Crawlspaces are often the least-noticed parts of a house, but they are very important to the structural health of your home. So, what is crawlspace remediation, and why can ignoring the need for it cause damage to the structure of your home?
Crawlspace remediation is the process of cleaning, insulating, and controlling dampness in the area under your home, called the crawlspace. Below, you’ll find three major reasons why ignoring the need for crawlspace remediation can become a major problem for your home.
- The buildup of Water. Moisture buildup is one of the biggest problems with neglected crawlspaces. Too much wetness can cause wood to rot and the foundation to weaken, risking your home’s stability. As part of our crawlspace remediation services, we control moisture, helping your crawlspace stay dry and free of structural damage.
- Infestations by Pests. Pests like termites, mice, and ants love a basement that hasn’t been taken care of. These pests can do a lot of damage to the wood parts of your crawlspace. We offer complete pest control services that eliminate these damaging critters and protect the structure of your home.
- Growth of Mold and Mildew. Mold and mildew can grow in your crawlspace if it’s damp and doesn’t have enough airflow. These fungi can then spread to other parts of your home. Our crawlspace remediation services include cleaning up mold and mildew.
