Do You Know What’s Lurking in Your Crawl Space?

Do You Know What’s Lurking in Your Crawl Space?

While there may not be much glamour in your crawl space, there’s definitely nothing appealing about water under your home either. When water gets into your crawl space, it can rot the floor joists, which can lead to major structural damage in your home. Independent studies have shown that an open, untreated crawl space breeds mold, odors and gases that filter into your upstairs living environment. Up to half of the air you breathe in your home originates below grade, so it is important to ensure this area is dry and safe.

Allow Perma-Seal to transform your creepy crawl space into a clean, healthy and usable environment! Encapsulating your open dirt or gravel crawl space can help reduce your energy bills, and even add to the resale value of your home. Pair this with an air filtration system, like our SaniDry unit, and the air quality inside your home can be greatly improved. Moisture and humidity levels can also be reduced to further protect the health of you and your family. For a FREE inspection of your crawl space, You Know Who to Call - Perma-Seal at 800-421-7325.
