What is air purification?
Air purification is the process which removes contaminants from the air in a room to improve indoor air quality.
These contaminants can include dust, pollen, pet dander and mould spores. Improving the ventilation in your home can improve the air quality in your home and improve the health of you and your family.
Why might I need sub floor ventilation in my home?
A poorly ventilated sub floor can contribute to or directly cause an array of problems in your home. These range from a feeling of dampness, a stale or musty environment, right throughs to issues with mould, mildew, warping floorboards or even termite infestations.
A damp sub floor is a perfect breeding ground for mould spores. The spores will naturally penetrate into your home and are attracted to cool, dark areas where they land and grow. This is why you will find mould growing in cupboards and/or behind furniture.
These areas also provide ideal conditions for termites which survive best in damp, moist areas. Ensuring your property is kept dry is a key preventative measure against termites.
How does it work?
Sub floor ventilation is about creating airflow, either passively or through the use of a mechanical ventilation system.
To increase passive airflow, after a thorough assessment, we may increase the size of your existing vents, or add more vents in the walls leading to the sub floor area.
An alternative is to install a mechanical ventilation system to create the airflow to exhaust damp air that is causing the problem. We use a ducted in-line system to do this. As air will always balance itself, by drawing out the musty air, the fresh air is drawn into the sub floor to make this area a drier, healthier space.
Consistent air movement in the sub floor will minimise the ability for mould spores to generate and move into your living areas. Any spores that might generate are expelled out from the sub floor area through use of the fan.
How much will it cost?
