Crawl spaces can be dark, dirty and even a little creepy. You may have avoided ever entering your crawl space. Yet, the crawl space is one of the most important areas of a house. It is often the home to plumbing pipes, electrical wiring, heating and air conditioning equipment and ductwork as well as gas lines, insulation, framing and foundation walls. These are all important components of your house.
Inspecting your crawl space is one way to properly maintain your home and catch potentially costly repairs early. Here are some examples of what you might find in your crawl space:
Don’t bury your head in the couch pillows and ignore your crawl space. Take the opportunity to check out your crawl space and note areas of concern. If the thought of entering your crawl space is too intimidating, you can always hire a professional such as a licensed home inspector and pest technician.
