What is a Crawlspace?

Out of all of the areas in your home, the one that most home owners seldom see and might not even know exists, is the crawlspace. Although this area is hardly looked at, it certainly should not be ignored. Many crucial elements that can affect the health and safety of your home are housed in the crawlspace, including: your home’s foundation, plumbing, moisture barrier, subfloor insulation, and air ducts. Not only are these elements key in the functionality of your home, but the condition of the elements themselves can greatly affect the overall health or your home and those that occupy it.

Common Problems in a Crawlspace

Since crawlspaces are so rarely frequented, it can allow animals (particularly rodents) to infest and breed uncontrollably without the home owner even knowing. Rodents and other wildlife, which take up residence under your home, can cause thousands of dollars in damage and contamination. Beyond causing damage to your home and wallet, the center for disease control reports that as many as 35 different diseases are transmitted directly and indirectly from rodents. Independent studies suggest that 40% of the air you breathe comes from the air underneath your home—this is even higher in the winter when less air is able to come in through windows and doors and homeowners rely more heavily on heating their home from within. Breathing in filthy contaminated air from your crawlspace day after day can create serious health risks. For these reasons and more, it is critically important to have a trained professional check your crawlspace at least once a year to insure your home is healthy and your family is safe.
