It’s essential to have your crawl space in Columbus, OH professionally cleaned.
Do you live in Columbus, OH, and are you concerned about the quality of the air that is flowing through your home? If so, it may be time to schedule a professional crawl space cleaning with our experienced team.
Although it’s crucial to ensure that your home’s crawl space is kept clean and dry, this is a part of a property that is often neglected for years on end. While keeping this area clean may not always seem important, a dirty crawl space can result in poor quality air flowing through your home – ultimately causing a deterioration in your family’s health and the overall condition of your property.
Our team of highly experienced crawl space cleaners will inspect this area of your home and perform a range of other services to ensure that its crawl space is clean and safe. These include:
- Taking all old insulation in the crawl space out and disposing of it
- Removing and/or treating any fungi, mold or mildew that may have accumulated over time
- Cleaning out debris that has accumulated through the years
- Removing rodent and other animal feces
- Clearing out any wood that may have rotted
- Cleaning and/or removing anything else that will have a negative effect on the quality of air in your home
Once our team has thoroughly cleaned out your crawl space area, they will need to install new insulation. Up to 50% of the air circulating through your home comes out of the crawl space, so it’s essential to keep this area clean and free from dampness. Installing proper insulation will ensure that the air you’re breathing is clean and safe, while also playing a part in reducing your energy bills over time.
Inserting a New Vapor Barrier
Part of our team’s crawl space cleaning and maintenance services includes the replacement of your home’s vapor barrier. This is normally a polyethylene sheet that is laid in order to prevent moisture from seeping upwards into your home over time.
Keeping dampness, mold, and mildew at bay is essential, as they can cause serious damage to your home and your family’s health and wellbeing over time. Having a replacement vapor barrier installed will also help prevent any wooden parts of your home from rotting prematurely as a result of being exposed to excess moisture.
