There’s nothing better than springtime in the Pacific Northwest. The blooming flowers, warm weather, and rays of sunshine make all of those months of rain worth it.
However, with the beautiful weather come seasonal allergies that affect millions of people every year.
Your home is supposed to be a refuge from your allergies, but if your crawl space isn’t sealed with a vapor barrier, the allergens under your home are more than likely making your allergies worse.
An encapsulated crawl space from TerraFirma isolates the wet, exposed dirt under your home by using a 120 mil thick liner. The liner serves as a vapor barrier that significantly reduces the chances of allergens such as mold and dust mites moving out of your crawl space and into your home.
The dehumidifier TerraFirma installs in crawl spaces reduces relative humidity to less than 60% and can extract several hundred gallons of moisture every day. Reducing moisture in the air helps remove condensation, which can produce mold, mildew, and other allergens.
Improving your home’s air quality is one of the best ways to reduce your seasonal sniffles this spring. If you feel like your crawl space might be the source of your poor indoor air quality, contact TerraFirma to schedule your free inspection!
