Crawlspace Medic knows how crucial it is to perform a thorough check before starting any work. Our priority is not only to ensure that the crawl space is structurally sound and safe, but also to meet the needs of the homeowner. To achieve this, we conduct a comprehensive crawl space inspection.
Foundation and Insulation
During our inspection process, the first thing we examine is the foundation’s condition. We look for any signs of cracking or settling in the foundation, as well as any moisture damage. Moisture can cause mold and mildew growth, which can pose health risks to those living in the home.
Our next focus is the insulation. If the insulation is damaged or inadequate, it can lead to various problems, such as increased energy bills and unsafe temperatures inside the home. Damaged insulation can also hide many issues that may be present in the crawl space.
We then scrutinize the ventilation system. Proper ventilation is essential for a healthy home and can help prevent mold and mildew growth. We check to ensure that the vents are working correctly and that there is enough ventilation to keep the air circulating adequately.
Crawl Space Conditions
Finally, we assess the crawl space’s condition itself. We examine for debris, standing water, or indications of animal infestation. Additionally, we inspect the walls and floors for signs of water damage, wood rot, or mold growth.
After our inspection, we provide a detailed report with photo and video of our findings and any recommendations for repairs or improvements to the homeowner. This report is a valuable resource that homeowners can use when deciding how best to maintain their crawl space.
We know how vital it is to conduct a comprehensive crawl space inspection before any work is done. That is why we take the time to thoroughly inspect every aspect of the crawl space and offer a detailed report of our findings.
