5 Important Benefits of Sealed Crawlspaces

Many homeowners have never considered the benefits of sealed crawlspaces.  It is something we hardly ever think about, but the effects of choosing to seal your crawlspace can be lasting.  Here at Clint Miller Exterminating, we are happy to help you weigh all of the considerations for a sealed crawlspace.  

Some of the benefits of our sealed crawlspace services:

  1. Control Excessive Moisture - A sealed crawlspace helps to keep moisture out.  Often, homeowners don’t consider the type of damage that can be caused by too much moisture in the crawlspace area, but over time, damage can be fairly significant.  Excessive moisture in the crawlspace can cause a musty smell in your home, warp hardwood floors, rot wood supports, and cause insect infestations.  
     
  2. Save on Energy Costs - When sealed properly, sealed crawlspaces can significantly lower your monthly energy costs.  This is because no outside air can penetrate the area below your home, leading to a more effective insulating system.  
     
  3. Enjoy Warmer Floors in the Winter - Air flowing into the space below your home can cause a chilly draft.  This can move up through your floors and leave hardwood feeling cold as ice. You can help to eliminate this with a sealed crawl space.
     
  4. Eliminate Future Maintenance Expenses - Damage that can come from moisture, animals, mold, and insects can be eliminated with a sealed crawlspace.
     
  5. Experience a Healthier Home with Improved Air Quality - When you work to eliminate unnecessary air movement, you are in better control of the air that makes its way into your home.  

These are just some of the benefits of sealed crawlspaces.  For more information and a free quote, please contact us today.  We service Mt. Pleasant, Concord, Albemarle, Salisbury, Charlotte and surrounding areas.
