Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for a crawl space to fall victim to unsightly and harmful damages. When crawl spaces were first introduced, they served as a buffer between the bottom of the house and the ground. Since these crawl spaces are still outside, they are incredibly susceptible to mold and mildew, rodents, bug and pest infestations, and pooling caused by unexpected water damage. When these issues form, they put your home at risk of structural issues such as collapsing floorboards and foundation cracking and/or settling. Furthermore, the buildup of mold and mildew can trigger allergies, worsen respiratory ailments, and circulate foul odors around your home.
