When it comes to the health and well-being of your home, having the right insulation is incredibly important. Your home’s insulation should be clean and free of contaminants, and should meet or exceed all applicable environmental standards. Modern insulation promotes and improves the quality of the air you breathe.
At Clean Crawls, our aim is to provide unparalleled expertise in the removal and replacement of inadequate insulation. Maybe your old insulation has gone bad: we can replace it with a clean, quality product that complies with all environmental requirements.
There are three all-important benefits our customers experience once we inspect their worn out or inadequate insulation. After we replace it with our higher R-value insulation, homeowners can expect:
You may notice that there are areas in your home that seem to suffer from air temperature fluctuations. You may feel some walls and floors are colder than others, or the heat upstairs seems extreme. These are sure signs that some rooms are providing more insulation than others.
Insulation helps to obstruct any heat from penetrating through walls, ceilings, and floors of your attics or crawl spaces. When air temperatures vary significantly, that is an indicator of an imbalance of the performance of insulation from room to room. This can place heavier and costlier demands on heating and cooling systems. Installing newer insulation into these problem areas can solve that problem.
When moisture accumulates in your home’s structure due to breaches in the attic or crawl space, the chances of mildew and mold increase dramatically. The warmth and darkness in these spaces provide an environment where mildew and mold can thrive. Colonies of mold and mildew may have an extremely detrimental effect on the quality of air you breathe, and may affect your health as a result. Fortunately, there are specific insulation products that can seal out moisture in these vital areas.
Everyone likes to save money on costly power bills. One of the surest ways to realize such savings is through investing in good insulation for your attic and crawl space. There are homes where the average savings in energy cost is anywhere between 30 to 80 percent. The cost of the new insulation easily pays for itself over a few month’s time in these homes.
Today, spray foam insulation dominates the insulation market. Spray foam insulation is formed by the two composite materials that comprise spray foam insulation reacting to creates a thick and expansive foam.
The expansive nature of spray foam insulation, and its superior qualities as a sealant, renders heat and moisture problems inoperable. Spray foam also possesses the highest R-value possible, making this the best insulation choice.
Spray foam insulation, unlike its cellulose or fiberglass competitors, has an impenetrable resistance to water. The compositional makeup eliminates the possibility of mildew or mold to gain a foothold in your home’s structure. Spray foam insulation completely seals and safeguards your crawl space and attic.
Another stalwart quality of spray foam insulation is the ability of its rigid exterior. The rigidity discourages rodents from attempting to nest in the insulation. This dramatically reduces the likelihood of any potential infestation.
