Why Does A Cleaning Matter?
Your crawl space is home to many important facets of your home, from pipes and cables that supply water and electricity, to insulation that helps keep the temperature stable. Unfortunately, if your crawl space isn't cleaned out regularly, all of these factors and more are at risk. Dust and dirt build-up can cause mold and mildew to grow and spread, which will damage everything from insulation to wood.
Animals using insulation as a nest can destroy it as well, along with the vapor barrier to keep moisture out, and their waste spreads disease. The contaminated air they create can easily enter your home, especially in the summer months when warm air will rise upward into your house, so it's safest to make sure all of these problems are taken care of!
What Are Signs It Needs Cleaning?
If you're unsure about whether it's time to get your crawl space tended to, there are some signals to look out for! Your energy bill might be slowly rising due to damaged insulation allowing air to escape rather than circulate in your home, or you may be able to check yourself and see that the insulation is showing signs of molding or crumbling that indicates it's no longer working.
Are you aware of animals that have gotten into your crawl space? You may be able to see droppings, in which case it's certainly time to have it cleared out by a professional. A foul odor might also give away that mold or mildew is eating at the space beneath your home.
