Crawl spaces are a bit like the bottom of our shoes in a lot of ways. We can walk around and often, we will clean the shoes and make sure that they look polished and ready to go. Suited and booted is the phrase. But also, we never look at the soles, or we certainly won’t clean the soles.

We wouldn’t dream of inviting guests over to our house if our living rooms are untidy, would we? Also, we wouldn’t dream of letting our guests go into the bathroom or the kitchen if the walls are dirty. Now, just as we wouldn’t walk into a party with our shoes a complete mess, but we might leave a trail of dirt in the carpet after us, we just don’t pay attention to the crawl space. Although it is not the part of the house that people see, it is nevertheless a very important aspect and it should be something that we are talking about.
What is a Crawl Space?
A crawl space is essentially a hollow area under a building that sits right between the ground floor and the dirt below. Originally, they were made to prevent certain animals reaching houses and also to stop buildings falling prey to nature’s elements in the way that they sometimes can. They are not that big - hence the name crawl space and we only tend to go in them when we absolutely have to because sometimes, rats live there! This is also a convenient place to hide the appliances that the house relies on such as plumbing, conditioning and electric wiring. So, all in all, there are many benefits to these spaces.

The thing is about crawl spaces, they are often prey to rot and to mold, which are never good things. Why? Because they can damage the foundations of a house and they can be the source of spreading mold. Before it gets too far, you should seek help to avoid problems somewhere down the line. Odors, cracks, mold - none of it is a problem until you realize how much is contained in the crawl space and how much the running of the house relies on them.
