The quality of the air you breathe has a significant effect on your health. But what may come as a surprise is that the air in your home is likely more polluted than the air you are exposed to outside. Indoor air quality is a rapidly growing problem that impacts people with pre-existing breathing conditions, as well as those who are otherwise healthy. Some of the most common side effects of exposure to polluted air include headaches, sore throats, congestion, and eye irritation. Prolonged exposure has been linked to more serious health concerns, making it a valid point of discussion.
If your Greenville, South Carolina home has a crawlspace, as many do, the quality of your indoor air may be impacted by this area. Up to half of the air that flows through your living space can come from the crawlspace, but it’s an area of a home that’s rarely accessed. Moisture issues, mold growth, and pest infestations are just a few of the problems that can impact your indoor air quality. But at Air Kool Heat & Air, we specialize in crawlspace encapsulation solutions that protect our clients from the harmful effects of polluted air.
Crawlspace encapsulation is a process that involves sealing the space to prevent moisture from entering. The result is a clean and dry crawlspace that no longer has problems related to excess moisture and mold. You can breathe cleaner, healthier air and feel better while at home.
