If you are reading this, and I mean actually reading this, congratulations! You are amongst the 1% who actually want to know the science behind the crawl space encapsulation process and other various repair services. It is for those of you who truly want to understand why they should have their crawl space repaired.
If you’ve read a few of our other pages on the site, you will find that we try and do our best to explain the HSV Crawlspace services by comparing them with other things.
Replacing Your Insulation
Insulation removal is yet another of our offered services. Again, as was the same for the drainage system service, skipping this service to try and save a few buck will be one of the biggest mistakes you make. Unfortunately you will not notice the effects of this mistake for a long time, and then like most other things, everything will go south at once.
Here’s a simple question for you. “Would you rather sleep in a comfortable, dark, and cool room in a bed, or on the floor?” Sounds like a dumb question right? That’s about how we feel when people ask us why they would need some of their insulation either removed from the home or replaced.
Where do you think insects such as beetles, cockroaches, and termites would rather live? In the soft, warm comfort of the insulation or on the clean, cool vapor barrier? Insects and rodents love to get down in the crawl space under the house and nestle into the insulation. By chewing a hole through the outside of the insulation, the rodent or insect can then enter in and make itself at home.
At first this may not seem like a big deal, but for these insects and rodents there are no designated bathroom areas where they live. Meaning that the urine and feces produced by these creatures is going to soak into the insulation. Now picture the air from outside the home, seeping in through the cracks and even the vents, then passing through the insect infested insulation, and finally up into the ground level floor where you and your loved one’s breathe it in.
Pretty graphic huh? We are not here to scare you into using this service. We are instead letting you know the facts. We can assure you that each of our homes have benefited greatly from the insulation removal service. If you don’t think it’s necessary, that’s fine, we don’t have to perform the service. Just know in advance that if it is a breathing or health improvement you are after, the replacing of the insulation can be a huge benefit and help to the cause.
Imagine crashing on a bicycle and looking down and seeing all the rocks, dirt, and maybe even asphalt, lodged into your skin. Would you put a bandage on it without first cleaning it? Maybe for a few minutes while you rush to the hospital, but surely you would expect the hospital to clean and even sterilize the wound before trying to bandage it up.
Let HSV Crawlspace clean the wound (insulation) out and get your crawl space on the road to recovery.
