Crawl spaces are dirty due to their nature. Unfinished dirt floors in crawl spaces were once thought to improve air circulation throughout your home; but now we know the air in crawl spaces is unhealthy and can lead to mold growth and increased respiratory issues.
Athens Custom Flooring not only works on your floors, they work under your floors. They can close off and seal up your Virginia Beach crawl space, repair damage, use moisture control barriers, dry out humid air and create clean, usable storage space beneath your home. If you’re wondering whether or not your crawl space needs work, check out our checklist of symptoms of crawl space issues below.
Unusual Odors – If you notice musty odors or animal smells in your home and can’t identify the source, it may be coming from your crawl space.
Increased Energy Bills – If you’ve noticed your energy bill is higher than usual, but your usage hasn’t increased, have your crawl space inspected. When crawl space areas aren’t sealed properly, outdoor air can infiltrate the interior of your home, which puts a strain on your HVAC system to maintain an ideal indoor air temperature.
