Crawl Space Clean Up
Crawl space cleaning is one of those essential activities that homeowners don’t think about until something goes wrong. In contrast to other visible spaces of your home, a crawl space is usually obscured from your view. Nonetheless, a crawl space requires the same attention and care you give to the rest of your home. Homeowners are often unaware of the problems that can occur in hard-to-reach areas like crawl spaces. An example is when raccoons, mice, rats or bats have nested in your crawl space. These pose a high probability of contamination in your homes insulation from feces and urine. Without attention, these contaminants and fumes can spread throughout your home and put you and your loved ones health at risk. It is for this reason, that crawl space cleaning and decontamination should be placed as a priority when maintencing your home.
Other things to consider when thinking about your crawl space are mold, mildew, dust mites and allergen particles that can potentially invade your home and affect your homes air quality. Particularly in the Pacific Northwest, these micro-organisms and agents can breed rapidly in unattended, moist environments. When left unmatinenced, a crawl space may become breeding ground for these offensive intruders. Even causing health issues if they cycle into your air space, making cleaning and decontamination of your crawl space necessary to protect family, pets and visitors.
