One of the most neglected areas in the home is the crawlspace. Having your crawl space inspected should be a regular item on your to-do list. It should be inspected as often and as vigilant as your roof, basements, attic, or gutters. That’s how important it is.
A crawl space inspection is a great idea for any homeowner. It tells you whether your home is safe or not. It can also reveal potential health risks that you didn’t know about.
If you’re buying or selling a home, a crawl space inspection should be completed before the sale closes. This gives buyers full disclosure of what they’re buying.
Most homeowners don’t spend a significant amount of time in their crawl space. Generally, this forgotten space is used for storage if anything at all. And even if you do go into your crawlspace often, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to spot potential problems.
A home inspector looks for things that you wouldn’t be able to see otherwise detect. They can help identify problems that could become larger issues down the line. This way, you can address problems before they cost you lots of money.
Consider taking a peek at your crawlspace today. If the idea of doing that makes you nervous, hire a professional to do this for you.
