Why Worry About Your Crawlspace?
Up to 40% of the air we breathe on the first floor of our homes comes from the crawlspace or
basement. Excess moisture in the crawlspace supports microbiological growth, dust, mites, and
other insects. Poor quality air and allergens caused from mold spores and dust mite droppings – the
two largest indoor allergens – can affect your health. Moisture can also cause structural damage to
your home’s wood framing and degrade some forms of insulation.
