Crawl Space Cleaning
Due to 40% of the air in your house flowing through the crawl space, a dirty crawl space impacts your home in major ways.
Poor Air Quality
A dirty crawl space is a cozy haven for allergens, mold, and pests. Once moisture gets into your dirty crawl space, it facilitates the growth of mildew and mold. Also, it attracts more pests and insects into your home. This allows allergens, germs, and mycotoxins to flow into your living space.
Higher Energy Bills
If your crawl space is dirty and cold, chances are your air conditioner will have a hard time heating your home. The end result is always drafty rooms, cold floors, and high energy bills.
Pests love warm spaces that are dark and infrequently visited. This makes your dirty crawl space the ideal habitat for ants, spiders, roaches, squirrels, mice, rats, hornets and even snakes.
