Many people wait too long to check their crawlspace or avoid doing so, which is a mistake that you won’t want to make. Inability to locate problems in your crawlspace will give mold and other issues a chance to cause trouble for you and your loved ones.
1. Catch Mold Early
Moisture is one of the most common problems that people find when they inspect their crawlspace for red flags, and it’s often present for years before they notice. Unless you take steps to solve the issue right away, it creates the perfect environment for mold growth. Mold that lives in your crawlspace can get into the air and put your health on the line, causing sneezing, eye irritation, headaches and prolonged fatigue.
2. Reduce Your Energy Bill
A reduced energy bill is another benefit that you can gain when you inspect your crawlspace and fix the issues that you uncover. Not all homeowners know that air from their home can escape from their crawlspace if they don’t properly insulate it, forcing their heating and cooling system to work much harder.
You won’t always notice the difference immediately, but it can cost you a lot of money over time if you overlook the problem. Looking at your crawlspace and making the needed repairs won’t take long, and you will save a lot of money over time.
3. Spot and Repair Leaks
If one of the pipes in your crawlspace starts to leak, you will want to know about it as soon as possible so that you can take action. Not only do leaky pipes increase your water bill, but they also make it easy for mold to grow. In addition to mold, you will also need to worry about water damage if you don’t take prompt action to resolve the issue and to safeguard yourself from future complications.
4. Keep Pests Out
Insects, rodents and other pests will effortlessly gain access to your home if you have small cracks or openings in your crawlspace. If you allow these invaders to get inside, it can take a lot of money to get rid of them and reverse the damage that they can cause.
5. Achieve Peace of Mind
Inspecting your crawlspace in the spring will let you know that you don't need to worry about mold, pests or other problems, giving you peace of mind. Taking a few steps in advance can work wonders when it comes to keeping you and your family out of harm's way.
