With economic growth and vibrant commercial areas (old town centre and the area around the Macarthur railway station), it’s a good thing there are still several heritage-listed sites here (such as the St John’s Catholic Church, Glenalvon House, Warbys Barn and Stables, Campbelltown Post Office, Commercial Banking Company of Sydney, Queen Street Buildings, Dredges Cottage).
Campbelltown is also known for its strong sporting culture (the suburb has produced professional athletes who have represented Australia at the Olympics). The Campbelltown Stadium is the place that unites people as we support our athletes in winning the game.
Campbelltown sub floor ventilation
Similarly, the subfloor provides structural support to what’s above. However, this can also be a weak place due to moisture and deterioration. The lack of a good sub floor ventilation system may result to timber decay, warped timber floors and the following:
- Cracked walls (uneven moisture levels can cause the soil below your building to expand and contract)
- Termite infestation (termites thrive in moist conditions)
- Condensation (can be seen below concrete areas of buildings under the slab)
- Rising damp (one sign is bubbling and peeling of the painted render or brickwork close to ground level)
- Musty smells and mould growth (which can affect our respiratory health)
These are insidious problems that are not just costly, but potentially harmful to the occupants. For instance, cracked walls and warped timber floors raise safety concerns. In addition, mould growth can affect our health (especially those with compromised immune or respiratory system). It’s crucial to implement better moisture control in the sub floor to better protect your asset and the health of the occupants.
Here at Extract Air, we specialise in installing ventilation solutions that promote better moisture control (and thereby protect your structure from damage and discourage mould growth). This is a little investment to maximise the lifetime of your residential or commercial structure or reduce repairs in the long run. Aside from better structural integrity, you also help promote better health because mould growth will be minimised.
We install a range of mechanical exhaust fans, mechanical ventilation intake fans, high flow cement mesh vents, louvered grill vents and heritage vents. These promote better air circulation while having low energy requirements and running at low noise and vibration. The fans and systems we install are also designed and built to endure the harsh Australian climate. Phone us today at 0405 343 999 if you require an excellent subfloor ventilation system for your residential or commercial building. For more than 15 years this has been our specialisation so rest assured we’ll deliver an excellent and cost-effective solution.
