Let us inspect your crawlspace to ensure that it is safe.
You may have heard the term “crawlspace”, but are not sure what it is or whether or not your home has one. A crawlspace is the unfinished space of a home or building between the ground and the first floor. It is called a crawlspace because typically, it measures between one and three feet high, so there is only enough room to crawl. This space is often built when building a basement is not practical or if it is too expensive. A crawlspace provides a buffer between the damp ground and wooden structures of your home and gives you access to wiring, plumbing, and heating and cooling systems.
Now that you know what a crawlspace is, you may be wondering if there is anything you need to do to maintain yours. Without proper maintenance, your crawlspace is susceptible to pests, moisture, heat loss, and other problems. If the proper care is not taken, these problems can damage your home’s foundation, introduce toxins into the air in your home, and increase your heating bill. That’s why we offer the services you need to keep your crawlspace clean, dry and safe.
The first thing we will do is inspect your wood and joists for moisture. If we find your insulation is wet or there are signs of mold, we will install specialized dehumidifiers and liners to keep your crawlspace dry and mold-free. When we are finished, you can feel confident that your Jacksonville, Florida home is safe and your crawlspace is free of moisture, pests and heat loss.
