What Makes a Healthy

Basement or Crawlspace?

Moisture, dampness, and leaks in a basement or crawlspace can create an unhealthy environment and through a natural occurrence of air constantly rising from the basement or crawlspace into the upper levels of the home. This bad air coming from the basement or crawlspace can introduce a wide range of toxins and soil gases into the home’s living space. Studies have shown that people who occupy damp buildings are at an increased risk of health problems. Many people take care of the basement or crawlspace not to just get rid of the nuisance, but rather to make their home healthy for themselves and their family.

The world health organization published guidelines reporting that occupants of damp or moldy buildings have up to a 75% greater risk of respiratory symptoms. Studies have also established an association between indoor dampness with respiratory infections and disturbing the immune system.

Reduce Mold Potential

Dampness is a problem in buildings because it provides the moisture that supports the growth of bacteria, fungi (i.e., mold), and insects. The Institute of Medicine found sufficient evidence to link exposure to damp indoor environments in general to upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in otherwise healthy people and with asthma symptoms in people with asthma.

Prevent Radon Gas

Americans spend approximately 90 percent of their times indoors. Studies of human exposure to air pollutants by EPA indicate that indoor levels of pollutants may be 2 to 5 times- and occasionally more than 100 times higher than outdoor pollutant levels. Indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health.
