Crawl spaces are often overlooked, but they’re an essential part of your home. After all, if we can’t see the crawl space, we don’t see its problems. The benefits of a clean, well-maintained crawl space go beyond what many people realize. Your house’s dark, damp crawl space is the perfect spot for pests to call home. These areas are prime real estate for critters who thrive on moisture, from rats and mice to termites. Excess humidity in your crawl space can lead to even more unfortunate events without immediate action. High levels cause mold and fungi growth, impacting the quality of your home’s air. This host of problems can only accumulate if you don’t keep a clean crawl space.
