Similar to the Attic, the crawlspace is often overlooked in regards to regular cleaning and maintenance.
In fact, many homeowners don’t even know they have a crawlspace! Usually found in pier & beam homes under your flooring, crawlspaces are usually no more than 1 to 3 feet in height. If your home doesn’t have a solid foundation or basement, chances are that you have a crawlspace.
Also like the Attic, it is important to keep the crawlspace properly ventilated, insulated and cleaned to maintain optimal home health. Blocked vents, fallen debris, and inadequate vapor barrier or insulation can lead to moisture buildup. This condensation evaporates and permeates the surrounding structure, leading to rot, mold growth, and ultimately integrity failure of the building itself. Additionally, the warm moist space offers an inviting sanctuary for a variety of pests and insects to occupy uninterrupted.
A Guardian Crawlspace Cleanup:
If you are just now realizing that you have a crawlspace, chances are you need to have it cleaned. Rather than going through the hassle of cleaning it yourself, trust the pros at Guardian to get the job done right!
Our skilled technicians will remove any old and infested batting insulation from the sub floor and replace it with new insulation. The crawlspace is then deodorized with a non toxic sanitation spray. Old vapor barrier is removed and replaced, and any entry points apart from the vents are sealed to prevent further pest access.
