Crawl Space Cleaning is an Essential Home Care Activity
Crawl space cleaning is one of those essential activities that homeowners don’t think about until something goes wrong.
In contrast to other visible spaces of your home, a crawl space is usually obscured from your view. Nonetheless, a crawl space requires the same attention and care you give to the rest of your home.
Homeowners are unaware of the problems that can occur in hard-to-reach crawl spaces that can lead to severe damage and hazardous health conditions if left untreated.
An example of the crawl space danger is when raccoons, mice, rats and bats have nested in your crawl space. This leads to contamination of your home insulation with feces, and urine. Without attention these contaminants and fumes could spread all over your home and you and your loved ones could be in danger.

The terms that are dreaded most by the Northwest homeowners are “mold and mildew,” particularly when linked to their home’s environment.

Research illustrates that mold occurrence is found to be 20 percent in certain U.S. areas, while the figures climb up to almost 60 percent in other areas.
