Crawlspaces do a wonderful job of hiding in plain view. They are forgotten places and corners of your home. However, most cases of structural damage start from the crawlspace.
The crawlspace is mostly unattended. Homeowners generally remain aloof to what happens down there. However, it is one of the most exposed areas to moisture and water damage. A thorough inspection of the crawlspace from time to time can help you address many problems at the start.
A-Co Restoration provides crawlspace inspection and cleaning to help homeowners in Nampa, ID. Our experts will crawl into the crawl space areas of your home and look for potential problems. We give advice based on the inspection and we can help clean it up if there is an issue with water damage or mold.
Dangers of Crawlspace Damage
Crawlspaces contain the foundational walls, plumbing, and flooring support. Any damage to the foundational walls and support ultimately results in structural damage. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain the crawlspace.
Crawlspaces are exposed to moisture and humidity which also makes them a breeding ground for mold. Mold feeds on the cellulose in the wood which puts foundational walls and siding at significant risk of deteriorating conditions.
The crawlspace is also a haven for flooding and excess moisture. Because crawlspaces are often ignored, many homeowners fail to notice the water damage in the crawlspace. Excess moisture can cause irreversible damage if not addressed in time.
