CRAWLSPACE REPAIR - LAFAYETTE, IN
Crawlspace Repair - Serving Indiana
The crawlspace can often be a dark and uninviting place. Bugs, molds and moisture love to find their way into your crawlspace and make their home there. Even though your crawlspace includes vents that help with the overall climate underneath your home, this isn't always enough.
Even with vents, it’s still possible for standing water to accumulate during periods of heavy rain, and this can take days to completely dry out. This moist, humid setting creates the perfect environment for mold, mildew and fungus to grow.
If these continue to grow, they can develop into a health risk for your family. This humidity also creates extra moisture that penetrates the wood foundation. This can lead to the development of wood rot and may attract termites.
Your crawlspace is one of the most important parts of your home’s foundation

DID YOU KNOW?
According to a study by the Mayo Clinic, nearly all chronic sinus infections are a result of mold. Since up to 40% of the air we breathe in the home can come from the crawlspace, mold in the crawlspace means mold in the home. The EPA recommends keeping humidity levels in the crawlspace to 40%–50% to reduce the likelihood of mold formation.
