Understanding the Layout of Your Crawl Space and How to Properly Care for It
Here at Foundation Repairs & Home Improvements we are fully aware that most homeowners do not give much focus, let alone provide proper care of, the crawl space in their homes. Most of these spaces are often times difficult to access which is the number one reason why so many homeowners neglect them. It is important to recognize that proper care and maintenance is important to every aspect of your home’s structure.
We understand that many of these small spaces consist of heavily exposed duct work along with layers and layers of dirt and offer very little room for movement. Despite these obstructions and challenges, it is still critical that you give proper care to these very unfamiliar spaces so as to avoid costly repairs to your home’s structure down the road.
The ductwork for many of your appliances, including your washer, dryer, and HVAC system are vented to the outside via your crawl space. If this small but somewhat important space is poorly insulated or if ductwork that is constructed through it becomes exposed or damaged there is a high risk of energy loss in your home. In addition, when these conditions exist you are apt to experience fluctuations and inconsistencies in your home’s temperature control which can ultimately lead to increased moisture in the atmosphere and ultimately to mold infestation in your living space.
In this very secluded space in your home, you will find a variety of plumbing pipes that run along its ceiling. These plumbing pipes need routine care and maintenance. Temperature changes that occur from season to season can result in the formation of condensation on the pipes which, when coupled with moisture in the atmosphere leads to dangerous mildew and mold growth.
There are also many wires that produce power to your home that run through your crawl space. It is essential that you keep these wires strong and protected from mice and other rodents so as to ensure the safety and overall comfort of your home and family.
