Many homeowners only have their crawl space inspected as part of their home-buying process, and never think of it again. Some don’t even know what to look for, or why it’s important. We’re going to go over some of the most common signs that you may need professional crawl space service.
There are some smells that you just don’t want in your home, and the musty smells of mildew and mold are often among them. These smells can often be recognized in an instant, but can take an eternity to find and get rid of, it seems. However, those smells may be the result of a poorly sealed crawl space that needs some professional attention.
Seeing mold in areas of the home that may have direct or indirect access to the crawl space, such as in cabinets under the sink, can be a solid indicator that your crawl space is not as sealed as it should be. This will often require professional help to test and identify the mold, but also to effectively remove it.
When you turn on your furnace for the season, and it just doesn’t seem to warm your floors enough, you might be losing heat to crawl space drafts. If your crawl space isn’t sealed well, it can sap the heat from your floors, and allow it to escape with the drafts, leaving you with chilly toes.
Not only will your floors be colder, but your HVAC will be less effective overall. If you have noticed that your HVAC equipment is working harder to maintain the same conditions, call a professional to come to take a look at your crawl space and see if it’s allowing heating and cooling energy to float away.
The health of a home’s foundation is crucial to its longevity and resilience. A home with a damaged or settling foundation may come to realize that home is no longer structurally sound after the conditions have progressed too far. Here are some readily-apparent signs of foundation shifting, settling, or damage that should be investigated by a company with professional foundation repair experience.
If your home has difficulty routing water away from it, sometimes due to poor grading of the lot, you can almost guarantee there will be foundation problems like cracks or leaks from the previous pressure of the saturated soil. If you see puddles in your lawn, your foundation will need professional sealing and possibly repairs.
Smoothly operating windows and doors require being mounted in a structure that is square and level, and if either one of those conditions changes, the windows and doors can become nearly impossible to easily operate. They will stick, bind, or even just squeak, and can be an early indicator that the foundation may be shifting. This is the perfect time for an inspection.
A shifting foundation means a structure that is moving as well, and this movement can sometimes be seen in things as small as cracks in the drywall or plaster of the home’s interior. These cracks are serious early indicators of potential problems, you should get professional help out as soon as possible.
If foundation settling happens for too long, or the shift is particularly severe, the same mechanisms that cause cracking drywall can eventually cause the walls of the structure to separate from the rest of the building. This can make the home unsafe for habitation quickly.
As you can see there are tons of signs that you may need crawl space or foundation repair in the Asheville area, and many will initially seem like much less serious problems. Just remember, even if they seem like they aren’t very serious, they can still result in incredibly serious effects on the home itself.
