Indoor Air Quality

“Out of Sight / Out of Mind” Can Be A Big Problem

In the past, little thought was given to Air Quality inside the home. Most people just thought that if they kept there home clean and the air filters changed, they had good, clean air to breath as well as a healthy living environment. Not no more, now days it is more about where the air is coming from (the crawl space) and how to make it better (installing the STS Pro-Shield Plus Liner System) before it gets inside the home.

According to U.S.E.P.A., the “Typical Home“ in the United States has between 0.5 and 1.5 air changes per hour.

What this means to you: If your home is somewhere in the middle of the EPA findings for example, say 1 air change per hour (not an overly air tight home, but not drafty either), this means that every hour all the air in your home is replaced with new air.

But from where you may ask, does this new air come from? Good question! Amazingly, over 50% of this new, replacement air comes from the crawl space.

How is this possible you ask? Well, as warm air rises, cool air from the crawl space is pulled up into the living areas throughout your home until finding its way out the roof vents, this process is never ending. This process is referred to as the ”stack effect”, it’s the same way a chimney works.

This, combined with other factors, means that a significant amount of the air you breathe actually comes from your potentially wet, damp and moldy crawl space. The “STS Pro Shield Plus” Liner System will greatly improve the indoor air quality throughout your home by sealing out moisture and mold as well as preventing new mold growth. STS provides a cost effective, permanent solution to allergens, irritants, mold and odors by eliminating the source of the problem with the installation of our liner system. Creating a clean, dry, sanitary storage area while protecting and improving the health of your family is what Seal Tight Solutions is all about.

Do not let "Out of Sight / Out of Mind" be a Problem for you, install the STS Pro-Shield Plus Liner System!
