All this is great, as it makes it more likely than not, that if your [...]
Unfortunately, a home’s basement and crawl space (that area beneath the first floor – yes – the one you never go into….) are typically exposed to moisture and unhealthy mold, mildew, and fungus, and even infestations by bugs, termites, mice, and rats. All this can take a bite out of the value of your home and expose your family to health hazards! What is a [...]
