Why Take Care of Your Crawlspace?

The crawlspace is the part of the home that many homeowners take for granted, yet requires maintenance and attention. Although you may want to avoid this damp, dark and confined area of your home, we’re here to tell you why it is necessary to perform regular checks and cleanings.

Reason #1:

Without checking or cleaning your crawlspace, moisture and mold can eventually build up and impact the air quality of your home.

Reason #2:

Crawlspaces contain important structural and electrical components and make them easily accessible in case something needs to be repaired or replaced. These components include; plumbing, electrical lines, gas hookups and ventilation, to name a few. A flooded, dirty or damaged crawlspace can potentially lead to problems in other areas of your home.

Reason #3:

Due to the dark, damp nature of the crawlspace, as well as its outdoor location, it is an appealing place for small animals and other pests to call home. The last thing any homeowner wants is a rodent problem or even worse, exposure to a pathogen carried by rodents.

Reason #4:

Insulation located in crawlspaces can undergo a natural wear and tear causing wasted energy. If you’re wondering why your electricity or gas bill has doubled, there’s a chance that it has to do with the insulation in your crawlspace.

Reason #5:

Crawlspaces can easily develop standing water or obtain sewage from old, leaky pipes. This can cause structural damage or even collapse if gone unnoticed. If raw sewage is involved, it can even house harmful viruses and pathogens. If you notice this issue when performing your crawlspace check, please call a licensed professional immediately!

When performing a crawlspace check, here’s what to look for:

  • Pesky pests

  • Standing water, leaky/faulty piping, sewage buildup

  • Air leaks

  • Insulation that may need replacing

  • Properly installed vapor barriers
