Why Is Crawl Space Restoration Important?

Your crawl space provides several functional purposes. First, it helps circulate water, air, and electricity throughout your home. In fact, nearly 40 percent of the air in your home comes from the crawl space. You want that air to be as clean as possible, and that means that your crawl space should be clean and well-maintained. Some pests can cause damage to electrical wiring that can pose a fire risk, and other pests can endanger the structural integrity of your home.

Your crawl space also provides easy access for any repairs that may need to be made to the first level of your home. If the space is overrun with insects, pest, and nests, you might have a hard time accessing the areas you need to, and you may have trouble convincing a repairman to do the work on your behalf.

Pests are often attracted to crawl spaces because of the water and shelter they provide. The space is often small, warm, and dark, providing pests with the perfect spot to nest and breed year round. Crawl space infestations can occur during any time of the year, but they are often more common during the fall and the winter as animals seek to escape the cold, moist weather outdoors. Many pests reproduce at a prolific rate, and that means that a small infestation can quickly become very hard to treat.

Combined with the health risks and potential of structural damage, you don’t want your crawl space to go untreated for long, and it is critical to find an experienced, reputable Portland exterminator.
