Crawl Space Cleanup
Crawl spaces are an often neglected part of home maintenance. They are cramped, dark, musty, and dirty and, therefore, generally avoided, but crawl spaces are prone to experiencing severe problems that can affect your property if not dealt with swiftly. Mold, water, termites, and rotting wood are all problems commonly found in crawl spaces. In many instances, regular maintenance along with preventative measures can prevent most problems or at least limit the damage.
There are many vital components of your home located under it, such as pipes and insulation, any of which can be heavily damaged if your crawl space isn’t regularly cleaned; more important, there are health hazards linked to it as well. Therefore, it’s best to be safe and get it taken care of immediately!
Animals love to use the space as a nesting area and will destroy your insulation to use for that purpose. Most concerningly, however, is that the buildup of waste from the pests will create a cesspool of disease, which can make its way into your home. Alternatively, if water has gotten into space due to burrowing animals, not only will it harm insulation and wood, but mold will grow and spread to eat away at these materials and also pose a health risk.
What Should You Look For?
You may be able to quickly check for signs that your crawl space needs cleaning just by opening it up and looking in with a flashlight. If you notice mold, animal droppings, or water discoloration, it’s time for a cleaning. Smell may also let you know that it’s needed, as foul odors emanate from both animal waste and mold.
