Not many people worry about the maintenance of their crawl spaces. At the same time, crawl spaces are a significant part of a building. If there is damage to your crawl space, it may affect pipes, wiring, and plumbing. The foundational walls and other parts of the building can also get affected. Unfortunately, many will not inspect their crawl spaces until there is significant damage.
Another issue with crawl spaces is that they are susceptible to flooding and other damage caused by excess water. If your crawl space is damaged, your plumbing system may fail. Your electricity supply may also be disrupted. That is why it is recommended to inspect your crawl space at least twice a year. It is best to hire a professional to inspect your crawlspace.
At A-Co Restoration, we provide crawl space inspection and cleaning services for homeowners in Caldwell, ID. Our professionals can look for any signs of issues in your crawl space and we can also provide restoration services to restore crawl spaces affected by water and mold.
So, What Exactly Should You Look for During Crawl Space Inspection?
Because crawl spaces are designed differently from other parts of the building, many people do not know how to inspect them. That is why we are here to help you. If you hire A-Co Restoration for the inspection of your crawl space, these are the things we will be particular about:
Leaking Pipes: Some of the pipes in your home are located in the crawl space, but you may not be able to detect if they are leaking. Our technicians have the equipment to test for leakages in these pipes. We can easily detect any faulty pipe or those that are at high risk of developing faults. This will help you replace them as soon as possible.
Structural Damage: Regular inspection of your crawl space will let you detect structural damage as soon as possible. The earlier you detect this, the safer it is for every occupant. Our technicians will detect any part that may have experienced structural damage and restore it.
Excess Moisture: Another common problem associated with crawl spaces is improper water drainage. It is possible for your crawl space not to drain water adequately. In this case, there will be excess moisture on the structure. This may affect the foundation. However, we will help you identify all cases of excess water in your crawl space and ways of preventing it. We will also dry the building and restore all damage.
Mold Growth: If there has been excess moisture in your crawl space, there is a chance that mold growth will appear. We will search the crawl space for mold growth, mildew, and other pests. If they are allowed to thrive, they will spread quickly and may put your health at risk. If there is any evidence of mold growth in your crawl space, we will stop it, remove the mold and its spores, and disinfect the affected area.
