If you are worried about moisture in the subfloor cavities causing health issues for your family, then you need to invest in subfloor ventilation as soon as possible, as difficulties can arise very quickly, and they could be identified too late to deal with them very effectively. This kind of dampness in these spaces is a breeding ground for termites, mould, mildew and a number of other problems, and is indicated by a foul or damp odour in the house.
Termites can cause serious issues with the structural integrity of your home, which can cost you enormous amounts of money to fix, and will cause a lot of heart break and upset for you and your family at the destruction of your home; moulds and mildew can let off spores, which can aggravate conditions such as asthma and allergies, and sometimes more serious conditions depending on the type of mould. If nothing else, the foul smell is quite overpowering, and can be very unpleasant for the residents, and any guests, alike – it will give your whole house a dank, unpleasant atmosphere, which you will want to avoid.
The only way to dry up the damp is with effective subfloor ventilation, using a service such as that provided by Nationwide Subfloor Ventilation.

They will start with a subfloor check, to find out the extent of the moisture in these spaces, and identify any damage that has already become a problem. So if you think that there is an unusual bad smell in your home and if you think there is a more serious problem at its root – contact a specialist today. You could save a lot of tears and stress in the meantime.
