Understanding the Importance of Crawl Space Cleaning
Many property owners have the attitude of "out of sight, out of mind" when it comes to the nooks and crannies of their homes. While it makes sense to focus your cleaning energies and resources on areas of your residential property that you and your guest see regularly, it's essential to recognize the dangers that could be lurking out of sight.
Crawl spaces are notorious for growing and harboring bacteria. While this may not seem like a big deal, mold and mildew can pose considerable health threats to you and your loved ones and attract undesirable pests into your home, too.
Ensuring that these spaces are regularly maintained is crucial to the ongoing safety of your home and everyone in it.

Basements and crawl spaces are two of the most common areas of mold growth in the home. Many families don’t often spend much time in their basements, and rarely if ever peek into their crawlspaces. This means mold problems in these areas, much like attic mold, are often not discovered until the problem has already grown to a significant size.
Most mold issues in crawl spaces are caused by high moisture and humidity. Consider the location of the crawlspace or basement water damage it sits underneath your home right on top of the earth. Many crawl spaces have a plastic vapor barrier, but many don’t. Soil and dirt from the earth contain moisture. And moisture is one of two requirements for mold growth (the other being a food source such as the wood that acts as the ceiling of the crawlspace). And since moisture forms so easily in confined areas, dirt crawl spaces are fertile breeding grounds for mold.

Eliminating Mold Caused by a Flooded Basement
**IMPORTANT: If your sump pump fails and you’ve got a flooded basement, you MUST contact a professional water damage and dry-out company within 24 hours so they can bring in their equipment to rapidly dry the basement. In other words, eliminate the mold before it has a chance to grow
What Should You Look For?
You may be able to easily check for signs that your crawl space needs cleaning just by opening it up and looking in with a flashlight. If you notice mold, animal droppings, or water discoloration, all of these indicate that it's time for a cleaning. Smell may also let you know that it's needed, as foul odors emanate from both animal waste as well as mold.
The disease, mold, allergens, and generally "rancid air" that can fester in a dingy old crawlspace can seep up into the air in your living spaces. If your ducts run through the crawlspace, then it's even more likely bad crawlspace air will pollute your good "upper level" air.
A much as 40% of the air circulating in and out of a home passes through the crawlspace, and breathing contaminated air can cause respiratory problems, allergic reactions, or worse.
Plus, diseases can spread from rodents (alive or dead), insects, and germ-infested water and dampness.
A total crawlspace makeover can save you as high as 30% on your monthly energy bill. How? By eliminating the conditions that attract insulation-destroying rodents and sealing holes to keep them out. By replacing damaged insulation if necessary, by air sealing, and by upgrading your ducts if they're inadequate.
By preventing air coming in/out through the crawlspace from diluting your conditioned indoor air, you won't have to spend as much to heat/cool your home.
