The crawlspace is one of those areas we don’t think much about -until a problem forces us to take action. By that time, crawl space damage usually is significant, and may threaten the health and safety of your family and home. Don’t adopt an out-of-sight, out-of-mind attitude and expose yourself to moisture issues in the crawl space when waterproofing solutions prevent trouble before it starts. Benefits like those below await homeowners who seek Athens waterproofing solutions.
Cleaner, Fresher Air
As much as 60 percent of the air inside your home comes through the crawlspace. If the air in the crawl space is damp and moldy, that’s what comes into your living space. Exposure to this type of air can result in breathing problems and allergy-like symptoms.
Wood Rot and Structural Damage
The structural integrity of your home is impacted by moisture in the crawl space. Excess moisture can cause wooden floor joists and beams to rot, metal to rust, and walls and doors to crack and warp. The crawl space then becomes unable to support the home.
Reduced Energy Costs
Are you searching for effective ways to lower your monthly energy costs? Waterproofing the crawl space improves the flow of air from the A/C, in turn maintaining indoor air temperatures and reducing energy consumption costs.
Stop Pest Infestations
Cockroaches, termites, mice, and many other pests thrive in damp, dark crawlspaces. Finding their way inside your home from the crawl space is pretty easy, where a slew of problems present themselves in your home and to your family.
Eliminate the concerns above when you call Athens waterproofing specialists. Waterproofing your crawl space is one of the best investments you can make for your home. It protects its energy efficiency, reduces the risk of mold and mildew, improves indoor air quality, reduces moisture, and ensures your home never becomes a pest’s favorite place.
