Are the floors in your home soft or bouncy? Do they creak as you walk across them? These symptoms can be a sign of a larger, underlying issue with the infrastructure of your home.
Thanks to vented, dirt crawl spaces and excessive moisture below the home, floor systems are at risk of wood rot and support settlement.
Most of the time, these structural repairs are completed without ever fixing the root of the problem! It is only a matter of time before your home’s infrastructure is at risk again.
Vented dirt crawl spaces allow for humidity to enter the space and attach to everything organic. Your flooring system, fiberglass insulation, and stored items all fall victim to water vapor, creating an unhealthy and damp environment below the home.
Mold is a sign and symptom of active moisture. Long-term exposure to humidity and water vapor can result in mold growth along the floor system of your home. Would you want to spend a lot of time and money repairing your floor system, just to have this problem repeated? The solution is to control the moisture in the crawl space first, then replace the wood floor system in the crawl space.
