Unless you’re super festive and also love a high electric bill, there’s a good chance you took down your Christmas decorations last weekend. And then began the yearly “Where should I put these” debate. When your home has a crawl space, storage upstairs is at a premium and there’s just never enough room for the things you use regularly, let alone seasonal decorations.
Now, think of it differently. When your home has a crawl space, you have access to hundreds of square feet of clean, dry storage - if the crawl space is encapsulated.
The number one reason people don’t utilize their crawl space is that it’s, well, gross. It’s usually only three or four feet tall, not big enough to use as any real living space, and many crawl spaces are dark, damp, and dirty - not exactly useful. But when you leave your crawl space that way, in addition to making your home vulnerable to the effects of dirty air that comes up, you’re literally wasting space.
CleanSpace is a strong, bright white, antimicrobial vapor barrier that not only protects your crawl space and home from the elements, it creates usable space. It’s durable enough to walk (or more likely crawl) on and stands up to any and all kinds of boxes you need to store down there.
There are plenty of reasons to encapsulate your crawl space - it reduces energy bills, makes your home safer, and improves your home and family’s health - but even simpler, it just gives you more. More storage, more space, more sanity. Even if you don’t notice a weird smell coming from down there, or have never so much as sneezed, you’ve definitely gotten hit on the head by a wayward Christmas wreath while trying to extricate the pool noodles from what you once hoped to use as a coat closet.
Make 2020 the year you give more to your family and yourself. Start with your crawl space. Call today for a free inspection and find out what CleanSpace can do for you.
