawl space can cause moulds to form which can lead to cracks or allow moisture into the crack space. This can further depreciate the insulation of your home and affect the energy efficiency.
