Keeping Your Business Immaculate

When we installed a suggestion box in the entryway of our business, I was amazed to see how many customers responded. After we started going through the suggestions, we realized that there was one request that we kept seeing--the need for a cleaner store. We decided to make a few changes to keep our place cleaner, including hiring a professional cleaning service. The results were incredible. Customers started to comment on how clean our place was, instead of the need for dramatic changes. We also noticed a boost in our sales because customers felt more comfortable in our store.

How Crawlspace Encapsulation Saves You Time

by Lee Porter

Have you thought about having your crawlspace encapsulated? Maybe you considered it, but then never followed through because you felt you didn't have the time to shop around for a contractor and schedule the service. Crawlspace encapsulation does take a little time, but it will save you time in the long run. Here's how.

You'll spend less time cleaning

When your crawlspace is not encapsulated, there's a lot of humidity and moisture that end up coming into your home. And where there's humidity, there is almost always mold spores and dust. Your home will become dusty faster, which means you'll spend more time vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning. Even rooms like your bathroom may grow more mold to clean up since the overall level of moisture in your home is higher. Once you encapsulate the crawlspace, your home humidity will go down, and this will mean you do not have to do as much cleaning as time goes on. You might be able to cut back to vacuuming once every two weeks and dusting once a month.

You'll spend less time trapping and baiting insects

If your crawlspace is not encapsulated, there is a good chance you find plenty of insects in your home. You may find ants in various places. Cockroaches might also be a problem. The time spent trapping and baiting these insects can really add up, especially when you include the time spent running to the store to buy baits and traps. When you encapsulate your crawlspace, the place becomes much dryer. Insects will no longer want to breed and spend time in a dry crawlspace, so you'll have far fewer of them in your home, and you can spend far less time worrying about them.

You'll spend less time struggling with wooden doors and windows

Another consequence that comes with the varying humidity from a non-encapsulated crawlspace is the expansion and contraction of any wooden items in your home. When it is humid, you may have to wrestle all your doors shut because they swell. After you encapsulate your crawlspace, your wooden items should stop swelling and shrinking, which will mean they last longer, don't take so much effort to close, and require less maintenance.

Encapsulating your crawlspace is a task that takes a little time, but it is time well-spent. Have crawlspace encapsulation service performed, and you will save time on cleaning, extermination, and wood maintenance.
