Many newer homeowners, particularly first-time home buyers, may not be familiar with crawl spaces or why they are so important to keep maintained. Here are some signs that your home may need Falcone to come to evaluate the condition of your crawl space and the impact it has on your home.
One sign that your crawl space needs to be professionally serviced is that it is sapping the warmth from your floors. If you’ve recently turned on your heat but your floors are still cold, you may be losing heat to your drafty crawl space, and it might be time to call a professional to have a look.
There are a lot of unpleasant smells in the world, and wet, dank, musty smells are some of the worst, particularly when you can’t find the source to clean them. If you are noticing a lasting musty smell that you can’t seem to locate, it might be an indicator of a damp crawl space that is breeding mold or mildew.
Noticing mold in ground-level areas of your home could be a sign that your crawl space needs to be sealed and the mold remediated. Mold grows best in dark, moist, warm areas, so if you can eliminate or seal those you can stop the spread. However, with some mold types and the areas they grow, you’ll need professional help.
Since your crawl space is a barrier between your home and the outside, it can lead to significant heating and cooling loss if not properly sealed. If you’ve noticed that using your HVAC equipment raises your energy bills more than usual, it may be time to have your crawl space inspected.
Most homes get a foggy window now and then, but seeing higher levels of condensation in your home is a good sign that your crawl space is letting in warm, humid air from outside.
Falcone not only performs the best crawl space service around, but we are also able to perform service to home foundations and other structural support features. Here are some of the things to keep an eye out for in your home, that may indicate you need professional foundation repair.
When the foundation shifts or settles, it’s not uncommon to see large floor spans become saggy, bouncy, or even just soft. If you see this, one of the first things you should do is contact a foundation repair company to come to take a look.
If your windows and doors have been sticking, binding, or squeaking a lot more recently, it could be a sign that your home is no longer level or square. This is often due to the foundation movement.
Noticing cracks in plaster and drywall is a good sign that things are beginning to move, and that you may have caught it before it got too serious. Talk to a professional soon.
If early foundation settling and movement aren’t looked at, there could be grave consequences later on. One of these potential outcomes is that the walls of your structure could begin separating from one another. To prevent this, make sure foundation settling is taken care of while still in the early stages.
If your home has always had challenges with draining water away from it following storms, you may have already noticed the problems that can cause by your foundation. The saturated soil can put thousands more pounds of load against the concrete than it was rated for. Big teams and heavy equipment are often needed to regrade the lot to help drainage.
Many homeowners haven’t had the crawl space and foundation inspection for their homes, so getting that done can provide much-needed insight into the health and overall condition of their homes. Not only can it help prevent more serious repairs down the line, but it can make sure your home is as energy efficient as possible. Reach out today and find out how we can help with your next project.
