Subfloor Inspections

Most people are aware of the necessity for good air circulation throughout the house, but few people are aware that ensuring adequate under house air circulation is just as important.

Have you ever been in a room or house where the air just doesn’t feel right? It’s like the humidity has built up to such an extent that it’s hard to breathe. In many cases this is because the subfloor ventilation is inadequate. Under house ventilation can be improved by brass mesh air flow vents and subfloor fans. By providing adequate under house air circulation, you can solve many of the problems associated with humidity and poor air quality.

Bryce Pest Control is your local ventilation expert, we are more than happy to assist you in understanding why under house ventilation is critical and what sort of under house ventilation system would be best suited for your circumstances.

What is subfloor ventilation?

Mould, dampness, and termites – all problems that can be solved with subfloor ventilation. Subfloor ventilation is a process of sending air underneath the flooring to help reduce moisture problems in the home. It also allows for better airflow and prevents mould from growing. Additionally, subfloor ventilation can help to keep the flooring dry, preventing damage from termites. So, whether you’re looking to solve moisture problems, prevent mould, or keep flooring dry, subfloor ventilation is a great option.

Why is subfloor ventilation important?

Subfloor ventilation simply requires that there is adequate natural air flow beneath the house. This can be achieved using a variety of methods. Drier, cooler, and healthier homes can be maintained this way. For a variety of reasons, indoor air quality is critical. First and foremost, it prevents any moisture or dampness from remaining in the subfloor of your home. Any damp or wet regions inside the house might cause issues such as rotting or decaying structural timbers, which is critical.

Mould or mildew spores may develop in damp soils beneath the house. The climate of the house above will be affected if you have a damp problem below the floor. The most noticeably affected rooms will be bathrooms and kitchens, as well as rooms with a naturally higher moisture content.

Another reason why subfloor ventilation is important is because termites are naturally attracted to wet areas. In essence, under house ventilation becomes a termite deterrent. You’ll have a costly problem to deal with if termites create a home beneath your house.

Subfloor ventilation should also be considered when air-conditioning is installed. The air ducts and coils will need to be protected from moisture and condensation.

Types of under house ventilation

Choosing the right type of ventilation for your home can be a daunting task. But don’t worry, we’re here to help! There are three main types of under house ventilation – natural, mechanical and hybrid. Bryce Pest Control are experts in subfloor ventilation and can advise you of the best fit for your home.

Subfloor Brass Mesh Air Flow Vents

The most prevalent technique to ensure subfloor ventilation is to use brass mesh air vents strategically positioned around the subfloor border. This employs natural air flow. The vents are installed above ground level and free of any obstructions so that air can flow freely. Depending on the type of structure, it’s possible that the standard vents installed may be obstructed by e.g., renovations or decks attached to the side of the building, in this case different ventilation may be required.

Subfloor Fans

Brass mesh vents are a great way to get fresh air into your home, but they may not be sufficient all the time. In cases like this, it might be necessary to supplement with fans to ensure that the ventilation system is working properly. Choosing the right fan for the job is important; we make sure to consider specs (size and wattage), as well as where it should be installed. Installing a suitable subfloor fan in the wall is in many cases a suitable solution. At Bryce Pest control we offer a range of fans designed to provide mechanical assistance with extracting air.

Subfloor ventilation benefits

Here are a few key benefits to subfloor ventilation:

  • Improves air quality
  • Prevents moisture build-up
  • Reduces the risk of mould, mildew and pollution
  • Airflow for a drier and healthier home
  • Helps to reduce allergy and asthma symptoms
  • Subfloor ventilation helps to protect against termites
  • Subfloor ventilation helps to prevent floorboards from warping
  • Increases air conditioning efficiency
  • Reduces the number of insects and parasites entering the home

Ventilation = healthy air

Every household should be provided with fresh, healthy air, but many households may be exposed to an unsafe environment caused by subfloor moisture or dampness. Poor-quality air may enter the home from the subfloor, causing breathing difficulties, particularly those with asthma and allergies. In addition, subfloor ventilation can prevent floorboards from warping, increase air conditioning efficiency and reduce the number of insects and parasites entering your home.

In summary, subfloor ventilation is an essential part of any healthy home, and can help to prevent moisture build-up, mould, and pollution; improve air quality; reduce the risk of allergies and asthma symptoms; help protect against termites; increase air conditioning efficiency; and provide fresh, healthy air to every household.
