Sub Floor Ventilation Newcastle


Sub floor ventilation problems are often a result of inadequate air flow in enclosed spaces in the sub floor of a building.  If you own an older home and have noticed a musty smell inside your home, or if you have issues with mould, it’s always a good idea to get some professional advice.

Perimeter Pest Control can assist you with sub floor ventilation solutions for your home.  We also specialise in termite inspections and termite barrier treatment systems in Newcastle, Maitland & the Port Stephens region. As part of our termite inspection process, when we inspect sub floor areas of homes, we often see problem areas with mould growth. These types of issues can be improved with the installation of an efficient sub floor ventilation system. As you can see in the image below, the installation process will generally require additional vents to be installed on the external walls of the property to achieve improved air flow conditions. 

A quality sub floor ventilation system can improve the air quality in your home and help prevent any new mould growth. Mould can cause a range of health issues such as allergy symptoms, headaches and respiratory issues.

Other factors that can contribute to damp conditions in sub floor areas, are a lack of natural sunlight around the home due to close proximity of neighbouring buildings, trees that overhang or shade the property.  Another thing to consider, is whether you have sufficient drainage installed around the perimeter of the building to direct water away from the house.

Perimeter Pest Control recommend and install Envirofan sub floor ventilation products.
