Air is something that none of us can live without. But have you ever given much thought to the quality of the air you breathe while inside your home? Studies report that the indoor air quality of most homes is quite harmful, and many people don’t even realize the toxins they breathe every day. Poor air quality can exacerbate allergies, asthma, or other lung diseases. Therefore, it is essential for your health to improve your home’s indoor air quality. Today on the blog, our crawlspace specialists in Nashville at Ameri Care share four ways to do just that!

Have a crawlspace inspection

Crawlspaces are notorious for collecting moisture and mildew. Humidity is a natural part of our weather here in Middle Tennessee, but it creates a nightmare for homeowners. Moisture enters crawlspaces from various sources. It could be due to the weather, your property grade, improperly installed or clogged gutters, or leaky pipes. The best way to determine the source of moisture in your crawlspace is to schedule an inspection. Ameri Care Services offers complimentary crawlspace inspections in Nashville.

Address plumbing leaks

If you have leaky plumbing or faucets in your home, get them fixed right away. Not only do leaky faucets result in expensive water and sewer bills, but the water has to go somewhere, and that place might be inside your home, under flooring, or in your basement or crawlspace where mold can thrive.

Get a professionally installed dehumidifier

Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air. When the air is humid and moisture collects, mold growth is more likely. The best way to combat moisture in the air inside your home is to have a professional install a dehumidifier in your crawlspace or basement.

Ameri Care installs the EZ Breathe System, which provides homeowners with the following benefits

  • Removes gallons of water vapor from the air inside your crawlspace
  • Reduces mold and mildew
  • Removes musty odors
  • Improves the air quality inside your home
  • Protects the foundation of your home from moisture destruction
  • Improves energy efficiency, saving you money on your monthly energy bills
  • Reduces allergy and asthma triggers
  • Conditions the crawlspace, which is necessary for good air quality
  • Removes airborne particles, soil gases like radon, that enter crawlspaces

Properly drain your home’s dehumidifier

Since dehumidifiers collect water vapor from the air, the unit has to dispose of the water somehow. Traditional units have a large receptacle that has to be dumped, or the unit will stop functioning. To save homeowners the hassle, the EZ Breathe Ventilation System can be routed to dispose of water into a drain or outside. This means that your dehumidifier continues working even when you’re not!
