What’s Under My House & Why Do I Need To Know?

When was the last time you went under your house to check the crawl space. The answer for most homeowners is usually rarely or never. But, if you have crawled under your house, it’s possible you could find humidity, pests, mold and sagging floor joists.

What is a crawlspace and what is its function?

A crawl space is an unfinished space between the ground and the house. It’s designed to provide a buffer between the house and its inhabitants and the damp, wet earth below the house. The crawl space functions also include providing access to repair plumbing, electrical wiring and ductwork for your HVAC.

Today though, we understand that the crawl space can actually collect water and serve as a repository for humid air. This humid environment introduces a number of hazards; including mold and mildew growth, musty odors and moist sills and framing that can lead to both structural damage and pest infestations. Sometimes, even the home itself can smell musty; that’s usually an indication of a crawl space problem.
