Most Seattle homeowners don’t give much thought to the area below their home if they have a crawl space. After all, they don’t have anything stored here, so what does it matter if there is also water and mold found in this area? Actually, at Robbins and Co., we know that what happens in your crawl space can have a huge influence on the rest of your family’s home, including for your health and well-being.

“Regarding the encapsulation work your company did at my house, I am very pleased. Every person that I dealt with was very professional, courteous and kind. Thank you very much.” ~ J. Rasmussen Arlington, WA
An un-sealed crawl space lets in moisture whenever it rains, or when you have melting snow on your lawn. All of this moisture can damage your wooden supports and floor joists, leading to serious damage to the structural integrity of your entire home – including sagging floors. Also, all of this rotting wood can be very inviting to unwanted critters, including termites, roaches, mosquitoes, rats, snakes, spiders and more.
Additionally, moisture and high levels of humidity below your home can lead to mold growth.
Mold is a dangerous fungus that is usually dark green or black in color.
It can lead to a variety of health problems, including: asthma attacks, headaches, skin rashes, cold or flu-like symptoms, fatigue, bronchitis and more.
