Can the Air in Your Crawl Space Actually Effect the Air Quality in Your House?
Yes, the air that circulates through your home’s crawl space can have a hugely negative impact on the air quality in your house.
Moldy Crawl Space = Dangerous Air in Your Home
It may not seem like it, but much of the air that is in your crawl space (or basement) will actually be cycled through your main home. This means that anything that is in under your house:
- Insect Waste
- Rodent Waste and Debris…
…will actually end up in the air that is in your house, where you and your family breathe it in, causing health problems.
It is not uncommon for many of these problems to be written off, at first, as common the cold or allergies. But, as time goes by and your exposure to moldy air increases, your doctor will be able tot tell that you actually are having a reaction to the mold spores, dust or waste products that are in your air.
This will effect children and pets especially hard.
