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
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!
