A crawlspace is a shallow and uninhabitable area, usually between the soil and the first floor of the home. Crawlspace Inspections provide access to the electrical, plumbing and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems located below the first floor.
Water control and management in the crawlspace is essential for maintaining a house. The most common problem associated with wet crawlspaces is that moist conditions can lead to wood destroying fungus that deteriorates exposed framing, as well as the infestation of wood destroying insects, such as termites. In exceptional cases, water penetration into a crawlspace can lead to the undermining of the foundation.
