Clean Your Crawl Space To Avoid These Dangers

The start of spring means a good dose of spring cleaning. You’ve covered the living room, the bathroom is spotless, the kitchen has never looked better, but I bet you forgot one of the most overlooked areas in the crawlspace.

Cleaning up your crawl space doesn’t have to be a hard task, and will help you avoid these three dangers:


Due to damp conditions, mold can grow rapidly in a crawl space. Even worse, airborne mold spores can enter the home through the crawl space, which poses a serious health concern. Crawl space encapsulation provides you with protection from mold, fungal growth, and protection from termites.


Dirty crawl spaces are perfect homes for rodents like mice and rats. Proper cleaning every so often will keep rodents at bay and prevent them from making a permanent home in your crawl space.


Termites are one of the most dreaded pests to have invade a home. They can cause massive structural damage, and getting rid of a full-blown termite infestation can be a headache. Having a professional conduct a full point inspection of your crawl space will ensure you don’t face hundreds of dollars in repair bills due to termites.
