Every day, we see crawl space insulation that has been ripped down and contaminated with rodent corpses, nesting materials, food caches, and rodent droppings. Vapor barriers are non-existent or improperly set down, excessive moisture has led to rotting wood and mold, and ducting is nested-in and chewed. Vents are sometimes completely blocked or incorrectly installed.
If this sounds like your home, call us now. We’ll go in and remove it all. We’ll take everything out that could compromise the air quality and energy efficiency of your home – from fungi to feces. After we’ve cleaned it all up, we’ll seal the holes to prevent rodents and other creatures from accessing your crawl space in the future.
From the time we arrive until the time we leave, we’ll take every precaution to make sure the inside of your home is a healthy, clean environment.
In summer, crawl space insulation prevents hot air from entering your home by resisting heat flow. This is a critical factor in your energy consumption. It’s natural for heat to move from warm places to colder places. Without crawl space insulation, the summer heat flows into your home, forcing your air conditioner to work hard to keep the inside cool. With insulation, most of that heat is kept out, which helps keep your energy bills in check. In winter, insulation does the opposite – it prevents heat loss.
