Challenges Facing Your Healthy Home
Your home should be a safe and comfortable place; not one that makes you and your family sick or filled with problems that endangers the home’s stability. No matter if your home is new or old, flooded basements, basement with moisture, humidity, and foundation cracks are always a threat.
Maintaining your home and knowing the signs of something wrong is essential in keeping your home healthy and safe.
Maintaining The Basement Environment
Most homeowners seldom think of their basement as much more than extra storage, a workout area, laundry room, or playroom. The occasional ‘musty’ smell is often overlooked and therein lies the problem: The vast majority of cellars throughout the United States have water and moisture seeping in through concrete walls and rising up through the floor that is ignored.
When moisture seeps into the home, iron bacteria is carried in and the environment is perfect for mold and mildew. Basements with any degree of humidity or moisture are responsible for that unpleasant odor that sometimes proves to be a health hazard for anyone with allergies or a sensitive respiratory system.
Removing the water and moisture solves the problem, which is where the Grate Products system comes in. Through generations of improvements and evolution, the Grate Products system does what no other can: It is a total solution to removing any and all water and moisture from a part of the house that supplies 40% of the air to the first floor.
