SUB-FLOOR VENTILATION SERVICES


Apart from providing pest control services we also specialise in sub-floor building ventilation. As this is a composite part of pest control we feel that in order to provide an overall quality service its something we must provide to our clientele. Not only does it prevent fungi from forming but good sub-floor ventilation will dramatically reduce termite infestations from forming due to the lack of moisture which their favor.

Benefits of good ventilation
What methods are available?

There are a number of ways which a subfloor can’t be ventilated. The main decision factor comes down to cost. A budget approach would be simply brick vents that would relace a full brick. The number of vents and location would be determined depending on the size of the subfloor area and access. Brick vents come in different styles, colours and sizes so it’s easy to blend into existing brick work.



A more sophisticated and effective way of ventilation the subfloor would be the use of electric fans. This system is designed to exhaust damp trapped air from the sub-floor and introduce fresh air in through existing or new passive vents. Fans are run off a 12 volt transformer and timer.
