Is your Bothell home’s crawl space the dark, damp, and creepy type, full of insects and other unwanted critters? Or is it a bit roomier so you use it to store a few items, but don’t venture much further than the entryway?
No matter how you’re making use of your crawl space, it’s important to maintain it. A crawl space cleanout from Crawl Pros ensures you catch issues in your crawl space early — before they impact the health of your loved ones or the structural integrity of your home.
Why Do We Use Crawl Spaces?
Homebuilders have been using crawl spaces for decades as the mechanism for connecting your home’s foundation to the structure. The purpose of a crawl space is to remove the moisture produced by the underlying dirt.
Unfortunately, when there are crawl spaces in a damp environment (like in Bothell and the rest of Greater Seattle), it can create issues. Not to mention the fact that “creatures” can enter the space and make trouble for your home and its occupants.
What Can Go Wrong in Your Crawl Space?
Many homeowners make the mistake of not taking a peek under their homes, and things can take a downward turn quickly in this space. If you have standing water or moisture buildup in your crawl space, mold and mildew are almost sure to follow.
Mold can lead to wood rot, compromising the structure of your home. Even worse, a good part of the air in your home comes from your crawl space. So, mold can lead to health issues for you and your loved ones.
Crawl spaces are attractive environments for all types of critters. Insects can eat away at your structure and cause considerable damage. Both insects and rodents can make nests in your insulation and wiring, again damaging your structure, making it less efficient, and even creating a potential health hazard.
