How is the air quality in your home?
The condition of the air in the sub floor area beneath your home has a huge effect on the overall atmosphere within the home. Elevated moisture levels in the air space beneath your home can result in a damp sub floor, which can lead to wood decay and rotting floor boards and even rotten bearers. As a result you may find smelly, unhealthy odours invading your living areas.
Poor sub floor circulation can provide the perfect conditions for the growth of mould and fungi, and for termite infestation. Unhealthy air quality in your home can lead to allergies, respiratory conditions, and asthma and lung problems.
By ensuring your home has adequate sub floor ventilation you can protect your health and that of your family from harmful mould and bacterial spores. You can also protect your property from timber damage caused by excess moisture, and from termite attack.
There are various ways to improve the ventilation in subfloor area. Sometimes we improve ventilation by installing vents in the subfloor to create sufficient airflow, in other cases we may need to install fans to create the circulation necessary for a healthy sub floor. We can also offer fans powered by solar panels to reduce your energy costs.
