Michael Church

In 2005, my wife and I were expecting our first baby. I was in my mid thirties and scared out of my mind. Needless to say times were extremely tough financially and having the added stress of a newborn was really weighing on me. It was through pure desperation and a lot of prayer that I began the journey which eventually led me to becoming the Crawl Space Ninja.

Straight Outta High School

I had started several businesses which included everything from tanning salons, to computers, to rehabbing and flipping houses. I joined the Navy straight out of high school because I couldn't afford college and the likelihood of scholarships or grants was not in my future. My parents were hard workers and seeing their example taught me to work hard as well. While in the Navy I knew I wanted to someday own my own business but never had any formal business training. I earned my associates degree while serving and graduated on-board the USS John F Kennedy in 1995. I was honorably discharged shortly after that returned to East Tennessee.

My House Stinks

After several failed business attempts and my wife being 8-months pregnant, I decided to launch into another business. At this time our tanning salons were hemorrhaging money which got us several months behind on our house payment. I didn't know what to do so I decided to get a job.

On my way to an interview our car broke down and I was stuck on the side of the road waiting for a tow. An old acquaintance saw me stranded and decided to stop and see if I needed any help. While we were talking he told me about a product he found that eliminated pet odors in homes. He was a realtor and that was a very handy thing to have when trying to sell a house. Since I had missed my interview I went home and decided to buy one of the air purifiers that eliminate pet odors, after all I had dogs.

The only problem was my dogs didn't stink, or at least I didn't think they did. My machine arrived and WOW! My dogs smelled horrible. After the dog odor was eliminated I decided to turn the air purifier off just to see what would happen. Well, as you can imagine the odor returned and that was the first time I noticed how much my precious puppies stunk.

Crawl Space Ninja Purchases AirSafe 2000 Furnace Filters

Since I had a way to eliminate odors I decide to speak to as many realtors and homeowners as possible. The odor elimination lead us to getting mold inspector and removal certified. That lead to waterproofing, then insulation and foundation work. We then purchased a company's manufacturing equipment and began manufacturing the World's Best Furnace Filters. Home Filtration located in Powell, TN created a furnace filter that is second to none in capturing dust and allergens. In 2014, we purchased that business and now manufacture the AirSafe 2000 Furnace Air Filter.
