Crawl Space Inspection

Do you have questions about your crawl space? Maybe you wonder if it is letting moisture into your home, or you have mold and you can’t figure out why. No matter what the issue is with your crawl space, we are happy to perform a free crawl space inspection.

All of our inspections are performed by Certified Indoor Environmental Consultants. These people have the education necessary to understand what is going on with your crawl space and to be able to devise solutions that will work for you there. Once we’ve examined your crawl space, we will come up with a solution for you, based on the principles of building science.

 

Moisture in Your Crawl Space

One of the things we look for in your crawl space is moisture damage. This can look like mud puddles, sunken foundations, or water damage to wooden beams. No matter what it looks like, our inspectors will find it, note it, and figure out how to mitigate it for you.

Moisture damage in your crawl space doesn’t just affect your crawl space. It can impact your entire home. In fact, moisture damage can cause all sorts of problems in your home. It can lead to mildew throughout your home, and even mold growth or structural damage. The worst types of damage don’t happen unless you leave your crawl space wet for a while, though. That’s why it’s important to have a crawl space inspection done at the first sign of a problem.

 

Mold Inspection (and Mildew!)

Our experts will also look for evidence of mold and mildew in your crawl space. While these are not usually toxic, there are certain types that can cause serious illness. If anyone in your home is allergic to either mold or mildew, they may struggle with symptoms even if the type of mold is non-toxic.

If we find mold in your crawl space, we will figure out the extent of the problem. Sometimes, the mold is only growing in the crawl space. Other times, though, it can travel up and into the rest of your home. This requires more extensive mitigation, though we can still get rid of the mold for you.

Once we have completed your crawl space inspection, we’ll let you know what we’ve found. We’ll also let you know what it will take to get your home back the way you need it to be. Our environmental experts will use the most updated methods and means to make your home safe and moisture-free for years to come.
