If your Arlington home has a crawl space, it’s a good idea to take a look down there to ensure you don’t have any problems. If you’ve noticed musty or moldy odors in your home, have some unexplained health troubles, or are experiencing soft or warped flooring, you might need crawl space cleanout services sooner than you think.
Why Clean Out Your Crawl Space?
Many homeowners don’t inspect their crawl spaces for obvious reasons. It’s dirty and dark down there, and there’s the possibility of critters. But, ignoring your home’s crawl space could lead to expensive fixes in the future.
The area between the ground and your home’s main floor isn’t just an empty space. It generally holds some vital systems, such as plumbing, ductwork, and wiring for your home. Many homes also have insulation in their crawl spaces.
If your crawl space is vented, nearly 40% of the air in your home comes from that space. Anything in that air, such as mold spores, could make you and your loved ones sick. And critters can take up residence in your crawl space, making nests, leaving their waste, and destroying things like insulation and wires.
