maintenance service agreement being signed

What’s better than home repair? Home maintenance! The idea of paying for services when there isn’t an obvious problem might strike Maryland homeowners in Easton, Cambridge, and Salisbury as going against common sense. But we have first hand experience here at Total Home Performance that you can save money by scheduling preventative maintenance as opposed to waiting until something breaks to pay for repair calls.

If you’re looking to reap the benefits of a properly encapsulated crawl space all year round, enroll in Total Home Performance’s crawl space maintenance plan.

The Benefits of Crawl Space Maintenance

Crawl space encapsulation solves a number of common issues that Eastern Shore residents deal with, including:

  • High humidity levels and bad indoor odors

  • Expensive energy bills

  • Moisture and mold in your home

  • Poor indoor air quality symptoms like headaches, coughing or sneezing, and allergy-like symptoms

Crawl space encapsulation involves properly insulating and air sealing, applying vapor and moisture barriers, and dehumidifying the area of your home under your feet, which can decrease mold, pest, and IAQ issues and lower your heating and cooling costs by reducing energy waste.

But your home is in a constant state of change, and your crawl space is a particularly vulnerable area because typically it is out of sight and of mind. That's where we can help! With crawl space maintenance plan membership, you can feel confident that your crawl space stays just as protected as the day you originally scheduled encapsulation services, maintaining indoor air quality and efficient HVAC operation.

What You Get with Your Crawl Space Maintenance Plan

Members of Total Home Performance’s crawl space maintenance plan will receive twice annual inspections. Our team of home performance professionals will check:

  • Your crawl space’s perimeter for proper encapsulation sealing

  • Your ground barrier for proper sealing

  • The condition of your duct and ductwork insulation

  • For any obvious moisture intrusion

  • For any signs of mold

  • Humidity levels

  • Your crawl space dehumidifier’s coil

  • The condition of your air filters

  • The condensate line from your dehumidifier

  • The operation of your condensate pump

  • The operation of any sump pumps

  • The sump pump bucket, removing any debris

  • Dryer vent, removing any lint build-up

  • The condition of joists

  • The condition of crawl space insulation

  • For signs of pest or rodent infestation

Along the way, our team will make adjustments and clean as necessary, ensuring that you’ll continue to benefit from a conditioned and sealed crawl space, at the very least until our next visit!
