Your basement can be a paradise if treated correctly.  Often this area is used for storage, play areas, entertaining, or even living.  However, you need to make sure that the area is safe.  Basements are often damp and because of this dampness, as well as radon and other toxins, can result in poor air quality.  Moisture and mold go hand in hand.  Proper basement air treatment and ventilation or vital for a healthy home.

Crawl spaces are generally damp, humid environments that if not treated correctly can cause mold and bacteria growth.  This nasty crawl space air will then travel up and into your home causing odors and an unhealthy environment.  Treating your crawl space as a part of your home and not ignoring it is vitally important to your health and the health of your home.  Once crawl spaces are properly sealed, dehumidifying the air will give you back the control of your crawl space environment.
